Dark Nights: Death Metal is finally coming next week as Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo prepare to unleash the next epic tale from the DC Universe. The seven-issue mini-series will run for most of the rest of the year, but the fun doesn't end there. DC Comics already announced a couple of tie-ins coming in August with Dark Nights: Death Metal Legends of the Dark Knights and Dark Nights: Death Metal Guidebook. September will see the release of three more one-shots tying into this fascinating and terrifying world.

Dark Nights: Death Metal – Trinity Crisis #1 from writer Scott Snyder and artist Francis Manapul is coming on September 8th, 2020.

With Superman freed from his New Apokolips prison, the classic Trinity lineup is back together and ready to rock their next gig. Wonder Woman, Batman, and Superman amp up their power to launch an assault on Castle Bat, and that’s just the warm-up act! Three walking nightmares are hidden deep inside the fortress—but these Dark Multiverse versions of the Anti-Monitor, Superboy Prime, and Darkseid hold the key to humanity's survival. The Justice League have to face down their old nemeses, but will round two be the end for our heroes?

Later that month, we're getting Dark Nights: Death Metal - Speed Metal #1 from writer Joshua Williamson and artists Eddy Barrows and Eber Ferreira. This features a cover by Howard Porter and is set to arrive on September 22nd, 2020.

It’s the drag race from hell! Taking place after the events of Dark Nights: Death Metal #3, the Darkest Knight is after Wally West and his Dr. Manhattan powers. Thankfully, Wally has back-up in the form of Barry Allen, Jay Garrick, and Wallace West! It’s a knockdown, drag-out race through the Wastelands as the Flash Family tries to stay steps ahead of the Darkest Knight and his Lightning Knights!

Finally, Dark Nights: Death Metal – Multiverse's End #1 from writer James Tynion IV and artist Juan Gedeon is coming on September 29th, 2020 with a cover by Michael Golden.

Perpetua, mother of all existence, has culled all life and creation in the Multiverse, condensing all beings to one planet: Earth Prime. In her quest for power and dominance, she rules absolutely and in totality, using her children—the Monitors and Anti-Monitors—as her heralds and destructors. But a group of heroes has banded together across multiple worlds in a last-ditch effort to stop her from destroying all of existence: Owlman, President Superman, Iris West, Captain Carrot, Guy Gardner and others choose to make their final stand in a battle they’re destined to lose!

This is very much turning into an event, although unlike others, this is confined to its own world. We've seen books like this in the past and this is just as exciting as it allows the creators to play with the characters in ways they can't in the regular continuity. Needless to say, I'm looking forward to checking these out.
