Last month saw the release of Dark Days: The Forge #1, which in turn leads to next week’s Dark Days: The Casting #1, and finally in August we arrive at Dark Knights: Metal #1: the big DC Summer event that reteams the best-selling creative nucleus of the New 52 Batman run: Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo.
Last month’s The Forge was a blast of deeply held secrets and a deep-dive into DC mythology, and even brought back Plastic Man! And if that’s just the prelude, I can’t wait to see what the actual event itself shapes up to be. It’s in stores on August 16th, here’s the solicit:
“I’m looking forward to rock’n and roll’n together again. Fans have been loud and clear; they want more from us. We’re primed and ready to blow it up.” — GREG CAPULLO
