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 !
