Okay, so I got it yesterday because the postal system is junk. Anyways, I really liked the beginning with the Japanese Superhero-Pop Culture stuff, but ummm...when did Shilo Norman come back to life? All I remember is his arms bursting out of the grave all colourful at the end of Seven Soldiers of Victory #1.

Or are we not supposed to know that?

unless another writers handling his concepts morrison always resolves his leftovers. i think time will reveal.

then again shilo norman appeared in firestorm while the apokolips gods still looked like their old selves....when mr miracle was meant to be active.

i think dc's editorial should've kept a tighter leash on this stuff till it all played out =/

True, although I didn't know about Firestorm. I knew that Shilo wouldn't stay dead from Seven Soldiers, so I guess this has something to do with the 7S versions of Darkseid and crew (who appear in FC and baffle the hell out of me). I'm just not sure, I can't remember how he died. From what I understood, the series was either non-linear, or it was a dream/hallucination.

Makes me wonder what the Sheeda have to do with all of this. I'm not going to jump up and analyze anything just yet though. I'd like to see how the mini plays out.

I feel like it's a bit rushed though. I'd prefer it to be a bit longer than 7 issues (plus I'm not reading any tie-ins).

Which leads me to my next question: Do I need to read Final Crisis: Requiem to understand the rest of FC?

no, unless you're a big martian manhunter fan wand want to see the extended scene of his death and discovery of his corpse it doesnt contribute at all to the story.

I think it has to do with the 'life trap' he was able to escape in Mister Miracle #4. He was pretty confident when facing Dark Side due to the fact that he knew death wouldn't stick.

It was the one series I didn't really understand. Too disjointed. That and Frankenstein ran me for a loop.

Not really.

It just expands on the death of the Martian Manhunter and it's sort of a memorial thing.

I read it last night and I really liked it a lot, but I don't think it's necessary to follow the story.

The Mister Miracle mini was completely nonlinear at times. Frankenstein and Bulleteer were just good ol' fashioned fun. Everything else had its highs and lows.

I liked them all equally. Best "crossover"/event I've read in my five years of reading comics.

Requim is not required reading, but I'm really glad I bought it. A very well told story and one that deserved to be told. Now we know exactly how Martian Manhunter died, and a couple of scene's were very sad. Tomasi is fast becoming one of my favorite DC writers.

I friggin' loved both issues! It's very Grant Morrison and once I get into the way his characters are speaking I enjoy him stuff a hell of a lot.

Yes as I'm not reading this series and perfectly understood Keb. Have you read Morrison's Seven Soldiers of Victory?
