DC Comics has released a checklist for Dark Nights: Metal, including tie-ins with ongoing titles such as Suicide Squad, The Flash, Justice League, Teen Titans, and Nightwing to name a few.
The Metal checklist also includes two new titles, Batman Lost #1 on November 8, and Hawkman Found #1 on December 20.
While Metal is a Batman story, it will also use the other stories Snyder and Capullo have created to delve deep into the whole DC Universe and explore several alternate paths and nightmarish visions of things that could have been. This is what Scott Snyder had to say:
“I’ve been planning ‘Metal’ for as long as I’ve been writing ‘Batman,’ but this is bigger than ‘Batman.’ Greg and I started dropping clues during ‘Court of Owls,’ we continued through our Joker stories and we placed our biggest hints in the run that culminated with ‘Batman’ #50. And now we’re back to tell a story that breaks everything apart. This will be the definitive project of our careers. ‘Metal’ takes us in an entirely new direction. Greg and I will dig beneath the surface of all the stories we’ve told to find a place of terror and twisted nightmares.”
The Metal series will launch on August 16, but the event series will skip November.
