The Crotchety Old Man Has Spoken: Last Knight On Earth Impression
BATMAN: LAST KNIGHT ON EARTH is a good story. And it has good art. Unfortunately, DC published it while overloading us with multiversal stories: Batman: White Knight 1 & 2, Doomsday Clock, Dark Knights Metal, Naomi, Justice League, Batman: The Man Who Laughs, The Dark Knight Returns: The Golden Child, Young Justice, Flash Forward, Wonder Woman: Dead Earth, etc. And, let’s remember DC has used their multiverse repeatedly since Flashpoint, New 52, Forever Evil, Convergence, Rebirth, and coming soon – 5G.
I love DC’s multiverse – when it was special. But, now, DC keeps going to that well over and over again. I’m bored, DC. It’s not just DC that needs to give the multiverse a break, and the creatives do too. Geoff Johns and Scott Snyder are talented writers that couldn’t be more different, and yet both ended their minis this week in similar ways – introducing a new Superman into a world that lost theirs or never had one.
Maybe that was part of a plan, but I don’t think so.
