Here comes the Dark Multiverse, now in paperback! For years, Batman has been tracking a mystery. He's quietly been pulling a thread, conducting research in secret laboratories across the globe and stowing evidence deep in the Batcave, hidden even from his closest allies. Now, in an epic story spanning generations, the heroes and villains of the DC Universe--including Green Lantern, The Joker, Wonder Woman and more--will all find out what secrets he's discovered. Secrets that could threaten the very existence of the Multiverse! The unforgettable team of Scott Snyder, James Tynion IV, Jim Lee, John Romita Jr. and Andy Kubert combine forces to set the stage for the epic Dark Nights: Metal.
