    These were better and more essential to the Death Metal story than I expected. Robin King shows how he killed all the heroes and met up with The Batman Who Laughs. Rise of the New God establishes the concept of the Omniverse and a new cosmic being, the Collector. Infinite Hour Exxxtreme! is about Lobo and while fun is the most skippable of the 5 comics collected in this. These 3 should be read in conjunction with issue #5 of Death Metal. The Multiverse Who Laughs reminds me of DC's old horror comic These were better and more essential to the Death Metal story than I expected.

The Multiverse Who Laughs reminds me of DC's old horror comics like House of Secrets except these stories feature DC's greatest heroes is dark reflections of themselves. It was fun. The Secret Origin is the most essential tale here and the best of all these stories. Geoff Johns returns to write Superboy: Prime again and it's great. These last 2 stories should be read with issue #6 of Death Metal.

Both of those issues were 5-star reads to me, but unfortunately, the rest of this collection was not very good. FINAL RATING FOR THIS COLLECTION = 3.3 STARS I read each of these individually when they were originally released as comic book issues, so here are my reviews for each issue in this collection: Dark Nights: Death Metal Infinite Hour Exxxtreme! Issue #1: 2 stars: I've read every tie-in issue for the "Dark Nights: Death Metal" event, and this was easily the worst. To be fair, though, I am not a fan of Lobo. Dark Nights: Death Metal Robin King Issue #1: 2.5 stars: This was not my favorite thing that I've read when it comes to the "Death Metal" tie-in issues, but it wasn't as bad as "Infinite Hour Exxxtreme." Dark Nights: Death Metal Rise of the New God Issue #1: 5 stars: I loved this issue, and the new Chronicler character that was introduced. This story spoke to my comic book interests. Dark Nights: Death Metal The Multiverse Who Laughs Issue #1: 2 stars: I've read all of the "Death Metal" tie-in issues, and very few are required reading. Some are bad, and you could skip them. Others are good, but not really necessary. Unfortunately, this was one that would be easy (and probably better) to skip. Dark Nights: Death Metal The Secret Origin Issue #1: 5 stars: This was an amazing, single issue. It ties into the bigger event of "Dark Nights: Death Metal," but I thought it was a beautiful story in its own right. In fact, as I type this review, I have finished the main series, and I didn't feel like I was missing much by not reading this as part of the series, however I would highly recommend this issue to fans of DC Comics. A few years ago, I read Superboy-Prime's origin story in "DC Comics Presents" Issue #87, and this "Secret Origin" story goes back to that origin story, and gives us more material from between (and within) the panels. As single-issue stories go, this was my favorite story that I've read in a while.

    The Tie in issue titled Secret Origin about Superboy Prime is the best part of this collection and if there was one tie in to read its that one.

    And lo, the Dark Nights: Death Metal tie-in books came. Some were essential. Some were...not. But all were entertaining in their own right. Collecting five one-shots, this second of three Death Metal tie-ins is a bit more lopsided in that four of the five are kind of important to the main book, compared to the last trade where it was only two or so that were. The Infinite EXXXXtreme one-shot is just fun for Lobo; it does pretend to kind of be important but I think it's literally a one panel refere And lo, the Dark Nights: Death Metal tie-in books came.

The Infinite EXXXXtreme one-shot is just fun for Lobo; it does pretend to kind of be important but I think it's literally a one panel reference in Death Metal itself, if anything. The other titles are much better - Robin King gives some horrible context to the latest evil Batman, and the more you learn about him the worse he becomes. Then Rise Of The New God, Multiverse's End, and Secret Origin are basically Death Metal 5.1-5.3, filling in the fight between Perpetua and the evolved Batman Who Laughs. The Secret Origin is especially poignant, bringing Superboy Prime back into the spotlight for a heartbreaking story from Geoff Johns himself. Of all the Death Metal tie-ins, this collection's probably the most essential aside from the one issue.

The volume collects Death Metal tie-ins that fall between Issues 4-6. There are great issues here that has the origin of Robin King, Lobo battling the Batman Who Frags, and Superboy Prime versus The One Who Laughs. I fanboyed so hard for Superboy Prime. Prime is one of my favorite characters/villains of all time and brought back so many memories of reading Infinite Crisis which is what really solidified my love for comic books. This book gets a 5 star for the Superboy sPrime story alone for me. The other issues are still really fun. I am really surprised how much I am loving the Death Metal event so far.

    Now the issues for The Multiverse Who Laughs are not all that necessary for the over all Death Metal story. "Rodin King", though an interestingly violent expansion of the character, is kind of just an awkward shoe horned issue. "Rise of the New God" follows a cosmic being as they interview certain DCU characters that have had a connection to DC crisises and history. Very informative but kind of unnecessary. Now "The Batman Who Frags" is to me an amazing Dark Knights concept which I loved.

Now "The Batman Who Frags" is to me an amazing Dark Knights concept which I loved. But I was highly disappointed with how unimportant and random the rest of its story was. It could have been a more in-depth look at Lobo's story in Death Metal but instead it was just Lobo nonsense. "Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark Multiverse" had an entertaining intro by Robin King but was then filled with mainly unnecessary stories from the Dark. "Secret Origins" is a good Superboy Prime story but unfortunately does not naturally fit in with the overall Death Metal story.

    Another really exciting volume from the Death Metal series of books! While I enjoyed Metal, Death Metal has been far more spectacularly executed for my taste. This volume primarly tells stories focused around Robin King, varying versions of Lobo, and a really exciting and reward story focused on Superboy Prime. Lobo and SB Prime are the easy winners in this volume but that's not to say the Robin King stories weren't great too. My next Death Metal book is The Multiverse Who Laughs I HIGHLY recommend Another really exciting volume from the Death Metal series of books!

    A bunch of Death Metal side stories. The quality varies, with the entire collection being dragged down by a more boring than usual Lobo issue. Particularly noteworthy are the stories that establish Robin King's backstory, the story that revolves around the omniverse concept, and the fate of Superboy Prime. All three are pretty good stories with some actual weight to them. A bunch of Death Metal side stories.

    *I read all of the Dark Nights: Death Metal titles at the same time, attempting to read them as close to publication order as possible. As such, it was one whole story for me, rather than individual books. Full review in the main "Dark Nights: Death Metal" book.* *I read all of the Dark Nights: Death Metal titles at the same time, attempting to read them as close to publication order as possible.

    Thank goodness the Dark And Edgy™ stories are all collected in one trade (so I know which one I definitely don't need to reread). Thank goodness the Dark And Edgy™ stories are all collected in one trade (so I know which one I definitely don't need to reread).

    The best of the stories was Secret Origin #1. The Superboy-Prime story finally comes full circle for Clark Kent.
