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!
Batman’s #1 nemesis who debuted in Batman #1 way back in 1940, and perhaps the most famous villain in comic book history, The Joker gets the royal treatment in this lot of One-Shot titles.....
Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy will explore the relationship between these two femme fatales in the aftermath of Heroes in Crisis. Bestselling and critically-acclaimed writer Jody Houser (Faith, Star Wars, Amazing Spider-Man) brings us this 6-Issue mini-series that should put years of innuendo and speculation to rest, finally giving readers a detailed account of the intimate personal relationship between these two iconic villainesses. The story will be illustrated by the amazingly talented Adriana Melo, whose illustrations in the Star Wars: Empire series, as well as her work on DC’s Birds of Prey will assure that this mini-series will be both textually and visually captivating. There are sure to be myriad Exclusive Retailer variants, so keep this page in your favorites to be up-to-date on all of the spectacular covers to come.
The final issue before the landmark Spawn #300, Spawn #299 brings us yet another homage to McFarlane’s own work. The ‘Toddfather’ pays tribute to his own Amazing Spider-Man #299 on the 3 awesomely retro retailer covers.

Alone at the top…
After the release of record-breaking Spawn #301, Todd McFarlane’s most famous creation stands alone as the longest-running creator owned comic in comic book history. If you’ve been on this journey following the exploits of Mr. Al Simmons since 1992, or jumped onto the hell-wagon later on, you’ll be bursting at the seams to get your hands on this instant classic. I never thought that I’d still be reading this title 27 years after picking up the iconic first issue. Spawn #301 is a testament to the talents and contributions of everyone involved in bringing us this beloved hero. First as the cornerstone of the creator-founded Image Comics, and now as their most veteran torch bearer, Spawn is as exciting as ever.
This 48-page ‘Giant’ features McFarlane returning to pencil and ink the interior pages. I can’t tell you how exciting it is to see the original master at the helm of his creation. Greg Capullo, Jason Shawn Alexander, Clayton Crain, Jerome Opeña, & Francesco Mattina join in to celebrate this ground-breaking achievement. As with Issue #300, there will be at least 18 retailer variants to collect and choose from.

After 25 years, Dave Sim’s ‘Cerebus the Aardvark’ will have to make some room on the mountain top as the longest-running independent series in comic book history. Spawn #300 finally drops after 27 years of build-up and anticipation, and Todd McFarlane’s most famous creation doesn’t show signs of slowing down. With an upcoming movie in the works, and no word from McFarlane himself that he has any plans of retiring this long-running title, Spawn continues to amaze and delight.
Spawn #300 (a 72-page deluxe) will continue the story arc from the previous issue, featuring new villain ‘The Rapture’. Written by McFarlane and Scott Snyder, who is one of the most celebrated Spawn writers of all-time, this will surely be a fantastic read. There are already 18 announced covers featuring artwork from McFarlane, Greg Capullo, Jason Shawn Alexander, and others. If you’re a Spawn collector, you’ll have plenty of options to choose from.
