I’ll tell anyone who will listen that DC’s Dark Nights: Metal is one of my favorite comic book events of all time, and creators Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo are back for round two in 2020 with Dark Nights: Death Metal.
On today’s Road to DC Death Metal I’ll investigate:
- How did we get here and what comics should you understand prior to the event?
- My theories, predictions, and hopes for Death Metal
- And whether Death Metal can save DC Comics from its current malaise!

The opening issue of the event releases May 13, 2020, and will feature two 3-month chunks of “event issues” throughout 2020, as well as “Metalverse” tie-ins.

Question Dave about Metal Book 6 – Everything is going to hell then Wonder Woman dives into the dark, sees Hawkman laying on his ass, then deep dives into the “anvil” I guess and comes up with Superman and Batmen fully armored in 10th metal, kickin ass and takin names and it’s all over. Did I miss and issue between Diana diving and the three of them fully armored in X metal? WTF? Are we supposed to just take it that the anvil was still hot (kinda) and Diana was able to use the x metal and that was that? It’s over and done? I loved the entire series and the tie in trades all the way until. . . . right there. It seemed like he Snyder ran out of time and quit. What did I miss that makes this work out and I don’t feel like this just stopped in the middle.
