longbowhunter's Halcyon #5 - Conclusion review

Am I the only person reading this?


I'll try and keep this short I've got some mini corn dogs in the oven. I dont do many reviews. There are people on this site much smarter and better at it than I. But ever so often I read something really great that may not get the attention it deserves. Halcyon is one such book. This is by far the best thing I've read by workhorse Marc Guggenheim. Teamed with wife Tara Butters and rising star artist Ryan Bodenheim, Halcyon tells the story of a world where superheros are made obselete. A Lex Luthor/ Dr. Doom like villian Oculus builds a machine that manipulates the behavior of everyone on earth to eliminate violence and crime. Needless to say not everyone is on board with this idea. I really cant give much more than that away without spoiling the story. Ok so this is less of a review and more of a "Hey go buy this" bulletin but, ya' know.... GO BUY THIS!! For anyone who loved Watchmen or Squadron Supreme this is for you. Anyone who has read some of this series before and is wanting to know if they should get off their ass and buy the last issue, I give you this. There is a turning point for Sabre, lots of bloodshed, and an ending that could possibly lead to a second volume. If we're lucky and sales for this book improve.

To be honest, I was disappointed by the ending.
