DC Entertainment has released a new look at Dark Days: The Forge Dark Days: The Forge #1, from artists John Romita Jr., Jim Lee, and Andy Kubert, and the first look inside Dark Days: The Casting from the same team.
Both issues are written by Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV.
Dark Days: The Forge will hit stores on June 15, with Dark Days: The Casting following in July. The stories will set up a new line of titles from DC, featuring new characters and wildly reimagined takes on familiar names.
The New York Times best-selling writers Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV collaborate with Kubert, Lee, and Robita to bring these stories to life, laying the foundation for whats to come with Metal and Dark Matter later this year.
One notable thing about these pages: It appears as if Lady Blackhawk, not seen in some time (since Flashpoint?), appears in the final panel fo the page that features Aquaman.
You can check out the official solicitation text below, and the preview pages in the attached image gallery. Final order cutoff for Dark Days: The Forge #1 is Monday.
Dark Days: The Forge begins with a discovery, and a secret. Aquaman, The Flash and more of DC's pantheon of heroes suspect Batman of hiding a dark secret that could threaten the very existence of the Multiverse! What has he discovered? And how does this connect to the origins of one of DC's most legendary heroes?
Dark Days: The Casting sees The Joker's surprise attack threaten to lay waste to all of Batman's carefully laid plans. Will the Dark Knight be able to regain the trust of his closest allies, Green Lantern and Duke, and prevent the forces of darkness from consuming the DC Universe?! Will Hawkman's warning stop our heroes from peering into the abyss?

Spearheaded by Snyder, METAL and it's preludes will expand the DCU as we know it— revealing that the world of our favorite DC characters still has many areas left uncharted.

Welcome to a crazy, melt-your-face, hard-rock space adventure like you've never seen before.
Welcome to the Dark Multiverse.
