It's a good week for comics. So good that I might have to make a second run. Let's start with...

FINAL CRISIS #5: It's still a bit confusing (to say the least), but action is a universal language and this issue's got more action than the past ones. We still don't know what became of the ragtag Watchtower crew from last issue, but those answers will come, I'm sure. We do get New Kalibak and his army against an Earth army that includes BLACK ADAM~! We also get a Magic Rubiks Cube and the reveal of the Earth-51 Monitor, but not before Darkseid single-handedly takes control of Earth and every civilian on it. All hail! It might take two or three reads, but it's still pretty entertaining. Thumbs in the middle, leaning up.

FINAL CRISIS: REVELATIONS #4: The Spectre is at the mercy of Cain. Only The Question, The Huntress, and The Radiant can save him and fuse him back with the dead-again Crispus Allen. The plot gets curiouser regarding Renee Montoya and the Spear of Destiny and the cliffhanger has all of existence in the balance. This issue only makes me want a Question ongoing all that much more. Thumbs up!

SECRET INVASTION: DARK REIGN: Everything in Secret Invasion has led to this. Norman Osborn calls his meeting of Marvel's baddest. His proposition is basically this: They get whatever they want and, in exchange, they run a few tasks for Osborn whenever he deems it necessary. He also grants them all immunity (and erases the charges against Doom), just so long as they don't do anything stupid...in public. The Hood's army and the remaining mutant population must all register as part of the Initiative. After some interesting verbal exchanges, the meeting adjourns, leaving only Doom and Namor. Showing once again why he's the smartest man in the Marvel Universe, Doom decides to sit back and let Osborn implode (like he always does) and pick up the pieces later, giving Namor the seas and the land to himself. And to prove Doom's point, Osborn is confronted by The Swordsman back at Thunderbolts Mountain. When Swordsman threatens to go public with Osborn's recent actions, Norman loses his marbles and kills Swordsman dead with his own sword (DEATH...BY...IRONY) and chucks him out the window. The issue itself wasn't blow-away amazing, but it does wonders in setting up future stories. I'm gonna like the new Dark Reign. Thumbs up!

More to come later, including Detective Comics.

I have to re-read it like the other Final Crisis books, but again this thing makes little or no sense. I really hate Grant Morrison and I'm glad to hear DC is trying to reign him in after his debacle and Batman: RIP.

It is good to hear that Doom and Namor aren't taking Norman seriously in Dark Reign. I still can't believe Marvel was stupid enough to bring him back and continue to use him.
