The Dark Multiverse is coming, and nothing will ever be the same! One of the biggest events in DC history is here in the shocking, action-packed epic Dark Nights: Metal from critically acclaimed author Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo, reuniting after their smash-hit Batman series.
Beyond our universe there is the Multiverse...and beneath the Multiverse is a nightmare realm where every fear that has ever been felt on our Earth becomes reality. Now an evil force as old as time wants to drag us down into the shadows, into the realm of never-ending terror.
But when the door between worlds opens, it's not just any nightmares that come spilling out. They call themselves the Dark Knights. Each one is a twisted version of Batman from a world where one of his worst fears has come true.
With the invasion underway and Batman trapped in the Dark Multiverse, the Justice League must undergo an impossible quest to find the mysterious metals capable of repelling the Dark Knights and their master, the fearsome Barbatos. If they fail, everything they've ever known will be plunged into eternal darkness. But the true horror is...what if they're already too late?

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Enthralling, nonstop action and just plain fun, this is the level of outrageous comic book crossover stories that so few can handle as elegantly as Scott Snyder. He pushes the Justice League to the brink of destruction, not just physically but mentally. But even when our heroes feel close to surrender, there's always one more spark of hope to be found. Though it's supposed to be more of a Batman story, Wonder Woman completely steals the show. This, for me, is one of her greatest stories. However, the Dark Knights: Metal event was so big that they had to release it in FOUR graphic novels. This is the main book, collecting Dark Knights: Metal #1-6, but if you read this book alone, not only will you miss out on 3/4ths of the story, but you will probably feel quite lost. The linear narrative is broken by the graphic novels due to the individual issue release order. My recommendation as someone who read them week by week is to start with DARK DAYS: THE ROAD TO METAL, followed by DARK NIGHTS: METAL: THE RESISTANCE, then DARK KNIGHTS: METAL: DARK KNIGHTS RISING, and to CONCLUDE your reading experience with this volume, the main series title. If that sounds confusing, welcome to comics.
Loved it. Hard to put down.
