Earlier this week, DC Comics revealed a major, incredibly unexpected return of a character that many fans thought they'd never see again, thanks to the final page of Dark Nights: Metal #1. It was definitely a shocking moment in a comics event that's been promising to be a bonkers exploration of the DC mythos for a while now. But I'm here to tell you: This comic is so much crazier than you're imagining.

Telltale Games' ongoing creation of its own unique Dark Knight continuity — which began with last year's Batman: The Telltale Series — has been fascinating to play through. The changes made to the people in Bruce Wayne's double life have been surprisingly dramatic and the best one may be yet to come.
This Wednesday, Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo will finally begin their utterly bizarre-sounding new comics event, Dark Nights: Metal. It's already promised crazy armour and even crazier Batmen, but now DC has revealed that the series is going to plunge into the deep depths of the publisher's own back catalogue.
If there's one thing the late, great Adam West and the ever... curmudgeonly William Shatner had in common, it's their ability to chew the hell out of whatever scenery they happen to be near at any given moment. Thankfully, both actors turned themselves up to 11 in the new Batman vs. Two-Face animated movie.
Mister Miracle has been mostly absent from DC's comics for the past few years — a strange, weird relic of an older age. That makes him perfect for a revival in the form of his brand new ongoing series from Tom King and Mitch Gerads, a fascinating and intense exploration of personal trauma that brings something haunting to a Jack Kirby classic.
Justice League: The New Frontier is one of DC's better animated movies primarily because it understands who the members of the League are and what they stand for together, as a team. But, as solid a plot as the movie has, it's also worth remembering the incredible levels of talent contained in the voice cast.
Sam Humphries, Eduardo Pansica and Julio Ferreira's Green Lanterns comic has been doing some of the weirdest stuff in DC Rebirth, using its cosmic scope to explore the vast history of the Lantern corps. Its latest issue tackles the coming together of the first Green Lanterns... but it turns out that they weren't quite as heroic as you might have expected.
It's a plot line we've seen time and time again. The children of heroes we know today travel into the past from an apocalyptic future to inform their parents of the colossal mistakes they're destined to make. In its upcoming (and questionably named) Legacy arc, DC's getting into the parental drama again.
Later this year, the DC Animated Universe is returning to one of its most iconic worlds, the art deco noir of Batman: The Animated Series for Batman and Harley Quinn. But before the movie, DC is launching a new digital comic that sets up why Harley and Batman are teaming up where Harleen is the star — and we sat down with its creators to learn more.
Very few things in the world excited us as much as the news that the cruelly truncated Young Justice would be returning for a third season in 2018 on a new DC streaming service. The announcement was light on details, but thanks to a crowded early morning panel at San Diego Comic-Con we now know that the season will be 26 episodes long and introduce three new members of the team.
The series of events that led to Duke Thomas becoming a masked vigilante were shaped by tragedy and pain, but like most of Bruce Wayne's young proteges, the traumas of his past are what drives him to patrol Gotham's dangerous streets. Following the events of We Are Robin, Duke gave up being Robin to stand by Batman's side as a new kind of bat-themed hero — and now he's getting a chance to stand alone.
At last year's Comic-Con, we brought you the vital news that Japanese statute maker Kotobukiya was planning a new line of "handsome men" statues that would kick off with DC's Nightwing, a homage to one of — if not the — best butts in comics. Now, a year later, we finally have our first look at the statue, and it's a delight from top... to bottom. (Not sorry.)
