Doomsday Clock will follow hot on the heels of another major DC event, Scott Snyder's Batman: Metal, a story which also has universe-altering potential.
Although the two events fall close together and feature some of the same characters, at no point will they intersect or overlap.
DC also appears to have taken measures to avoid a bad case of event fatigue, with both stories standing alone within the publisher's current continuity.
Snyder told GameSpot...
"You can read one or the other or both and be fine either way. They're both in the real continuity of the present day DC Universe."
Yeah, we'll be reading both thanks, Scott.
