The overall result is a fun romp through modern DC comics, tied in to a collossal time travel adventure with typical Grant Morrison grandiose plot concepts - try a genocidal supercomputer sending a computer virus back in time to force the past to build the thing that they know will become the murderous supercomputer (killing a few generations of Supermen along the way)!
I thought this was super-good value for a giant slab of fun comics.
One of my greatest problems here is that the main series all the additional issues (i.e. the bulk of the collection) revolve around is too short to fully expand on the concept Grant Morrison had for his expansive future arc. Like many events, the main story (as told in the mini-series alone) feels like a series of bullet points, rather than a strong or cohesive story, and the additional tie-ins, while expanding the concept and scope of the future world, don't actually add much to the central plot, which is pretty thin.
On an alternative point, if you just like the future setting GM has created for the arc, then this touches on every DCU character at the time and transposes a version of them in this future. Which is really fun.
IMO, this would have made for a great 6 issue arc in Morrison's seminal JLA run, but as a full-blown company-wide event, it falls flat due to the lack of substance in the main storyline.
With amazing artwork and storylines that would teach anyone of the value of the comic book genre. Superman is at his finest here and so is the dc production staff!
