DC had a big week as Dark Days: The Casting the second prequel to Dark Nights: Metal came out. This was chalk full of secrets, and a twist to Batman’s origin by the looks of it. Duke is a meta, the Joker actually seems semi sane and Batman appears to be willing to do anything to get to the bottom of the secret of the Nth Metal. There is no doubt that Dark Nights: Metal will forever change the DC universe and Batman specifically. It appears that everything will be changed for Batman and his allies. Also check out: Action Comics, Detective Comics, Wonder Woman, Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps, Suicide Squad and Batgirl and the Birds of Prey.
Marvel had a solid week. My favourite from this week would have to be Darth Vader. This series is so interesting to me because it really is the final quest of Vader becoming Vader. This issue was incredible because of the artwork done by Giuseppe Camuncoli, it was intense and really ramped up Darth Vader’s battle against the Jedi he encountered. The best scene was when Vader was being drown and all the water exploded away from him while Vader’s costume was being torn up. This imagery was so powerful to see, and once again reminded me of how powerful Darth Vader is. Also check out: Defenders, Old Man Logan, Rocket, Jean Grey, X-Men: Blue and Doctor Aphra.
