Thoughts: Well, Grant Morrison's magnum opus is here and...it was actually pretty good. I thought it got a bit choppy in places, especially the parts with Anthro and Kamandi. I'm also not a huge fan of Morrison's Seven Soldiers New Gods, but other than that, a fun read.
Lots of awesome happened. We had to ever pugnacious Dan Turpin trying to punch out Darkseid, John Stewart actually working as an architect, Oan quarantine procedures, Metron playing Prometheus and the death of a legend.
That was one part of the book that just didn't do it for me. J'onn just kind of...gets stabbed. I know it was supposed to be a quick, brutal end to shock the superhero world, but I don't appreciate how little fanfare it gets within the book itself. Not only is J'onn in his new, rather unpopular form when he dies, but he only gets one freaking panel. We don't even get the ubiquitous shot of the body lying on the floor!
I know it sounds like I'm complaining a lot about a book I claimed to enjoy, but I'm just highlighting what I felt were weaknesses in an otherwise interesting book. Overall, I'm excited to see ho this plays out.
Also: A Mirror Master, Doctor Light team up? How has no one thought of this before?!
Ollie Watch: Of course it would be Green Arrow who goes on TV to rant about the death of his friend and make threatening remarks to his killers. You go Ollie!
