    Default Should I read Seven Soldiers of Victory before Final Crisis?

    Is it required or recommended reading before heading into Final Crisis? The Omnibus is huge, is it all recommended in your opinion?

    Here's whats in the Omnibus-

    Yes! Aside from it being a great story that explores seldomly seen corners of the DC Universe, the Mister Miracle chapters tie right into the Shilo Norman /Club Dark Side / Darkseid stuff in Final Crisis. One of my favorite Morrison works.

    Seven Soldiers is a great piece of work that's highly underrated.

    I read Klarion, Mister miracle, and Zatanna. It has been many years. Nothing to do with Final Crisis if I recall properly. Klarion was an origin story, a bit eh. The Mister Miracle was weird. All of the New Gods were mob people because of some weird curse and hung out in the Bronx or something. I don't recall the Zatanna storyline.
