It’s official: JG Jones won’t be drawing the final issue of FINAL CRISIS. Instead, Doug Mahnke, the third artist on the series (after Jones and Carlos Pacheco), will draw the whole thing. Jones answered an email at CBR with a typically classy response:
Via an email reply, Jones told CBR News that it was his preference not to comment “on any of this.”
Jones did however offer, “Any problems completing the series are my own. I love Doug Mahnke’s art, and he would have probably been a better choice to draw this series in the first place.”
Jones will not be redrawing the issue for the collected edition, either.
