DC’s Forever Evil month reveals more villains and covers

DC Forever Evil Harley Quinn

Yesterday, DC Comics announced that September would kick off the Forever Evil villain month, with a villain taking  over each of the main titles and a 7-issue mini-series to tie the event together.

Yet it seems one villain taking over those titles is not enough, with at least the Bat-titles showing a .1 through .4 issue for the month, so that the maximum amount of sales can be made every villain gets his fair share of the Bat. Bruce Wayne will be exhausted by the end of September, we imagine!

Here’s a list of some of the titles announced so far:

Action Comics 23.1 – Cyborg Superman #1
Batman #23.1 – Joker
Batman #23.1 – The Riddler
Batman #23.1 – Penguin
Batman #23.1 – Bane
Batman and Robin #23.1 – Two-Face #1
Batman: The Dark Knight #23.1 – TheVentriloquist #1
Batman: The Dark Knight #23.2 – Mr. Freeze
Batman: The Dark Knight #23.3 – Clayface
Batman: The Dark Knight #23.4 – The Joker’s Daughter
Detective Comics 23.1 – Poison Ivy #1
Detective Comics 23.2 – Harley Quinn #1
Detective Comics 23.3 – The Scarecrow #1
Detective Comics 23.4 – Man-Bat #1
Earth 2 #15.1 – Desaad #1
Flash 23.1 – Grodd #1
Green Arrow #23.1 – Count Vertigo
Green Lantern 23.1 – Relic #1
Justice League #23.1 – Darkseid #1
Justice League Dark #23.1 – The Creeper #1
Justice League of America #7.1 – Deadshot
Superman 23.1 – Bizarro #1

Not enough for you? USA Today says Forever Evil will also have several tie-in books to go with the many gubbins:

Forever Evil: Rogues. Writer Brian Buccellato (The Flash) and Patrick Zircher (Suicide Squad) put the spotlight on the Flash’s colorful and infamous gang of Rogues, led by Captain Cold — a particular favorite of Johns, the former Flash writer, as well as Finch. “I just love his mask,” the artist says. “He looks very steely and a little bit dead in the eye, which is very evil.”

Forever Evil: Arkham War. “The biggest story with Bat-villains you’ve ever seen,” as Johns describes it, features the creative team of Peter Tomasi (Green Lantern Corps) and Scot Eaton (X-Men).

Forever Evil: A.R.G.U.S.Matt Kindt (Mind MGMT) pens a title featuring the government agency Advanced Research Group Uniting Superhumans. DC comic fans have seen increasingly shady things the group’s been doing, and Steve Trevor will be learning about those as the audience does. “His heart is good,” Johns says, “and if ARGUS has a chance of rising above what it is right now and becoming a heroic force in the future, it’s up to Steve Trevor.”
