Final Crisis Resources

Richard Pachter made an excellent point, and honestly, I was planning on doing this BEFORE the FAQ came out, but just plum forgot.

Here are a list of great annotations of Final Crisis, as well as links to Grant Morrison’s Newsarama interviews for Final Crisis (plus his exit interview at Newsarama and IGN).

Douglas Wolk’s Final Crisis Annotations

David Uzumeri’s Final Crisis Annotations

Mindless Ones’ classic “annocommentations”

Timothy Callahan and Chad Nevett’s Final Crisis discussions

Newsarama interviews with Grant Morrison

Interview leading up to Final Crisis

Final Crisis #1

Final Crisis #2

Final Crisis #3

Final Crisis Exit Interview Part 1

Final Crisis Exit Interview Part 2

I have no idea how to link to Dan Didio’s 20 Answers, 1 Question thing he does on Newsarama. Does it have a category I can link to? Not every installment is on point, but a lot of them are.

Over on IGN, Dan Phillips did a great post-Final Crisis interview with Morrison which you can read here

I just wanted to say Well Done! Mr. Cronin on your Final Crisis FAQ. I read the whole and its responses and I must say it greatly helped. You answered each question with courtesy and insight rarely found on comic boards. I know it couldn’t have been easy with the repetition of questions and the often confusing source. It warms the heart to read a thorough discussion of a topic without it descending into insult or condescension. I look forward to your further posts. Once again, many thanks!

I can’t imagine this was an easy feat but your efforts are appreciated. Too bad a lot of this information didn’t find its way into the actual comic – doh!

I’m old school, so an actual compendium — dead-trees or digital — would be nice, too.

Come on, Brian; what else do you have to do?

@Richard Pachter – I did my own annotations in a magazine format if you’re interested. You can download a copy at http://www.weeklycrisis.com/2009/02/tmc-monthly-crisis-magazine.html and a preview scan (image resolution is cut in half though) be found at http://img11.imageshack.us/img11/2289/tmc012fcannotated01.jpg

Thanks, Kirk. I will definitely take a look at it.

The IGN interview with Grant Morrison was great! I really like reading about his higher ambitions with the story beyond the plot.
