So's I'm reading all of 52 for the first time
Decided to give it a look after Morrison said that Final Crisis was mostly a continuation of plot threads started in it and Seven Soldiers. Figured with him, Johns, Rucka and Waid on writing duties, it probably wouldn't hurt to read. I'm about 30 issues into it.
It's...really wildly uneven, though. I mean some things, like the stuff with the Question and Montoya, are kind of interesting. Others like the thing with Steel's niece and...basically everything that involves some cosmic something or other, are just kind of boring. It really seems to me like getting all these wonderful writers together to produce a book and trying to homogenize their styles and the stories they were trying to tell was a mistake. Sometimes it feels like everyone is pulling in different directions at the same time while also running into each other whilst trying to run together. I don't know if I'm as crazy about it as a lot of people seemed to be back in '06.
Next up: Countdown. I'm kidding, I'm not reading Countdown.
