World News – AU – Dark Nights Death Metal Rise of the New God # 1 Review


As an event, Death Metal wasn’t usually my cup of tea I was pretty excited when it started, but all the stories added didn’t do much to make me feel like this Actually, a lot of what he did kept me apart So it’s safe to say that I didn’t have high hopes for Rise of the New God And although it wasn’t my favorite book of all time, I was pleasantly surprised by the result

I was surprised in more ways than one, especially the fact that Darkest Knight has very little to do with this book at all He’s got his name and his cover photo You could even say the brash for everything that happens is because of him But if you thought the book was about The Darkest Knight, you’d be wrong, too In fact, it’s really the story of Chronicler And even though it features planet movements , the story is not as action packed as it would make you think either

Chronicler is exactly as the name suggests He writes the stories of doomed universes and proceeds to record the next and the next He is meant to be an impartial observer One who simply writes events and continues History then follows him that he visits characters like the Psycho Pirate, Virl Dox and even Metron himself trying to gain knowledge and context for the universe and how he got to the point of such destruction Each successive visit intrigues him more and more and makes him break the rules to know exactly what makes this universe of potential vibrate

Much of his curiosity centers around the potential wasted in the universe This is where the story gets very meta-based Much of his dialogue centers around where things went wrong, the demanding context and the question « how could this world have become so bad when it is so full? » If that sounds a bit like all the rants you’ve had about DC over the past year or so, then you get the same feeling about it that I do Chronicler reads a lot like a spokesperson for readers who feel that things have been on the decline for a while I really enjoyed this aspect of this story I feel like Tynion has done this on a number of occasions in some of his other books, expressing his or readers’ frustrations with certain tapes drawn through characters So in some ways I’ve seen this before, but it also plays into what I want to see which is someone else as frustrated as me Does it deserve a whole book ? I don’t really think so But it’s a bit cathartic to read

It wouldn’t be a story without some sort of growth or change, so of course these questions and answers fend off some inspiration in Chronicler and some hope despite the darker start to the story, the hope is the theme of this book, hope in a world so full of possibilities that it cannot die After so many stories that leave me sad or frustrated, it’s good to see one of them actively advocate for a more promising outcome I like this idea and I will always be someone drawn to stories of hope I also like that it results from some frustration with how things came to be This point Again, this reflects a lot to me as a reader, both irritated and hopeful for the future

As optimistic as it sounds, I’m not sure it really warrants an entire book Especially not a giant-sized spinoff story He’s got some good feelings, but there’s very little in this story that gives me feel like there’s a reason we’re being told this There’s no stakes, not in a universe we’ve been told is dying and doomed Although hope to keep a universe alive is a good trope, the book never tells me how it will do it Should I assume it’s in Chronicler’s memory? His book? Or does this hope somehow work to physically change the fate of the universe? Perpetua and the Darkest Knight fill the backdrop of this story as they destroy world after world in their battle, and nothing that is happening here does anything to stop it or even slow it down. Again, I can’t help but ask, why am I reading this book? Why choose a story that is not about both the titular character and the one I really know? What are the issues? And when I look there, I find very few

While I’m still torn by the story itself, I can confidently say that I loved the art Jesus Merino makes the book beautiful There are a lot of radical scenes from the universe and the fight that takes place between the two titans, and honestly they are really pretty to look at The colors of Arreola bring the pencils to life and really make this book look clean and charming Merino does a great job with little details too Chronicler looks like a pain to draw on multiple pages, and yet its design never looks sloppy or untrained It’s always detailed and even though it’s in the background, key features are easy to spot

In addition to the main story, Rise of the New God includes a bonus tale Written by Bryan Hill and illustrated by Nic Virella, he returns with the Green Lanterns after the events of Multiverse’s End

The art here is a lot lighter than that of the main story, and it works well for the short film it presents.It looks very open and, with its clean lines and bright colors, it matches the most hopeful tone in history It also doesn’t lack for detail or texture, especially when the group meets The Darkest Knight Where the lanterns are bright and hopeful, it’s dark and static

This short film is actually just a glimpse of how the Green Lanterns and the people they saved during Multiverse’s End come to Earth-0 It’s a little story of hope and leadership , and I think it’s kinda fun Unfortunately, it doesn’t have a lot of stakes either as it’s sandwiched between the stories and part of its ending is spoiled in the main story of New God. you want to know how the lantern escaped The Bleed, this story will give it to you

There are aspects of this book that I enjoyed It plays with some interesting ideas, and I love the meta feel at times I even love the message of hope, how it strives to ‘being a book about inspiration even in the darkest hours But it never really goes out of being a filler story to find real stakes in Death Metal’s greatest narrative That more than anything leaves me feeling ask why we even have this book It’s also hard to recommend If you like books about inspiration and revitalizing love for something, this is a good book to take If you want something that takes your life forward. bigger story, there isn’t much here for you
