It kicks off with Dark Knights: Metal in August. Former Batman creative team Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo reunite for this book, which will set the tone and world for the other series. The new banner will focus on what the publisher called Masterclass artists working with newer writers. It will “bring the sense of craft into storytelling,” explained DC co-publisher Jim Lee during a press conference on Thursday morning.
The publisher wants to expand its universe and reach a new audience. co-publisher of DC Dan Didio explained that “It’s a starting point for characters. It’s a starting point for stories. We gotta keep building. We gotta keep introducing people to the DCU.” The Dark Matter banner will exist alongside the regular DC Universe, and the issues will cost $3. Variant covers for the books will not be released.
