Grant Morrison superhero stories can be weird, thought-provoking, metatextual deconstructions of the genre. Or they can be weird, fast-moving, high-concept adventures. I can appreciate and enjoy the former, but it's the latter that thrills me most.

DC Comics One Million is one of the best examples of Morrison in his high-concept adventure mode. It's the story of the Justice League of America (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flash and Aquaman) swapping places with their far-future c

DC One Million collects f a great DC crossover event. A few reviewers have complained about the mixed quality of the writing in these issues, but I for one find this absurd -- even the best publisher wide crossover is bound to arrive with a huge range of quality (see for example "Blackest Night"). Yes, some writers fall flat when faced with the challenge of this set up and others play it for laughs, but those truly gifted writers and artists are unleashed here to produce extraordinary work. The ...more

Holy mother of sweet baby Buddha!! That was one heck of a read! And by that I'm referring to the sheer size of it. All 1000+ pages.

I've been wanting to read this for a while, but wanted to make sure I read it all together so I didn't get lost. I must say I'm of mice emotions.

Overall I enjoyed the event. With all the tie in stories it helps build the universe and the building threat.

On the downside to this was the fact that when we finally got to the climax it didn't feel complete. I found mysel

An amazing story that crosses tens of thousands of years collected in a great package. Morrison knocked it out of the park with this line wide event.

It's a neat story. You really need to read all the side stories to fully appreciate it, though.

What a read!

For the moment, I’m merely referring to the length of this tome. At 1080 pages, this comic often
crushed my chest and impaired my breathing while reading in bed.

As for my overall thought on this, I think it can be best described as a “cornucopia of ‘hmmm’”.

This is yet again another odd, weird, and at times boring mixed bag of stories. You can see Morrison stretching his wings into the realm of weird with the main story arc in the omnibus. The main arc is alright and rather interestin

A fun read! Like any anthology, especially crossover anthologies, some parts are better than others. The core story is good and it's neat to see the central narrative advanced from the perspectives of different characters/authors. It's very Grant Morrison, lots of time folding on itself and meta-commentary about superheros as archetypes. Many of the ancillary one-shot stories are fun "elseworlds"-feeling takes, but are ultimately forgettable. Many of them feel like playing in someone else's sand ...more

I actually read the individual issues, but the whole thing was creative genius on Morrison's part. Heroes from way way in the future come back to get help from our era, like they will always do. You get to see how the decedents of our heroes look and they look cool, all futuristic. Of course they will have a fight between each other, it is a comic after all, but then you get to see all the future ones interact with their ancestors, it is pretty cool, another I will have to track down and read ag ...more

Really 4.5 stars, but ranking it 5 is fine with me.

I think Grant Morrison has a tendency to be a little long-winded in some of his stories. That is not the case here, as this is a nicely packaged omnibus. The tie-in issues are spaced between the main issues of the 1M mini-series in a great way that really adds to the story and also makes the book really easy to read. Each member of the future Justice League A gets and opportunity to shine, and their interactions with the current JLA are nicely

Such fun! Not the wildest idea from Morrison yet you can see his sensibilities. The whole book is an over to top summer blockbuster and it is high on sci-fi! Some tie ins are boring, some are really really interesting and in total they are the snapshot of late 90's Dc Comics with familiar talents and forgotten ones. You may lost with sup-plots but let yourself in and do not try to connect everything. It is a story about time and time will control you!

Finally finished!!!!! Such a great book! The thought of so many centuries passing is.... Awe inspiring but also makes me sad to think that in the 854rd century (where a lot of this story takes place) Jeremiah is LONG gone!

Some of it was over my head. That is not a feeling I like when reading comics! Overall, though, pretty darn fun.

An older DC crossover event. It's an OK read overall. This series introduces the JLA characters from the far future. Recommended

Scottish comic book author Grant Morrison is known for culture-jamming and the constant reinvention of his work. He is known for his nonlinear narratives and countercultural leanings in his runs on titles including DC Comics' Animal Man, Batman, JLA, The Invisibles, Action Comics, All-Star Superman, and Doom Patrol, and Marvel Comics' New X-Men and Fantastic Four. Many of these are controversial, ...more
