Namely, the creative team on the story arc is award-winning talent. In a few words, award-winning writer Grant Morrison and the incredible artist Dough Mahnke collaborate on the series.
For his part, the writer is known for the very popular Doom Patrol, Animal Man for DC’s Vertigo in the late 1980s and his iconic run on JLA in the late 1990s and early 2000s. In fact, an iconic personality, Morrison has fascinated with his eccentricism and his support for minorities..
When both superstars collaborate on this work, you expect a legendary take on classic superheroes. In fact, the creative team shook the DC universe!
A CONCLUSION TO THE DC CRISES
When Grant Morrison created Final Crisis, it was promoted with the tagline “Heroes die. Legends live forever.” Indeed, in my commentary on Final Crisis, I reveal that the objective per editorial mandate was to end the DC multiverse.
Certainly, the encyclopedia crossover event concludes all the ramifications from the past DC crises; in particular, Crisis on Infinite Earths (1986). Though classic heroes such as the Seven Soldiers of Victory make their appearance, the comic makes it clear that there are major deaths and the DC multiverse dies.
Now, the heroes make one final push to save the DC multiverse from Darkseid and the Anti-Life Equation. Witness one of the most iconic finishes in DC history with the Death of Darkseid.
Importantly, Boss Dark Side owns a long list of major character deaths in the crossover event. And the violence, the brutality and the blood spread everywhere. Certainly, the crisis is a response to the economic condition at the time.
Together, the Justice League saves the remaining survivors from the ALE on the Watchtower. Before, the heroes face evil in its powerful form. When Superman is cornered by an enslaved Earth and Darkseid, all hope seems lost.
Definitely, this comic showed some of the most dramatic events in DC history with the opposition of Superman alone against Darkseid with the entire Earth and the Justice League slaves to the ALE, and the death of the New God in issue #7.
Indeed, buy this comic to witness Wally and Barry vibrate through Darkeid’s body as they outrace the Black Racer. In the end, the comic concluded with the restoration of the DC multiverse.
SALES, SALES, SALES
Really, Final Crisis #7 did not boost sales for the series but it did perform outstandingly. In fact, according to Comichron, at Number 22, it was the last Final Crisis comic with 109,400 Diamond unit sales for the year 2009.
However, in March 2009, the issue sold a very low 1,962 copies. Though its yearly performance benefited from a lack of quality crossovers at its competitor Marvel. Let’s compare to the other comics in March 2009.
