DC To Get 5x More Dark After Summer

Welcome to the new age of DC heroes

DC will go dark again soon (did they stop?). The company already announced their new events Dark Days and Dark Nights, but following those, things will get 5x more dark. That's when Dark Matter starts. No, DC did not acquire Dark Horse's 2012 series (turned TV series) Dark Matter, but have branded their "event" following Dark Days and Dark Nights, Dark Matter.

That's a lot of dark.

Dark Matter with birth five titles with characters that were introduced in Dark Nights: Metal. Jim Lee briefly woke up from a nap to explain to folks the aim of Dark Matter:

"[Dark Matter is] a return to bringing both the writer and artist to the fore to unlock their full potential" … "At the talent summit we discussed what was missing in comics and how we could create something that’s new for this generation of fans. The result was Dark Matter. You’ll see bombastic action scenes and a visual narrative driven by the artist. This approach has energized the creators involved, myself included, and we’re going to have a lot of fun with these books."

 

Here's a rundown of the five titles that were announced. Apparently they have also stopped using computers at DC:

The Silencer by Dan Abnett and John Romita Jr. (September): "The world's most deadly assassin has to abandon her retirement when her new suburban life is threatened by ghosts from her past."

Sideways by Dan DiDio, Justin Jordan and Kenneth Rocafort (September): "In the aftermath of an accident, a teenager has the ability to teleport through alternate dimensions, but his new power comes with a dangerous temptation."

Immortal Men by James Tynion IV and Jim Lee (October): "Five siblings from the dawn of time work together to save humanity from forces it doesn't understand, even as they hide from the world themselves."

Damage by Robert Venditti and Tony S. Daniel (October): "A new recruit is given the opportunity to serve his country by transforming into a monster who has only one limit: after one hour, he'll turn back into his human self."

New Challengers by Scott Snyder and Andy Kubert (December): "A revival of the classic concept, a new team of people who have cheated death set out to uncover the mysteries of the world."

What do you think of DC's new, dark offerings? Will these new characters… matter?
