This book is garbage. The story reads like a Battlestar Galactica or Secret Invasion where there have been sleeper agents, known as Manhunters posing as heroes' friends until it's time to strike! But they never say what they want to do. Do they want to kill the heroes? Do they want to destroy the world? Are they looking for the 11 secret herbs and spices? Their is no suspense or ANY stakes.

On top of that, a Guardian and a Zamaron come to Earth to imbue 10 people with VERY special powers to help

When I started to read comics at around 7 years old, my Mom had bought me a grab bag of comics from our local comic book store. Inside were the first 3 issues of the Millennium series. I must have read them 100 times not fully understanding what was going on or what Millennium even was. This past Friday I was looking for some other trades and came across this. I figured it was time to relive the series and finish out the story line.

Initially the story started off pretty strong but really falls

Still not really sure what the actual plot was, not really. But, again, I'm trying to read all the Wally West Flashes. His dad is in these, apparently he's a Manhunter; also I hate his parents with a passion.

Millennium is a fine example of DC's crossovers of the late '80s at their best. Following in the footsteps of Crisis and Legends, Millennium tells an epic story that manages to involve the whole DC universe, and which still holds up well to more modern crossovers. The writing is sharp, and Engelhart always does a great job of bringing the spotlight to the individual characters and their interactions. (It's also a joy seeing all of these characters from the late '80s, as Engelhart really gives a ...more

So. This. Pros and cons here. The second major post-Crisis DC "event title," Millennium deals mostly with the return of the Guardians of the Universe and the Manhunters, and some silly business intended to introduce a new team of heroes who then rapidly disappear into obscurity. It's got some neat ideas, but the writing is all over the place and it's hard to get through. The many tie-in issues, however, are often great! They really help make it all seem worthwhile. It does benefit from the ...more

There was a time when Steve Englehart was one of the best writers in comics. He could do big stories, and small, as highlighted by his run on Batman and Captain America. Here he picks up the gauntlet of doing, what was then DC's annual, company wide event. The premise is that Earth is special and representatives from two immortal races are here to help herald in a new age on enlightenment and evolution. Whatever germ of a story there may have been here was lost in the exposition dumps when ...more

Sorry, but I did not care a great deal about this storyline. After COIE this is really a let down... No character building, no big twists,... I feel like it was all a bit rushed. But of course these are just my two cents :)

Recuerdo que algo de esto leí de Ediciones Zinco... Me parece que el final. Pero estoy casi seguro de que no lo leí completo, ni siquiera sé si habré llegado a la mitad. Cuando tenga a mano el contenido y lo que sea que leí yo, quizás rerreseñe.

It's always cool to see the whole gang team up, unfortunately that doesn't always result in a good story. This was overly long, hard to follow and ultimately forgetable. Also, what's up with Aqualad's afro?

Avoid. Poor story to start with, plot leaps between frames that make no sense, painful dialogue - a character who's supposed to be from the UK speaks like she just got off the plane from Jamaica.

Some of the art's pretty good, though.

I also read the nearly 40 comic issues (ie Action Comics, Justice League International, etc...) that tied in.

Steve Englehart ha scritto ottime cose, fumetti decenti, e anche qualche fettecchia. Millennium, cross-over DC degli anni 80, è decisamente tra questi.

Steve Englehart went to Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut. After a stint in the Army, he moved to New York and began to write for Marvel Comics. That led to long runs on Captain America, The Hulk, The Avengers, Dr. Strange, and a dozen other titles. Midway through that period he moved to California (where he remains), and met and married his wife Terry.

He was finally hired away from M
