Publisher: DC Comics

Writer: Geoff Johns

Artist: Gary Frank

Colorist: Brad Anderson

Letterer: Rob Leigh

Cover: Gary Frank

Review: ★★★★☆


The Doomsday Clock warns us of the potential of a world  ending event. The story of this series becomes more of global occurrence. It takes the course that the populace is blaming meta humans for the build up in crime across the planet. The book gives us moments with Batman and Ozymandias, Rorscach and Saturn Girl and The Joker finally shows up. This issue comes across more political. The Russian version of Firestorm and Black Adam encounter issues of their side of the globe. Geoff Johns is taking us on a strange ride by mixing the elements of Alan Moore’s Watchman and the DC Universe. The story is slowly becoming a dark blend that could continue the DC Universe. We want to see how this story turns out and with the ending of this book along with the addition of the Joker, there is no way we can look away.
