Meh. Hell adequately describes the monotony and boredom that comes with the life Scott Free has created for himself. This issue throws into whack all I've thought about this series previously. I really dislike the dialogue in this, but now that we know it's all fake and Scott wants this painfully dull life, I'm kind of stuck not knowing what to think. Does this dialogue feel any different from any more

It'll be a miracle if you can get through this mind-bending conclusion with your sanity intact! After his epic battle with Darkseid, Scott Free sees life a whole new way: he's the new Highfather of New Genesis, and he's madly in love with his wife and child. But what if it's all a lie? Did Mister Miracle really escape death way back in issue #1? No...

I see what King was trying to do with this issue, and this series as a whole, but it ultimately wasn't what I was looking for. I get the point that the issue barely manages to make evident, and though it's semi-clear what Scott's state is now and what it was through the entire series, it's still difficult to ascertain, and for a book that has repeatedly been stated to fit in with and affect the ma more

Just a perfect ending to one of the wildest rides in DC history. I wasn't prepared to love this comic as much as I did. This is one of the most touching Superman-Batman stories I've read and there have been so many great ones it almost seems like there'd be nothing more to tell. Now that I've read it I can't imagine ending this terrific series in any other way.

I‘ve never read any Injustice comic& also won’t. I lost all interest, when Taylor killed Scarecrow in #1. Glad he wasn’t dead in the end, but that’s only thanks to the game Injustice 2. So as for me I skip it. And put him on Flash.

It's kinda odd. This is wrong setting for a good Batman and Superman story.

But Taylor still does it. Awesome Batman/Superman -story. And a great send-off.

This makes the Injustice -series even more heartbreaking.

A surprisingly good ending to this series considering it's largely a flashback. It's bittersweet to once again see what Clark and Bruce were like before the events of the game, but it works well here because Tom Taylor is such a good writer who has spent a lot of time with these characters in this setting. He writes the Kents so well and their interactions are great with Bruce, the dialogue in the more

Caught between Batman and his unseen enemy, the Penguin has to think on his feet to avoid being taken down by either side. If he chooses one way, he goes to jail; if he chooses the other, he ends up dead. Then again, the choice seems obvious. Is Batman ready for a new kind of avian sidekick?

The overarching plot of Doomsday Clock continues to move at a snail's pace, but the book itself is so immersive with every panel that it's tough to complain. If there's one series that makes 32 pages feel much longer, it's this one, no doubt due to Johns and Frank's ability to work with the 9 panel grid.

You know how Q-tips have that warning not to insert them into your ear canal, but that's just to keep idiots from jamming them all the way in and hurting themselves, so everyone knows just to be careful when they insert them?

Geoff Johns' writing and the dialogue is terrific. The story of Reggie Long is sad, painfull and captivating and I can't wait to see how it will unfold in the coming issues (whenever that will be). As for the DC side of this series. Unfortunately we don't get to see much, which is kind of a bummer.
