A Black And White Peek At Dark Days: The Casting #1 For Next Month

In the light of the unqualified success of Dark Days: The Forge, the same creative team of Scott Snyder, James Tynion, Jim Lee, Andy Kubert and John Romita are putting out the sequel, Dark Days: The Casting that sits between The Forge and Metal. And DC Comics has a preview.

So we get more Hawkman/Thanagar action, The Joker taking down Green Lantern, and what appears to be a Superman/Batman mashup character – something from the Dark Matter Multiverse perhaps?
