Knowing what James Tynion IV has planned for Wonder Woman and Justice League Dark in October’s “New Justice” event, JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK/WONDER WOMAN: THE WITCHING HOUR, you’d think that members of the League would get some well-deserved downtime afterward, especially with Thanksgiving on the horizon.
For most of us, the only frightening things we’re likely to find in the basement are our father’s fluorescent parachute pants and maybe a mouse or squirrel who has met an untimely demise. We’re not likely to find any dragon skeletons, human-bat hybrids, or nightmarishly mutated cadavers.
Then again, none of us live in the Hall of Justice.
Welcome to week two of four in JUSTICE LEAGUE: NO JUSTICE, where things are going from bad to worse on a cosmic scale—though, really, that's probably not that much of a surprise, right?

The Femme Fatale is well known in detective stories, particularly ones with a noir feel—a woman from an investigator's past returns, bringing mystery, deceit and danger into their life. BATWOMAN VOL. 1: THE MANY ARMS OF DEATH, written by Marguerite Bennett and James Tynion IV, not only plays with the expectations of the trope, it shows how the role may shift based on perspective.
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.
