Dark Nights: Metal feels like a blockbuster movie unraveling before our eyes. There's no time to breathe, because action never stops, even for a moment, and every chapter so far tried to squeeze as much action into its limited number of pages as possible. The event grows - from regular series it's going to expand into several spin-offs and one-off issues. Hopefully the upcoming Guidebook will expl more

I enjoyed the first two stories of this book, however there is undeniably a great deal of issues with this book. For starters, what is the purpose of this book? Because beyond the first two stories, which are about the Darkest Knight and Robin King respectively, there is no cohesion or purpose to the book. The rest of the stories featured are about two to three pages of nonsense. They do not add m more

Metal is the most diverse family of musical genres out there. There are acts that take themselves (too) seriously, like Mayhem, and ones that do the exact opposite, like Alestorm. If Dark Knights: Death Metal #2 was a band, it'd be somewhere in between, leaning towards self aware comedy rather than thick skulled (sic!) seriousness. So basically Mastodon.

I'll leave a reality-check for you buddy. There won't be any twists in Joker War that a 5-year old can't see.

Well this one had a good chunk of twists that I was half-expecting, but not the way I expected it to happen. If this is the precedent we will be seeing from Tynion, then Joker War is something I will be looking forward too.

This issue of batman features the penultimate chapter of the 'Dark Designs' storyline and it was quite an enjoyable issue. Firstly, I read this issue twice to fully appreciate the scale and nuance that Tynion brings to his Batman story, and there is plenty.

Thinking about what the hell you've just read, where it came from and where it leads, what does all the symbolism mean and what it foreshadows.
