Welcome to DKN Roundtable where the staff gives commentary and opinions about the latest Batman news. Here, we look at the latest issue of the Bat-centric DC Comics event comic Dark Nights: Metal #6. On the panel are DKN writers Eric Lee and Steve J Ray.
How did you feel about the ending to Dark Knights?
Steve: As one of the few who knew most, if not all of the characters, and found the whole story easy to follow – I know I’m in the minority – I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Like I said in my review for the issue, it may not be literature, but it’s great fun.
Eric: I liked the ending for the most part. But, man, there were times when I felt like [writer Scott] Snyder needed more pages to let some scenes breath. That is probably my biggest complaint about issue six.
How did you feel about the way the Dark Batmen were taken out? Do we even see many of them taken out?
Eric: I wasn’t sure if it was not seen on purpose or because of Snyder not having enough time to show it, but I think we don’t see any Dark Batmen actually dying on page… except for the Red Death and maybe the Drowned?
So…Wonder Woman? Do you like Snyder’s portrayal of this tough, but inspirational figure?
Any thoughts on the Monitor being the captive of the Batman Who Laughs?
So, the Joker Dragon = Nightmare fuel?
Eric: I’m not going to lie, the Joker Dragon really creeped me out when I first saw it on the cover.
Steve: I want a Joker Dragon plush toy!
Eric: I’d highly recommend NOT giving that toy to any children
‘Batman Always Wins.’ Have truer words never been spoken?
So it seems like the Source Wall was destroyed? What do you think will happen next?
The epilogue scene: What is up with the Swamp Thing’s bow tie? Or Mr. Terrific putting FairPlay on his tuxedo jacket?
Highlights or lowlights of the finale?
How excited are you for Snyder’s No Justice and Justice League run?
Steve: One of many. You’re DKN’s fashion police, and I’m definitely the grammar police.
