Dark Days: Metal Begins with Dark Days: The Forge. Are You Ready to Rock with a First Look?!

DC Comics is bringing you that sweet, sweet sound as Metal kicks off with two ground-shaking preludes—starting with Dark Days: The Forge in June and continuing with Dark Days: The Casting in July.  The New York Times best-selling writers Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV collaborate with iconic artists Andy Kubert, Jim Lee, and John Romita Jr. to bring these stories to life— laying the foundation for whats to come and showing you the first look into Metal and Dark Matter this year.

Dark Days: The Forge begins with a discovery, and a secret. Aquaman, The Flash and more of DC’s pantheon of heroes suspect Batman of hiding a dark secret that could threaten the very existence of the Multiverse! What has he discovered? And how does this connect to the origins of one of DC’s most legendary heroes?

Spearheaded by Snyder, Metal and it’s preludes will expand the DCU as we know it— revealing that the world of our favorite DC characters still has many areas left uncharted. Wonder Woman, Superman, Batman and the rest of the Justice League think they’ve been to every corner of the Multiverse—but a looming threat is coming from a place they never knew existed. Welcome to a crazy, melt-your-face, hard-rock space adventure like you’ve never seen before.

Welcome to the Dark Multiverse.

Snyder in the announcement says that Dark Days posits a mystery that traces all the way back to when he started on Batman. This is something that’s been hinted at over the years with Easter eggs and clues. The event ultimately leads to huge revelations about the past, present and future of the cosmology of DC. The two issues are a prelude to an event that’s been developing for years.

Visually powering this event is a master class of artists, including Kubert, Lee and Romita Jr., who will drive DC’s initiative to bring artists to the forefront of the storytelling process. Beginning with Dark Days, these writers and artists will collaborate to develop new ideas and characters, that further enriches the DC Universe.

DC has said to expect more information about the comic event at upcoming conventions like WonderCon, Fan Expo Dallas and C2E2 over the coming months.
