DC Reveals More Metal and Dark Matter including Brimstone and The Terrifics

DC Comics has been knocking it out of the park this San Diego Comic-Con with exciting reveals that all feel like a mix of old and new. At a panel at the convention, the publisher surprised even more with even more news.

From the panel, Publisher Dan Didio said “Dark Days leads to Dark Nights, and Dark Nights leads to Dark Matter.”

Characters and stories from each of the Dark Matter books will be plotted throughout Metal, which Scott Snyder has described as “if Frazetta and Jack Kirby had a baby to a heavy metal soundtrack, Metal is that event. Battle armor, dinosaurs, robots. It’s really meant to be a celebration of comics and is a thank you to you the fans, honestly. We’re going all out.”

During the panel DiDio revealed that, in addition to the titles announced earlier this year at C2E2, DC would be publishing additional titles under the upcoming Dark Matter banner. New artwork for Brimstone and The Terrifics was shown, in addition to key artwork for The Silencer, Sideways, Immortal Men, Damage, and New Challengers.

At the panel DiDio pulled a surprise guest, writer Jeff Lemire, on stage to join the panelists. Lemire will make his return to DC with the title in 2018.
