Dark Nights Metal The Resistance



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 alternate, twisted versions of Batman--the Seven Dark Knights of the Dark Multiverse--are hunting the Justice League as the Leaguers attempt to locate artifacts that might protect Earth. One by one, Flash and Steel, Wonder Woman and Doctor Fate, Green Lantern and Mister Terrific, Aquaman and Deathstroke must face the Nightmare Batmen.

Elsewhere, Dick Grayson issues an S.O.S., summoning Robin, Batgirl, Harley Quinn, Killer Croc, Black Canary and Green Arrow to prevent the transformation and terraforming of Gotham City into a twisted mosaic of monsters, magic and doom. When they are trapped in a Riddler-designed maze, all hope may be lost.

And where is Batman during all this? He's trapped in his own private nightmare, reliving portions of his life while confronting Barbatos, the leader of the evil Batmen and the demon that has haunted his dreams.

These direct tie-ins to the Dark Nights: Metal event are created by many of the architects of the modern DC Universe--including writers Scott Snyder, Joshua Williamson, Robert Venditti, Jeff Lemire, Benjamin Percy, Tim Seeley and Rob Williams, and artists Howard Porter, Liam Sharp, Ethan Van Sciver, Tyler Kirkham, Mikel Janín, Bryan Hitch, Kevin Nowlan, Mirka Andolfo, Paul Pelletier, Juan Ferreyra, Stjepan Sejic, Doug Mahnke, Yanick Paquette and Jorge Jimenez.

Dark Nights: Metal: The Resistance Collects "Gotham Resistance" (Teen Titans #12, Nightwing #29, Suicide Squad #26, Green Arrow #32) and "Bats Out Of Hell" (The Flash #33, Justice League #32-33, Hal Jordan and The Green Lantern Corps #32), plus Batman Lost #1 and Hawkman Found #1.

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
