Over at Newsarama, they have the link to see some sketches of Darkseid for Final Crisis, and also to see 5 pages of Final Crisis.
Wow....Jones left me speechless with the art. Simply amazing.
That was great, fascinating to see the way J.G. Jones interpreted the script; and beautifully.
Well, guess we know where Orion shuffled off to after COUNTDOWN #2.
And are those.........................skis?
Seriously, though, that art is BEAUTIFUL.
I almost hope the book ships late if he's pumping out artwork like this. (ALMOST)
I would've read this bi-monthly for art that gorgeous and forty-eight pages of Morrison. It looks awesome, and it sounds awesome, and now I can't wait to read the first issue.
And in light of his earlier comments, now I can't wait to watch Turpin slowly crack under the weight of supermen. I like that bit of foreshadowing done here.
Go !@#$ yourself.
damn....black racer, orion
orion is the first death scene i guess?
they label me a villain cause of how I express my feelings
Looks fantastic. Looks like this will not only follow up on DotNG, SSoV and Morrison's run on JLA but parts of 52 as well. I'm very excited.
I'm STILL with Iron Man.
God this looks amazing in every concievable way. I have exactly two criticisms, both of which are vastly outweighed by the general art, writing, feel, everything:
First, while staggering, the art does lack a sense of epicness at parts in my view- you didn't get the same sense of chaos from the art as the script suggested.
Secondly, NOT a fan of the thing over Darkseid's mouth, which just looks stupid- but love the Omega symbol and the Apokoliptian symbol. Also adore those Morrison touches like having no shadow and everything he touches rotting away.
"After all, John McCain's led a very Biblical life. Like his namesake Cain, he is not afraid to go negative on a brother. Like John the Baptist, he paved the way for the new Messiah, and like Moses, he takes advice from a Bush who is going up in flames."- Stephen Colbert
Morrison's script has some problems, too, at least if these pages are published in consecutive order. There's an inadequate transition between Turpin's discovery of Orion to his conversation with Montoya; until I read the script, I didn't realize both scenes featured the same character. And what the heck is up with inserting a wordless shot of Manhattan (altered by the specific inclusion of non-existant architecture) and then immediately shifting to an establishing shot of a scene in Detroit? If you recognize the architecture enough to identify both cities, you're left confused; if you don't recognize it, you assume that the whole page happens in the same city. And it wouldn't seem to matter a whit if everything on the page did happen in the same city. I suppose this might make sense in context, though: perhaps there are similar scenes of Manhattan throughout the issue, building to some climax, and perhaps the locations are identified earlier in the issue so that the reader knows? We'll see.
FULL BEAR TRAP!

EVIL WINS: EW.com Posts Five "Final Crisis" Pages
EW.com has published a first look at five pages of art and script from "Final Crisis" #1 by Grant Morrison and JG Jones, three weeks before it goes on sale May 28. The site has also posted Darkseid images from "Final Crisis Sketchbook."
Not much of a DC guy, but I think I may give this a try, the DC Universe #0 got me interested. And now more so with those preview pages. Do y'all think this will live up to the hype or will be a letdown like a lot of people thought Countdown was?
uh I can't seem to find the Black racer anywhere??? where is he? am i missing something? DOH!
