Where do worlds go when they die? The Earthquakes felt round the Multiverse, Superman's lost days after "Doomed," the World's End - all these points will converge as the history of the DCU is spun from a new perspective, the perspective of a mad god and his arrogant child.
The biggest story in DC history ties into literally every DC story ever told - and it all begins here.
Kingdom Come, Red Son, Wild West Justice League, Captain Carrot and the Zoo Crew - all the worlds you remember can still be found on Telos.
Everything matters. Every story matters. This new mega-event, written by Jeff King, showrunner for the hit USA show White Collar and Scott Lobdell (RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS), will bring together heroes and villains from over seven decades of DC Comics lore in the most epic saga in company history.

Review by DanieXJ
So begins the realignment of the DC Universe. Again. (Not to say that Marvel doesn’t realign here and there too, retconning seems to be liked more and more and more these days by both major comic companies). Except, I guess this time it’s sort of the realignment of previous realignments (the allusions to those reboots weren’t subtle).All the heroes from fifty doomed cities that have been collected by Brainiac are being pitted against each other on a planet outside of time to decide who survives and who doesn’t. And then someone who seems worse comes into the picture. And if you also add a dose of Brainiac into that, most of the TPB was utter chaos.And that was one of the things that I didn’t totally like about the TPB, the story telling sometimes seemed all over the place. On the other hand, keeping the characters straight was much easier than I thought it would be. Overall it was a good TPB, and I look forward to what comes next in the DC Universe.I got this advanced galley through Netgalley on behalf of DC Entertainment
