DC Comics Villains Month Solicitations and Cover Images

As many of the cover images, creative teams, and solicitation info for DC's September Villains Month event as we can possibly fit in one place. Still being updated...

Well, DC Comics certainly isn’t making it easy on us, are they? In the wake of their announcement of the line-wide event, Villains Month, as well as the limited series Forever Evil, DC has scattered cover images and solicitation info across the internet like so much kryptonite in the wake of a planet’s explosion. Alright, perhaps that metaphor is a little extreme. So, while we wait for the dust to settle, we’ve done our very best to get you as much of these solicitations and cover images in one place. Some of these have images but no solicitations, some of ’em just have creative teams and nothing else…but we’ll update this as more information becomes available.Justice League group solicitations courtesy of DC Comics)
