Evil Versions of the Dark Knight are Coming to Terrorize Earth

Evil versions of the Dark Knight are coming to terrorize Earth this September, as DC Comics has teased early details on a series of seven one-shot comics that tie into the upcoming Dark Nights: Metal event. Each one-shot story spotlights a different, corrupted version of Batman spawned from the Dark Multiverse to wreak havoc on Earth.

Meet The Red Death, The Murder Machine, The Dawnbreaker, The Drowned, The Merciless, The Devastator and The Batman Who Laughs.

The terror begins on September 20 with Batman: The Red Death #1, by Joshua Williamson (writer) Carmine Di Giandomenico (artist), followed by Batman: The Murder Machine #1, written by Frank Tieri with art by Ricardo Federici on September 27. Writer Sam Humphries and artist Ethan Van Sciver will team up on Batman: The Dawnbreaker #1, on sale October 4, with Dan Abnett and artist Philip Tan collaborating on Batman: The Drowned #1 October 18. The month concludes with Peter J. Tomasi and Francis Manapul on Batman: The Merciless #1, on sale October 25.

November features two additional one-shot titles, Batman: The Devastator #1 (on sale November 1) and The Batman Who Laughs #1 (on sale November 15).

The presence of these malevolent characters infects some of DC’s deadliest Super-Villains, who are ready to take down Gotham City once and for all. But rest assured, DC’s bravest heroes aren’t rolling over for anybody and are ready to fight for the city’s very soul in “Gotham Resistance,” a series of crossover stories beginning with Teen Titans #12 written by Benjamin Percy with art by Mirka Andolfo (on sale September 13), Nightwing #29 by Tim Seeley and Paul Pelletier (on sale September 20) and Suicide Squad #26 by Rob Williams and Stjepan Sejic (on sale September 27).

Review: Alien vs Predator: Life and Death #4

29812

On LV-223, it’s the last stand for the Colonial Marines—and their Predator allies—against an overwhelming army of Alien warriors determined to protect their new queen. Only one thing can stop them . . . and it’s the last thing anybody wants!

Alien vs Predator: Life and Death #4 gives us an explosive climax that ends this part of the massive “Life and Death” story arc. The cover slightly spoils things a little, but not all of it. Now that the aliens and predators have fled, will the remaining humans survive the wait for rescue, or will they die? With only one issue remaining, I can’t wait to see what happens at the end as writer Dan Abnett has delivered with this series.

Like previous issues, the art by Brian Thies is polished and desolate in ways. Thies’ art feels like it focuses on more Chris’s actions including some interesting speeches about the power of love. I’m curious to see how the art will amplify the ending of the story arc.
