A Very Sweary Etrigan The Demon In Death Metal #7? (Spoilers)

This Tuesday sees the publication of Death Metal #7, the final chapter of the DC Comics event sequel by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo, setting up both Future State, The DC Omniverse and the Infinite Frontier. The wrinkle in the comic book's publication is that copies of the comic have been sold by a number of comic book stores, before the street date, as a result of double-shipping and early shipping of DC Comics titles over the last week or two.

Which may be the closest that a mainstream DC superhero comic book series has come to such a naughty word.

Gone, gone, f*** of man…
