The Dark Multiverse Invades DC Collectibles with Dark Batman Dark Nights: Metal Statues

Straight from the pages of the bestselling Dark Nights: Metal comics series comes an all-new line of 7” statues from DC Collectibles. These awesomely dark Batman statues honor Greg Capullo’s art from the comic book in stunning detail and are perfect additions to any Metal fan’s collection.

Launching in May 2019, the line will recreate eight characters from the series in total, including the fearsome Batman Who Laughs as a deluxe statue. You can also look for a Batman with baby Darkseid statue, as well as the six other Dark Multiverse Batmen: The Red Death, The Drowned, The Dawnbreaker, The Murder Machine, The Merciless, and The Devastator.

Fans looking to build a perfect—and thoroughly metal—display should note that all of the statues feature uniquely shaped bases that are designed to be configured together in a variety of ways. It’s a DC Collectibles first! Even more, some of the pieces also feature interchangeable parts and articulation, another aspect which helps to set these statues apart from the rest.

Dark Nights: Metal Batman: The Dawnbreaker will be the first statue out of the gate in May 2019 and will be available for purchase at an MSRP of $85.00 . Intricately sculpted by Adrienne Smith, The Dawnbreaker features an interchangeable hand, allowing you to switch between his normal appearance and one where he’s forming a construct.

With the success of the comics series and the number of metalhead comic fans out there, these statues are likely to move pretty quick. Don’t miss your chance to grab them as they roll out throughout the upcoming year for yourself or any Dark Nights: Metal fan in your life.

Deftones’ Chino Moreno Unveils “Brief Exchange,” a Solo Track in Celebration of Dark Nights: Metal

Chino Moreno from Deftones has released a solo track entitled “Brief Exchange,” inspired by DC Entertainment’s new graphic novel Dark Nights: Metal: Deluxe Edition available now in comic book shops, bookstores and digitally on Tuesday, June 12. This also marks Moreno’s first collaboration with DC.

This deluxe hardcover collects issues #1-6 of the Dark Nights: Metal monthly series and is written and drawn by the best-selling creative team of writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo. Batman has uncovered an ancient and evil mystery… One that could destroy the very fabric of the DC Universe! A Dark Multiverse has been revealed, full of devastating threats and vile creatures that have been loosed upon the DCU, with only The World’s Greatest Super-Heroes rising to the challenge of defending it!

Produced by Grammy Award-winning icon Mike Elizondo and film composer and former Marilyn Manson guitarist Tyler Bates, “Brief Exchange” spotlights Moreno.

“Brief Exchange” features Bates on guitar, Elizondo on bass and Gil Sharone from Dillinger Escape Plan, Puscifer behind the drum kit. Its dark lyrics remain befitting of the graphic novel’s themes. “Brief Exchange” showcases yet another facet of one of rock music’s most prolific forces.

This release marks the 2nd in this series of tracks inspired by DC Comics’ new graphic novel, beginning with “Red Death” by Brann Dailor—co-vocalist, drummer, and co-founder of Grammy Award-winning heavy rock juggernaut  Mastodon. “Red Death” is available now.

Review: Dark Nights: Metal #6

All roads lead…to darkness. In the devastating and epic conclusion to DC’s cataclysmic event series, heroes from across the universe make their final charge into the unknown to battle the forces of the Dark Multiverse! Space and time, dreams and nightmares, all will collide – and what is left at the end will leave the DC Universe irrevocably changed!

This is it, the end of Dark Nights: Metal and the big question is, can writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo stick the landing? Dark Nights: Metal #6 is absolutely entertaining and it has that last act moments for this type of event that you’d expect. The moments you need to turn your brain off and just enjoy. It’s the final act of the big budget blockbuster and it’s really entertaining.

Dark Nights: Metal is really exemplified by this issue in that it both mixes the “dark” and the “hope” of the DC Universe. I said it in my review of the first issue in that it feels like a solid bridge between the “grittiness” of the New 52 and the “optimism” of Rebirth.

It’s difficult to fully review the issue in that I don’t want to spoil the fun but it’s over the top. But, where the issue stumbles, only slightly, is that it’s clearly a chapter in a bigger story and suffers slightly in that its epilogue sets up what’s next, Justice League: No Surrender, the next event. It’s a tactic that a certain other publisher used a lot with their events and it got old, quick. But, what’s teased will make long time fans excited as it touches upon a lot of DC history continuing to blend the old with the new.

Now, I said the issues is over the top and that’s partially due to Capullo’s art. Batman rides a Joker dragon! Capullo is joined by Jonathan Glapion on ink and FCO Plascencia on color and it all comes together for an epic conclusion. Visually, Capullo nails it with so much packed into every page. My only knock is his Clark and Bruce look a little too alike but I’ve noticed that with a few DC artists lately. But, when it comes to staring at panels and spreads at the utter insanity, this comic delivers and then some. Snyder and Capullo are a dream team of creators and it’s clear with this entire event series the two are in sync.

On it’s own, it’s hard to judge this individual comic but as a conclusion for the event, it’s very satisfying and then some. I found myself saying “hells yes” multiple times and smiling as the “epic” nature of it all crescendoed. There’s a solid conclusion that makes sense and also feels like it sets up a lot to come which has me, and hopefully comic readers, excited. Dark Nights: Metal has been a crazy ride and delivered what was promised, a rocking “metal” comic event.
