DC Comics recently tweeted a teaser of their new series, with the ominous words ‘Justice falls to the Great Darkness… Dark Crisis is coming’ and that’s all we need to know that something major is about to happen.
Writer Joshua Williamson says:
Dark Crisis is an epic DCU event about legacy. It will have all the giant, fun cosmic battles and Multiversal set pieces, but it’s not about reboots, retcons, or rewriting time and space. At its core it’s about the characters and the relationships that we’ve seen built over DC’s great history. Dark Crisis spins out of Justice League 75 ‘DEATH OF THE JUSTICE LEAGUE’ and connects all the story threads across the DCU since Infinite Frontier #0 in a major way. Unifying the new legacy of the DCU as we honor the classic. You can’t miss it!
