Jones was intended to be the sole artist on the Grant Morrison DC event book Final Crisis. However, due to delays, Jones was helped by artist Carlos Pacheco from issues #4-6, and replaced for issue 7 by Doug Mahnke. Jones noted that "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.
