Hey, kudos to the folks at DC Comics for doing right by the Final Crisis HC. Originally scheduled to contain just FC #1-7 for 25 bucks, it’s now also going to include the absolutely-essential Superman Beyond #1 & #2, as well as Final Crisis: Submit, all by Final Crisis author Grant Morrison, an extra 100+ pages for 30 bucks total. From Newsarama’s coverage of this weekend’s DC Nation panel at Megacon in Florida:
Dan Didio: “…One thing DC realized is that when we collect Final Crisis in hardcover, it will have to include all 7 issues, 2 issues of Superman Beyond, and one issue of Submit. Once the material is all together, and when you read it as a whole, it’s simple. Originally, I wasn’t fully supportive, but for the full and better reading experience, it’s a home run.”
I’m really glad that reason won out, and someone convinced Dan Didio to make a good decision.
From a retail perspective: I just quadruled the number of copies we’ll be ordering of this book. So, you know, good call DC Comics.
