DARK NIGHTS DEATH METAL #1 arrives this TUESDAY night at our special DEATH METAL #1 Midnight Release (Annapolis Location only) — and it’s EPIC! Been a while since you’ve visited the DCU? This is where you return! Prepare yourself…. the Anti-Crisis is here!

We are SO FREAKIN’ PUMPED for DEATH METAL, Third Eye Faithful, and we know many of you are too.

The original DARK NIGHTS METAL series from 2017 turned out to be one of the most exciting things to happen to DC Comics in quite some time, as it introduced so much into the rich tapestry of the multiverse, from THE BATMAN WHO LAUGHS to the idea of the DARK MULTIVERSE, and more.

Now, Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo, the same team who brought you DARK NIGHTS METAL are reuniting to deliver not just an epic follow-up to DARK NIGHTS METAL… but delivering us the first true, bonafide “CRISIS”-level event since FLASHPOINT.

In other words: the way this series ends will change the entire landscape of the DCU once again, answering questions in regards to the stories that began with REBIRTH, and setting the stage for what we feel is going to be the most exciting DC Universe era yet.

Third Eye Faithful, one of our favorite storylines of the last few years from DC Comics has been their epic DARK NIGHTS METAL event, which introduced one of the coolest new characters in quite sometime: THE BATMAN WHO LAUGHS.

Now, after the culmination of things like YEAR OF THE VILLAIN (which recently exploded with the 1st appearance of PUNCHLINE), and many other key moments in the DC Universe, the world of DEATH METAL is coming to deliver a Crisis — or maybe even an Anti-Crisis — that will leave the DC Universe forever changed!

What’s the scoop on DEATH METAL?

DEATH METAL is the official sequel to the iconic, DARK NIGHTS METAL, event from 2017, and is set to deliver something bigger, badder, and even more bombastic than what we got in METAL.

In DEATH METAL, the world has been consumed by the DARK MULTIVERSE energy we were first introduced to in METAL, that brought us things like THE BATMAN WHO LAUGHS.

Conquered by the BATMAN WHO LAUGHS and his evil lieutenants, corrupted versions of heroes like Donna Troy, SHAZAM, Jim Gordon, BLUE BEETLE, HAWKMAN and SUPERGIRL, the DC Universe is the bleakest comic book future we’ve seen since the hey-day of Grant Morrison’s FINAL CRISIS or even the DAYS OF FUTURE PAST era of the X-MEN.

In DEATH METAL, Wonder Woman and Flash have made compromises to keep humanity alive in the hells cape that is modern life, while others like BATMAN, are part of an underground resistance looking to take control of their world.

And, at the heart of it? SUPERMAN is imprisoned, cursed to be a living battery for the Earth’s sun — for eternity.

At the heart of DEATH METAL, Wonder Woman alongside Batman, must rise to the task of changing the world they’ve been given by the BATMAN WHO LAUGHS.

Why is DEATH METAL so darn huge?

Third Eye Faithful: first off: it’s the dream team of Scott Snyder & Greg Capullo — two of the biggest names in comics — and one of the most iconic BATMAN creative teams to ever grace GOTHAM.

PLUS: we’ve already seen what they can do with the now-classic DARK NIGHTS METAL — so YOU KNOW THIS IS GONNA BE OFF-THE-WALL fun!

STRANGE ADVENTURES #2 delivers the 2nd follow-up issue that’s incredible from the creative team of MISTER MIRACLE (Tom King and Mitch Gerads)

We LOVED the killer debut of STRANGE ADVENTURES, as Tom King and Mitch Gerads, of MISTER MIRACLE fame, bring their unique touch to the world of ADAM STRANGE!

What is the truth about Adam Strange? When an activist who publicly accused him of war crimes ends up dead, the public begins to doubt Strange’s stories about his adventures on the planet Rann-and he’s even starting to doubt himself.

It’s going to take a special investigator to get the truth, and he’s going to have to tear apart Adam Strange’s life and reputation to do it.


A special miniseries set on two worlds, it takes two artists to bring Strange Adventures to life. Mitch Gerads tackles the earthbound sequences, while Doc Shaner launches us into space. And it’s all written by Tom King, the Eisner Award-winning writer who brought you Mister Miracle, Omega Men, and Sheriff of Babylon.

Wonder Woman Dead Earth #3 brings the second to last issue of the epic post-apocalypse Wonder Woman series on DC’s BLACK LABEL imprint — and it’s awesome! Some of the best art in DC Comics!!!

We’re huge fans of writer / artist DANIEL WARREN JOHNSON, and are so stoked to see his Wonder Woman DEAD EARTH returning this week with issue #3!

A blend of MAD MAX FURY ROAD, the DC Universe, and dystopian anime like AKIRA, Wonder Woman DEAD EARTH is one of the best kept secrets on the BLACK LABEL imprint, and a lot of it has to do with Johnson’s incredible art style.

In this weeks issue 3, the revelation of the Haedras’ true nature overwhelms even the mighty Amazon Princess, forcing Diana to seek out the one person who can help her: Superman.

But what Diana finds at the Fortress of Solitude is one of the most shocking secrets in the history of Wonder Woman.

OK, so we love great comics, right? And, we love great pirate stories, right? Pair the two together, and you got us, Third Eye Faithful, we’re on board.

High adventure on the high seas in the waning days of piracy, when men were men, and the best pirates were women!

Writer STEPHANIE PHILLIPS (Butcher of Paris, Descendent) and artist CRAIG CERMAK (Red Team, Voltron) bring to life the tale of Anne Bonny and Mary Read as they hoist the skull and crossbones, draw cutlasses, and seek a treasure that will make them legends.

In an era when sailing with women was thought to be bad luck, Anne and Mary might just be the only people capable of saving the pirate way of life.
