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.
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.
Wonder Woman has been around for 76 years. She is, hands down, the most iconic female super hero that has ever been created. That’s a pretty impressive curriculum vitae in and of itself, but that’s only the tip of the iceberg. From her inception, it has been pretty easy to cast your gaze across the swath of popular culture and see where Princess Diana of Themyscira’s influence has found footing. She has spawned hundreds—if not thousands—of super-powered female characters that we have all picked up and read and loved almost as much as the original.
