This Week (Jan 14): Final Crisis, Titans

Final Crisis #6 of 7

Written by Grant Morrison; Art and covers by J.G. Jones and Carlos Pacheco & Jesus Merino

As the entire world turns against them, the last of Earth’s Super Heroes must face the unstoppable power of the Gods of Apokolips for the final time. Supergirl vs. Mary Marvel! Superman vs. Darkseid! The fate of the Flash! And the incredible return of the New Gods! The End of Days has come and the ultimate war between good and evil will at last be decided on the battlefield of a broken world!

And as the skies bleed, as the walls between universes crumble and fall, the ultimate threat to life makes its presence felt as an evil beyond imagining arrives to claim its prize. Mandrakk the Dark Monitor is coming and the DC Multiverse will never be the same again!

Notes: Yes, it’s really coming out this week! Diamond shows it on their shipping list, and Newsarama has a preview.

Titans #9

Written by Judd Winick; Art by Howard Porter; Cover by Tony Daniel

A “Faces of Evil” issue! With Jericho around, no one is safe. He can hide in plain sight, and he’s far more powerful than he’s ever been before. Even those best equipped to understand and deal with him — his old teammates the Titans — are at a loss this time. What is his ultimate goal, and whom will he possess next to attain it?

IO9 has a preview.

    Some good Flash stuff in FC #6.

    Although, to be fair, Wally’s outrun the Black Racer twice. 😉

      Interesting statement that the Black Flash and Black Racer are the same being, but then the “many aspects of death” thing has been around since the first story with the character. Hmm, I wonder how much input Morrison had on “The Black Flash,” considering that he co-wrote the previous 9 issues with Millar.

      Back to Final Crisis, I read through it quickly at lunch, and I’m going to have to re-read it tonight. Maybe I’ll write a review.
