Are you ready to ROCK?! No? Okay, here's what to do: throw on some Maiden, tear the sleeves off your shirt and settle in with a copy of DARK NIGHTS: METAL issue #1! My name is Whitney Moore, and I'm a host for a show you may have seen called DC All Access. I'm also a bona fide metalhead, so when the opportunity to write about this exciting new series came up, I jumped at the chance!
Boring, sleepy study halls can be brutal. In fact, if you don't have enough work to occupy you, study halls can be enough to stop your school day dead in its tracks and make time slow down to a painful crawl. We've all watched the minutes on a clock tick by at what seems like the slowest possible pace. But, given all the excitement constantly happening at Super Hero High, you’d imagine the students must long for the occasional dull moment and rest from evil-minded plots.
Hit the volume and get those fists up in the air. The first issue of Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s DARK NIGHTS: METAL has arrived! A high octane, pulse-pounding thrill ride featuring the Justice League alongside a cast of new and returning favorites, Metal is primed to change the face of the DC Multiverse for good. But don’t take our word for it.
Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s DARK NIGHTS: METAL is a fast, fun and absolutely crazy comic book event featuring the Justice League alongside a cast of hundreds of your favorite DC heroes and villains and some of the most remarkable new characters we’ve ever introduced. Metal promises to reshape the nature of the DC Multiverse and impact many of our books in ways that you’ll be talking about all year long.
DC has tons of great collected editions coming out in the month of July and here are my choices for which ones you should definitely read. Let’s not waste time, let’s start talking about comic books!
When you’re a student, the return to school in the fall is always a bit of a letdown after the glorious freedom of summer. I remember that part of me was happy to see my teachers and get a chance to play with friends every day, but only part of me. Plus, there was usually the dreaded "what I did on summer vacation" assignment that always felt like a weird competition and an invitation to try to one-up your classmates.
