    ?All it takes is one bad day!? That line from the Joker has never been truer. Over the years Batman/Bruce has had a number of ?bad days?. Being the hero he is he has always managed to to fight back. However what happens if on one of those days he. Decides the to take the ...

    Oh thank criminey, it?s over! With this fourth and final book, the nightmarishly tedious event Dark Nights: Metal is complete. And speaking of nightmares, here are the origin stories of The Nightmare Batmen. Any of them good? Nope. They add anything to the overall story? Nope. Total ...

    The origins of the Nightmare Batmen. They are all pretty cool and the art is great. It is a bit of a stretch in that in each of these Batman is an amalgam with another Justice League member. If you like Elseworlds, then you'll dig these. Also included is the Wild Hunt one-shot which I ...

    Great omnibus. Loved every page of it. Well, most of it anyway. ...

    I read most of these when they came out but the Wild Hunt came out so much later I didn't get to it. Now to rate them all together? If want a bigger review on each chapter of the Dark Knights can read my single reviews. Basically these are the origin stories of the evil Batman. We ...

    This volume collects all the one shot origin stories for each of the nightmare Batmen who are part of the Dark Nights: Metal event (except Barbatos himself). It also ends with The Wild Hunt, the one story that features the return of the great Grant Morrison, to unveil the intention of ...

    Fun (and VERY dark) origin stories for the evil Batmen. Each story also ties into the main Dark Nights Metal plot as a whole. ...

    Wow this collection is fantastic. World: The art is great, there are a lot of different artists which normally irks me with the different Nightmare Batmen it allows for more creativity and different tone. I love the world building, normally as I said it is filler for me but these ch...

    [Read as single issues] The breakout stars of Dark Nights: Metal, the Nightmare Batmen, get their own origin story one-shots, all collected here. Plus, the Justice League battles across the Multiverse in the Wild Hunt one-shot! Like most anthologies, this one's a little hit or miss...

    Huh. Color me suprised. This was actually GOOD! Compelling and interesting, and way better than the ACTUAL "Metal" mini-series. ...

    I'm a big fan of one-shot elseworld/multiverse stuff so this was right up my alley and for the most part it really delivered. ...

    3 1/2 Stars. If you?ve been following the hype behind Dark Nights then you?ve surely heard of this series by now. It gives the short version of the origin stories behind the seven most iconic Batman alternates in the series. They?re beautifully drawn, creepy, and downright co...

    This is the best Metal-related volume I've read yet, largely because each individual issue charts the origin story for each of the dark Batmen featured in the main storyline. Not all of them are evil (or started out that way). Some were corrupted by too much power. One went over the ed...

    What?s not to like about evil Batmen from the dark multiverse wrapped in heavy metal aesthetics and soaked in brutal, line-crossing violence? If you don?t like this, you don?t like comics. ...

    The Dark Multiverse is created by those that live in the Prime Multiverse. Words are created by the fears and hope for something ? it's a place where fears and failures come to life. Similarly, the Dark Knights are seven incarnations of Batman ? his fears, rejected plans, nightmare...

    The majority of my review on Metal will be under the title itself, but I wanted to say a few things about the Nightmare Batmen apart from my general review. These Batmen are SCARY! Basically, they are a look at what Batman would be like if he had tried to increase his power by killing...

    I received this book for free as part of a giveaway hosted on GoodReads. The Dark Knights Rising collection of Darks Nights Metal was interesting. It was not the pest comic I have ever read, but it had a few redeeming qualities, though I am hesitant to say those few qualities are en...

    THIS REVIEW & MORE ? SYNOPSES BY SARGE I received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Dark Days: The Road to Metal and Dark Days: The Road to Metal by Scott Snyder are the first two events. This is the third. Barbatos rules the Dark. If Batman can r...

    Just what the world wanted ? not one but two companion volumes to the most humdrum and dull event book from DC ever (qualified of course by all other events taking 20 books). This one covers all those dodgy Dark Batmen that did so damned little in the parent book, because we needed t...

    So, here's another tie-in to the Metal event, and it was one I was quite intrigued by. I decided to read the first two chapters of Metal; (to the point where these guys turn up) and *then* read this one and it was an interesting read. Unpacking my knowledge of how the Marvel exis...

    'Dark Knights: Metal: The Nightmare Batmen' is part of the DC Comics mega event. This is the third volume I've read and I feel like it's the strongest of the titles. All the Earths have all the heroes. With the coming of Barbatos, Batman has been corrupted. This volume shows all the...

    I got an ARC of this book. A whole ton of no on this one. I am all for an evil Batman, one that has been pushed too far that he finally snaps. Give me a broken Batman any day. Instead this was just Batman in different costumes killing people. They weren't Batman. The characters w...

    The different take on the Nightmare Batmen was really awesome, as was the varying artistic styles. I (surprisingly) liked The Murder Machine (not a Cybog fan, but the art and character were really well done). I also thought the Dawnbreaker was extremely cool. Devastator and Drowned, as...

    I get the idea behind it, but it still really feels like something the 13-year old I knew in school would pitch to us at the lunch table. "And then what if Batman was EVERY member of the Justice League and then what if it was all a dream and then what if Sandman was there and then ...

    As a whole, this really didn't work as a collection. I didn't care for most of the stories, with the major exception being the original story of Barbatos, which I feel is pretty crucial for the Metal arc and really helped the larger story make a lot more sense. The rest was pretty conf...

    ?All it takes is one bad day!? That line from the Joker has never been truer. Over the years Batman/Bruce has had a number of ?bad days?. Being the hero he is he has always managed to to fight back. However what happens if on one of those days he. Decides the to take the ...

    Oh thank criminey, it?s over! With this fourth and final book, the nightmarishly tedious event Dark Nights: Metal is complete. And speaking of nightmares, here are the origin stories of The Nightmare Batmen. Any of them good? Nope. They add anything to the overall story? Nope. Total ...

    The origins of the Nightmare Batmen. They are all pretty cool and the art is great. It is a bit of a stretch in that in each of these Batman is an amalgam with another Justice League member. If you like Elseworlds, then you'll dig these. Also included is the Wild Hunt one-shot which I ...

    Great omnibus. Loved every page of it. Well, most of it anyway. ...

    I read most of these when they came out but the Wild Hunt came out so much later I didn't get to it. Now to rate them all together? If want a bigger review on each chapter of the Dark Knights can read my single reviews. Basically these are the origin stories of the evil Batman. We ...

    This volume collects all the one shot origin stories for each of the nightmare Batmen who are part of the Dark Nights: Metal event (except Barbatos himself). It also ends with The Wild Hunt, the one story that features the return of the great Grant Morrison, to unveil the intention of ...

    Fun (and VERY dark) origin stories for the evil Batmen. Each story also ties into the main Dark Nights Metal plot as a whole. ...

    Wow this collection is fantastic. World: The art is great, there are a lot of different artists which normally irks me with the different Nightmare Batmen it allows for more creativity and different tone. I love the world building, normally as I said it is filler for me but these ch...

    This is the best Metal-related volume I've read yet, largely because each individual issue charts the origin story for each of the dark Batmen featured in the main storyline. Not all of them are evil (or started out that way). Some were corrupted by too much power. One went over the ed...

    The Dark Multiverse is created by those that live in the Prime Multiverse. Words are created by the fears and hope for something ? it's a place where fears and failures come to life. Similarly, the Dark Knights are seven incarnations of Batman ? his fears, rejected plans, nightmare...

    The majority of my review on Metal will be under the title itself, but I wanted to say a few things about the Nightmare Batmen apart from my general review. These Batmen are SCARY! Basically, they are a look at what Batman would be like if he had tried to increase his power by killing...

    THIS REVIEW & MORE ? SYNOPSES BY SARGE I received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Dark Days: The Road to Metal and Dark Days: The Road to Metal by Scott Snyder are the first two events. This is the third. Barbatos rules the Dark. If Batman can r...

    Just what the world wanted ? not one but two companion volumes to the most humdrum and dull event book from DC ever (qualified of course by all other events taking 20 books). This one covers all those dodgy Dark Batmen that did so damned little in the parent book, because we needed t...

    So, here's another tie-in to the Metal event, and it was one I was quite intrigued by. I decided to read the first two chapters of Metal; (to the point where these guys turn up) and *then* read this one and it was an interesting read. Unpacking my knowledge of how the Marvel exis...

    'Dark Knights: Metal: The Nightmare Batmen' is part of the DC Comics mega event. This is the third volume I've read and I feel like it's the strongest of the titles. All the Earths have all the heroes. With the coming of Barbatos, Batman has been corrupted. This volume shows all the...

    I got an ARC of this book. A whole ton of no on this one. I am all for an evil Batman, one that has been pushed too far that he finally snaps. Give me a broken Batman any day. Instead this was just Batman in different costumes killing people. They weren't Batman. The characters w...

    These are the origin stories of the dark and twisted hybrid Batmen who come out of the Multiverse: The Red Death (Batman/Flash), The Devastator (Batman/Doomsday), The Merciless (Batman/Wonder Woman), The Murder Machine (Batman/Cyborg), The Drowned (Batman/Aquawoman), The Dawnbreaker (B...

    Better than road to Metal and Metal itself. This volume focuses on the origin stories of the evil Batmen and their roles in the Metal crisis. Each Batman is basically an amalgam of Batman and another justice league member (or villain associated with a justice league member): Aqua man, ...

    The artwork and storylines throughout were fantastic, plot twists and reveals come at an almost frenetic pace. Almost, but just not enough to overwhelm the reader.. One issue though in reading via the Adobe reader is that certain text fonts become almost impossible to read, especial...

    I like the idea behind most of these alternate Bats, but I feel like most of these would have benefited from having their own books to flesh out their slide into madness than the quick snapshot we had narrated by the Bat who Laughs. I get that's probably a bit too much for this event t...

    ?All it takes is one bad day!? That line from the Joker has never been truer. Over the years Batman/Bruce has had a number of ?bad days?. Being the hero he is he has always managed to to fight back. However what happens if on one of those days he. Decides the to take the ...

    Oh thank criminey, it?s over! With this fourth and final book, the nightmarishly tedious event Dark Nights: Metal is complete. And speaking of nightmares, here are the origin stories of The Nightmare Batmen. Any of them good? Nope. They add anything to the overall story? Nope. Total ...

    The origins of the Nightmare Batmen. They are all pretty cool and the art is great. It is a bit of a stretch in that in each of these Batman is an amalgam with another Justice League member. If you like Elseworlds, then you'll dig these. Also included is the Wild Hunt one-shot which I ...

    This volume collects all the one shot origin stories for each of the nightmare Batmen who are part of the Dark Nights: Metal event (except Barbatos himself). It also ends with The Wild Hunt, the one story that features the return of the great Grant Morrison, to unveil the intention of ...

    Fun (and VERY dark) origin stories for the evil Batmen. Each story also ties into the main Dark Nights Metal plot as a whole. ...

    [Read as single issues] The breakout stars of Dark Nights: Metal, the Nightmare Batmen, get their own origin story one-shots, all collected here. Plus, the Justice League battles across the Multiverse in the Wild Hunt one-shot! Like most anthologies, this one's a little hit or miss...

    Huh. Color me suprised. This was actually GOOD! Compelling and interesting, and way better than the ACTUAL "Metal" mini-series. ...

    I'm a big fan of one-shot elseworld/multiverse stuff so this was right up my alley and for the most part it really delivered. ...

    3 1/2 Stars. If you?ve been following the hype behind Dark Nights then you?ve surely heard of this series by now. It gives the short version of the origin stories behind the seven most iconic Batman alternates in the series. They?re beautifully drawn, creepy, and downright co...

    This is the best Metal-related volume I've read yet, largely because each individual issue charts the origin story for each of the dark Batmen featured in the main storyline. Not all of them are evil (or started out that way). Some were corrupted by too much power. One went over the ed...

    What?s not to like about evil Batmen from the dark multiverse wrapped in heavy metal aesthetics and soaked in brutal, line-crossing violence? If you don?t like this, you don?t like comics. ...

    The Dark Multiverse is created by those that live in the Prime Multiverse. Words are created by the fears and hope for something ? it's a place where fears and failures come to life. Similarly, the Dark Knights are seven incarnations of Batman ? his fears, rejected plans, nightmare...

    The majority of my review on Metal will be under the title itself, but I wanted to say a few things about the Nightmare Batmen apart from my general review. These Batmen are SCARY! Basically, they are a look at what Batman would be like if he had tried to increase his power by killing...

    I received this book for free as part of a giveaway hosted on GoodReads. The Dark Knights Rising collection of Darks Nights Metal was interesting. It was not the pest comic I have ever read, but it had a few redeeming qualities, though I am hesitant to say those few qualities are en...

    THIS REVIEW & MORE ? SYNOPSES BY SARGE I received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Dark Days: The Road to Metal and Dark Days: The Road to Metal by Scott Snyder are the first two events. This is the third. Barbatos rules the Dark. If Batman can r...

    Just what the world wanted ? not one but two companion volumes to the most humdrum and dull event book from DC ever (qualified of course by all other events taking 20 books). This one covers all those dodgy Dark Batmen that did so damned little in the parent book, because we needed t...

    So, here's another tie-in to the Metal event, and it was one I was quite intrigued by. I decided to read the first two chapters of Metal; (to the point where these guys turn up) and *then* read this one and it was an interesting read. Unpacking my knowledge of how the Marvel exis...

    'Dark Knights: Metal: The Nightmare Batmen' is part of the DC Comics mega event. This is the third volume I've read and I feel like it's the strongest of the titles. All the Earths have all the heroes. With the coming of Barbatos, Batman has been corrupted. This volume shows all the...

    I got an ARC of this book. A whole ton of no on this one. I am all for an evil Batman, one that has been pushed too far that he finally snaps. Give me a broken Batman any day. Instead this was just Batman in different costumes killing people. They weren't Batman. The characters w...

    These are the origin stories of the dark and twisted hybrid Batmen who come out of the Multiverse: The Red Death (Batman/Flash), The Devastator (Batman/Doomsday), The Merciless (Batman/Wonder Woman), The Murder Machine (Batman/Cyborg), The Drowned (Batman/Aquawoman), The Dawnbreaker (B...

    Better than road to Metal and Metal itself. This volume focuses on the origin stories of the evil Batmen and their roles in the Metal crisis. Each Batman is basically an amalgam of Batman and another justice league member (or villain associated with a justice league member): Aqua man, ...

    The artwork and storylines throughout were fantastic, plot twists and reveals come at an almost frenetic pace. Almost, but just not enough to overwhelm the reader.. One issue though in reading via the Adobe reader is that certain text fonts become almost impossible to read, especial...

    I like the idea behind most of these alternate Bats, but I feel like most of these would have benefited from having their own books to flesh out their slide into madness than the quick snapshot we had narrated by the Bat who Laughs. I get that's probably a bit too much for this event t...

    What?s not to like about evil Batmen from the dark multiverse wrapped in heavy metal aesthetics and soaked in brutal, line-crossing violence? If you don?t like this, you don?t like comics. ...

    The Dark Multiverse is created by those that live in the Prime Multiverse. Words are created by the fears and hope for something ? it's a place where fears and failures come to life. Similarly, the Dark Knights are seven incarnations of Batman ? his fears, rejected plans, nightmare...

    The majority of my review on Metal will be under the title itself, but I wanted to say a few things about the Nightmare Batmen apart from my general review. These Batmen are SCARY! Basically, they are a look at what Batman would be like if he had tried to increase his power by killing...

    I received this book for free as part of a giveaway hosted on GoodReads. The Dark Knights Rising collection of Darks Nights Metal was interesting. It was not the pest comic I have ever read, but it had a few redeeming qualities, though I am hesitant to say those few qualities are en...

    THIS REVIEW & MORE ? SYNOPSES BY SARGE I received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Dark Days: The Road to Metal and Dark Days: The Road to Metal by Scott Snyder are the first two events. This is the third. Barbatos rules the Dark. If Batman can r...

    Just what the world wanted ? not one but two companion volumes to the most humdrum and dull event book from DC ever (qualified of course by all other events taking 20 books). This one covers all those dodgy Dark Batmen that did so damned little in the parent book, because we needed t...

    So, here's another tie-in to the Metal event, and it was one I was quite intrigued by. I decided to read the first two chapters of Metal; (to the point where these guys turn up) and *then* read this one and it was an interesting read. Unpacking my knowledge of how the Marvel exis...

    'Dark Knights: Metal: The Nightmare Batmen' is part of the DC Comics mega event. This is the third volume I've read and I feel like it's the strongest of the titles. All the Earths have all the heroes. With the coming of Barbatos, Batman has been corrupted. This volume shows all the...

    I got an ARC of this book. A whole ton of no on this one. I am all for an evil Batman, one that has been pushed too far that he finally snaps. Give me a broken Batman any day. Instead this was just Batman in different costumes killing people. They weren't Batman. The characters w...

    These are the origin stories of the dark and twisted hybrid Batmen who come out of the Multiverse: The Red Death (Batman/Flash), The Devastator (Batman/Doomsday), The Merciless (Batman/Wonder Woman), The Murder Machine (Batman/Cyborg), The Drowned (Batman/Aquawoman), The Dawnbreaker (B...

    Better than road to Metal and Metal itself. This volume focuses on the origin stories of the evil Batmen and their roles in the Metal crisis. Each Batman is basically an amalgam of Batman and another justice league member (or villain associated with a justice league member): Aqua man, ...

    ?All it takes is one bad day!? That line from the Joker has never been truer. Over the years Batman/Bruce has had a number of ?bad days?. Being the hero he is he has always managed to to fight back. However what happens if on one of those days he. Decides the to take the ...

    Oh thank criminey, it?s over! With this fourth and final book, the nightmarishly tedious event Dark Nights: Metal is complete. And speaking of nightmares, here are the origin stories of The Nightmare Batmen. Any of them good? Nope. They add anything to the overall story? Nope. Total ...

    The origins of the Nightmare Batmen. They are all pretty cool and the art is great. It is a bit of a stretch in that in each of these Batman is an amalgam with another Justice League member. If you like Elseworlds, then you'll dig these. Also included is the Wild Hunt one-shot which I ...

    Great omnibus. Loved every page of it. Well, most of it anyway. ...

    I read most of these when they came out but the Wild Hunt came out so much later I didn't get to it. Now to rate them all together? If want a bigger review on each chapter of the Dark Knights can read my single reviews. Basically these are the origin stories of the evil Batman. We ...

    This volume collects all the one shot origin stories for each of the nightmare Batmen who are part of the Dark Nights: Metal event (except Barbatos himself). It also ends with The Wild Hunt, the one story that features the return of the great Grant Morrison, to unveil the intention of ...

    Fun (and VERY dark) origin stories for the evil Batmen. Each story also ties into the main Dark Nights Metal plot as a whole. ...

    The artwork and storylines throughout were fantastic, plot twists and reveals come at an almost frenetic pace. Almost, but just not enough to overwhelm the reader.. One issue though in reading via the Adobe reader is that certain text fonts become almost impossible to read, especial...

    I like the idea behind most of these alternate Bats, but I feel like most of these would have benefited from having their own books to flesh out their slide into madness than the quick snapshot we had narrated by the Bat who Laughs. I get that's probably a bit too much for this event t...

    According to release date, this is the third volume that I read after first reading the exposition volume and the main story line with its conclusion. ABSOLUTELY, read this volume second after reading the exposition volume. If you don't, you will be unfortunate enough to miss out on kn...

    The different take on the Nightmare Batmen was really awesome, as was the varying artistic styles. I (surprisingly) liked The Murder Machine (not a Cybog fan, but the art and character were really well done). I also thought the Dawnbreaker was extremely cool. Devastator and Drowned, as...
