I only read detailed reviews...never the comics themselves...and my answer to your question is "NO!!!!!!!"

Hell no.

It centers on already horrible characters like Jason Todd and Jimmy Olsen and when it finally shows good characters (Trickster and Piper), it makes them so horribly out of character that it's insulting.

I'd rather read Chuck Austen's run on Uncanny than this pile of dung.  Stay away at all costs.

52 on the other hand was awesome.

I'm just about ready to drop Final Crisis. I have picked up every issue and it doesn't seem to worth it so far. I would just wait for the trade.
