DC Comics reveals ‘Dark Knights of Steel’ limited series

‘Dark Knights of Steel’ limited series will feature swords, sorcery, and superheroes.

Announced exclusively by EW, Tom Taylor and Yasmine Putri are joining forces for a 12-issue series called Dark Knights of Steel. Promising swords, sorcery, and superheroes, the series is set apart from the main DC universe continuity similar to Taylor’s much-beloved series DCeased. No details have been given on a release date, but likely it’ll launch some time in November or December.

So what’s it about?

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

Dark Knights of Steel takes place in a new DC medieval fantasy world where Batman isn’t even the only familiar resident. This world will be changed when a spaceship crash-lands from a doomed planet. But what seems like the end of the world for many is only the beginning of this story. So yes, Superman and Wonder Woman will also be a part of this, along with Harley Quinn, Black Lightning, and more.

“I’ve spent the last two years creating a new epic fantasy universe for DC Comics, and Dark Knights of Steel is an absolute dream come true,” Taylor told EW in a statement. “Despite being the writer of the DC horror series, DCeased, I’m actually a huge a fantasy fan. Combining two of my favorite things, DC superheroes and high fantasy, is my absolute happy place. I grew up reading Lord of the Rings alongside Superman. Terry Pratchett alongside Garth Ennis. Robin Hobb and Mark Waid. Dragonlance and Justice League. Now I get to bring all this together with the incredible Yasmine Putri, in the biggest story I could imagine. A tale of war and love, of despair and hope, of betrayal and improbable alliances forged in battle.”
