Hey there readers, we are only hours away from the release of the big screen debut of “Wonder Woman” which is the next live-action installment in the growing DC Extended Universe. With this being the case I decided to offer up the first issues from DC Comics before the other providers so let’s get right on down to it since there is some great stuff coming. As usual the images and press copy come from their side of the media fence and we shall close it out with some editorial thoughts. Let’s go.
DARK DAYS: THE FORGE #1: DARKNESS COMES TO THE DC UNIVERSE WITH THE MYSTERY OF THE FORGE! Aquaman, The Flash and more of DC’s pantheon of heroes suspect Batman of hiding a dark secret that could threaten the very existence of the multiverse! It’s an epic that will span generations—but how does it connect to the origins of one of DC’s most legendary heroes? The great comics event of summer 2017 is about to begin courtesy of superstar writers Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV and illustrated by a master class of comics artists: Andy Kubert, Jim Lee and John Romita Jr.! You do not want to miss this one!
Written by SCOTT SNYDER and JAMES TYNION IV • Art by JIM LEE, ANDY KUBERT, JOHN ROMITA JR. and others. Cover by JIM LEE and SCOTT WILLIAMS • Variant cover by ANDY KUBERT • Variant cover by JOHN ROMITA JR.
