During the DARK NIGHTS: METAL panel last weekend at New York Comic Con, in the midst of talking about The New Age of Heroes and the impact Metal is having on the DC Universe, the panelists announced a mysterious new Metal one-shot that will be hitting stands in February. Called DARK KNIGHTS RISING: THE WILD HUNT, it will come out between the fifth and sixth issues of Metal and will feature the evil Batmen known now as the “Dark Knights.” However, little more was revealed about the book… until now.
What's up DC fans, I'm your mistress of metal, Whitney Moore, here to take you on a journey through space, time and the mysteries of the universe as we navigate DARK NIGHTS: METAL together! Issue #2 is out now, so let's all put down the battle jackets we've been sewing patches on and hand-studding for a while and settle in!
Look alive, DC fans, we have something special for you. If you visit our site regularly, you may have noticed that we have a typical way of doing things. Unless you’re attending one of our Comic-Con panels, we usually don’t preview new comics until the art in them is largely finished.
However, we’re doing things a little different today, and giving you a look at a few comics that are still very much in progress. Why? Because we’re talking about DARK NIGHTS: METAL, that’s why.
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.
The team behind 2017’s hottest event, DARK NIGHTS: METAL, Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo, were joined by DARK MATTER contributors Jim Lee, Phillip Tan, James Tynion IV and Robert Venditti in this revealing hour of comics!
Now that you’ve made it through both DARK DAYS: THE FORGE and DARK DAYS: THE CASTING, it’s time to really start digging into the nitty-gritty before the event itself, DARK NIGHTS: METAL, explodes across the DC Universe this summer.
And there’s definitely a lot to sort through. With just two prelude books, Metal has already managed to set the stage for the next year of Rebirth in a major way. It might even feel a little bit intimidating if you’re trying to come at the event with all your super heroic homework done and ready to go.
Everything is about to change.
