You can feel it in the air as fall begins to impose itself on the last remnants of summer weather and a new evil incarnation of the Dark Knight emerges from the Dark Multiverse and into the pages of Batman: The Dawnbreaker.

This is the third and latest corrupted caped crusader to make himself known as DC rolls out their series of seven one-shot tie-ins to the bizarro event series, Dark Nights: Metal.  Each bold weekly solo title spotlights one of the sinister Batman mutations spawned out of the nightmarish borders of an insidious interdimensional zone.

The previous two books, Batman: The Red Death and Batman: The Murder Machine have already dropped and now this lethal, green-shadowed iteration is set to strike. Written by Sam Humphries and Ethan Van Sciver, it imagines an alternate realm where Bruce Wayne became a vengeful member of the Green Lantern Corps. with a glowing power ring enabled with lethal force.

Check out the 5-page preview in the gallery below and chime in on how you're feeling about Dark Nights: Metal and these seven distorted demons of destruction. Batman: The Dawnbreaker blasts into comic shops on October 4.
