No one got this yet? Just picked this up today from my LCS. Pretty sweet issue.
I'm no good at summaries, so here's some little tidbits of info I rounded up:
end of spoilers
-The survivors prepare for a final assault on Khyber's forces. It's revealed that Sirocco has some sort of physical connection to Khyber, and that he hold's Khyber's human emotions.
-Parasite bites the big one at the hands of one of Khyber's troops. Lex busts out with a cavalry of monsters he created to turn the tides.
-Khyber shows up though, and pwns evryone until Superman makes his triumphant return from the Earth's core.
-A kickass battle ensues between the two, with Supes ready to deliver the final blow, but he then backs down at the last moment and Khyber kils him... for real this time.:(
-Right then, Sirocco comes in and stabs Khyber in the back with a spear, killing him. But his death creates a power vacuum that in years makes the global situation even worse.
-In time all the good guys die off or disappear altogether, and Jimmy Olsen is -for all he knows- the last man left on Earth.
-We then go back to the Daily Planet roof, where Arion has finished his little story, and tells Supes that he has to give up superheroing, or else evil will just keep coming back stronger and stronger. Dum Dum Duuuummm!
Well I pretty much summarized things already but, whatever.:rolleyes:
The art was great. Pacheco has really grown on me in this run. Overall, I give this issue a couple o' thumbs up. Any thoughts?
BTW I waited til tonight to post this so as not to be accused of stake claiming.
