Writer Mark Waid, coming from his popular work on Flash and Impulse, and artist Alex Ross, who broke new ground with the beautifully painted Marvels, join together for this explosive book that takes place in a dark alternate future of the DC Superhero Universe. Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and almost every other character from DC Comics must choose sides in what could be the final battle of them all.

When I took to reading comics I had to get this storyline and find out what it is about. I enjoyed it very much. The art is exquisite and the story compelling and iconic. Give it a read
Mark Waid has an incredibly solid grip of the personalities of each character, adding changes to classic characters like Superman here and there so that they are the same characters that we know and love, but are still different and "new". The book also has a lot of emotion in it, from happiness, sadness, wonder, and many more. The characters all feel real, which is greatly helped by the art of Alex Ross.
The art in this book is fantastic to say the least. Ross makes each character feel like they're really there. Every panel has so much detail. The book looks great. End of story.
This graphic novel is one of the best out there now, effectively using both art and text to tell a great story. Overall, I give this a 5 out of 5.
Note: Read the introduction after you've read the entire book. It flat out tells you what the story is really about, so if you don't want to find out beforehand, read it afterwards. Thankfully, I avoided it on my own.
