DC has provided ComicBook.com with a preview of Dark Nights: Metal #1 from writers Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV, with art by Greg Capullo.
The issue is due in stores on August 16, and has a final order cutoff date of Monday, so if you want to be sure you get a copy, reach out to your retailer soon.
In the pages, you can see a number of DC properties that have had little or no presence in the post-Flashpoint DC Universe, including the Metal Men, Challengers of the Unknown, and the Will Payton Starman from the '80s.
You can check out the official synopsis for the issue below, and the preview pages in the attached gallery.
“I’ve been planning METAL for as long as I’ve been writing Batman, but I want METAL to be built upon the stories happening now in Rebirth. Most of all we want to create new material that feels really modern and different. And above all, it’s going to be fun. Even with terror and nightmares, it won’t be grim. DARK NIGHTS: METAL will be celebratory, huge and crazy.” — SCOTT SNYDER
“I’m looking forward to rock’n and roll’n together again. Fans have been loud and clear; they want more from us. We’re primed and ready to blow it up.” — GREG CAPULLO
