Dark Nights: Metal #3

DC Metal 3 coverScott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s epic power ballad continues with Metal #3.  If you are not caught up with the series, you can check out my reviews of Metal #1 and Metal #2.  We last left off with Batman inadvertently opening the portal to the Dark Multiverse, allowing the Dark Batmen to enter, and cause all kinds of chaos (check out Gotham Resistance or the Dark Batmen origins).

This story starts in a dream. Damian Wayne and Jon Kent are rocking out as their parents, along with Diana wait for the rest of the Justice League to arrive to celebrate their victory in the war.  But that celebration is short lived as they notice Bruce beginning to bleed in the shape of a bat.  As he says “Carpe Diem,” Barbatos springs from Bruce, leaving Superman to fight him, again.  Superman has been fighting Barbatos continuously for what has seemed like a lifetime, until Wonder Woman pulls him from a tower of people.  (more…)

Dark Nights: Metal #2

DC Metal 2We last left off with this series learning that the Metal title was in reference to at least the Nth Metal, and was connected to a substance know as Dark Matter from a Dark Multiverse.  Batman being Batman decided to be all Batmany about it and rushed off on his own to try solve this crisis.  (It’s DC, we might as well call it a crisis.)

Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s epic, Metal, continued this week with issue #2.  This issue continues the quick pace established in the first issue, weaving together action, exposition, and witty one-liners into another fantastic issue.  Here’s what you need to know about, though you should know that Damian is totally winning in this issue.  (more…)

DC Metal #1

DC Metal 1Not going to lie.  When I found out that DC Metal was going to be featuring Nth metal and dark matter, I was a little disappointed.  I was really hoping that the Justice League was going to forming a rock band and going on tour.  You can’t honestly tell me that you would not read that.

But anyways, this story starts with the Justice League on a recently created Warworld, and are forced to fight in Mongul’s gladiator pits.  They are pitted against creations of the Toyman, but he built into the robots an easy way out.  The League finds these buttons, go into the robots, and join up to form Voltron.  Or something.  But it was fun.  (more…)
