This is the second prequel to DC's Metal event. It picks up right where the Forge left off, focusing on the same characters with cameos from several other prominent Justice League and Batman characters. The Cover The cover was done, like The Forge, by Jim Lee, Scott Williams, and Alex Sinclair. It carries a stronger … Continue reading Dark Days: The Casting
This is the first lead-in to the upcoming DC Metal Crossover Event. It appears to be revolving around the Nth Metal(I'm not sure what it is myself, so if this is confusing, you're not alone). It seems pretty dark, and quite Batman-centric. The Cover The cover just looks cool. It reminds me of anniversary issues … Continue reading Dark Days: The Forge Review
