If you were still waiting for February’s Absolute Final Crisis oversized hardcover volume from DC Comics, you may have to wait a little longer. In fact, you might as well add it to your Christmas list.
But one additional present you’ll be getting is seven new and exclusive pages to the volume by Grant Morrison and Doug Mahnke. Which, you know, might just help make sense of the while thing.
As well as containing Final Crisis #1-7, Final Crisis: Submit #1, Final Crisis: Superman Beyond #1-2 with the 3D glasses to read them with, and the Final Crisis Sketchbook, it will also contain the directors cut of Final Crisis #1 and most importantly Batman #682-#683, which are pretty essential to the narrative.
There was some criticism over the original solicitation for missing those issues out. Such people will now be satisfied… even if they have to wait a little longer. The new Absolute Final Crisis volume will retain its $99.99 price, even with the new added fifty pages of material.
