Flimsy Final Crisis Thoughts -- Here's an email I received from Dave:
I'm generally against these "big event books" although I did enjoy the concepts for House of M, Civil War, and Secret Invasion (the execution, not so much...and the tie-ins...CHRIST, the tie-ins...). I haven't bothered with any DC stuff aside from All-Star Superman since Grant Morrison is the best kind of acid trip.

Which leads me to my question: have you checked out Final Crisis at all? Amazon has the HC up for pre-order for $16.99 which seems ridiculously cheap. I've only read sample pages but for that price I decided to give the HC a shot. I know you enjoy Morrison as well which is why I've been hoping to see a Final Crisis review and get your take on it. Your two cents are often worth a great deal more.
I read all of Final Crisis, and ultimately I think the only worthwhile thing that came out of it was the Final Crisis Sketchbook, which had a pure view of Morrison's ideas and plans. Those plans went pretty seriously awry in the actual series itself. That, coupled with the unfortunate inability of JG Jones to do all the art for the entire series, resulted in what I thought was a profoundly disappointing final product. Getting it at a discount is certainly a wise idea, and you may get more out of it than I did, but I far prefer to just re-read Marvel Boy and remember how good the combination of Morrison and Jones once could be.

By the way, now is as good a time as any to remind you that if you buy something from an Amazon.com link or through the Lone Star Comics/MyComicShop.com ads and links on this site, it helps support this site, and is much appreciated by me.

Buy Final Crisis from amazon.com, or better yet, buy Marvel Boy from amazon.com.
