Overview

What happens when evil wins? That's the question Superman, Batman, the Justice League and every being in the DCU have to face when Darkseid and his otherworldly legion of narcissistic followers actually win the war between light and dark. Featuring the deaths and resurrections of major DC characters, FINAL CRISIS is more than your average multi-part event-it's a deconstruction of Super Hero comics and a challenging, thought-provoking take on the modern, four-color icons.

This new edition includes story pages from Batman #682-683 in addition to Final Crisis #1-7, Superman Beyond #1-2 and Submit #1.

The only reason I bought this book is because it is written by Grant Morrison, who's one of the best comic book writers out there. But even that didn't save this book from the clutches of doom. The story doesn't make sense anyway you look at it . As you read it, the story jumps from one point to the other leaving us wondering what the hell happened. It's like it was written by a novice and not by a professional like Morrison.

Final Crisis is indeed DC's opus in the ever branching 'Crisis' lineage, and it is the publisher's most difficult to enjoy from a cold start. Final Crisis requires its reader to have a working knowledge of much of DC's history as well as an ability to interpret and find resolution in stories long since abanoned. The additional Superman run feels largely out of place and brings the narrative to a slow crawl. However, the artwork is top notch and the writing is superb..often rising to the grandiose occasion required of it's epic story. Final Crisis is both hit and miss. It delves into the concept of our heroes ultimate and complete defeat, the emptiness of victory, and the vacuum a need for ultimate power can create. For better or worse, Final Crisis is the opening salvo in the march towards the New 52.

As a long time comics fan, this was the most frustratingly confusing epic I've ever read. It made NO sense. None, whatsoever. It was a poorly plotted excuse to kill Batman and make an "impact" but in the end you're left wondering just what in the hell happened. DC used to be good at this sort of thing: see the original Crisis and, more recently, Sinestro Corps War. They have hope for redemption too: see the upcoming Blackest Night. But this is, bar none, the worst major event in comics history. It is atrocious.

very disappointing after the anticipated build-up. story was hard to follow & somewhat pointless. at times, it was slightly boring. it almost felt as if the creators had an idea but couldn't figure out how to bring that idea to an actuality. a big let down

This certainly isn't your Grandpa's cross-over event. In place of the usual clashing heroes and villains (or heroes and heroes, as the case has been lately), Morrison weaves a tale of ultimate defeat, asking the question "What happens when evil wins?" With Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and Superman all detained in one way or another, how can victory be achieved? Just about every character in the current DC Universe plays some role, in a story that spans multiple millennia and multiple universes. Definitely worth picking up, this truly is the final, most volatile crisis the heroes could ever face. NOTE: This volume can be enjoyed on its own, though "Seven Soldiers of Victory: Book Two" provides some nice prologue, and "Final Crisis: Companion" is worth picking up for the expanded funeral of the Martian Manhunter.

I have to give this graphic novel a couple dozen thumbs up!! This was one of the most anticipated storylines in recent DC comics history. It was shocking to the way the characters handled the events of Final Crisis. It was also fun to see Captain Carrot and the Zoo Crew, even if for a couple panels, again. All in all an EXTREMELY EXCELLENT story. Told wonderfully and including all the side stories that made it all fit together nicely.
