Spearheaded by Snyder, these new stories will reveal the dark underbelly of the DC Universe. The mysteries of The Forge and The Casting will hit shelves on June 14 and July 12, respectively, and break new ground in DC’s publishing line.

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.
