Stunned I am stunned This is absolutely stunning Where to even startThe closest thing I can compare this to is Crisis On Infinite Earths It's on a much smaller scale setting wise just the one Earth but the cast of characters is immense so complex and otherworldly I won't even get into it And the writing is ripe with social criticism and politics And there are many plotsThe story much like Kurt Busiek and Alex Ross's Marvels is told from a bystander's perspective a pastor who has lost faith and begun to envision the end of days He eventually guides Spectre through the destruction to cast judgment on humanity and whether humans or super humans are responsible One subplot is humans versus super humans Humans have suffered from the belligerence of the new guard and the resignation of the old guard While the war rages the humans are forced to become involved and protect themselves And are they guilty for having overstepped and become involved in a war of gods or have the super humans reaped what they've sown Another subplot is Superman's path to redemption which could be applied to all the super humans for failing to protect the humans and uphold a higher moral code While they fight among themselves they commit a gross disservice and injustice disgracing the name of hero Social criticism Themes to name a few Fascism Totalitarianism Democracy Capital punishment War and peace Ageism Capitalism Oligarchy America The list goes on and on So Mark Waid killed on the writing And Alex Ross as usual had me drooling over the artwork I would very much like to own something framed and signed by him
