"Final Crisis" No. 2

Took home a BIG stack of comics yesterday from Bargain Comics. At the top of the pile: "Final Crisis" No. 2.

I liked the second issue of DC's big event better than the first, and I'm starting to get a sense of what's going on. Still kind of hard to follow though, and the pacing is off for me. Like the first issue, this issue began with an extended sequence - this one in Japan. So sort of a leisurely start, but then bam! the story lurches ahead in bits and pieces.

Still pretty pictures, though. And it's not like I'm not intrigued. Wish I'd read Grant Morrison's "Mister Miracle" books; maybe then, I'd be a bit more plugged in.
