    (While everything falls apart, Doug Mahnke's art remains fantastic in CBR's preview!) Read Full Review

    The Revolution completely enjoyed Final Crisis Superman Beyond #2. This was a wild, bizarre and fun ride. Still, the fact remains that Final Crisis Superman Beyond #2 is definitely an acquired taste and is not for everyone. If you love Morrison's style of writing or if you love everything connected to the Multiverse then I would recommend picking up this issue. For everyone else, I would probably recommend that you pass on picking up this issue. Read Full Review

    Despite these few problems, I really enjoyed my experience with Superman Beyond. It has proven itself the most important of the Crisis tie-ins, and it offers a tantalizing glimpse of how the story as a whole could have played out. I may very well be in the minority on this one, but I'd say your Crisis reading experience is incomplete without this one. For better or worse. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Rob G. Jan 25, 2009

    The thing I like about Morrison's comics is that they are meant to be reread because his stories work on multiple levels. In this day and age when comics are as expensive as they are, I think his stories offer maximum value for your dollar. Better yet, never once did I ever feel lost in this story, even though I knew very little back story. Morrison provides the necessary information in a way that doesn't slow down the story or make it feel like an encyclopedic entry of an aspect of DC continuity. I'll be rereading this entire series over and over again. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Koppy McFad Jan 27, 2009

    This is an exciting story and it has some very moving... and very frightening scenes which make Superman and the rest of the cast look very impressive but all in all, it still leaves the reader-- even the intelligent reader-- wondering what the heck just happened. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Jan 22, 2009

    Do you need to read this two-issue mini in order to appreciate Final Crisis? god I hope not. Everything that we have seen released thus far doesn't indicate it is important, which is why this may be one of the better morrison DC stories of the year. Floating in limbo (literally), morrison is able to stretch his legs and experiment with different ideas and conflicts, while playing with DC's legendary character (and all the characters inspired by him). The 3D gimmick doesn't work here, and the Final Crisis banner is about as accurate as Countdown Arena. All in all, this is probably a good morrison mini-series, but in light of all the other promises tossed nonchalantly our way, this series fails on so many levels. There's going to be a whole lot of head scratching going on, and a lot of "WTFs?", which ultimately leads me to give Superman Beyond 3D #2 a 1 Star Rating. Read Full Review
