    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.

    Compared to the Nightmare Batmen tie-in volume, this one felt a lot less monumental, yet it was still worth checking out for the extra details to the lore that it added.

    The Bats Out of Hell story arc (4 parts) focuses a lot more on the members of the Justice League that are still fighting to survive the cataclysmic event (The Flash, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Aquaman and Cyborg). It dives into some of the mini-events that took place in the Metal event, but doesn't offer any huge revelation. C

    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.

    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

    Unlike a lot of these types of tie-ins to comic book events, these actually expand the Metal story in a meaningful way. One should definitely read this volume to have a full understanding of the Metal event, but in the order they were published. "Gotham Resistance" (Teen Titans #12, Nightwing #29, Suicide Squad #26, Green Arrow #32) takes place between Metal #2 and #3, while "Bats Out of Hell" (The Flash #33, Justice League #32, Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #32, Justice League #33) and ...more

    Now this is how you do event tie-ins!
    I recently finished reading the Daredevil: Shadowland Omnibus, and all of the tie-ins to that story are totally pointless. They don't affect the main story at all and many are retconned immediately so that they don't change anything in the main story.
    Here, however, the tie-ins are all very important to the overall Dark Nights event. Besides that, the art was fantastic (especially Sejic's Suicide Squad #26).

    Enjoyed this side story to Dark Nights: Metal—it fleshes out moments mentioned briefly in the main story, and adds a wicked cool villain-sidekick to boot. Read in single issues during the 2017 DC Comics “Dark Nights: Metal” run.

    This really didn't work as a collection. There is no real narrative arc, just a bunch of stories set during the Metal event without context. I felt like some of the issues included should have been in the main Metal collection to provide a lot of critical information.

    This shows you what other heroes are doing during the time that the others are looking for superman. I do like knowing what Nightwing has been through and the others, it shows why Nightwing is the way he is when we see him in the other books and why he is so down about it. The stories are also well written within each other, the connection making sense for the most part, and it flows well through each comic.

    The artwork is pretty, I think my favorite would be the suicide squad and Nightwing. Ivy'
