The Rundown: The revived heroes make a final stand against Insomnia.
While the world continues to wake up from nightmares, many of their nightmares are turning them against the heroes. At the same time, the heroes make their final stand against Insomnia who is bringing nightmares to life at the Hall of Justice.
Deadman and Dodds fight to stop Insomnia and Batman devises a plan using the gem altered by Doctor Destiny. Deadman takes the fight to a new battlefield and someone will have to make the ultimate sacrifice to end the threat of Insomnia and his walking nightmares.
The Story: Williamson has done some great work with the series but this finale was disappointing in many ways. As a fan of the DC universe, introducing concepts like dreams and nightmares into any long form story invites connections to the Sandman universe and to have none of those elements in this series where there is clearly a canonical connection is disappointing. With the continuation of that world in comics recently, to not have those stories connect is a missed opportunity that sours the ending of this series for me.
The Art: The artists deliver some well detailed and visually entertaining action, but some of the more action heavy moments looked messy.
