Snyder and Capullo Reunite, Transform the DCU with #DCMetal


Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo, along with DC Publishers Jim Lee and Dan DiDio, just
​ ​
announced that their highly anticipated event, DARK NIGHTS: METAL, will rock
​ ​
comics this summer. The news was revealed at Fan Expo Dallas and streamed
​ ​
worldwide via Facebook Live.

“I’ve been planning METAL for as long as I’ve been writing BATMAN,” says
​ ​
Snyder. “But this is bigger than BATMAN. Greg and I started dropping clues
​ ​
during Court of Owls, we continued through our Joker stories and we placed our
​ ​
biggest hints in the run that culminated with BATMAN #50. And now we’re back to
​ ​
tell a story that breaks everything apart. This will be the definitive project of our
​ ​
careers. METAL takes us in an entirely new direction. Greg and I will dig beneath the
​ ​
surface of all the stories we’ve told to find a place of terror and twisted nightmares.”

The New York Times bestselling BATMAN writer and artist team of Scott Snyder and
​ ​
Greg Capullo made their mark as one of the great duos in Batman history. Together
​ ​
on a single title for an outstanding fifty issues, Snyder and Capullo’s award-winning
​ ​
stories The Court of Owls, Death of the Family, Zero Year and Endgame turned
​ ​
generations of Batman fans into a global horde of Batman superfans. With DARK
​ ​
NIGHTS: METAL, Scott and Greg will build on this strong foundation and broaden
​ ​
the scope of their storytelling to encompass the full expanse of the DC Universe.

“As you've probably heard by now, brother Scott and I are renewing our comic
​ ​
wedding vows,” says Capullo. "I'm looking forward to rock’n’ and roll’n’ together
​ ​
again. Fans have been loud and clear; they want more from us. You know what they
​ ​
say; give the people what they want. Jonathan Glapion and FCO, the original Bat
​ ​
team, will be riding the lightning with Scott and I once again. We're primed and
​ ​
ready to blow it up.”

“I couldn’t be more excited to see Scott and Greg take on the DC Universe,” says DC
​ ​
Entertainment Publisher Dan DiDio. “DARK NIGHTS: METAL leans into the strength
​ ​
of the relationship Scott and Greg forged on BATMAN to launch something new and
​ ​
unexpected. We’re pushing the world’s finest heroes in new, unexplored directions
​ ​
to tell a giant story, using all the characters in our pantheon.”

DC’s new summer blockbuster publishing plans complement DC Universe Rebirth,
​ ​
which is filled with stories about superheroes that push characters beyond their
​ ​
potential to a place where their courage is tested and they persevere in the face of
​ ​
evil. DARK NIGHTS: METAL will examine every choice a hero doesn’t take and every
​ ​
path they don’t walk, and open up worlds that are forged by nightmares.

“I want METAL to be built upon the stories happening now in Rebirth and create
​ ​
new material that feels really modern and different,” continued Snyder. “And above
​ ​
all, it’s going to be fun. Even with terror and nightmares, it won’t be grim. DARK
​ ​
NIGHTS: METAL will be celebratory, huge and crazy. I’ve said it before: I am going
​ ​
for out-of-control dinosaurs and lasers.”

DARK NIGHTS: METAL is DC at its most heroic, clashing with titans of terror from
​ ​
realms yet to be explored. Look for the first issue on shelves in August 2017.

Supernatural: The Complete Fourteenth Season Blu-ray Review

*Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this blog post. The opinions I share are my own* Synopsis: The Winchester brothers’ harrowing journey into the heart of darkness continues as Supernatural enters Season Fourteen. Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) have matched wits with monsters, demons, Heaven and Hell. But last season, the Winchesters and Castiel (Misha Collins) stumbled upon a terrifying alternate universe: an apocalyptic world where they were never born, all while training Jack (Alexander Calvert), the son of Lucifer, and trying to save their mother, Mary Winchester.

Book of the Week: Sci-Fi Thriller, Doyle’s Law

Doyle’s Law: Sci-Fi Thriller, a “Wild Ride”, Straps Readers into Space Station with Cosmos’ Most Irreverent Scientist Sam Roberts’ ‘Doyle’s Law’ is an intricate, cinematic new thriller that fuses intense paranoia and science fiction, told through the periscope of a bumbling, inept scientist attempting to fix the space station he has royally sabotaged. It’s a story in two parts, as time twists, plots tangle and the depths of human clumsiness become chillingly evident. One critic recently wrote, “This damn book cost me too much needed sleep. It was like a giant puzzle with all the pieces slowly making sense and fitting together. Well done, sir.” When most authors depict the crews of spaceships, they are painted as fearless, totally-in-control heroes using their wit and tenacity to achieve the unthinkable… …But Chief O’Connor, protagonist in Sam Roberts’ ‘Doyle’s Law’ is slightly less noble. In fact, his entire crew suspects him of sabotage and rampant buck-passing. As hostilities ri
