    BATMAN #682 AND #683 TO TIE INTO FINAL CRISIS

    "Batman R.I.P." is over - and now, DC Comics reveals that December's BATMAN #682 and #683, featuring the story "Last Rites," both tie into FINAL CRISIS.

    Written by Grant Morrison, with art by Lee Garbett and Trevor Scott, a cover by Alex Ross and a variant cover by Tony Daniel, "Last Rites" begins in BATMAN #682 (SEP080111) and spins out of events of FINAL CRISIS #2.

    "Last Rites" concludes this month in BATMAN #683, by the same creative team, with a story that feeds into the upcoming FINAL CRISIS #6.

    Both BATMAN issues feature FINAL CRISIS and "Last Rites" branding on their covers.

    BATMAN #682 (SEP080111) is available for reorder and is set to arrive in stores on December 3.

    BATMAN #683 (SEP080113) is available for advance reorder and is scheduled to arrive in stores on December 24.

    FINAL CRISIS #6 (SEP080099) is available for advance reorder and is scheduled to arrive in stores on January 14.
