Dark Nights: Metal: The Resistance (Dark Nights: Metal — Collected Editions #2) Reviews
Eh this started off good but went down quick.
Well this is the last Metal thing to read. I was actually excited for this because it had some great art, a solid team of writers, and a interesting idea. Sadly, it all comes crumbling down after the start of Gotham resistance. So after we come past the initial events and having our heroes like Robin, Nightwing, Harley and more team up they all break up and then the focus shifts to the Justice League and sorry...they aren't as interesting. Also this ...more
This really didn't work as a collection. There is no real narrative arc, just a bunch of stories set during the Metal event without context. I felt like some of the issues included should have been in the main Metal collection to provide a lot of critical information.
[Read as single issues]
The events of Dark Nights: Metal continue to reverberate across the DC Universe, as a ragtag band of heroes attempts to infiltrate the newly transformed Gotham City. Then, the Justice League tackle the Nightmare Batmen head on, while Batman finds himself lost in the Dark Multiverse and Hawkman finds himself transformed into a Hawk-Monster!
Gotham Resistance is the lead story here, linking Green Arrow, Nightwing, Teen Titans, and Suicide Squad together for a four issue story ...more
Now this is how you do event tie-ins!
I recently finished reading the Daredevil: Shadowland Omnibus, and all of the tie-ins to that story are totally pointless. They don't affect the main story at all and many are retconned immediately so that they don't change anything in the main story.
Here, however, the tie-ins are all very important to the overall Dark Nights event. Besides that, the art was fantastic (especially Sejic's Suicide Squad #26).
I enjoyed this collection of stories. This collection features issues that tie into the Metal story line, but feature all of the other DC universe characters. I'm excited to read the last book in the series now and see the stories from the Dark Knights perspectives.
Thanks to DC and Netgalley for a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
I got an ARC of this book.
I really should have stopped reading this series. The more I read of the spin off and tie ins, the less I like the series. The series itself had a ton of plot holes, very little cohesive story, and no character development. This book makes all of those issues glaringly obvious and then some.
The book opens with an old Bruce Wayne talking to his granddaughter, no mention of who her dad is. Is she his biological grandchild? No clue. Maybe it is mentioned somewhere, but I ...more
Just what the world wanted – the whole hot mess of Metal to be over, with this second companion piece. Well, shall I be charitable and say that if the single issues were in the netgalley file in the right order it might actually have made some sense? Or shall I just be blunt and say that it wouldn't, and that it's all dross – below the already below-par status of the other books?
