    FINAL CRISIS SET TO BEGIN WITH ISSUE #1 AND SKETCHBOOK

    This May, don’t miss the historic start of the final chapter in the CRISIS trilogy in FINAL CRISIS #1. It’s a tale that could only spring from the mind of writer Grant Morrison, with stunning art by J.G. Jones (52 covers). Worlds will live and heroes will die in this epic 7-issue miniseries that spans the beginning and end of the DC Universe!

    In the 40-page issue #1, the entire multiverse is threatened as the mysterious Libra assembles an army of the DCU’s most terrifying super villains. But what is the ultimate plan, and who will live to find out?

    This issue will feature two covers by J.G. Jones that will ship in approximately 50/50 ratio.

    FINAL CRISIS #1 is solicited in the March Previews and is scheduled to arrive in stores on May 28 with a cover price of $3.99 U.S.

    And earlier in May, Grant Morrison and J.G. Jones present the FINAL CRISIS: SKETCHBOOK! Take a behind-the-scenes look at the process of creating Final Crisis! Featuring spectacular sketches and character designs by J.G. Jones and script notes and designs by Grant Morrison, this special issue will give readers a sneak preview of what to expect in Final Crisis.

    FINAL CRISIS: SKETCHBOOK is solicited in the March Previews and is scheduled to arrive in stores on May 14 with a cover price of $2.99 U.S.
