DC Comics has announced plans to collaborate with Ozzy Osbourne, Megadeth, Ghost and more on a ‘Band Edition’ of their 2020 series Dark Nights: Death Metal. The seven issues with the ‘Band Edition’ covers will be published monthly, beginning in March, in eight countries: France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina and Turkey. There will also be a Collectors’ Omnibus Edition featuring additional content, which will also be published in Russia, Poland, Czech Republic, South Korea and Japan.
DC Comics said in a statement: “Representing a cross-section of metal music from across genres and generations, each special edition will feature a variant cover spotlighting a different metal band, an introduction from the band and exclusive interview.”
Dark Nights: Death Metal was launched in June 2020 as a sequel to the 2017-18 series Dark Nights: Metal. The original series introduced fans to the Dark Multiverse, where alternate, mutated versions of popular DC heroes can be found.
