Dark Days: The Road to Metal Reviews

  • Seizure Romero
    Aug 15, 2018

    This is a collection of preludes of things to come. This is a real mixed bag. I did enjoy the Road to Metal stories the Forge and the Casting, but mist of the other back issues in this collection were my least favorite Batman stories ever. If I was going to rate the Forge and the Ca...

    Magic metal has somehow been secretly guiding humanity for years apparently. And of course Batman knows about it. A war or something is coming. This is Dark Days: The Road to Metal aka Scott Snyder Does A Crappy Grant Morrison Impression! You know a DC book is going to suck donkey ...

    Metal is coming!!! This metal-foil dustcover hardcover TPB features: ?Dark Days: The Forge? #1, ?Dark Days: The Casting? #1, ?Final Crisis? #6-7, ?Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne? #1, ?Batman? #38-39, ?Nightwing? #17, ?Detective Comics? #950, plus t...

    Save your cash and go buy Dark Days: The Forge and The Casting instead. That's the only new content in a book that will run you $30 (That's 70 new pages out of 258. Grr!). The rest is just issues from Final Crisis and beyond that touch on what Scott Snyder is putting together. If you r...

    This was...good. But I wanted more. This is 4 issues, two being main links to Metal, the other being more call-back or more context for the overall Metal Story incoming. So we'll focus on those two issues which is The Forge and The Casting which largely focus on the "darkness" comi...

    You can find my review on my blog by clicking here. One thing I love about DC is how they don?t restrain themselves from expanding their universe in ways that you would never have conceived yourself. Their multiverse alone is brilliant, and this event is going to do something even...

    I can't say I understood everything in this story, but it was entertaining, had great art, and promised some amazing things in the future. Can't wait to read the next part of the story. ...

    A little disappointed. I like what I read with the first 2 issues. It provides a good introduction to the world that snyder is creating. As a whole though the compilation contained much to many old issues that most fans would have consumed years ago. Solid but skip the 2nd half, you ma...

    The art in this book is amazing! I would have enjoyed the stories better if I had read more of the prior stories. Therefore it felt like a lot of incomplete tales. But what was there was thrilling! Batman searching for a cure to a poison the Joker infected Gotham with. Batman searching...

    My brain just exploded. World: The art is great, there are a couple of artists on this book but I'm mostly going to focus on the Forge and the Casting as the other issues are old issues which have great artists and I don't need to talk about it here. The art in both Forge and The Ca...

    Oh DC, you're so silly sometimes. And you were doing so well. Let's get this out of the way to start with - The Forge and The Casting are the main draw here, two prelude issues to Dark Nights: Metal which are excellent set-ups and have some of the industries best artists on them. Bu...

    I received this from Edelweiss and DC Comics in exchange for an honest review. This was pretty much all over the place, but I understand the reasoning behind it: there are several, dozens maybe, threads that are all leading to the Dark Days: Metal event. Most of the issues inclu...

    When it comes to event books, especially from the two big publishers of Marvel and DC, there is a lot of build-up in terms of placing characters into mini-adventures that teases the big event, and thus we have the preludes. As an introduction to DC?s summer event of last year, Dark N...

    2.5 This was a half a good book, the remaining stories are from years previous and weren't that interesting. Scott Snyder is the DC poster boy at the moment and the Road to Metal is definitely the best part of this collection. I'm eager to read the entire saga, that has multiple ver...

    Just a bit of story and a bunch of re-released filler. The main story will probably read better in an eventual omnibus. ...

    Three stars seems like low-balling, considering the good-t0-great quality of most of the material included here. I don't think it accomplishes its goal, however, if its goal is to give enough background from the Batman mythos of the last decade or so- which has gotten pretty complicate...

    Well, I.....uh...huh. Everything that could be said has pretty much been said about this ?road? to Metal. I haven?t gotten to the series itself yet, so I?ll reserve judgement until then. As others have noted, much of this trade is a curated trip (yes, a trip in the Grant Morris...

    It's times like these that I realize I should have read the entire DC Universe chronologically. This felt really jarring and all over the place. And I started reading DC comics in 2016 and I've been very active, but I still feel like I have no idea what is really going on in the grand ...

    Dark Days: The Road to Metal Author: Scott Snyder (Author), James Tynion IV (Author), Tim Seeley (Author), Andy Kubert (Illustrator), Jim Lee (Illustrator), John Romita (Illustrator), Scott Williams(Illustrator), Klaus Janson (Illustrator), Danny Miki (Illustrator), Javier Fernandez(I...

    Note: my review is only for the Dark Days issues. I didn't want to like this as much as I did. Trust me, I'm as tired of earth-shattering crossovers as the next jaded superhero reader, and normally I steer clear of them whenever possible. I checked this one after seeing a few headli...

    I received a copy of Dark Days: The Road to Metal from DC/NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. Dark Days: The Road to Metal is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. It?s a collection of all the stories that lead up the massively popular (and influential) Dark M...

    To see more reviews check out MI Book Reviews. I got an ARC of this book. This book tries so hard to start this massive, epic war that has been going on since the dawn of time. There is a metal that is beyond powerful and super secret. Yet, somehow Batman knows about it. It isn't...

    This was interesting, though not entirely clear. Netgalley dropped 4 volumes of Metal-related stuff all at once and, in the interest of trying to read it in order, I went through this one first. I'm not sure I really understood everything and the story was a bit disjointed, running thr...

    Not a lot here. Snyder builds the suspense and mystery around a metal that seems to have played an important part of the DC universe. He does a decent job of getting the reader wanting to know more, but he hasn't improved any on his exposition and heavy handedness at explaining things....

    I'm not going to bother rating this as I didn't slog through the supplemental back issues that (I guess?) would have helped make some sense out of all of this. I might read the main "Metal" event issues at some point, but this hot molten mess didn't really stoke my iron will to do s...

    I think I need a 'hot mess' shelf. This might make sense if you've been following the DC universe. I haven't been. ...

    Three stars seems like low-balling, considering the good-t0-great quality of most of the material included here. I don't think it accomplishes its goal, however, if its goal is to give enough background from the Batman mythos of the last decade or so- which has gotten pretty complicate...

    Well, I.....uh...huh. Everything that could be said has pretty much been said about this ?road? to Metal. I haven?t gotten to the series itself yet, so I?ll reserve judgement until then. As others have noted, much of this trade is a curated trip (yes, a trip in the Grant Morris...

    It's times like these that I realize I should have read the entire DC Universe chronologically. This felt really jarring and all over the place. And I started reading DC comics in 2016 and I've been very active, but I still feel like I have no idea what is really going on in the grand ...

    Note: my review is only for the Dark Days issues. I didn't want to like this as much as I did. Trust me, I'm as tired of earth-shattering crossovers as the next jaded superhero reader, and normally I steer clear of them whenever possible. I checked this one after seeing a few headli...

    I received a copy of Dark Days: The Road to Metal from DC/NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. Dark Days: The Road to Metal is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. It?s a collection of all the stories that lead up the massively popular (and influential) Dark M...

    To see more reviews check out MI Book Reviews. I got an ARC of this book. This book tries so hard to start this massive, epic war that has been going on since the dawn of time. There is a metal that is beyond powerful and super secret. Yet, somehow Batman knows about it. It isn't...

    ?It all started with a tooth. A metal tooth that could bring the dead back to life.? Green Lantern senses an evil presence emanating from the deep recesses of the Batcave. The Joker escapes from his electronic cage. Batman is given a dagger by his ex, Talia, to help him in his s...

    2.5 This was a half a good book, the remaining stories are from years previous and weren't that interesting. Scott Snyder is the DC poster boy at the moment and the Road to Metal is definitely the best part of this collection. I'm eager to read the entire saga, that has multiple ver...

    Just a bit of story and a bunch of re-released filler. The main story will probably read better in an eventual omnibus. ...

    Well, I.....uh...huh. Everything that could be said has pretty much been said about this ?road? to Metal. I haven?t gotten to the series itself yet, so I?ll reserve judgement until then. As others have noted, much of this trade is a curated trip (yes, a trip in the Grant Morris...

    It's times like these that I realize I should have read the entire DC Universe chronologically. This felt really jarring and all over the place. And I started reading DC comics in 2016 and I've been very active, but I still feel like I have no idea what is really going on in the grand ...

    This is a collection of preludes of things to come. This is a real mixed bag. I did enjoy the Road to Metal stories the Forge and the Casting, but mist of the other back issues in this collection were my least favorite Batman stories ever. If I was going to rate the Forge and the Ca...

    This was...good. But I wanted more. This is 4 issues, two being main links to Metal, the other being more call-back or more context for the overall Metal Story incoming. So we'll focus on those two issues which is The Forge and The Casting which largely focus on the "darkness" comi...

    Note: my review is only for the Dark Days issues. I didn't want to like this as much as I did. Trust me, I'm as tired of earth-shattering crossovers as the next jaded superhero reader, and normally I steer clear of them whenever possible. I checked this one after seeing a few headli...

    I received a copy of Dark Days: The Road to Metal from DC/NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. Dark Days: The Road to Metal is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. It?s a collection of all the stories that lead up the massively popular (and influential) Dark M...

    To see more reviews check out MI Book Reviews. I got an ARC of this book. This book tries so hard to start this massive, epic war that has been going on since the dawn of time. There is a metal that is beyond powerful and super secret. Yet, somehow Batman knows about it. It isn't...

    ?It all started with a tooth. A metal tooth that could bring the dead back to life.? Green Lantern senses an evil presence emanating from the deep recesses of the Batcave. The Joker escapes from his electronic cage. Batman is given a dagger by his ex, Talia, to help him in his s...

    This was interesting, though not entirely clear. Netgalley dropped 4 volumes of Metal-related stuff all at once and, in the interest of trying to read it in order, I went through this one first. I'm not sure I really understood everything and the story was a bit disjointed, running thr...

    Not a lot here. Snyder builds the suspense and mystery around a metal that seems to have played an important part of the DC universe. He does a decent job of getting the reader wanting to know more, but he hasn't improved any on his exposition and heavy handedness at explaining things....

    I'm not going to bother rating this as I didn't slog through the supplemental back issues that (I guess?) would have helped make some sense out of all of this. I might read the main "Metal" event issues at some point, but this hot molten mess didn't really stoke my iron will to do s...
