DC Reveals New Art from Dark Nights: Death Metal



Scott Snyder Makes a Surprise Appearance to Talk About

His Head-Banging Sequel to Dark Nights: Metal

One of the great things about comic convention panels – you rarely know when you’re going to get a special guest appearance or announcement! Fans attending today’s The Super Heroes of DC Panel at C2E2 received a surprise, as bestselling writer Scott Snyder made a walk-on appearance, catching everyone off guard.

Scott stopped by to talk to fans about Dark Nights: Death Metal, the highly anticipated sequel to the smash-hit series of 2017-18, Dark Nights: Metal. He gave fans an early look at brand-new artwork from the debut issue of Death Metal by artist and longtime collaborator Greg Capullo. And with fellow Metal contributors James Tynion IV (Dark Days: The Forge, Dark Days: The Casting, Dark Nights Rising: The Wild Hunt) and Joshua Williamson (Batman: The Red Death) on the panel, Snyder may have dropped a few hints about what he has in store for them regarding more behind the scenes stories from the “metalverse.”

Dark Nights: Death Metal #1 is scheduled to hit comic book stores and participating online retailers May 13, 2020.
