I was already excited for Dark Nights: Death Metal, the upcoming series spinning out of Batman: Last Knight on Earth from writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo. DC Comics just sweetened the pot by announcing that the series will now run seven issues and it will feature a few tie-ins.

After Dark Nights: Death Metal #3 on August 11th, we'll get Dark Nights: Death Metal Guidebook on August 18th, featuring stories by Scott Snyder, James Tynion IV, Joshua Williamson, Becky Cloonan, Vita Ayala, Chip Zdarsky, Christopher Priest, Doug Mahnke, Dan Panosian, Eduardo Risso, and Khary Randolph, all wrapped in a cover by Yasmine Putri. The stories in this one-shot showcase the new factions of Earth and dig into the mystery of what happened to the Justice League after their battle with Perpetua.

As Wonder Woman, Superman, Batman, and other heroes fight to survive in the strange new landscape of an Earth turned upside down and shrouded in a realm of darkness, one cloaked figure has been observing from the sidelines, creating a guidebook to this new world and its evil leaders. Find out how Wonder Woman became the queen of Hell! Discover how Batman finds the Black Lantern ring! And see what happens when Harley Quinn takes charge of the Wasteland, finding love in the process! All this and more in this jam-packed issue exploring the new world order.

Then, the following week we'll get Dark Nights: Death Metal Legends of the Dark Knights #1. This one-shot features stories from the Dark Multiverse from Scott Snyder, James Tynion IV, Joshua Williamson, Peter J. Tomasi, Warren Ellis, Garth Ennis, Daniel Warren Johnson, Frank Tieri, Tony S. Daniel, Jim Cheung, Joëlle Jones, Riley Rossmo, and Francesco Francavilla and a cover by Tony S. Daniel.

In this collection of short tales where demons dwell and reality is overrun by monstrous versions of the Dark Knight, learn the terrifying secrets of the new Bats Out of Hell and other creatures of the night like Robin King, whose origin is unimaginable! Plus, read about the secret buried beneath Castle Bat, the sentient Batmobile, and…how did Batman turn into a killer robot dinosaur?

This book has already sold me because Warren Ellis is writing a story about a Batman dinosaur. Shut up and take my money! August is going to be metal as Hell.
