The thrilling DARK NIGHTS: METAL tie-in, “Bats Out of Hell,” lights up the pages of HAL JORDAN AND THE GREEN LANTERN CORPS #32 this week in a breathtaking chapter that builds to a gripping battle between Hal and his evil Dark Knight counterpart, the Dawnbreaker. After the Dawnbreaker’s teammates took down the rest of the Justice League one-by-one last week in JUSTICE LEAGUE #32, it would seem that Green Lantern is the world’s last hope. But with so much aligned against him, does he have any chance at all?

You did read the part where I said it was Hal we’re talking about, right? The guy literally doesn’t know the meaning of the world “fear”! He’s not about to back down, especially against someone as reprehensible as the Dawnbreaker, who murdered the entire Green Lantern Corps on his Earth within the Dark Multiverse. By drawing on the memories of his friends, family and hometown, Hal finds more than enough courage to put up a fight, and with everything on the line, you know it’s going to be a good one. But in the end, only one of these two Lanterns will remain standing. Which will it be?

Check out the opening blow in this exclusive first look!
