So did I...
...right up until Johns decided to make the implied Lovecraftian horror that Sorrow was acting as herald for...
...a giant sentient bug with an army of giant-sized normal bugs.
That fails to be a Lovecraftian horror.
I wasn't expecting miracles, but Johns could have gone with shoggoths, or something like the Dunwich Horror (I have no idea what the plural is for that), or an accelerated large-scale version of The Colour Out of Space, or the radiate-intelligences from At the Mountains of Madness. Hell, I'd have settled for an army of Deep Ones or ghouls.
Off the top of my head, I can only think of TWO Cthulu Mythos ideas that Johns couldn't have used, because they never went in for anything as unsubtle as attacking a whole city at once: The Great Race of Yith with their penchant for mind-swapping, and those winged fungus/crustacean things that like to scoop out brains and keep them alive and silently screaming forever in metal cylinders.
But despite all the choices available, Johns went with something out of a bad '50s monster movie instead.
It's the same sort of thing Johns did in the new JSA title with the Gog arc -- really good storytelling turning to total failure and cliched crap right at the climax of the story.
