"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"--

Some really fine artwork does not come close to compensating to meandering, turgid writing by Morrison. Probably good to skim it - if you can - for historic background as this arc is rather important in the DC canon... but oy.

A good take on the Superman & Batman franchise. Artwork amazing. Story better then the average Superman & Batman. People that have grown up with S&B will probably like it more then teens and younger.

What a mess. Morrison has really gone of the rails.

i didn't like thse story. It was a bit hard to follow. If I remember the story correctly, New God Orion is killed from a bullett traveled thru time from the future. Darkseid and his minions are on Earth but appear to look human.

Ok Storyline but the Artwork could have been better.

It's pretty much impossible to understand this book unless you've read the corresponding adventures of the characters featured here. I thought I had a pretty good knowledge of the DC universe and everything leading up to this book, and I still had no idea what was happening most of the time.

Convoluted, to say the least. Morrison often writes as if he's snorting drugs, or as if the reader has to be snorting drugs. DC has done better crossover events then this one.

The basic premise here is Darkseid has caused a problem in the multiverse, destroying the Earth that holds the rest away from Hell. He has also murdered Orion, part of the New Gods. In doing so, he is attempting to brainwash all of existence so that he can rule, with significant members of his Apocalypse taking over different people. This leads to many of the iconic superheroes and villains becoming brainwashed soldiers of evil.

I wanted to love this. I really did. Especially given that I am a life-long DC fan, and my faves Black Canary and Green Arrow have prominent roles, but the story had holes in it big enough for Giganta to walk through. I assume this is because Final Crisis was one of these title spanning series that comics have become so enamoured with. This volume, by focusing on the main story, doesn't gather all of the individual issues which means we are probably missing details. And this left the story a bit of a mess.
