By Mr. S. W. Steel VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
One of the most divisive books in recent history published by Dc Comics makes this a really tough book to review. Just by looking at the other reviews, both good and bad, you can see that opinion is really divided on this series. There is very little middle ground in the great debate about Final Crisis. Most people absolutely love it or absolutely detest it!
If you are going to love this book then firstly, you need to be a fan of Grant Morrison and like the fact that he is prepared to challenge the status quo of comics in terms of characters, storylines and settings. If you have read some of his other works(and liked them!) such as: Batman RIP, Batman:Black Glove, All Star Superman 1 and 2, Earth 2 and DC One Million and got on with them, then Final Crisis is going to be for you, because it leaves a lot of the work up to you. You have to be able to fill in the gaps and come up with conclusions yourself. Grant Morrison is a master at letting the reader get out of a book, what they are capable of getting out of it. This book is no exception.
Secondly, you are really going to have to be up to speed with some of the storylines that have gone before - the series 52 and Countdown to Crisis would definitely help, and it is probably worth a look at some of the older Crisis on Infinite Earths books two.

The plot is an awe-inspiring, sprawling saga that involves the multiverses, alternative heroes from these other universes and all of your favourite characters in the toughest of situations. You will find Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, Green Lantern, Lex Luthor, Darkseid and the Black Racer within these pages.

By Gareth Simon TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
This volume reprints Final Crisis #1-7; Final Crisis: Superman Beyond #1-2; Final Crisis: Submit #1; Final Crisis: Sketchbook #1.

I have to admit, not having any previous knowledge of this series, I was expecting another Infinite Crisis sort of storyline. Instead, we get a farewell to Jack Kirby's Fourth World, along with whatever else happened to be in Grant Morrison's head at the time, as Darkseid's minions are hiding out on Earth, awaiting his resurrection / transformation, as he reincarnates into/out of a human host, who turns out to be the Terrible Turpin. This is all foreshadowed by the murder of Orion, shot by a bullet from the future, which happens to pull Barry Allen out of time as it passes by. Apparently the New Gods have been killed somewhere along the way - an event which I missed - but not before Orion mortally wounded Darkseid, who is now falling into a personal Black Hole, and dragging the Earth into it with him. All the Supermen of the multiverse have to band together to fight Darkseid, while the Monitors who, err... monitor the multiverse squabble amongst themselves as the structure of reality starts to unravel. It is not entirely clear what is going on - a side effect or the said reality unravelling - though it could just be poor editing, as the writers of the Infinite Crisis admitted that they didn't have enough space to fill in all the details of their story; that might be happening here, or it could be a literary device, or both.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hugely Ambitious 23 April 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Right, well, before buying this book I spent a good while reading all of the other reviews on here and on other websites, simply because views on it are so massively opposed. Final Crisis really is the 'Marmite' of the DCU.
I will say this to anyone tempted to buy this book: read Crisis On Infinite Earths, Infinite Crisis and 52 first, they will help (or you could just Wiki them) and they're all amazing anyway. Of the three Crisis stories, this one is certainly the most complex and interesting.
The reason why I have not given Final Crisis five stars is because the writing often comes across as needlessly convoluted and, thus, a little arrogant, as if Morrison wanted to confuse the reader for the fun of it. This is especially true in the Superman Beyond issues half way through. Despite this confusion, the story is not all that complicated, but it does jump from one time and one location to another fairly frequently with little explanation and the major 'shock factor' turning points and revelations, the moments which are plot-changing and world-changing are incredibly dampened and downplayed; if this was a film, these moments would have no slow motion, no classical music and no gasps or loud and agonising screams. This is a very interesting approach to storytelling, making the entire book seem like one huge crisis, rather than several small ones, which is exactly what it is.
On the art side, J.G. Jones certainly delivers. The man behind the beautiful artwork of Mark Millar's Wanted has shown, once again, how to create a dark and gritty world that's also full of hope. Simply beautiful.

Final Crisis certainly has its good points and bad points but, overall, it's an exciting and excellent read and I recommend it to anyone who wants to read an ambitious story and experience an interesting (understatement) period in the DC Universe

5.0 out of 5 stars Best dc event I have read 11 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Grant morrison writing the new gods as God's bringing down the very fabric of reality, a lot of heavy hitters are put to one side and really seems to highlight the struggle against darkseid. Art is amazing as well, and the designs match the concepts well.
