Dark Nights: Death Metal The Last Stories of the DC Universe #1 features a remarkable ensemble of characters paired with an equally impressive group of creators who prepare DC’s heroes and readers for one of the most important battles in the history of comics.
We get the Titans, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Green Arrow, Black, Aquaman, The Bat Family and Superman. Everyone who’s anyone in the DC Universe was in Dark Nights: Death Metal The Last Stories of the DC Universe #1.
Like some of the other Dark Nights: Death Metal one-offs, this isn’t necessarily required reading. Scott Snyder has done a great job including everything that’s important from the one-offs in the main line.
But, Dark Nights: Death Metal The Last Stories of the DC Universe #1 is one of those one-offs you want to pick up. With DC Future State ready to start once Snyder’s event concludes, DC is making sure to tie up loose ends and let readers know what comes next is important.
Because of that, every little thing that happens in the pages of Dark Nights: Death Metal seems much more significant than usual.
As some of DC’s major characters put a bow on things in Dark Nights: Death Metal The Last Stories of the DC Universe #1, it feels like these are the last human moments we’ll experience with some of them. All they have left is the battle — which will be the last for more than a few heroes.
If you want to know how DC’s greatest heroes spend their final moments before the biggest battles of their lives, Dark Nights: Death Metal The Last Stories of the DC Universe #1 is mandatory reading.
