The Dark Multiverse is coming, and nothing will ever be the same! Now in paperback, one of the biggest events in DC history is here in the shocking, action-packed epic Dark Nights: Metal from critically acclaimed author Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo, reuniting after their smash-hit Batman series.

Beyond our universe, there is the Multiverse ... and beneath the Multiverse is a nightmare realm where every fear that has ever been felt on our Earth becomes reality. Now an evil force as old as time wants to drag us down into the shadows, into the realm of never-ending terror.

But when the door between worlds opens, it's not just any nightmares that come spilling out. They call themselves the Dark Knights. Each one is a twisted version of Batman from a world where one of his worst fears has come true.

With the invasion underway and Batman trapped in the Dark Multiverse, the Justice League must undergo an impossible quest to find the mysterious metals capable of repelling the Dark Knights and their master, the fearsome Barbatos. If they fail, everything they've ever known will be plunged into eternal darkness. But the true horror is... what if they're already too late?

Collects the best-selling Dark Nights: Metal #1-6, and now with bonus issues, Dark Knights Rising: The Wild Hunt #1 and Batman Lost #1.

"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
