    And so on. The Spectre is a terrific device to examine spirituality and metaphysics in the DCU, but, as written, more often than not simply reeks of pretension and false intellectualism. If the above excerpt sounds at all intriguing (and it may, for those not familiar with the offal that surrounds it), dont doubt that it wont when repeated about a thousand times in various permutations without ever examining on a deeper level what exactly its trying to say. Its easy to sound profound (oh, how easy it is!), but if DeMatteis indeed has a grasp of the concepts he wishes to explore, he fails in conveying this understanding to the reader. This implies that either he does not trust his audience with more than a shallow lecture in his divine philosophy or, worse, the prophet himself doesnt know what hes preaching. Read Full Review
