Final Crisis #1 Review

Recently reviewed by me at CBR: Final Crisis #1, about which I write the following sentences: "This isn't just a giant team-up series. It's not a billion heroes from the DC Universe getting together to punch some shadowy bad guys or stop an alien invasion. This is the story of a planet, a universe, coming apart at the seams. It may not really be the "final" crisis, but the first issue makes it feel like it could be."

Read the entire review HERE.

I pulled two copies (one of each cover.) When I got to the store, a guy (close to my age, which always makes me feel good...) says, "Final Crisis sold out?"

So, I gave him one of mine. In some way, this represents growth on my part.

Just thought I'd share.

Ah, but which cover did you keep?

Based on that information, I'll be able to psychoanalyze you. Except, I already know the answer: you kept the Green Lantern cover, didn't you? I can read you like a book, man.

(Note: For my birthday, I bought myself all the Johns Green Lantern hardcovers. I like hardcovers.)

Actually, I kept the other one. That's because Jones (or designer Chip Kidd) said that there would be a progression or evolution on the covers. That interested me.

Oh, and Happy Birthday.

I got the non-Green Lantern cover as well. It was what they gave me and who am I to argue with those that put aside books for me?

(Although, the more I think about it, the more the Green Lantern cover works for me--mostly with Morrison's characterisation of the group here. Hal Jordan is showing us his "badge" like a traditional cop on the scene. Heh.)

And, happy birthday, mon ami.
