The comic collective of The Comic Mint, Sad Lemon, 7ate9, Amorphous Ink, and Golden Apple are proud to present our variant for DC’s Dark Nights: Metal #1 by Francesco Mattina. Mattina produced a painting of Batman and The Joker that is impressive even for his lengthy resume, but the team was also delighted to see his prowess with a pencil, so much so that we have decided it needs to be shared with the fans in its purest form. In addition to the dressed and virgin version of the painted cover, we will be offering a sketch set with a virgin as well.
However, as we know fans don’t like to be forced to buy a stack of books just to get the version they want, we’re making them available separately.
The painted set will be limited to 600 and will include dressed and virgin versions. The sketch set will also be limited to 600 and will include dressed and virgin sketch versions. The trade dressed sketch cover will be limited to 1200 total copies. The regular painted cover will be limited to 3000.
In addition, The Comic Mint will be doing a 250 copy “Ultimate Edition” of the “Unmasked Batman” cover which will all be graded CBCS 9.8.
The books will go on sale on all platforms Saturday, July 15th at 1:00 PM Pacific/4:00 Eastern. Pricing will be announced earlier in the morning, but fans will be able to pick up both sets together for less than most retailers price 3 book exclusive sets.
