First Look: Dark Days: The Casting #1

We took our first steps toward Metal with this week’s Dark Days: The Forge, and already DC has released some preview pages for the next chapter.  With Dark Days: The Casting, it’s looking like Snyder, Tynion IV, Lee, Kubert, and Romita, Jr. are doubling-down in the insanity.  I mean, how do you follow Batman punching a volcano?  Have him fight a griffin, of course!

Check out the preview pages in the gallery below, which also has quite a bit of Hawks ‘Man and ‘Girl ‘Woman ‘Lady ‘Person.  And… am I crazy or is that Dubbilex?  Could be.

Really, though, is it Dubbilex?  There are rumors Conner Kent Superboy will be returning soon, so could this be a precursor?  Are we getting sweet leather jacket Superboy again?  Ohhh, the possibilities.

But really: Batman fights a griffin.  What else can I say?
