Preview: DARK KNIGHTS: METAL #1 looks to turn the DC Universe up to 11

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’ve been planning METAL for as long as I’ve been writing Batman, but I want METAL to be built upon the stories happening now in Rebirth. Most of all we want to create new material that feels really modern and different. And above all, it’s going to be fun. Even with terror and nightmares, it won’t be grim. DARK NIGHTS: METAL will be celebratory, huge and crazy.” — SCOTT SNYDER

“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

The superstar BATMAN team of writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo reunite for a massive, universe-spanning event!

DARK DAYS: THE FORGE and THE CASTING hinted at dark corners of reality that have never been seen till now! Now, as DARK NIGHTS: METAL begins, the Dark Multiverse is revealed in all its devastating danger—and the threats it contains are coming for the DC Universe!
DARK NIGHTS: METAL is a DC event unlike any other—one that will push Batman, Superman and heroes of the Justice League beyond their limits to take on threats unlike any our world has ever seen! It will take the combined might of the World’s Greatest Heroes as you’ve never seen them before to face what’s coming their way!

  1. FORGE was interesting, but I’m not convinced the DCU needs an explanation of how various super-hero doo-dads like Wonder Woman’s bracelets and Hawkman’s belt buckle are related. Also, not sure why DC felt the need for three artists on FORGE; I’d have preferred Kubert draw the whole thing. That way, they could have had Lee focus on a Batman one-shot or some other 100% Lee book. (I get the marketing angle.)
