Yesterday, we learned that the 40 page one-shot Dark Days: The Forge by Scott Snyder, James Tynion, Jim Lee, Andy Kubert and John Romita Jr out in June was to have a special foil cover by Jim Lee and Scott Williams. You can watch it move below.
We speculated we might see more of that earlier in the year, in the lead-up to Greg Capullo and Snyder's Metal.
But a side effect of that is the Final Order Cut-Off date, which retailers must meet to be sure of a) getting copies and b) not having to pay Diamond a reorder fee has been moved up from the 22nd May to this Monday, the 9th of May.
So if you want this foil-stamped goodness, comic book stores, you might need to get a wriggle on.
DARKNESS COMES TO THE DC UNIVERSE WITH THE MYSTERY OF THE FORGE! Aquaman, The Flash and more of DC's pantheon of heroes suspect Batman of hiding a dark secret that could threaten the very existence of the multiverse! It's an epic that will span generations-but how does it connect to the origins of one of DC's most legendary heroes?
The great comics event of summer 2017 is about to begin courtesy of superstar writers Scott Snyder and James Tynion III and illustrated by a master class of comics artists: Andy Kubert, Jim Lee and John Romita Jr.! You do not want to miss this one!
