The events of Dark Nights: Metal have transpired, and the Omega Titans have been thrust into the DC Universe after the destruction of the Source Wall. They’ve begun their attack on the main universe, and some of the most feared and vile villains in the DCU are running amok. The Year of the Villain (YotV) is upon us!
YotV is a cross-over story arc that takes place in many of the monthly titles solicited by DC. On top of the monthly books where the story unfolds, we’ve been given One-Shots of some of the more popular and noteworthy characters involved in this dark tryst.
Year of the Villain #1 begins the arc with some spectacular cover art by Greg Capullo, Stanly “Artgerm” Lau, Alex Maleev, & Jim Cheung. There will also be One-Shots for Black Adam, Black Mask, Harley Quinn, Lex Luthor, Ocean Master, The Riddler, Sinestro, and…. the Dark Star of the DC Universe… The Joker!
If you’re a fan of the darker side of DC, or just love to collect beautiful artwork by supremely talented artists, get your hands on these Year of the Villain One-Shot variant covers!
Stay tuned for all known, and upcoming, cover announcements!
