The Trade starts out with about 50 pages of black and white pages from Final Crisis with no dialogue bubbles. Instead, it gives us the script separate. Why do this? It makes no sence. The companion to Infinite Crisis was much better than this.

Instead, it includes the first issue of Final Crisis, only in black & white, without text. If you've already got Final Crisis, you've got the same thing in color, with text, so this is pretty superfluous. Afterwards, you get "director's commentary" by JG Jones and Grant Morrison. This offers some nice insight, but they only talk about the first issue. It would have been much better if they'd looked at the whole series. On the plus side, it does provide some nice closure around the Martain Manhunter's death that was seriously lacking in Final Crisis. The other two stories are entertaining, but nothing amazing. Overall, this feels like the extras they slap onto the DVD they rush out right after a movie leaves the theater, instead of the Deluxe 2-Disc Collectors Edition. There was so much amazing stuff in Final Crisis, so many ideas, events and characters that could have been explained more and expanded on in a companion volume. Unfortunately, this isn't that companion volume.
Please note that the actual Final Crisis collection contains Final Crisis #1-7, Submit, and Superman Beyond #1-2, so if you are looking for any of those stories, you now know where to look.
I enjoy it and found it very helpful to understand a thing or two on the main story.
I've read Infinite Crisis companion and I thought it wasn't helpful at all, but this one I liked it and I'll keep it.
