like Flashpoint, it's an utterly pointless what-if story that's only important for the ending continuity reboot event.
Therefore it wasnt pointless at all, it in fact had a very definite point to it.

Whether it was good or not is a seperate issue. Though I enjoyed it personally.

A three page spread over how many pages? Flashpoint was largely pointless.

Read Greg Cox's novelization of Final Crisis before your read the graphic novel. It will give you a better understanding of what is going on. It did for me and I love Grant Morrison's work...but Greg's breakdown of it is outstanding.
While I agree, the Superman Beyond issues were my favourite part of Final Crisis, so I was a little gutted they weren't included. Although, I do understand why they weren't, before anyone jumps down my throat.

Oh, you know what, I don't know how Cx has it laid out, but look for Road to No Man's Land first, that's the set up story.

I just checked and they do have a some of the Cataclysm issues, they just don't have them labeled as such. They don't have the whole thing, just 11 of the 17 issues on the DC COmics Database.

Not for the character of The Flash. It was an important story for him, but I've already been over that.

Re: Comic Book Events/Crossovers to read/avoid

Flashpoint was just a bad event book. Broc is correct that it wasn't pointless for Flash, Barry was put through a lot of stuff, he had to try and repair what had been wrecked, instead what happened instead is that basically a new universe was born. I really haven't like much of what Geoff Johns has done lately aside from Aquaman. He has to start focusing on Arthur, give Green Lantern to Tomasi or someone else. He gave Barry up after he did what he wanted to do with him. I dunno. I'm just very down on him lately due to Justice League. I hope Batman Earth One is good because I've been very much looking forward to it for the past two years.
