    Another good Final Crisis tie-in. This will be an interesting series to watch as Rucka leads some of his favorite characters on the next step of their lives. Read Full Review

    To wrap things up, this is a strong debut of a mini-series that is certain to be celebrated by some fans and derided as inaccessible by others. Read Full Review

    It is for this that we honor you, Dr. Light. For everything you were and everything you could have become, if it wasnt for the horrid, horrid vengeance that was brought down upon thee. I pray you find a safe place in the after-life. I hear its better there anyway. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Aug 13, 2008

    One thing that has me a little cautious at recommending this issue is the fact it's $3.99 an issue and supposedly five issues long. That's a hefty price tag for a relatively light, storywise, issue and I'm unsure if it's worth paying $20+ for five issues of something that will probably be a $5 trade on Amazon in a few months, but I suppose that could be said for just about any story.

    I'm curious to see where the rest of "Final Crisis: Revelations" is heading. My hope is that by the end we've got a stronger sense of how the new Spectre will operate, and exactly what his place in the DC Universe is. For now, at least I can enjoy seeing Crispus and Renee together again for a bit. It's a good, if slightly shaky start. Read Full Review
