by Olly MacNamee
It’s not just Batman Last Night on Earth #1 that’s getting previewed this week. It seems that DC Comics have followed that up with your chance to grab your copy of the one-shot Year of the Villain for free on Comixology or simply by reading it right here right now. Its the one-shot that kicks off DC’s big plans for the rest of the year as the DCU seems to hurtle towards its demise with increasing speed. All from the minds of DC’s top talent, as you’ll read for yourselves below. With FCBD this weekend too, it feels like Christmas for comic book fans, so ‘Happy Holidays” I suppose.
Evil is winning! Lex Luthor and The Legion of Doom conspire with Cosmic Gods, bending mankind toward a dark destiny. Elsewhere, the scourge of Leviathan spreads unchecked, seizing power in every corner of the world. And all the while the Batman Who Laughs busies himself in the shadows, aligned with no one-yet with sinister plans for all. The carnage starts here as the bad guys take center stage in “The Year of the Villain,” the most treacherous event in DC Comics history. Some act with united goals, others with plans selfish and secret, every one of them on a monstrous collision course against Batman, Superman and the heroes of the DC Universe. And our heroes will fail us. Don’t miss the start of “The Year of the Villain,” featuring the talents of writers Brian Michael Bendis, Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV, artists Jim Cheung, Alex Maleev and Francis Manapul and cover artist Greg Capullo
