I think your being overly harsh. Maybe your expectations were too high and it couldn't meet them?
I found it to be interesting and I like the time travel aspect of it. I liked it for what it is.
Maybe not the best, but the worst?
I am glad you enjoyed it, but yes, this is the worst book I have read in a very long time. And after reading his Superman, I was not expecting much, so no, it is not that I had overly high expectations. Now it is not Horwitz level bad, but it is still the worst book I think I have read all year if not over a year. It was jumbled as hell and too packed with info and things hinted at rather than being fact which only added to the confusion of what story he was trying to tell.
Tell me, please, what part of this story did you enjoy? And don't say "the time travel part".
What part did you enjoy? what piece of dialog? Or what piece of art? Or what piece of anything ....?
And speaking of art ... Look ... Perez was a king and I am sorry he fell into problems with his eyes, that really, truly sucks, but when you put forth inked images like this (the eyes ... dear lord the eyes !!) -
Or this gem (actually discussed on one of the many podcasts I listen to), please tell me how this is Perez art?
than yes, I am very much content with saying the art here is far from being his best and is, in fact, the worst he has ever done.
I am not happy that I feel that way, but the proof is in this book. His worst book artistic wise and writing wise and also the worst book I have read in a long time.
