Death Metal News:
Two upcoming installments of DC’s Dark Nights: Death Metalsaga have both sold out ahead of their on-sale dates, and DC has announced second printings on the way to meet demand for these hotly anticipated issues! More and more readers are jumping into DC’s Metalverse with each issue of this heavy-metal summer-event miniseries!
Dark Nights: Death Metal #3 by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo, in stores August 11, has sold out ahead of on-sale, along with the anthology one-shot Dark Nights: Death Metal Legends of the Dark Knights #1, in stores August 4. These issues continue the unfolding story of DC’s most metal-est event of all time, and also feature early appearances of new antagonist the Robin King.
“He’s definitely one of our darkest creations, but I love him because I want the heroes to go up against something that says ‘Everything you believe people to be, everything you hope we are, we aren’t,'” Snyder told Newsarama in a recent interview. “I want to show that with the Batman Who Laughs and the Robin King.”
“The unabashed energy of Dark Nights: Death Metal #1 is the sort of thing most event books would kill to emulate,” Newsarama said in their review ofSnyder and Capullo’s first issue, while Geek Dad said “this is one of the most unpredictable first issues I can remember, with callbacks to some of the greatest DC events of all time.” AiPT includes that Snyder and Capullo “are going down in comics history as one of the most dynamic, creative teams of all time,” while ComicBook said “they seem to be having an absolute ball creating this crazy world, and you’ll have just as much fun getting lost in it.”
Dark Nights: Death Metal #3arrives in stores August 11 while Dark Nights: Death Metal #3’s second printing will arrive two weeks later in shops August 25 with a recolored version of the original cover by Greg Capullo.
Dark Nights: Death Metal Legends of the Dark Knights #1’s second printing also arrives in shops August 25 with a recolored version of the original cover by Tony S. Daniel, three weeks after Dark Nights: Death Metal Legends of the Dark Knights #1 hits shelves on August 4.
Wonder Woman News
This week, the debut of Eisner award-winning writer Mariko Tamaki (Harley Quinn: Breaking Glass) on Wonder Woman #759 took the comic book world by storm! This breakthrough issue sold out fast, and DC is making sure that anyone that missed getting it the first time around gets another shot, as the book heads back to press for a second printing, arriving at comic book stores Tuesday, August 18.
Tamaki’s compelling narrative and stunning art by Mikel Janin (Batman) delivered a story combining Hollywood blockbuster-level action with sublime moments like meeting new neighbors (moving into a new apartment never looked so good), plus the return of Maxwell Lord!
This second printing features a recolored version of the original cover with spectacular art by Batman/Superman artist David Marquez; the story by Tamaki and Janin, also features colors by Jordie Bellaire and letters by Pat Brosseau.
Wonder Woman #759 received glowing praise from press, with Polygon.com calling it “…a great starting point for the character,” and “…a masterful first issue,” while Comicbook.com lauds the issue as “A Gorgeous New Beginning for Comics Greatest Heroine.”
