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).

Review: Judas #2

Judas comes face-to-face with Satan, and the Great Adversary begins to win him over.

The second issue of Judas is here and writer Jeff Loveness and artist Jakub Rebelka take us through the afterlife delivering lots of philosophical things to muse on about fate, destiny, predestination, and how that all applies to religion.

What are Judas’ and Jesus’ role in the bigger picture? That’s what this issue debates as Judas is confronted by Satan. Satan takes him through the history of the Bible explaining that everyone in the many stories needs a villain and Judas is Jesus’. That’s his role and it stinks. Every villain has a role to play and that includes Satan. We’re taken through the major stories and it’s provides an interesting perspective of the Bible and its various parables.

Rebelka’s art is fascinating blending a religious aspect of it all with a tinge of horror as well. The depiction of the various well known characters is interesting and Satan in particular is a new take and design I haven’t seen before. It feels like Hellraiser run visually through the Church.

The issue is a solid one that ups the amount of stuff to think about. By the end, you may be rethinking the Bible and the various villains within. Judas has turned into a hell of a thinker and a fascinating comic to think about what it has to say not just about religion but our role in the world. Judas #2 leaves you with a lot to ruminate on by the end.
