DC Comics’ Dark Multiverse continues to spread it’s influence in November, as two more classic event stories get a very dark twisted re-telling. Following October’s Tales from The Dark Multiverse: Batman: Knightfall #1 and Tales From the Dark Multiverse: The Death of Superman #1, DC has announced that the early 2000’s stories Infinite Crisis and Green Lantern: Blackest Night will get their own extra sized one-shots in the dark multiverse.
Tales From the Dark Multiverse: Infinite Crisis #1 follows heroes & villains after the world has fallen to the necrotic Black Lanterns, and is described as:
Writer Tim Seeley (Nightwing) and artist Kyle Hotz (Swamp Thing: Roots of Terror) team up with cover artist Lee Weeks (Batman) to retell the tale of the Green Lantern event that changed the DC Universe forever, only this time the Black Lanterns emerge triumphant! Twenty-three days after the cataclysm, Sinestro, trapped between life and death as a White and a Black Lantern, emerges as the world’s last hope—the Limbo Lantern! In order to save the universe or end his life, he’ll need the help of some unlikely survivors—Dove, Lobo, and Mister Miracle—all of whom will put their lives on the line to give their world one final chance!
Tales From the Dark Multiverse: Infinite Crisis #1 on the other hand features a threat to the heroes from within and is described by DC as:
Writer James Tynion IV (Justice League, Justice League Dark) and artists Aaron Lopresti (Wonder Woman) and Matt Ryan (Damage) team up with cover artist Lee Weeks for this dark turn on DC’s mega-event Infinite Crisis. The destruction of Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman, the rise of Alexander Luthor and Superboy-Prime, and the rebirth of the Multiverse all began with Ted Kord, the Blue Beetle. Kord saw it all coming and died with secrets that could have saved the world. But in the Dark Multiverse, Blue Beetle survives, and with the death of Maxwell Lord by his hand, Ted sets off events that irreversibly alter the lives of not only the Justice League, but also his best friend, Booster Gold. In trying to prevent a crisis, Blue Beetle becomes the crisis, and the Dark Multiverse will never be the same.
Both books are 48-pages and cost $5.99, with $1 copies of Blackest Night #1 and Infinite Crisis #1 available on the same day these new issues as they drop on November 13 and November 27 respectively.
