DC Comics has announced Batman #682 and #683 will tie-in to the events of Final Crisis.  The Last Rites storyline will be written by Grant Morrison, and follow the events following Final Crisis #2.  Likewise, Batman #683 will lead right into Final Crisis #6.  There’s a lot of back and forth going on, and if your head is spinning, you’re not alone.

Both BATMAN issues feature FINAL CRISIS and “Last Rites” branding on their covers.

BATMAN #682 (SEP080111) is available for reorder and is set to arrive in stores on December 3.

BATMAN #683 (SEP080113) is available for advance reorder and is scheduled to arrive in stores on December 24.

FINAL CRISIS #6 (SEP080099) is available for advance reorder and is scheduled to arrive in stores on January 14.

  1. O’Neil is doing Detective Comics #851 and Batman #684.

    I’m really hoping that Batman #682 and #683 offer up more answers and actually bridge the events of FC. Overall, I do look forward to seeing how it all wraps up. That is, hoping that it does indeed wrap up.

  2. I can’t wait until all the Black Hand and Final Crisis poopy is over with so we can just go back to regular Batman stories. If he’s going to die, then die already. If not? Then let’s move on. Everybody already knows that nobody in DC Comics ever stays dead. Come on now…
