CM Podcast 120 – Dark Knights: Metal

Welcome back!  This week Jon and I decided to review the first issue of DC’s new event series: Dark Knight: Metal.

It is written by Scott Snyder with art by Greg Capullo and Jonathan Glapion.  We had already did a podcast on the prelude books: The Forge and The Casting (Podcast 115) so we were very excited to read the first issue.

In the podcast, Jon and I refer to the series as just:

DK_metal_logo

but the real name is:

DK_metal_new

It was a fun read that had many questions and not very many answers (just like the prelude comics) but we are looking forward to the next issue to hopefully start getting some answers.

Listen to the podcast for all the details on the comic.

Your comics pal,

Jim

I apologize if we mispronounced any of the writers or artist names.  We will try better next time.

This podcast runs a little longer than our normal ones because there are so many things to talk about with each of these titles.  We hope you enjoy our reviews and find some new comics to pick up.

Also, Will Magnus is the creator of the Metal Men not the Magnetic Man.  My brain was on overload.  Sorry.
