Dark Nights: Metal #1, Annotated, From Gotham's Volcano to Sandman


After months of speculation and two oversized issues' worth of buildup, Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo's Dark Nights: Metal is finally here. Promising ear-bleeding action and teeth-rattling twists, Metal flips the script on DC's cosmology with an invasion from the Dark Multiverse.

We covered eight(ish) pages' worth of this issue back in July, and while our predictions weren't quite accurate, we still feel pretty good about ourselves. Accordingly, we'll be referring back to that post (as well as our analyses of Dark Days: The Forge and Dark Days: The Casting) from time to time. Dark Nights: Metal issue 1 was written by Scott Snyder, pencilled by Greg Capullo, inked by Jonathan Glapion, colored by FCO Plascencia, and lettered by Steve Wands. Eddie Berganza and Rebecca Taylor edited the issue, with Dave Wielgosz as associate editor.

Now, grab your copy of Metal's first issue, settle in, and follow along!
