Over the years, Earth's greatest heroes have triumphed over evil time and time again. But now comes an evil force nothing can stand against - Darkseid, and the awesome, terrible Anti-Life Equation - and the heroes have already lost! It begins with the death of Orion, a god from space - and suddenly Superman is gone, Batman captured, Wonder Woman turned evil, the Martian Manhunter murdered, and time and space fracturing. Only a secret from the beginning of humanity can save existence as we know it - but is it already too late? From the brilliantly creative mind of Grant Morrison ("JLA") and superstar artist JG Jones ("Wanted") comes an unsettling, thrilling, frightening and inspiring super-epic!
Acceptable. A book with obvious wear. May have some damage to the cover or binding but integrity is still intact. There might be writing in the margins, possibly underlining and highlighting of text, but no missing pages or anything that would compromise the legibility or understanding of the text.
Good. Connecting readers with great books since 1972. Used books may not include companion materials, some shelf wear, may contain highlighting/notes, and may not include cd-rom or access codes. Customer service is our top priority!
Publishers Weekly, 2009-06-29 Morrison's big, beautiful mess of an apocalypse is gathered in this deluxe volume, along with one of the spinoff mini-series that took place between issues. Darkseid, one of the New Gods of Apokolips, is taking over the universe, broadcasting his antilife equation-a mathematical spell that drains all hope and emotion from those who hear it-through every mass communication vehicle available. Reality starts breaking down, time itself is collapsing; meanwhile, Batman is taken out of action and Superman can't help out as he needs to stay by Lois's hospital bedside or she will die. To say that there's a lot going on is an understatement; the plot is byzantine, and DC newbies will likely find it confusing and require multiple reads. Fanboys, on the other hand, will relish spotting all of the references to DC canon. There is an awful lot of setup and not much in the way of payoff until the very end, but Morrison-philes will enjoy his characteristic wordplay and fearless invention the whole time. Jones and Mahnke split the main art with skill and vision. (June) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
