DC’s Bad Guys Take Over In September’s ‘Villains Month’

Last year, DC Comics celebrated the anniversary of its New 52 launch with a month full of zero issues. On its second anniversary in September, the publisher is handing its books over to the bad guys. “Villains Month” will spin out of this summer’s “Trinity War” crossover, according a DC press release. Each book in the line will replace the title hero’s name with a villain’s name and be a #1 issue of sorts. Also: Lenticular 3D covers, no joke.

All that will lead into the next big DC event launching in September, Forever Evil, a seven-part miniseries by Geoff Johns and David Finch. More info about Villains Month and Forever Evil, as well as a look at those legitimately pretty cool covers, after the jump.”One of the strengths of the DC Universe has been the strength of the rogues gallery. Often times they’re as famous – if not more infamous – than our heroes,” DC co-publisher Jim Lee said in the press release.

Co-Publisher Dan DiDio added this about the covers: “It’s an incredible 3D effect that shows depth of field on the covers. It’s the full cover stock, so it’s not anything that’s been glued on. More importantly, it’s actually pliable and soft to the touch – it’s a brand new technology and we’re going to be the first ones debuting in this fashion.”

Johns said this about Forever Evil: “It’s literally everybody. I don’t even know if there’s anybody not in it. We’re really exploring what darkness means and the different kinds of darkness that are within these villains.”
