Has anyone else finished this? I know it’s still early on release day.
A few things stood out to me and I’m wondering what others think.
(Trying to add some lines so spoiler lines don’t show up on the main page and ruin it for people)
First, was the entirety of Doomsday Clock written off as just another reality? I know it’s not a final statement but one panel that felt like a last minute thought kind of made the whole thing seem inconsequential.
Second, was anything even resolved over the last 39 issues? The JL has made zero progress against “doom”, the JSA was written away, and the story concludes without a conclusion. This whole series has felt like a very very very long prologue to whatever Snyder and Capullo are doing next.
Don’t get me wrong, I have enjoyed it and the art is good but this whole thing was sold as an event and besides trying to sell Year of the Villain tie ins I can’t think of any real consequences to the DCU.
I hope the Metal sequel starts soon (probably spinning out of Hell Arisen) because I want to move on.
Any thoughts on that sequel teaser? I’m wondering if Mayhem will be in the title. I’m hoping it ties up Metal and JL lose ends, cleans up or clarifies DC continuity, and doesn’t hinge on Batman Who Laughs. Enough of him.
