Praise for Dark Nights: Metal

“Where nightmares and reality collide.”—Washington Post

“A celebration of the wackiest, craziest, most outright fun elements of the DC Universe.”—Entertainment Weekly

“Very aptly named, packed as it is with both real steel and rock ’n roll. The series was forged with the spirit of the Jack Kirby, the original master of crafting a story full of mind-blowing ideas.”—SyFy Wire

“Big, bananas, crazy fun.”—Nerdist

“A big, crazy story—a story that feels like going to a huge rock concert.”—Polygon

“An awesome blend of bombastic action and vast cosmic conspiracies.”—IGN

“This comics team [of Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo] is the real dynamic duo…definitely enjoyable, even to the casual comic fan. You can follow the story well enough, but this team is also packing in years and years of Batman backstory.”—Mashable
