Cocked-Up Crisis Mystery Shocker Resolved?

"Why Has DC's Final Crisis Been So Cocked Up?," Tom Spurgeon asks, wondering "why DC Comics let their Final Crisis comic book event be executed as if it lurched out the door, clutched its chest, set itself on fire and then rolled around in broken glass." (Props for good imagery.)

Well, I don't really believe it's that great of a mystery. I talked about what I think is at the core of the issue back in July, and while there are a few other things playing into the supposed blockbuster event's woes, I think my essay still holds up nicely - as does this one from June 2007, for that matter.
