Our “DC Let Downs” series concludes with one of the most lauded comics of all time, “Final Crisis” by Grant Morrison. This 7-issue comic is the end play of the incredibly long build-up that spanned multiple DCU-wide events. We talk about all the narrative problems, the character problems, and the WTF problems because, really, none of the good ideas from this comic had any room to shine through a cloud of anti-life haze.

Our Deadpool series comes to a close with “Wade Wilson’s War” by Duane Swierczynski and Jason Pearson. In this framed narrative, Deadpool tells the tale of an elite force of assassins contracted by the US government. Or does he? Maybe he’s just crazy? Well, we know he’s crazy, but is he CRAZY? Like, Lamborghini crazy or drooling crazy? We really couldn’t come to a consensus. But hey, what else can you expect out of the Matrix—er, out of Deadpool.

This week we start off our little tribute the blockbuster Avengers movie by reading “Marvel Knights: Black Widow” by Devin Grayson and Greg Rucka. What starts out as a Russian superintelligence agency’s attempt to replace Natasha Romanoff turns into a mind rape re-enactment of Nicholas Cage’s FACE/OFF. Yeah, it gets weird.
