Tales From the Dark Multiverse Takes Classic Moments Down a Dark Twisted Path

DC has announced today plans to put a twisted and terrifying spin on some of the biggest, most game-changing events in its publishing history with a series of prestige format one-shots called Tales From the Dark Multiverse. Beginning in October, DC’s most talented artists and writers will take fan-favorite events from the DC Universe down a dark and twisted path.

TALES FROM THE DARK MULTIVERSE: BATMAN: KNIGHTFALL #1

Co-written by Scott Snyder (DARK NIGHTS: METAL, JUSTICE LEAGUE, THE BATMAN WHO LAUGHS) and Kyle Higgins (DEATHSTROKE, BATMAN ETERNAL, NIGHTWING: THE NEW ORDER), with art by Javier Fernandez (JUSTICE LEAGUE) and a cover by Lee Weeks (BATMAN), this one-shot takes place in a Gotham City 30 years after a broken Bruce Wayne failed to take back the mantle of the Bat. In his place arose Jean-Paul Valley, also known as Saint Batman. Under his iron rule, Saint Batman has turned Gotham into the city of his dreams – killing has become commonplace and criminals live in constant fear—all in the name of justice.

But just when all seems lost, a new hope for Gotham rises: The Son of Bane.

TALES FROM THE DARK MULTIVERSE: THE DEATH OF SUPERMAN #1

The Dark Multiverse takes on the highest-selling comic book event of all time, courtesy of writer Jeff Loveness (Rick and Morty, DC’S NUCLEAR WINTER SPECIAL, DC’S MYSTERIES OF LOVE IN SPACE), with art by Brad Walker (DETECTIVE COMICS) and Andrew Hennessy (SINESTRO, THE DEMON: HELL IS EARTH, TITANS), with a cover by Lee Weeks.

In a broken world much like our own, Lois Lane, twisted by rage and grief over the Man of Steel’s death, becomes the Eradicator, taking revenge on those who let Superman die and the corrupt world he could never defeat. Now, with the power of a god, she’s going to end the “never-ending” battle by any means necessary, halting the Reign of the Supermen before it even begins.

These are the first of several titles in this new line; additional one-shots will focus on other events such as Infinite Crisis, Blackest Night, New Teen Titans: The Judas Contract, and more. Each of these prestige format one-shots is 48 pages long at a price of $5.99.

Tales From the Dark Multiverse: Batman: Knightfall #1 will be available at comics shops and participating digital retailers on Wednesday, October 16. Tales From the Dark Multiverse: The Death of Superman #1 arrives at comic book shops and digital retailers two weeks later, Wednesday, October 30.

Timed to the release of each Tales From the Dark Multiverse title, fans can also purchase a one-dollar reprint of the original comic each story is based on, Batman #497 (October 16) and Superman #75 (October 30).

Graphic Re-Reading Secret Six: 1st Rate Comics about Last Rate Supervillains

“The Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead of the DCU”– John Arminio.

Secret_Six_Vol_3_36

Secret Six is easily one of the 5 best cape comics of the 21st century. Staring a diverse team of D-List supervillians, the series was created by Gail Simone working with artists including Nicola Scott, Jim Calafiore, and Brad Walker.

The true heir to the legendary 1980s’ Suicide Squad, this comic lovingly depicts mercenaries fucking up their contracts, backstabbing each other, then coming back together to tell the world to go to hell.

I’m joined by comics retailer and critic John Arminio for a deep dive into this brilliantly dark, funny and groundbreaking early 00s series.

Discussed:

  • Why D-List characters are so much fun
  • Scandal Savage Is Living the Lesbian Dream
  • Cigarettes, pools of blood and butts of all genders
  • Godbless you Nicola Scott for making Catman a sex symbol
  • Is this Bane?
  • Yes, you should watch Doom Patrol (we covered the 1st two Doom Patrol episodes here )
