What’s this? There’s an entire new group of Metal Men, except they’re not metal…or men…but…animals?!

All this, plus the new Metal Men face the Missile Men in their first epic battle since their conception.
After Platinum finds out that she is based on a real woman Magnus used to know in college, she sneaks away to search for her human counterpart…and learns the twisted reason for why she “loves” Magnus so much.

It’s new comic book day tomorrow! What’s everyone excited for? What do you plan on getting? Sound off in the comments below! While you think about that, here’s some comic news and reviews from around the web.
Dan Didio is reportedly out as Co-Publisher of DC. He has served in the role along with Jim Lee since 2010. He was previously a VP executive editor for six years and before that VP editorial.
DC’s success has been mixed and controversial under Didio. DC has consistently held the #2 spot when it comes to reported sales once in a while eclipsing fellow publisher Marvel
There has been no official word yet about the shakeup but there’s surely more to come and we’ve asked DC for comment and will update the story if any official statement is made. ComicsPRO is currently underway. Publishers address stores about their upcoming plans and this will have to be addressed.
Update: We have heard from sources that Didio is indeed out from DC and that it’s “business as usual” for the publisher.
