5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable graphic novel, 13 Jun. 2003
This review is from: Cosmic Odyssey (Paperback)
Written in 1989, shortly after the Crisis on Infinite Earths, this gives a new chance for the New Gods from Jack Kirby's Fourth World achance to shine. The most powerful DC villain, Darkseid, dark god of the hellish world of Apokolips, has spent millenia looking for the anti-life equation which he believes will enable him to conquer the universe. Yet when Metron, the top scientist of the New Gods, unleashes the antilife equation into this universe, Darkseid knows he'll need help in stopping its destructive powers, so he turns to Earth's greatest heroes.
This is an excellent story which mixes well known characters like Batman and Superman with the New Gods as well as less famous ones like Starfire and the Demon, so you get to see a lot of characters in one book, with each getting their chance in the spotlight. The anti-life entity is not the most imaginitve or well characterised villain but its deadly servants serve well to challenge the heroes' mettle.
Basically this is a cool galactic adventure with lots of mayhem, and a very tragic mistake by replacement Green Lantern John Stewart, one which will haunt him for years. Of course, Darkseid will seek to betray his allies, but the wily Batman has his own ace up his sleeve. The artwork is unusual but fun. definitely recommended, especially for beginners to the DC Universe
