8.0 out of 10 - salloria
What would you do with your last night on Earth? That is the question posed here in this one-shot that ties into DC's Final Crisis company-wide crossover. Heroes and villains set out to right wrongs, wrong rights or spend time with their families… or "families" as it were, but one hero in particular - Geo-Force - is out looking for the ultimate revenge…

Best-selling novelist Brad Meltzer - no stranger to comics - gives us glimpses of key characters and how they choose to spend their seemingly last night alive, and while some scenarios are a given like Superman having a heart-to-heart with Pa Kent, other scenarios are sure to raise eyebrows, like Starfire, Captain Cold and The Challengers of the Unknown's Rocky, for example. But it's his depiction of Geo-Force, who's lost virtually everything and has now become desperate, that makes for good reading.

With a cast of characters like this, Adam Kubert is certainly up to the task, and it shows. Since darkness envelops the planet, the tone (poses, facial expressions, etc) matches that quality perfectly. Throw in some unique viewpoints and a stellar fight between the aforementioned Geo-Force and Deathstroke - complete with a truckload of emotion - and you've got another example of why the Kubert lineage is one of comic history's best.

As far as one-shots go, this one's worth the price of admission as readers can enjoy this without having read a single panel of Final Crisis, which is saying something.
