Ages 13+
For eons, the New Gods waged a war between good and evil.

Evil has finally won.

Victorious at long last against his enemies on the world of New Genesis, Darkseid has unleashed the forces of Apokolips on Earth. With the secret of the Anti-Life Equation at his command, Darkseid now possesses the ability to eradicate all free will from humanity-and usher in an end to the age of super heroes. Facing an ever-growing army of mindless slaves and corrupted heroes, Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and the remnants of the Justice League of America find themselves consumed by the spreading darkness. They remain humanity's only hope-the only light that will not be extinguished in the world's darkest hour. But at what cost?

Crisis by Derrick (Posted on 2/6/2019)
I've heard about the games based on this series, so it's a nice change of pace and definitely introduces me to much of the DC Earth's that I was not a aware existed.

Choppy story but well put together from a GA perspective. Good voice acting and worth getting to the end; many twists and turns.
A somewhat cleaned up version of this story by Stephen (Posted on 11/24/2018)
This GA adaptation of 2008-2009 DC Comics Final Crisis Crossover Story-Arc ( which I read almost 4 years ago and is one of the most confusing comic book story-arcs i have ever read in my own option) which is taken from the 2010 novel version by Greg Cox ( which I have not read prior) is easily the longest GA I have listened to so far at 7 hours and 42 minutes and story wise is a little confusing, complicating and strange but not bad ether, and I whould not recommend this GA to casual DC Comics fans do its complex and confusing story and themes etc, but this adaptation does benefit from great voice acting cool and epic sound effects and music, and is a better alternative then the comic book in my opinion.
Didn't like it by Jason (Posted on 8/25/2018)
If the name Grant Morrison means something to you then you should know whether or not to listen to this. He wrote the original story. For me, I don't think I have liked anything he has ever written. Wish I knew that before I started listening to it because I wouldn't have bothered. But if you like Morrison then you will probably like it. However the performance was good (voice acting, sound effects, and music).
A tidier version of a messy story by ZJ (Posted on 8/17/2018)
This is the culmination of all of DC’s Crisis books. Greg Cox had a big job in adapting the source material for this story. Final Crisis was a big DC event and the setup for it spanned across many months. Grant Morrison was the head writer on the event and Morrison is not about creating tidy stories. I realized how varied his interests and influences are when I read the script for Batman: Arkham Asylum in the 20th anniversary edition. On top of that, there’s time travel and alternate universes involved which increases the odds of unresolved threads and continuity issues. With all of this in mind, Cox did a good job of boiling the story down to a more understandable and easy to follow version of itself.

This story deals a lot with lesser known dC characters and tries to pull together a lot of backstory to resolve some existing continuity issues, and for that reason it may be less appealing to more casual DC fans. Personally, I recommend listening to the other Crisis titles before listening to Final Crisis. Unfortunately, Infinite Crisis and 52 are no longer available on the GA site, so you may have to do some searching to find them on CD.

Acting is great as always in this title. I can’t speak to the audio issues others have mentioned because it’s been a while since I listened to this title. Apparently I didn’t notice them enough to interfere with my enjoyment of the production.

Overall, Final Crisis is another good DC title from GA.

great you will not believe who is going to die in this great audio
DC Comics Final Crisis by Eoin (Posted on 11/5/2017)
This was a fantastic adaptation, very faithful to Morrison's story and it really made the complexity of the story very accessible for listeners. The clarity of the performances made the story very engaging, with the sound effects really putting the finishing touches on an immersive experience.
For hardcore DC Comic fans only by Tad (Posted on 10/31/2017)
OK. I know I'm not the target demo, as a middle-aged businessman. However, I grew up reading superhero comics, and watched the Hannah-Barbara Justice League cartoons as a kid. GA adaptations of DC or Marvel stories usually fit right in my wheelhouse, but this one was a bit over my head. I am quite familiar with the five characters on the cover, but the other 132 lesser-known heros that make up part of this story got a little hard to follow. THIS IS FOR HARDCORE DC UNIVERSE FANS and followers, and that's probably as it should be. Great production, as usual, but I needed a scorecard to keep track of all the myriad stories and characters.
Review by JEN (Posted on 10/5/2017)
I love Graphic Audio's books, but this one left me scratching my head. There were many times where the audio effects completely drowned out the narrator so I had a hard time keeping up with the scene. This story bounces around a lot in time/universe, so it would be nice to have an audible cue to signify a change when it's not obvious. While it's only a personal preference to me, the author's descriptions of the female outfits vs the male outfits seems oversexualized on the female side. The same terms are never used for male. I think the terms to describe the male's outfits are very neutral, as the female suits should be as well.
Final Crisis by joey (Posted on 9/24/2016)
Another great production from Graphic Audio on the DC universe, which was amazing. ...from start to finish. Darkseid and his evil Gods of Apokolips take over Earth. ...which impacts the other Earths in the multiverse.

The spiritual and emotional toll on the DC superheroes and their friends and family is well told in this version. It actually completes the Infinite Earths story line.
Final Crisis by Dion (Posted on 9/10/2016)
Graphic audio did a great job on the production. Extremely good. Well produced, good voice acting. Another great GA adaptation.
Final Crisis by Aaron (Posted on 10/13/2015)
The very first DC Book I ever listened to and I was hooked. While not a DC fan by any stretch of the imagination I loved this book. Started my love for DC at least in the graphic audio world.
Great production by Kevin (Posted on 8/26/2015)
The production values, voice acting and narration were top-notch, however the story itself suffered by focusing a bit too much on characters that didn't seem to move the plot along, and by taking some of DC's best heroes out commission early on. Still, very enjoyable and something any DC fan like myself should listen to.
Good prodution by Brice (Posted on 3/12/2015)
Graphic audio did a great job on the production, story itself jumps around a lot and can get confusing.
me likey comics by jeremy (Posted on 1/29/2015)
It was slightly hard to follow, but the action was great, and who am I kidding, I loved it.
Confusing, but better than the original source material by Joe (Posted on 12/23/2014)
I can't believe that GA was able to have Final Crisis make sense. It's interesting that the original story line started out linear and strong and then devolved into a strange multi-meta mishmash where Superman can sing a note to end the universe.

This book streamlined most of it down to it's essence so that the first two acts are much stronger. of course, even the magic of GA cannot divine a straightforward way to interpret the story.

Loved the audioversion as the voice acting was the same high level of quality that we have grown to expect. I was not crazy about the original material. But, GA did the best they could with what they had.
final crisis by Gavin (Posted on 12/14/2014)
I seriously can't believe how much I love these audio books, although they are so much more than that, "a movie in your mind" could not be more accurate, anther excellent comic title thanks graphic audio
DC Comics Final Crisis by Xiong (Posted on 10/12/2014)
Overall I enjoyed this one, but will admit that the story was a little difficult to follow. The scenes jumped around a lot and there were so many characters introduced. This is very different from what I'm used to in the other DC audiobooks which has one or a few main characters and a linear story. It's different but not in a bad way. With time travel, parallel universes, and a ton of characters I totally understand how difficult it would be to have just one main character and a linear story. One thing that I really do have to comment on is that I didn't enjoy the exaggerated accents of the Black and Asian characters too much. I mean this as in there were other characters who didn't speak any English at all but it worked out fine. The exaggerated and stereotypical accents were like nails on a chalkboard to me. Besides these two things I really did enjoy this one. Lots of action and suspense. Plus in the crisis series you never know what will happen so the suspense and anticipation is on a different level. I will probably re-listen to it over a few more times while I'm at work.
The Greatest Crisis by Chelsea (Posted on 9/1/2014)
All of the other crisis's lead to this. Graphic Audio busts out all the stops for this 8 hour epic audio drama. The music depicted in this story is beautiful and ominous. The voice acting is top notch and the story direction does help organize the story a little better than the original comics. Each major hero has character defining moments. Plus the return of one dc's greatest heroes. 5/5.
A mess made tidy by John (Posted on 4/30/2014)
GraphicAudio is great at making messy stories more understandable and this is no exception. It is a great adaptation with solid voice work, a cohesive script and a great story. I recommend it.
I Could Be Snarky... by Michael Bailey (Posted on 3/3/2014)
...and write, "At last it makes sense!" but that's not fair to the producers nor is it fair to the source material. FINAL CRISIS the comic was a complicated affair and between the novel by Greg Cox and the performers and director that put this production together the story has a more mainstream appeal. Some may think this takes away from the original but it made me appreciate the story all the more. To be fair I checked out of the whole Monitor sub-plot but the straight ahead Darkseid portion of the story was amazingly adapted.
Graphic Audio by eli (Posted on 2/9/2014)
I thoroughly enjoyed all the Crisis audiobooks. Very well done with a plot that moves along just quick enough. Also, I was hesitant to buy a download, but I went ahead and did it. Unfortunately, my hard drive crashed and I lost my files. However, GraphicAudio was gracious enough to let me redownload them, something that I had concerns about when purchasing. Five stars to Final Crisis and its' companion pieces and five stars to graphic audio for sense of security when buying.
Most Excellent by Paul (Posted on 1/28/2014)
I just fell in love with this as I was listening to it and didn't want to stop listening to it. It's story lines like this which makes me love DC and esepcially when you get a full cast and sound effect audiobooks in not just one but two parts.

GraphicAudio are my absoutely favourite people to do audiobooks.
Great Audio by Comix Fan (Posted on 1/25/2014)
Final Crisis was a game changer in DC comic universe. This audio does great job with adapting the story.
Review by Smitty (Posted on 12/4/2013)
Maybe I was distracted while listening to this one but, I just found it difficult to keep interested in the story. That plus, the problems with the sound levels, (music/sound effects drowning out the voice actors and narrator). All of the voice acting is top notch as always. Like I said, I think I might have just been out of it or something so I plan on giving this one another go and may come back and redo my review.
Final Crisis by Chris (Posted on 10/30/2013)
Extremely good. Well produced, good voice acting. Keeps you coming back for more.
