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 Jack R
Format:Paperback
It is ambitious, visually striking, and garbled. The aesthetics and good intentions do not excuse the fact that this series is flawed inescapably by Morrison's unwilling to write a coherent story. There were events I was excited about, such as Batman's capture and demise but this never met the conclusion it deserved. Instead we have to follow the story along with unanswered just to lap the splashes of inferred knowledge from the great window that is Morrison's forehead. Does Morrison delight in being so deliberately obscure? Is he one of those people who thinks 'people don't get me'?

These huge cross over titles are all well and good in the right hands. The art style changes (which I don't mind but will annoy the purists) but what I can't stand is the sacrifice the story telling takes in place of the art. Pages are cluttered and frantic which really hinders the already choppy story telling. You find yourself repeatedly going back over the last few panels believing you've missed something, disappointed when you realise you haven't. Well, you have, it's just that Morrison decided not to put any detail or answers in.

It seems Morrison wrote his way into a hole his pretentious mind could not scramble out of as the ending seems lacklustre, bizarre and embarrassing (Superman's sing attack for example). This alienating piece is also riddled with poor characters. Mandrak being confused at the inner workings of Superman's use of sunlight reminded me of the comics of the 50's, a villain too stupid to properly be a threat to our hero who at the last minute stands, puff chested, and tells them the surprising truth before ordering police officers who are nothing to do with him to 'take him away'. On this golden age note, Darkseid is not scary at all.

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
