This time, I’m not waiting the end of the event. DC Comics had announced the program and there’s no reason for them to change it. That said, I’ll update this page if there’s something new, but it’s not Marvel we are talking about here.

What is Dark Nights: Metal?

Dark Nights: Metal is a Batman Event written by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo. The two collaborators are back with a new ambitious story about a mysterious metal and a lot of bat stuffs connected to the origin of the bat persona. No spoilers here !

It builds on elements introduced in Batman: Court of Owls and during the rest of the Snyder/Capullo run on the main bat New 52 series. It started in June and it will continue for a few months, the ending is announced for February. So, bookmark this article if you don’t want to miss anything.
