Dark Nights: Metal: The Resistance (Dark Nights: Metal — Collected Editions #2) Reviews
The majority of my review will be under the main Metal title, but there are basically 3 plots I should cover here.
1) Gotham Resistance - This story deals with the lesser heroes (Teen Titans, Nightwing, Suicide Squad and Green Arrow) and their time at the beginning of the Metal storyline. Part of the story has them fighting against various villains (Mr. Freeze, Poison Ivy, etc) who have been given a dark metal playing card that bestows power from Barbatos via The Batman Who Laughs. As they stop t ...more
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.
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
A mountain has appeared in the middle of Gotham somehow transforming the city into a dark fairyland or something for some reason. Dumb, vague outline? Sounds like Dark Nights: Metal to me! In The Resistance, heroes (and the Suicide Squad) resist villains… but don’t they always do that?!
This book collects some of the tie-in issues to that loathsome event, Dark Nights: Metal. Sometimes tie-ins are better than the event – that’s not the case here. Not a single comic was worth reading.

I don't know where Goodreads got 128 pages for the length of this - the one I read was 221 pages.
I received an ARC copy of this book. What follows is an honest review.
Dark Nights: Metal: The Resistance. is like most graphic novels a collection of comics that were published then put into a book. It ties with with the Dark Night Series of graphic novels. In Dark Nights: Metal: Deluxe Edition we get the story of Batman bringing over Multiverse versions of himself. They represent various members of his companions (Justice League) and his enemies but each are a dark side of the Batman. With thi ...more
For tie-ins this is pretty fantastic.
World: The art is mostly very good, the artists from the respective series takes on the role and the design of the 'Dark Nights Metal' world is pretty fantastic so yeah it's good. The world building is pretty good, with the Dante's Inferno homage, the Bat villains in each ring, the stakes being high and bits and pieces of the greater 'Dark Nights Metal' world building being a part of this tie in, I'm surprised how much these issues mattered.
Story: There are 2 ...more
