Look alive, DC fans, we have something special for you. If you visit our site regularly, you may have noticed that we have a typical way of doing things. Unless you’re attending one of our Comic-Con panels, we usually don’t preview new comics until the art in them is largely finished.

However, we’re doing things a little different today, and giving you a look at a few comics that are still very much in progress. Why? Because we’re talking about DARK NIGHTS: METAL, that’s why.

Metal is all about being loud, hard and breaking rules. So in that spirit, we’ve tossed aside ours and are giving you an early sneak peek at DARK NIGHTS: METAL #3 and BATMAN: THE MERCILESS #1, as well as the cover for BATMAN: THE DROWNED #1. Obviously, most of the art below is unfinished. It lacks color and even inks in some places. But it’ll give you an idea of what you’re in for as the Dark Multiverse makes itself known. It’s hard, it’s fun and it’ll melt your face right off.
