Eking Out Dark Crisis For All Its Worth In Today's DC Comics

Dark Crisis is FOCing its final issue, right now, and writer Joshua Williamson has egged the pudding, saying "To me DC (and comics) should always be building. Building new exciting stories and adding to the mythology. That's what Dark Crisis was about to me. How DC is at its best when it embraces its history and builds on it. When I started work on the series that was what we wanted to say by the end of the event… And we're almost there. The final issue of DARK CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS! This final oversized conclusion has amazing art by Daniel Sampere and Alejandro Sánchez but it also has some epilogues by guest artists that we haven't announced yet. #6 of the series came out last week and I always saw that as the big battle issue. The fight isn't over, but #7 is more personal and emotional. It wraps up the story and some emotional arcs set up in the first issue. This last issue sets the stage for DC in 2023, has a few surprises, teases at a returning major threat to DC's heroes and villains and has some first appearances."
