I don’t talk about comic books as much as I should on this site, but that’s going to change, I have review access for a few comic book companies now so expect more reviews soon. Sadly DC isn’t one of those companies which makes covering them hard because you all know I don’t like to just regurgitate press releases. Unlike Marvel at least DC gives me a little more meat to work with.
With that said DC has released all the initial covers for their upcoming Year of the Villain Event and they look quite tasty. If I can convince DC to give me some books, I will review every one of these issues. I’ve hated the last few DC Events because they were all basically Injustice clones. This event excites me because its back to Super Heroes vs. you know Villains. Not evil clones of themselves. Check out the official Press Release and Cover Gallery.
