This book (and series) is the Sharknado of comics.
I really wanted to mark this book higher, but with all the unanswered questions, even now that the series has concluded and such a loose plot and “out there” dialogue, I can’t justify giving it a higher grade than a 2. Originally I gave it a 1, but to be honest, I actually had fun reading this book and series… Maybe it broke my brain?…
This final chapter is called “Answers”, but leaves too many unanswered… Darkseid’s father, why are the New Gods human, Why was Highfather disguised as Isa the dog, who the Messenger is, Why is his name “EL”, and what significance does that have to Superman’s own lineage being from the house of EL himself, and why was Darkseid afraid of him?
