Dr. Manhattan has been lurking far away from the action – until the finale of this issue. I won’t go too deep into the issue – because it must be read in it’s entirety to be fully appreciated.
John’s has been having up and downs with this series (and its delays). Mixed reviews in issue past were unanimous with the story lacking in certain issues and pacing problems in others. This issue is a polar opposite and keeps you clinging on each and every dialog bubble. The action is quick and direct, with jumping points keeping excitement brewing throughout.
Gary Frank has been solid throughout this entire run. Character’s are sharp and filled with emotion, backgrounds are vivid and encapsulating, and action scenes are thrillingly encapsulating.
Doomsday Clock started off solid and had a few hiccups throughout the middle – as we near the end, we see the genius of this series and the work of the team. As thing’s start to wrap up, we are put on the edge of our seats to see a once in a lifetime encounter unfold.
