Facing an ever-growing army of mindless slaves and corrupted heroes, Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and the remnants of the Justice League of America find themselves consumed by the spreading darkness.

First, it was George Orwell’s ‘1984’. Now, the next fortune cookie of a book, Energy – The Final Crisis. Written with a unique perspective of a historical commentary about events not yet past, the reader is introduced to more than just high heating costs. Between the covers of this book, you will follow the struggle of several characters as they try to survive or offer a solution to the world, only to be swallowed by a whirlwind of treachery and violence. You will experience the desperation of world powers – scrambling for global dominance, while ever-shrinking fuel supplies threaten their military machines. You will feel provoked at the critical comments of modern politics. You man giggle as the author snubs political correctness, but you will fell a chill when you connect current world tensions – terrorism and the Middle East, to the present. This book was written before September 11, 2001.
Take a behind-the-scenes look at the process of creating FINAL CRISIS! Featuring sketches and character designs by J.G. Jones and script notes and designs by Grant Morrison, this special issue will give readers a sneak preview of what to expect in FINAL CRISIS.
There has been an explosion of interest in the ‘Glorious’ Revolution in recent years. Long regarded as the lesser of Britain’s seventeenth-century revolutions, a faint after tremor following the major earthquake of mid-century, it is now coming to be seen as a major transformative episode in its own right, a landmark event which marked a distinctive break in British history. This collection sheds new light on the final crisis of the Stuart monarchy by re-examining the causes and implications of the dynastic shift of 1688-9 from a broad chronological, intellectual and geographical perspective. Comprising eleven essays by specialists in the field, it ranges from the 1660s to the mid-eighteenth century, deals with the history of ideas as well as political and religious history, and not only covers England, Scotland and Ireland but also explores the Atlantic and European contexts. Encompassing high politics and low politics, Tory and Whig political thought, and the experiences of both Catholics and Protestants, it ranges from protest and resistance to Jacobitism and counter-revolution and even offers an evaluation of British attitudes towards slavery. Written in a lively and engaging style and designed to be accessible to a broader audience, it combines new research with the latest scholarship to provide a fresh and invigorating introduction to the revolutionary period that transformed Britain and its empire.
