Just in time for Free Comic Book Day, this special comic features three brand-new stories from a lineup of superstar talent—and each tale serves as a prelude to some of the biggest DC events of 2018!

First, find out how The Joker reacts when he discovers Catwoman has turned her back on crime and plans to marry his archnemesis. Can the Clown Prince of Crime stand to see Batman happy? Writer Tom King and artist Clay Mann set up the events that lead to BATMAN #50!

Then, DARK NIGHTS: METAL shook the DC Universe to its deepest foundations—now it’s time to rejoin legendary writer Scott Snyder, along with all-star artist Jorge Jimenez and co-writers James Tynion IV and Joshua Williamson, for the prelude to JUSTICE LEAGUE: NO JUSTICE! Discover what universe-shattering mysteries have emerged from the most wondrous and chaotic corners of the cosmos to hunt the Justice League in DC’s summer blockbuster event!

Plus, get your first glimpse at Superman’s new world in this exclusive preview of the upcoming six-issue miniseries MAN OF STEEL, written by Brian Michael Bendis with art by José Luis García-López. With Truth, Justice and the American Way all under attack, both Superman and Clark Kent find there’s never been a more important time to stand up for what they believe in.

Summary from Goodreads.

DC Nation #0 gives us 3 short stories that prelude to 3 major stories from DC Comics in 2018.

The first is around The Joker waiting for an invitation to Batman and Catwoman’s wedding. This sure sets the tone as to what both Batman and Catwoman are going to have to face in the coming weeks before they tie the knot!

The second was around the Justice League and what looks like will be one of their hardest battles so far. This leads into the Justice League: No Justice, which after this brief glimpse into what is to come, the series title definitely has me worried as to how things will turn out for the league.

The final story was the prelude to the upcoming Man Of Steel miniseries which left more questions than answers. I am sure that these will be answered in this 6 issue series. This one was the least interesting out of the three, mainly because it left me wondering what the point of it was. That being said, with it only being a 6 issue miniseries, Man Of Steel is going to be a very intense and full-on story.

We also get a sneak-peak at The Unexpected, one of the new monthly series to come out of Dark Nights: Metal series. All 8 of the series to come out of the Dark Nights: Metal series focus more unknown characters so this sneak-peak gave some valuable insight as to what this series will be like.

At the end we get a two page spread that explains what DC Nation is about, and offers a glimpse as to what is going to be included in the first issue. DC Nation is DC’s way of collecting the current month releases, as well as giving you an inside look into goes on behind the scenes at DC.

Worth the read for these 3 short stories.
