(Comic Books) Regarding Final Crisis



You've got to be kidding me.

Grant Morrison has officially gone around the bend. Animal Man was 20 years ago and it's carried his reputation ever since, but this new maxi-series is a special kind of crap.

We've essentially built up to a rip-off of Marvel Zombies. That's the best DC could do for their annual summer event? Really?

And I'm really, really tired of the New Gods. The powers-that-be should trot Darkseid out once a year to have a big fight with Superman and then GO AWAY.

Let's also acknowledge that while Kirby's creations might have worked in the '60s, there hasn't been a good New Gods story since Cosmic Odyssey, and that was a long, long time ago.

There are no good Granny Goodness stories. There are no good Big Barda stories. Hunger Dogs worked in Legends of the DC Universe, but every trip to Apokolips since (and I include Countdown in this) has been a faint echo of better times past.

The bloom is very off the DC flower right now.
