We have been SO in love with the incredible DC Comics event, DARK NIGHTS METAL, that Scott Snyder and crew have masterminded since Summer, and with every new installment, we find ourselves more and more hooked!
When we saw that one of our favorite writers of all-time at Third Eye, the one and only GRANT MORRISON, would be lending his pen to the DCU once again — we knew we had to give this one an extra special shout out!
Continued from the pages of the bestselling DARK NIGHTS: METAL!
The Dark Knights ride through the farthest reaches of the Multiverse to track down the unlikeliest of teams: The Flash, Cyborg, Raven and Detective Chimp.
The mission: keep these heroes from completing their desperate quest to save all of existence!
Plus, Challengers’ Mountain crackles with dark energy that will release an army of the world’s worst nightmares into the streets of Gotham City!
This one-shot also answers the question: Where are the Metal Men? And who is the latest addition to the team?
Third Eye Faithful – we didn’t think there was anything that could top what’s already come before in METAL, but we’re telling you right now: bringing the legendary GRANT MORRISON (JLA, BATMAN RIP, BATMAN AND ROBIN, INVISIBLES, FINAL CRISIS, MULTIVERSITY, HAPPY and so much more) into the mix definitely does it!

What’s the scoop on METAL?

Spinning out of a mystery that Batman has been investigating ever since the very first issue of Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s run that began with THE COURT OF OWLS, and has continued into Rebirth with the recent revelations from THE BUTTON storyline, METAL is the culmination of everything that all star BATMAN creative team Snyder and Capullo have been building towards for the last few years.
Whether it’s Nth Metal or Doctor Fate’s helmet – there’s a lot of strange and mysterious metals in the DC Universe that do strange and mysterious things.
And, there’s something about them that’s connected to the entirety of the DCU Multiverse in a big way.
You better believe BATMAN has been on top of this from the get go — but, now, the very DARK MATTER that he’s been investigating is beginning to seep into the reality of the current DC Universe… and with it, it’s bringing something very interesting: the Dark Multiverse.
Just like there’s 52 Earths, and a different reality for each – there’s a dark side to these worlds, a dark multiverse, and as it’s tentacles extend into the DC Universe.. they’re changing it in a very frightening way.
All the mysteries you’ve been waiting to see come to light, from the myster of the THREE JOKERS, to the long-time intrigue surrounding things like Hawkman and Nth Metal.. it’s all going to be explored here in METAL!
Even more exciting — this storyline delivers the first real crisis of the Rebirth era, as the DC Universe finds itself terraformed into a horrific mirror of itself.
Didn’t think Gotham couldn’t get any scarier? Wait until you see it after the Dark Matter has had its way with it.
If Frank Frazetta and Jack Kirby collaborated with Seasons in the Abyss as their soundtrack — you’d get METAL!
