Dark Knights: Metal

Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo, and Jonathan Glapion


The art is great, and the scope is ambitious, but the story feels really familiar. The Dark Multiverse and World Forge concepts are interesting, but the story follows the same beats as Final Crisis: a dark god takes over Earth and begins dragging it downward into an unending hell while a handful of heroes mounts a desperate resistance in a conquered world where they have to fight twisted versions of their allies.

And by the end of the book, I feel like it was less about the story itself than about the pieces it set up for the next round of new comics launches.
