Shallow Reader Post – Darkseid War

26067591

Hola! I have realized why some people might decide never to start reading comics. They come with a great deal of history, convoluted relationships and endless reboots that aren’t really reboots. Not knowing even one of these details can sometimes kill a book. And because there were things I didn’t know at the time of reading this Justice League volume, it kinda sucked:

But the reality was more like…

Some barely comprehensible backstory (I had to reread it to get the whole exchanging sons thing)
Some randomly distributed murders by Darkseid’s generalissimo(or is it Antimonitor’s, I forget)
Followed by this completely badass Darkseid’s daughter character(Grail?)whose motivations I don’t fully understand
Some more backstory about Grail and a gibberish prophecy, also something about Luthor’s heartless sister, all random
The Flash and Bats in CSI mode(I realize much later that this volume is part of DC Rebirth; until then confused by Flash’s presence)

Read the rest of my babbling here. In the mean time, how much are you dreading school on a scale of one to 10? A 100?
