52 is just too much to take in.....
A year long weekly comic is an amazing undertaking. The fact that Johns, Rucka, Waid, Grant, Giffen, many pencillers and editors were able to complete this is an unbelievably huge achievement. There is no way around that. The problems lie with the inconsistencies that you would expect wit all the different people involved. Characters looked wildly different from issue to issue which was jarring and at times confusing. The story once again had high extremes and lows. Batwoman, Question, Black Adam, and mostly Booster Gold were all very good. Lobo, Adam Strange, Animal Man, Oolong Island, Red Tornado, Great Ten, and Metal Men are at times terrible. Overall, it was just too much and would have been better served as a few limited series.

An Okay Finish
The conclusion to DC comic's year long series 52. Although good in its own ways, this collection has the undesirable job of ending a long and engaging series and therefore loses some of its drama. Anyone who reads it would be somewhat disappointed. This ending plot shows the final fate of the three major superheroes Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman. It also wraps up the stories for the Question, the Metal Men, Booster Gold, Steel and Natasha, Black Adam, Animal Man and finally Elongated Man.Was this review helpful?

The problem with this volume is that none of the character's endings seem to be dramatic or spectacular enough to really call them an ending. In fact most of the stories are designed to continue storylines that take place in later comics.
All the same, if you've read the others don't miss this one. It's a real shame to end in cliffhangers.
