    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.

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 very concept here is pure Morrison: bold (almost recklessly so), occasionally incoherent, and an overall great ride. As with other DC Omnibus treatments, the actual product is just lovely, with its strong binding, oversized pages, and vibrant color. So why only four stars? I for one found the skimpy back up material more than a little disappointing. Beyond a few sketches, there's just nothing here. Yes, it's already a big book, but I wanted some commentary from Morrison on the genesis of the idea, thoughts from the other writers on how they approached the project, etc. Yes, some folks find this stuff extraneous, but I always find it thrilling to get a peak behind the curtain. Here, the curtain doesn't budge. In my dreams, I was actually hoping for a serious discussion of the potential future use of this particular future timeline (which I think has only appeared briefly in Morrison's Superman).

    Wow, what an insane event this was! The very idea of it is so silly it feels like Grant Morrison pitched it as a joke and DC was just like [RUBBER STAMP]. The premise is this: we're reading the one millionth issues of basically every DC series that was running in 1999. Which, the funny part to me, is that this means the stories are set one million months into the future. What a weird amount of time! Like, try to wrap your head around the idea of "one million months." OK, maybe it's easier to ima Wow, what an insane event this was!

Like, try to wrap your head around the idea of "one million months." OK, maybe it's easier to imagine a million months during the coronavirus quarantine, but in general, it is a very strange amount of time. It effectively means this largely takes place 83,000 years in the future. But, beyond the initial weirdness of the premise, this thing is actually thoroughly realized and well-executed! Morrison's world-building and sci-fi prowess definitely helped as he and Val Semeiks developed what the 853rd Century would look and feel like, as populated by a solar system brimming with superheroes. There are just so many big, wild sci-fi ideas being batted around in this thing that it's impossible not to have fun. Even if you don't love a couple of issues, you'll find something to love about many others. It's a blast. The structure of this event is what makes it so different, I'd say. Rather than telling a linear story, plot developments are spread out across the 30+ single-issue stories that are contained here. There is a central story, made up of DC One Million #1-4 and Morrison's own JLA #1,000,000. But to really appreciate the vastness of the story and get a full scope of what's at stake, it's best to read almost everything. As the plot unfolds across all these individual, one-off issues, you're basically putting a puzzle together, where each piece of the puzzle is also a very interesting story unto itself. But, as much as I enjoyed this, I'm sure there will be readers who don't want to tackle an entire 1000-page omnibus. As such, I'll try to be helpful and list all the issues that don't affect the story at all, and merely function as their own little romps within the One Million universe. However, some of them are pretty good! Anyway, the flat-out "skippable" issues are: Azrael (somehow great) Chase (fantastic art) The Creeper Green Arrow Hitman (great) Legion of Super Heroes / Legionnaires (2-part story but kind of mediocre) Lobo Supergirl (one of my favorites) Young Justice DC One Million 80-Page Giant (decent but kind of a mess) Booster Gold Superman/Batman #79-80 (pretty fun) In any case, I was very impressed by how well-executed this event was. I can't think of another DC event of this size and scope I've enjoyed as much, to be honest. Definitely worth checking out!

    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.

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 myself thinking "this can't be the end? Solaris must pull a classic comic story 'you think he's dead, but he's not really dead' situation". But alas I was wrong. I found myself enjoying the journey far more than the destination. I mean the eventual demise of Solaris was captured in literally 2 small panels... How's that for blue balls!! Like I said earlier though, it's still a fun read. The stories leading up to the end were for the most part well done. Some are better quality than others. And some are just downright weird (I'm looking at you Creeper). As well as the difference in writing quality, the same can be said for the art. Although I only found myself hating only a few (cough cough Aquaman cough cough). For such a mammoth book you really need to invest yourself in taking it all in. There are some stellar ideas here and for the most part they are pulled off well. Just wish that climax felt satisfying after reading 900+ pages of build up!

    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.

    Typically massive ideas from Grant Morrison. Solaris in particular is a fantastic concept. The event overall suffers from the usual bloat of a linewide crossover; a lot of the issues are superfluous in retrospect. Overall, a fun way to further explore the concept of legacy that's so integral to DC

    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.

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 interesting, but nothing to really write home about. The setup for the premise as to why the JLA is catapulted to the 853rd century is a bit weak as is the length of the main conflict. It felt like they were trying to do a massive (and hopefully memorable) crisis as DC is wont to do. However, I don’t think this one’s going to be hanging around in my brain and be as memorable as some of the other major DC crossovers and crises. Again, can’t fault the main arc too much as the art is nice and you get exactly what you’re being offered. The annoying bits that took this down a couple of pegs for me were the tie-ins and one-shots that were in the original run of DC One Million. Some of these felt downright pointless and distracting. Some of the more annoying ones for me where with the 1M version of the Legion of Superheroes, any of the 1M stories with Robin the Toy Wonder and their version of Superboy/OMAC, and that last Aquaman story where the art was so abstract and confusing, that I felt nauseous. Some of the later tie-ins, such as the more recent Booster Gold (that was only written a few years back) were actually quite welcome and served up some hubris for a generally arrogant character. I get that this is a look into the far future and commentary on the hyperspeed that we currently get an overload of information, but some of the HeadNet tabloid stuff took me out of the story at times. It really felt like I was being accosted with information, but maybe that was Morrison’s aim all along. Am I upset I read this? Nope. Happy I did, but unsure that I’ll be breaking down doors to re-read it anytime soon.

    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 A fun read!

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 sandbox for 22 pages without trying to do much that's creative with the world. However, I loved the Green Arrow and Supergirl stories (I knew nothing about either character prior) because, while they had no real bearing on the central story, they took the trappings of the world and told stories that were self-contained, creative, and had emotional impact. Overall, a good one to get from the library because I probably wouldn't need to re-read this, but well worth the read and worth the experiment.

    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 I actually read the individual issues, but the whole thing was creative genius on Morrison's part.

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

    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!
