SET DETAILS

BRILLIANCE CARDS: These high-end variants of Base and Chase Cards are printed on foil substrate with different colors of Deco Foil (Red, Gold, Black) and crash-numbering. Rare The Batman Who Laughs Brilliance Cards are each one of a kind and feature a unique symbol for the character.

SINGLE, DUAL, AND TRIPLE AUTOGRAPH CARDS: This set includes Single, Dual, and Triple on-card signatures from the incredible writers and artists that created the comic book series and one-shot tie-in issues.

 SKETCH CARDS: These unique one-of-one cards are hand-drawn by illustrators from around the globe.

CHASE CARDS

Chase 1: “The Dark Knights” (9 cards): Seven of these nine cards individually highlight the Batman-fused characters known as The Red Death (fused with Flash), The Murder Machine (fused with Cyborg), The Dawnbreaker (fused with Green Lantern), The Drowned (fused with Aquaman), The Merciless (fused with Ares), The Devastator (fused with Doomsday) and The Batman Who Laughs (fused with Joker), all dangerously drawn by Jason Fabok. The final two cards feature group shots with amazing artwork by Greg Capullo and Doug Mahnke.

Chase 2: “Dark Arts” (18 cards): These 18 cards showcase some of the incredibly dark and twisted alternate cover art for the “Dark Nights: Metal” mini-series created by industry-leading illustrators like Francesco Mattina, Greg Horn, Jock, Bill Sienkiewicz, and Tim Bradstreet. The Brilliance Card versions of these images will be printed on foil, then stamped with a variety of colors to create new variants.

Chase 3: “Divine Metals” Puzzle (9 cards): A nine-card puzzle showing a ready-for-battle Batman surrounded by the signals of the Dark Knights. The Brilliance Card variants feature Deco Foil that will enhance and showcase the artwork, penciled by Greg Capullo with Jonathan Glapion inks, like never seen before.

Chase 4:  “Dark Signals” (6 cards): These six cards highlight the symbols of the Dark Knights. Batman merging with other iconic characters is represented with symbols like the trident-based “A” of Aquaman resting over a flying bat or the jagged lightning bolt of The Flash splitting a pair of bat wings. Formed in foil, each Dark Signals card will contain an embossed, coin-shaped version of the signal alongside imagery of the Dark Knight it announces.

BASE CARDS: The Base Set for this release includes a variety of artwork, pulled from the pages of the tie-in, one-shots, and mini-series issues, and features artwork from some of the biggest names in the comic book industry.
