DC Comics will launch Dark Nights: Death Metal, a sequel series to its successful Dark Nights: Metal series, in May.  The same creative team will do the sequel:  Scott Snyder will write and Greg Capullo will provide the art.  Jonathan Glapion will ink and FCO Plascencia will contribute colors.

The first three issues of Dark Nights: Death Metal will be released in May, June, and July, and issues #4-#6 in September, October, and November.  In addition to the core six-issue series, several Metalverse one-shots will be released throughout the summer months.

The storyline draws on the events of Snyder’s Justice League run and James Dynion IV’s Year of the Villain: Hell Arisen.  The Earth has been conquered by the Batman Who Laughs and his team of corrupted heroes, as Wonder Woman and the Flash make compromises to keep humanity alive, Batman mounts an underground resistance, and Superman is imprisoned.  Wonder Woman receives information that might help.  "Can the Justice League break away from the Dark Multiverse and defeat Perpetua?"
