Tomorrow's Dark Crisis On Infinite Earths #5 kicks off after last month's splash with Pariah bringing back the full DC Comics Multiverse one more time. With Pariah working with the Great Darkness and the return of the Justice League from death, or their sidelined pocket worlds, being part of his big plan.
1. Voices In His Head
2. An Order To Everything
However, you may want to read Dark Crisis: The Deadly Green #1 one-shot also out tomorrow, first, as well as previous tie-in issues of The Flash.
Or it might get a little confusing.
3. Army Manoeuvres
And Dark Crisis: The Dark Army isn't out yet. So no worries there.
And, yes, tomorrow's Batman #128 happens long before all of this. Honest. Say, anyone wants to prove that Batman #128 has to have happened after Justice League #75, just to screw everything up, feel free. But for those following our Dark Crisis gossip from a month back…
4. Back To The Patch
Beast Boy has lost an eye, looking more and more like Deathstroke
5. Spawning A New Look
Deathstroke is looking more and more like Spawn. Well he had done a deal with the devil.
And we also said…
6. It Is Great After All…
Dark Crisis: The Deadly Green will explore the idea expressed in the last issue that The Great Darkness is not the baddie. That Pariah is controlling it and influencing it, and that it is Deathstroke, who is spreading the Great Darkness amongst the population, the heroes and the villains. It has no agency of its own…
Talking of which, they may be published on the same day. But you will want to read Swamp Thing before Dark Crisis #5
And while dismissing some entertaining but false DC 4Chan gossip, we added;
Green Arrow doesn't die in Dark Crisis On Infinite Earths #5. Indeed he is reunited with Black Canary.
7. Green And Black Together Again
Much more to come, but this will do you for now. Dark Crisis On Infinite Earths #5 and Dark Crisis: The Deadly Green #1 are both published by DC Comics tomorrow.
