The futility of this book is beyond belief. I came into this with the bare bones of the story, having already seen the movie and I have to say – the movie is infinitely better.
The first four or five stories all focus on how the war in the Flashpoint world came about, then there’s a totally random one about Lois Lane and the resistance and even more random one about a white skull villain called the Outsider.
While the Resistance and Outsider stories are bad because it looks like a fifth grader wrote them, the main plot is far worse because it looks like an angsty teenager wrote them. Like, who though this infuriating back-and-forth style of narration was a good idea?
The plot is so bad – it has every soap opera element ever and all you really want is for the characters to kill each other. How am I supposed to believe that this giant war came out of a series of misunderstandings? Also, way too many WW1 vibes for my taste.
The art is terrible as well. I was going to give this one two stars until I remembered how lazy the graphics were.
Altogether, such a waste of time and space. Wish I could warp back to a point this didn’t exist.
