Personally, I really hate the naysayers on this forum. It’s a real downer.
But I just finished forcing myself to complete the Metal miniseries event. And it was pure awfulness.
The art was consistently good. No complaint there. But the writing was reminiscent of fanfiction that we all wrote in the sixth grade.
Going in, I knew very little about the story. I knew they found another universe, filled with evil versions of Batman. And I had seen some of the artwork, so I had an idea of what to expect. But our main characters were so far off from my decades of experience. I don’t know…
I was hoping this would be a launching point to get me revitalized into DC’s contemporary offerings. But honestly, I think this has scared me off. If this is the epitome of modern DC storytelling, I’m not missing much.
I believe this is the same team that did Batman 52 with the Court of Owls storyline. I’ve never been a huge Batman fan, but he’s central to modern DC. So I was thinking of checking it out. Was that storyline as bad as metal?
