Tom King has absolutely ruined the New Gods for any other writer. This issue was masterful storytelling; it was heartbreaking, nuanced, and beautiful.

I don't know how DC will ever be able to use Granny Goodness again after this story.

What an issue.

I just realized that the narration in these issues are taken directly from Jack Kirby's run. My interpretation is that the bombastic narration was Scott's way of dealing with the torture of Apokolips when he was a kid. Like he started thinking he was a hero in a story and that's how knew it was going to be all right.
