Ok this book is crazy mental. Parallel Universes, Time Travel, soooooo much DC history thrown at you that you may feel completely out of your depth.
If you are a long time reader of DC I think you are gonna LOVE all the references to past DC lore. If however you are like me (I’m 38 and started reading graphic novels for the first time since I was a kid, earlier this year!!!) you may find yourself thinking WTF?!?! To yourself quite often during this rollercoaster of a ride.
You can either get annoyed by the bafflement or just go with the flow. Even if a lot of the references go over your head you will still be able to follow the main plot line, just lol.
My particular highlight of the book were the 2 Superman Beyond Comics about mid way through the book. A real psychedelic trip to the far reaches if reality including its own yellow submarine!!! (How can you not think of the Beetles Movie during this point?!)
Anyway you will either love this book and give it a 5 star rating or hate it immensely. You won’t know till you give it a try. For me it was a pre-flashpoint highlight of an Event.
