So Metal:
In the wake of the rocking events of Dark Nights: Metal, Bruce Wayne must turn around and face the nightmares which spawned from the blackness of the Dark Multiverse. Although he knows that the monsters defeated each other in the fall of Challengers Mountain, Batman still has his doubts.  What he finds out is that The Batman Who Laughs survived his battle with The Joker at the close of Metal. Furthermore, he is plotting to unleash his sinister plan across the Multiverse.  When Gotham’s Dark Knight discovers the only way to stop this psycho is to defeat him for good – by killing him – he will have to consider breaking the very rule that defines his life. Yet, this very same rule is the reason the Batman Who Laughs was allowed to come into existence! You can’t miss the epic story unfold in Scott Snyder and Jock’s Batman Who Laughs #1! And for our friends in the New York City area, join us for our final signing of the year when Scott Snyder drops by Midtown Comics Downtown on Thursday, December 13th!





Wrestling With Demons:
Batman descends into the madness of Gotham’s decadent underbelly with a tour guide as dark as the city; Constantine. The Dark Knight must face some of his demons, and he’s got the right company for the job.  Joined by Etrigan The Demon, he’ll get all the help he needs. But when you invite demons into your story, you can’t leave out the likes of Deadman, Spectre, and the Enchantress! It’s a haunting cast in this tale brought to you by the star team of Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo in Batman Damned #2!
