    Default New Tales from the Dark Multiverse incoming

    Two new Tales from the Dark Multiverse have been announced, staring Sinestro during Blackest Night and Ted Kord during Infinite Crisis.

    I'm strangely intriguied by the second. Ted Kord given such importance, even in a one-shot, sounds good to me.

    Hm maybe Ted will take Lord up in his offer in this retelling? Either that or he’ll shoot Lord in the head lol.

    Good Lord, I was already tired of the Dark Multiverse even before Metal ended.

    At least is about two characters I care about but I sure as hell don't trust Tynion to write Ted.

    I hope these Tales from the Dark Multiverse do well. I love elseworld type stories and reimaginings, and this has a different sort of niche from the usual Black Label content. I just hope they're easy stories you can get into even if you haven't read the original version - being reliant on knowing the ins and outs of the original stories could hurt this.

    these are shaping up to be very interesting. I'm probably gonna check out the Sinestro issue, I'm still waiting for a what if with a character I thoroughly care about tho.

    please don't end up being "What If...Batman" like elseworld used to be in some regards. I hope there's a diverse selection of characters and stories they use.

    Seems like it, which is pretty neat. Much as I love the more traditional Elseworlds, DC definitely could use a line that explores and twists older classics. Hope they do some based on stories I've read, would love a What If on Batman Year One or Long Halloween for example. Honestly I'm thinking of finally getting around to reading the Knightfall trilogy and Death of Superman story soon in anticipation of the first TftDM books. Which actually is probably one of the benefits for DC in doing this, not only do they sell new stories but said stories might renew interest and sales in the older original stories.

    Well, it kind of depends on who the characters you care about are - seems DC's focusing on twisting the big events first, so which characters see use kind of depends on if they were in a big event or not. Personally I've got my fingers crossed that at least Steel will cameo in the DoS one, but who knows. At least Lois is the main, even if it seems she'll take the evil path - love Lois, but evil Lois? Really need one of my fave heroes like Steel in there to balance it out. Or maybe it'll be like Red Son Superman and she'll not really be evil despite being more gray/antagonistic.

    I expect a lot of techno-babble and narration, on-top of Ted probably ending up like Future Tim.

    While we've only got four titles announced so far, it does seem like they're heading towards a diverse selection. Lois Lane, AzBats and son of Bane or something, Sinestro, Ted Kord. Not exactly your usual suspects. As much as I've loved all the old Batman Elseworlds I've read to date, I've got to agree on wanting a healthy mix. So far it looks like a promising start though. I mean hell, we're getting freaking Ted Kord Blue Beetle heading one of these.

    Of the four, the Lois Lane centered DoS intrigues me the most.

    Basically a failed Batman who went over the edge because of the stress of the job.

    To be fair, when Tim goes over what happened in his timeline, none of the Robins come out looking all that well on the Batman front .
