Comic Book Review: Dark Days: The Forge #1


Questions... questions... so many questions. Dark Days: The Forge #1 is one mystery posed to the reader after the next. Writers James Tynion IV and Scott Snyder throw us directly into the center of the action and intrigue coupled with the combined artistic talents of Jim Lee, John Romita, Jr., Andy Kubert, and others.


I read Dark Days: The Forge #1 three times and still feel like there's more to go back and soak in. By the end of the issue, you'll quite possibly be suffering from what I'll refer to as "major-event-exhaustion." You might also be absolutely giddy and ready to fully jump on board for the roller-coaster ride. The other choice is cautious optimism, as I am experiencing a mixture of both. Either way, it's a worthy read and has some striking artwork that varies from one panel to the next.


Aquaman, The Flash, and other many others suspect Batman of hiding a dark secret that could threaten the very existence of the multiverse in Dark Days: The Forge #1! It’s a mystery that will span generations. How does it connect to the origins of one of the most legendary heroes?


Dark Days: The Forge #1 is rated T+ for Teen +. It contains violence, profanity, and frightening and intense scenes. Dark Days is a perfect description of the look and tone of the book. However, I don't see where it has any content any worse than what we see in regular T-rated comics.


James Tynion IV and Scott Snyder wrote Dark Days: The Forge #1. Andy Kubert, Jim Lee and John Romita Jr. provided art for the issue. It was released on June 14th through DC Comics. The book is 40 pages long.

Dark Days: The Forge #1 is available now in print and digital editions.

Issue #9 Rating: 🌟🌟🌟
