Dark Nights Death Metal Reading Order

Dark Nights: Metal was a huge success so it’s no surprise that a sequel was going to be made which included the breakout star the Batman who laughs. Death Metal, is however, a slightly different story and tone to Metal and as such as such reading all of the original metal isn’t really needed to get into it.

Scott Snyder is once again at the helm – find out how to read his work here.

Death Metal is a Wonder Woman event, but does heavily include the Batman Who Laughs and Perpetua – so for the full experience please visit those respective reading orders. Death Metal leads into the Future State.
