Final Crisis: Revelations #3 Review

Recently reviewed by me at CBR: Final Crisis: Revelations #3, about which I write the following sentences: "Issue #3 details the confrontation between the three good guys (the Spectre, the Question, and the newly-introduced Angel of Mercy) against an extra-evil Vandal Savage and the anti-life equation (which basically means a bunch of zombies with red eyes). The new Batwoman shows up too, as a red-eyed minion, in a brief scene where she's nothing more than fodder for a magical blast o' Spectre. Vandal Savage, on the other hand, has the mark of Cain on him, and he's walking the Earth with his anti-life slaves, wreaking havoc like an old testament force of evil. If it's the DC Universe in flames that you want, this series has it, but its all 'Sumbit!' and 'Darkseid is My Will!' and spiritual doubt and artwork that looks like it came from a 'WildC.A.T.S. Strikeforce' back-up story circa 1994. Philip Tan's work was better on the first issue of this series, so I'm guessing that his work on issue #3 is rushed, but Renee Montoya has never looked so grotesque and the backgrounds tend to be nothing more than hasty brush strokes."
