Stated Dynamite, "The conclusion of Shades of Gray is full of danger, doppelgangers and death as Sara and the Witchblade at last discover what evil truly lies in the heart of Dorian Gray! All will be revealed, including the identity of the mysterious mastermind behind all the murder and mayhem! Who has been pulling Dorian and Sara's strings all along? Find out as writers Leah Moore and John Reppion reveal the mystery of the ages in 'The Final Curtain'!"
"Gray is a complicated character, "Shades of Gray co-writer Leah Moore described Dorian Gray. "He has a darker side, which shows itself quite literally in his famous painting, but he also has a conscience and is a bit of a rogue. Over the long years he has lived, there's been a struggle between the two sides of him, and Sara plays a big part in the final battle. I think it's safe to assume there's a painting tucked away somewhere, but even we don't know what it looks like…we'll have to wait and see!"
