I think so.

Is really hard to explain.
It’s the story where evil triumphs and yet a spark of hope for a miracle remains. It’s a story that actually ends with a stance against editorial interference and a battle between a force of creativity and imagination versus his father, a vampire that sucks the life out of stories.
It’s possibly the most meta-fictional comic that was a big name.
It’s basically the same thing as Infinity, but much more mystical and religious and metaphystical.
It’s also basically impossible to really follow unless you have some familiarity with the works of Jack Kirby at DC, Renee Montoya, Green Lantern comics, Batman at the time, Superman, and basically the last few years leading up to Final Crisis in the DC books.
It’s basically a final exam for DC superhero fans, if you can manage to read Final Crisis and go “who the fuck is that?” less than 5 times, you win at comics. It’s also the only comic series I recommend reading on a PC, just for the sake of having to reference things.
"YOU HAVE 24 HOURS TO SAVE THE UNIVERSE"
Fuck it, reblogging my old posts because Final Crisis was the grand finale of the 3rd era of DC comics.
Reading comic books this week.. It’s interesting to see how much of Morrison’s Marvel work is still going on.
Xorn and the death of Jean Grey over in Battle of the Atom, Cassandra Nova in X-force, Fantomx, Marvel Boy in Young Avengers and the rest of his cast and the crazy array of multiverses.
I mean, it’s not all Morrison, but seeing 2 of his characters as big bads of the week is pretty cool.
I really appreciate how Hank Pym is written in here, and the quick take on mental health issues that is much more positive than things have been in the past in comics.
