Wait, hold up. Let me see if I got that right. None of the characters actually did anything to resolve the conflict - a goddess did. Am I crazy or is that an actual "deus ex machina" being used in a comic book from 2008? That's ridiculous. The resolution to the Ra's Al Ghul resurrection is in the issue after the end of the crossover.
Wait, hold up again. Am I saying what I think I'm saying? That a seven part crossover doesn't actually contain the whole story, that it's in fact, a ten part crossover, and that ten part crossover includes not only terrible art from everybody involved, but an honest to god "deus ex machina" (pun definitely intended)? Wow. To paraphrase Chris Sims, a great crossover, or greatest crossover?
Nothing happens in this crossover that's worth remembering. Ra's comes back. Talia loses control of
This was terrible. And what makes it more terrible is the involvement of the great Grant Morrison and Peter Milligan. I understand that when you work with a trademark, you're under the control of editorial mandate, but I see no use for Ra's Al Ghul that couldn't be fulfilled by any number of characters.
Oh yeah, and one last thing. Why is Tony Daniel working on a comic with the God of All Comics? Doesn't he deserve an artist who can actually draw something other than posing?
