    Like DC's other ___ Crisis companions, this one includes a mishmash of material that isn't necessary, but can add to the full story. There's a Director's Cut of Final Crisis #1, with the black and white drawings, the original script, and creator commentaries. Probably much more interesting for those who really enjoyed Final Crisis. There's a Libra backstory, which I simply couldn't get into. And then there's Requiem and Resistance. Requiem is almost necessary, especially for everybody who felt l Like DC's other ___ Crisis companions, this one includes a mishmash of material that isn't necessary, but can add to the full story.

Requiem is almost necessary, especially for everybody who felt like J'onn got a raw deal in Final Crisis. It gives his death more meaning, and gives him something like a proper send off. Resistance fills in some of the blanks with Checkmate, and Mr. Terrific, and the OMACs. It's a nice story to fill in some of what was going on in some other parts of the DC Universe while the Anti-Life Equation was making the rounds. Actually a fairly interesting collection, in all.

    The original stories in this book add some heart to the whiz-bang gadgetry of the main Final Crisis story. The funeral for one Justice League character is interesting, though it seems a bit pointless to go over the career of a character that's supposed to be dead. There's also a Checkmate-heavy story that lets Snapper Carr, Mr. Terrific, and the Cheetah shine. The page count is filled by a deconstruction of Final Crisis #1--there are separate black-and-white pages, Grant Morrison's full script, The original stories in this book add some heart to the whiz-bang gadgetry of the main Final Crisis story.

There's also a sketchbook, which humorously includes a couple characters that get two panels or less in the actual series.

    The funeral story was okay, and I appreciated the "commentary" to the first issue. Overall, it seemed superfluous and unnecessary. I was hoping for some more insights into what the big story was trying to accomplish. The funeral story was okay, and I appreciated the "commentary" to the first issue.

    A companion to Final Crisis, one part containing some of Grant Morrison's thoughts/insider's view on Part 1. This has some valuable info and is somewhat interesting. The 2nd part is the best part for me, which is Final Crisis:Requiem, devoted entirely to The Martian Manhunter and his death, which in the book is so quick it's over with in less than 2 pages. I feel this would have been a worthy addition to the Final Crisis Book, as it shows the respect due to a character than was never Superman/Ba A companion to Final Crisis, one part containing some of Grant Morrison's thoughts/insider's view on Part 1.

I feel this would have been a worthy addition to the Final Crisis Book, as it shows the respect due to a character than was never Superman/Batman level, but in some ways was the most important member ever of the Justice League. After reading this, I felt the writers did a very good job of this and felt reassured his character was treated with the proper send off. The 3rd part was about Mister Terrific and the last few holdouts from Checkmate resisting Darkseid's forces. Kinda interesting but also kind of ho-hum. Overall some good info, but not essential other than the Requiem.

    The events of DC’s Final Crisis have brought forward a plethora of stories dealing with Darkseid’s attempt to rule the Universe. Earth is caught up in this disaster all the while the rest of the superheroes do their best to contain this nightmare. Interesting 'coda' of sorts for knowing about various events during the Final Crisis. The colorless panels/script and writer comments are interesting but a bit odd. The Libra story as well as the fate of the Martian Manhunter was amazing.

The Libra story as well as the fate of the Martian Manhunter was amazing. Its nice to know that he actually fought a pretty amazing encounter against the Legion Doom instead of just simply being murdered in their presence. Checkmate was a bit disorganized but still really cool, just not that great. Cheetah... Grrr. B-

    As far as Companions go, this isn't probably the best there is out there, but it is worth a read. It's not all the more insightful, and the character that are featured here are already well-rounded in the Final Crisis books that they don't need any backstory. But all that aside, I did find Grant Morrison's Directors Cut really impressive. Cool to see a behind the scenes kinda journey from script to actual comic book, plus his insights are great.

    While overall, I've felt that Final Crisis was one messy cluster-*@$%, this actually provided some depth to the overall project. Providing the details of events that get referenced (sometimes repeatedly) but never explained in the main "story". As someone who prefers strong character development and a cohesive plot, I think they could have focused more on these types of stories and less on the scripts and other stuff.

    This book is a bit of a let down. About one third of the book is the script for part of Final Crisis and some black line drawing pages. There are some nice stories, like the aftermath of J'onn J'onzz's death and how libra came to be, but this volume feels like it is an after thought, like they didn't have anywhere to put this stuff, so they mashed it all together.

    There's some value to this. The "Director's Cut" stuff has some good comments and helpful explication, but there's not enough reward here to warrant reading by any but hardcore fans. It certainly won't unravel Final Crisis for you, and the bonus stories aren't that great (particularly Libra's). There's some value to this.
