Chances are, if you've been poking around the DC Universe lately you've probably stumbled across the name Barbatos. He's been a pretty big-ticket item lately (you know, in like...a horrifying sort of way), with a nice big boost in prominence thanks to the epic events of DARK NIGHTS: METAL. But the truth is he's actually far from a newcomer to the DCU.
The New Age of DC Heroes is marching forward with the latest addition to the lineup, THE UNEXPECTED by Ryan Sook and Steve Orlando, telling the story of a group of unlikely heroes who, because of the events of DARK NIGHTS: METAL, are called to action across the Multiverse.
Featuring Neon the Unknown, Ascendant, Viking Judge and Firebrand, The Unexpected is primed to be your onramp to all the crazy, weird, wonderful corners of the DC Universe. But don't take my word for it. Let Sook and Orlando speak for themselves.
What do Nightwing, Robin, a crazed surgeon who wears a pig mask and a mysterious doctor who may or may not be an extra-dimensional demon have in common?
Well...more than you might expect.

All week long we’ve been celebrating The Multiversity, Grant Morrison’s new series set within the DC Multiverse. While it’s possible to enjoy the comic without being familiar with the Multiverse, it can’t hurt to at least know where the idea comes from, and some of the pre-existing comics that have close ties to The Multiversity.
However, before we even get into where the Multiverse comes from, we suppose we should first explain what it is for anyone out there who may be new to the concept.
