The first "Big Event" news for the Rebirth era of DC Comics is on hand, as the publisher revealed via its recently June solicitations (as seen in Newsarama) that their "warm up" to the big storyline will happen with two one shots entitled "Dark Days" - written by Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV, with artwork by Jim Lee, Andy Kubert, John Romita Jr., and more. "Dark Days: The Forge" happens on June 14, while "Dark Days: The Casting" will be released on July 12.
The cover to "The Forge" looks to be centered around The Dark Knight detective himself - Batman. While no specifics were given on what the plot is for "Dark Days" - it is according to CBR set to "reveal the dark underbelly of the DCU" and lead on to an unspecified DC Event.
