What could be blacker than the Blackest Night? From the pages of Dark Nights: Metal comes a Dark Multiverse retelling of the Green Lantern event that changed the DC Universe forever...only this time, the Black Lanterns win! Now, 23 days after the apocalypse, witness the rise of Sinestro as the Limbo Lantern! Trapped between life and death as a White and Black Lantern, Sinestro seeks to save the universe—or end his miserable life—once and for all! Joined by Dove, Lobo, and Mister Miracle, the last living beings in the universe will put everything on the line to give their world one final chance.

Summary of Stephness: Steph only appears on the variant cover.

Behind the Scenes: On October 22, 2019, artist Kendrick Lim posted his variant cover set done for Comics Elite as a retailer exclusive for this title: https://www.instagram.com/p/B36Fc0dA6TI/

Later that day, the retailer put the issue on sale: https://www.comicselitecomics.com/collections/blackest-night-kendrick-lim-exclusive/products/dark-multiverse-blackest-night-1-kendrick-lim-exclusive-11-6-20?variant=30929634033767

They also put the virgin (textless) zombie variant version on sale: https://www.comicselitecomics.com/collections/blackest-night-kendrick-lim-exclusive/products/dark-multiverse-blackest-night-1-kendrick-lim-virgin-11-6-19

The choice of Steph as Batgirl wielding a Black Lantern ring was very reminiscent of the Black Mercy inspired vision of Steph as a Blue Lantern fighting Black Lanterns in Batgirl #24.
