The Last of The Greats, by Joshua Hale Fialkov (Writer) & Brent Peeples (Illustrator)

 THE LAST OF THE GREATS is the latest in a long line of "What if Superman went bad....?" stories, and it is certainly one of the worst I've had the misfortune to read. The Writing is bland and predictable, the art is childish, and the plot, such as it is, is inane and ugly and pointless. To make matters worse, there's the threat of a Volume 2 on the horizon.........Avoid at all costs. If you really need to find out what it would be like if Superman went bad, read IRREDEEMABLE, A GOD SOMEWHERE, or Alan Moore's MIRACLEMAN. Don't waste your money on this junk.
