Formats & editions


The Nightmare Batmen have descended to Earth from the events of DARK NIGHTS: METAL. Against an army of Dark Knights, can members of the Justice League, Teen Titans and Suicide Squad come together to form a resistance to stop them?

The Justice League has scattered around the world to find the only artifacts that can fight back against the invasion of the Dark Multiverse. The League thinks they know how to take back their world, but they are not prepared for who is standing in their way: the Seven Dark Knights of the Dark Multiverse. All the brilliance of Batman, but combinedwith the powers of the Flash, Aquaman, Cyborg and more... and none of the morals.

The shocking events of METAL have transformed Gotham City into a mosaic of fantastical realms full of monsters, magic and doom An SOS from Dick Grayson sends Robin back to Gotham to find a number of hometown heroes (and anti-heroes) including Batgirl, Harley Quinn, Killer Croc, Black Canary and Green Arrow all trapped in a labyrinth of madness and death! Meanwhile, the Justice League are trapped in pocket worlds with their evil Batmen counterparts! Will the heroes be able to escape in time to fight against the villainous mastermind Barbatos?

Praise for Dark Nights Metal The Resistance

“"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 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”
