DC Comics cares a lot about the Super-Pets, so much so they will go to court against Netflix to defend them. But this November, as
The Batman Who Laughs Batmanhattan The Darkest Knight is creating his own New 52 full of darkest versions of reality. Definitely not a commentary on Dan DiDio, right? Surely not. Which includes a very dark world of dark Super-Pets in The Multiverse Who Laughs, one of a number of Dark Metal one-shots we had previously identified.
As well as storytime with Lobo in Infinite Hour Exxxtreme while the DC heroes try and survive the new reality the Darkest Knight has made. Here’s more of the Death Metal stuff coming from DC in November, as well as the Justice League crossover…
Dark Nights: Death Metal The Multiverse Who Laughs #1
With the multiverse is destroyed, the worlds of the DC universe are nightmares!
The DC Multiverse is a collection of alternate-reality worlds where anything is possible. Each world tells the tale of a possible split in reality, or shows how lives vary depending on a single, solitary decision. But now that the Multiverse has been destroyed, the Batman Who Laughs has used his god like power to create a new Dark Multiverse…a collection of 52 evil worlds, each more terrifying than the last. This one-shot offers the curious—and the brave—a glimpse into the nightmare realities that the Batman Who Laughs has created in tales by creators who know what it means to have a truly twisted sense of misfit humor. An Arkham Asylum even more terrifying than what we know? A world of evil Super Pets? All that and more in these new tales of the Multiverse Who Laughs!
