DARK NIGHTS: METAL #1
Writer: Scott Snyder

Publisher: DC Comics
Cover Price: $4.99
SOLICITATION: 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!
MATTHEW: You can’t kill The Metal.
The Metal will live on. *guitar riff*
STEPHEN: BUY THIS BOOK! BUY THIS BOOK! BUY THIS BOOK!
Dark Nights: Metal #1 is really good, and though it hasn’t been promoted as the next DC’s 52 event, it feels like a 52 event. While you don’t need to read Dark Days: The Forge, and Dark Days: The Casting, it will help explain some of the comments made in book. Of course you could also read our Dark Nights: Metal #1 annotated article to learn more.
