Dark Knights Rising: The Wild Hunt #1


Adam's Pick

Continued from the pages of the bestselling DARK NIGHTS: METAL! The Dark Knights ride through the farthest reaches of the Multiverse to track down the unlikeliest of teams: The Flash, Cyborg, Raven and Detective Chimp. The mission: keep these heroes from completing their desperate quest to save all of existence! Plus, Challengers' Mountain crackles with dark energy that will release an army of the world's worst nightmares into the streets of Gotham City! This one-shot also answers the question: Where are the Metal Men? And who is the latest addition to the team? 

What would happen if Scott Snyder (Batman N52) and Grant Morrison (We3, Klaus, Happy) got together and surrounded themselves with DC Comics' best creators.. And then wrote a book that tied into one of the best DC Events of the modern day? That is what happens with the Dark Nights: Metal tie-in, Dark Knights Rising: The Wild Hunt #1. And you... NEED this book!
