Hate to reply with only a one liner message so I'll make it all two lines.
Read Watchmen, it's a graphic novel (or comic as I still call them).  That
kind of thing is all the rage in comicland these days, Dark Knight et al.

I prefer 'anti-climax' endings too, I suppose it's rather 'unamerican'. :P
Although, this sort of thing has become a bit cliche as well.
