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.

The Joker figure is expected as part of the second wave of Batman Classics following the first wave's rollout in July, while the "Batusi" Bats is slated to be a San Diego Comic-con 2013 exclusive
By now many fans have read DC's Injustice: Gods Among Us prequel comic and have a basic understanding of the character motivations in NetherRealm's upcoming post-apocalyptic fighting game that pits heroes and villains against... villain-y heroes and heroic-ish villains?

This week, "Death of the Family" came to its conclusion in Batman #17, putting an exclamation point on the first big Joker story since DC's relaunch in 2011.

Animated GIFs have been a big part of the internet for a while, but within the last year or so GIF artists have really upped their game.
