DEATH OF THE NEW GODS #7 (OF 8)
What did the
If you’re at all into the DC Universe and are looking forward to Final Crisis then this is the most important mini-series that you are not reading.
Jim Starlin has been channeling his own inner Kirby fanboy with this series as he ushers The Fourth World off onto whatever mortal coil new gods shuffle off to. Someone or something has been murdering the New Gods one by one and this is all barreling towards the events in Final Crisis, one would assume, if the leaks about the plot are correct.
I don’t want to spoil anything because I think that this mini is worth reading and because it is a whodunit revealing any details would be a disservice. It is an 8 parter that probably could have been 6, but the last few issues have been fantastic and I dont’ care about the filler in the beginning anymore.
Starlin is clearly having a blast telling on old-school style cosmic showdown in which the dialogue is appropriately bombastic and the art is big and epic.
I first picked up this series because of my love of the New Gods and it ended up being one of the best comic book buying decisions I’ve made in the last year. I literally cannot wait to see how it ends.
