Legends of the Dark Knight Returns in a Brand New Series

Debuting in 1989, Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight put Batman in the hands of some of the most talented writers and artists in comics, such as Denny O’Neil, Grant Morrison, Ed Hannigan, Mike W. Barr, Doug Moench, José Luis Garcia-López, Klaus Janson, and others. Their efforts yielded unforgettable story arcs for comic book fans, such as “Shaman,” “Prey,” which redefined the evil and twisted Dr. Hugo Strange, “Gothic,” and “Venom,” the story that introduced the dangerous super steroid to a Santa Prisca prison inmate who would later be known as Bane.

On April 2, this influential anthology returns as a new DC Digital First series, Legends of the Dark Knight. Stories will be released digitally as 10-page weekly “chapters,” with two digital chapters making one print issue; issue #1 arrives in comic book stores on May 18Legends of the Dark Knight will serve as a place for both well-known and up-and-coming creative talent to tell new, evergreen stories, appealing to a wide variety of fans, all based on one of the most beloved and enduring characters in popular culture.

Legends of the Dark Knight kicks off with a six-part weekly/three-issue monthly tale, written and illustrated by Darick Robertson, with colors by Diego Rodriguez and letters by Simon Bowland. In “Bad Night, Good Knight,” a new player has arrived on the scene in Gotham City and is selling deadly chemicals to the worst villains in town: Mr. Freeze, the Penguin, and even The Joker! It’s up to Batman to stop the villains, track down the supplier, and save Gotham City from not only his most vicious foes, but this new mystery villain.

Future stories will showcase the talents of writers Stephanie Phillips, Becky Cloonan, Brandon Thomas, Matthew Rosenberg, Brandon Easton, Che Grayson, and comics writing newcomer Yedoye Travis.

Contributing artists include Cian Tormey, Giannis Milonogiannis, Karl Mostert, Max Dunbar, Dike Ruan, Belén Ortega, and Nina Vakueva.

The series debut issue features a dynamic cover by Robertson, with a card stock variant cover by David Marquez, 1:25 ratio variant cover by Riccardo Federici, and a special “teams” variant cover by Francesco Francavilla available to retailers ordering more than 250 copies. At the series digital launch on March 28, each digital chapter sells for $.99 on all participating digital platforms. Each 32-page monthly issue sells for $3.99, with the card stock variant priced at $4.99.

Review: Tales From the Dark Multiverse: Dark Nights Metal #1

Tales From the Dark Multiverse: Dark Nights Metal #1

And with that, it seems like Tales From the Dark Multiverse has come to an end. For a while now, DC Comics has been delivering entertaining one-shots. Tales from the Dark Multiverse has given us “dark” takes on classic events of the DC Universe. The comics generally entertained with some stronger than others. The concept as a whole was a fun idea that delivered a bit of “what if?” with an Elseworlds feel. Tales From the Dark Multiverse: Dark Nights Metal #1 seems to wrap up the concept with a Dark Multiverse version of Dark Nights: Metal.

The original Dark Nights: Metal was written by Scott Snyder. Snyder has a story credit along with writers Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing. Tales From the Dark Multiverse has been presented and framed by Tempus Fungnaut. Fugnaut’s a being whose role is search “the dark for a single spark of light”. Through the stories presented there has been lots of death and destruction and little hope. This issue attempts to deliver that as a group of heroes make a stand against Barbatos and his twisted “dragons”.

What’s interesting is Kelly and Lanzing deliver a take on Snyder’s concepts that’s a little bit easier to understand. Though the story is rather compressed, it does a good explanation of the villain Barbatos’ creation and the general events of the real Dark Nights: Metal.

Tales From the Dark Multiverse: Dark Nights Metal #1 is the final stand against Barbatos with the final Justice League battling it out. Who remains is interesting and while there are hints at how they’ve remained the comic could have been helped by being expanded. Like so many of the Tales From the Dark Multiverse, the issue is worthy of being a miniseries or even more expanded issue or graphic novel. The comic is a bit too compressed in that way. Some great concepts that I’d love to see more of.

The comic also does a lot more on the “metal” concept. Snyder and the team of creators he’s worked with have often talked about the musical aspects of their two events. The events take on a “metal” attitude but neither has really played heavily on that concept. Here, it’s leaned into heavily with one weapon being a guitar reminiscent of guitar blasters of the past. Within one character we get more of the “metal” attitude than the whole of both of the real events this riffs off of.

The art by Karl Mostert is interesting. Mostert is joined by Trevor Scott and Norm Rapmund on ink, Romulo Fajardo, Jr. on color, and Andworld Design on lettering. Some of the design reminded me of the video game Brutal Legend but overall, there’s some solid concepts in characters and the world. There’s a death and destruction of it all without it being overly dark and depressed. The opening of the comic features a great use of panels and a character running from one to another. It helps speed along the story and really nails home what’s going on. The design of the comic overall has a very “rock and roll” feel about it while still delivering bright colors evoking a little bit of 70s van art in a good way.

Tales From the Dark Multiverse: Dark Nights Metal #1’s ending would lead me to believe this series of one-shots is done which is a shame. It provided an interesting outlet for creators to deliver something different, infusing a darker/horror/twisted take on classic DC stories. Who knows what lies on the other side of Dark Nights: Death Metal but here’s hoping it leaves space to explore more of the idea and let us see the adventures of The Final Knight.
