Karl Kessel in an underrated writer who consistently turns in solid, well paced stories. Here Earth's Sun is in danger of turning itself into a nova.

Leído y poseído en la edición de dos tomos que sacó Editorial Vid hace década y pico (que no creo que suba de momento), pero marco la edición española por ser la que más se le parece. Sólo recuerdo un par de escenas y el final, que me gustó bastante, pero muy poco más, más allá de que el dibujo era bastante normalucho. A ver para cuándo lo releo.
Final Night is a good, fun comic that attempts to correct the problems that were created by Zero Hour. It's a very enjoyable book, with an interesting story that actually challanges the "gods" of the DC Universe. Some people might be put off by the thought-balloons and odd naration, but in a way, that's what gives this book it's charm.
