agreed SonofBatman - if you're gonna do a rating, you should have a rationale for the number. Not just tank it for laughs.

My god this is great. And Hector Hammond too - I love how despite DC changes on a whim sometimes, Morrison rolls with it, explains it away in a sentence or a panel, and moves on to the story he was telling. Man, I'm going to miss Morrison and Sharp on this series.

Absolutely phenomenal.

Morrison's mike drop is one for the ages as the Emerald Knight takes on unimaginable odds; nothing new of course.

I love how, just like the Gentry and Empty Hand from Multiversity, the final enemy could be considered analogues for corporatism and manufactured story control while the new guardians are placeholders for his own disillusionment with DC's ne more

The art is great, but the story? grim and gritty Adam Strange, just what the world needs. If King wants to do a story on truth,, trauma and the Trump era, why not write a book or an indy graphic novel?

I remember 30 years ago, back in 2017 when Metal first dropped. I was excited and so was the comic shop owner that sold me the comic. Flash forward to Death Metal #7 and I'm left wondering what was the point of it all? If it was meant to be a fun one-off story, then they should have stopped after Metal.

someone else on here said it well - it feels like Snyder slapped the word "hope" on a dialogue balloon for at least one character every other page, and crammed the book with....stuff. From that we're supposed to ignore the messy, stretched-out storyline over two similar events, and all we get at the end is a reinforcement of Morrison's "Multiversity" (which was great) by saying there are other mul more

Lots of fun and the Hal/Carol moments in the book are timeless and true; Morrison nails it again. For those just joining it it will be bit of work to orient yourself, otherwise Sharp's beautifully evolving style and Morrison's story are a perfect match once again.

exactly! About halfway through I finally realized that's what was happening - I'm getting slow. But a lovely issue. Art as usual is superb, and the way Morrison wrote the Anti-Matter Unverse - absolutely fantastic. It felt like its own thing, for one of the first times I can remember. You really felt for 666 and his love affair with XXXX as well...unexpected, human and fabulous! Loved that it was almost all from the Anti-perspective.

A very different Green Lantern book then we've ever had before but it works. Morrison applies his usual tricks and creates a compelling story in episodic format before tying it up for his mid-season finale. Liam Sharp's art is also amazing.

Superheroes for Hire - Oct 4, 2020

Your answer to Scott Snyder lies in the fact that he's going mostly independent after this. Clearly he is not writing this series based on any ownership in the ongoing narrative after this series ends. He isn't going to be the Justice League ongoing writer like after Metal. He isn't going to be a character book writer like for Batman. This was supposed to be basically the whacky conclusion to his splintered version of the DC Universe.

Superheroes for Hire - Oct 4, 2020

DC editorial convinced him to make this "count" so they could try another patch on their broken continuity. I still don't think any of this will really matter going forward. That's always just the buzz word these companies tell you to get your buy-in to huge costly events. "Read this. It changes everything." I only bought issue 1 out of morbid curiosity, and I wasn't enticed to read further.
