Dark Nights: Metal Gets An Omnibus Announced For 2023

DC Comics has published the series. The Deluxe Edition hardcover. The Absolute Edition. But the question asked across the boards is, will DC ever publish a Dark Metal Omnibus? Reddit is full of people asking. An Italian company RW Lion did publish one – but that was in Italian. What about in English? The answer, in January 2023… is yes. All 744 pages of it.
