Bah. So Final Crisis #7 came out yesterday and while reading it I was still confused as to what was going on and how this matters to the rest of the DC universe. I would have been okay with this event series if it was entertaining in its own right like Superman Red Son, but there was just too many things going on without any one of those story elements having any frame of reference for the reader as to why they should care. Really the whole series has been a chore to read. Grant Morrison (the writer), often has too many ideas that he introduces in any one of his stories without fleshing out those ideas before going on to his next big idea (for good Morrison stories check out All Star Superman, Filth, Animal Man, and Doom Patrol. I guess I'm just not taking the right drugs (actually the only drug I'm ingesting is caffeine).
The art in this last issue by Doug Mahnke was mostly good (I'm guessing that because he was brought in at the twelve o clock hour to do this issue is what required the multiple inkers for this issue) and I think he would have been a better fit for the whole series over J.G. Jones (who didn't even do all of the previous six issues). I hope that those who bought Final Crisis at my store got more enjoyment out of this "event" than I did and I hope that it doesn't sour you on DC superhero comics (but I could understand it if it does).
I wish I had photoshop skills to insert a drawing or photo of Superman sitting in that lounge chair in place of that guy on this cover of that Supertramp album that accompanies this blog entry - now that would be comedy (but maybe it wouldn't be as appreciated by those who aren't as familiar with Supertramp as I am)!
