Death Metal Gets New One Shots Including The Last Stories of the DCU

We know that Bryan Hitch is writing and drawing a 48-page one-shot for DC Comics' Death Metal yet to be announced – but which one? We have a few advance listings of some Death Metal collections that reveal a few unannounced titles that may provide some suggestions:

  • Dark Nights: Death Metal Infinite Hour Exxxtreme! #1
  • Dark Nights: Death Metal The Multiverse Who Laughs #1
  • Dark Nights: Death Metal The Secret Origin #1.
  • Dark Nights: Death Metal The Last 52: War of the Multiverse #1
  • Dark Nights: Death Metal The Last Stories of the DCU #1.

These will join the previously-announced one-shots:

  • Dark Nights: Death Metal Legends of the Dark Knights #1
  • Dark Nights: Death Metal Speed Metal #1
  • Dark Nights: Death Metal Trinity Crisis #1
  • Dark Nights: Death Metal Multiverse's End #1
  • Dark Nights Death Metal Guidebook #1.

You know, when 5G was still going to be a thing, we said that DC Comics was going to be telling some 'final' tales for the characters – such as the final battle between Batman and the Joker. I don't suppose there may be any room in The Last Stories Of The DCU to fit them in? Here are the listings for the collections – and a couple of covers too.
