I, like many people who are DC fans, have wondered (well I know I have) how does Darkseid come to be in this new continuity? Personally I never really knew his origin to begin with, making this issue a treat. Not only do we get Darkseid’s origin but the death of the old gods and the birth of the new gods. On top of that we get to see what Darkseid was up to before he invaded Earth (JL issues 1-6) and we are shown that he has invaded other Earths as well. In fact he even invaded Earth 2 (man, I love when they tie things together all nice-like). It really was a tremendous issue. Pak was on his game for this one and the artists, whom I have never heard of, did an excellent job visually bringing us this tale. If you’re a fan of Darkseid and continuity this one is a must have.
