DC to Devote A Month to Villains

034.DCC.JokerFC.1.0September 2011 held the launch of the New 52 reboot, September 2012 dove back in time with Zero Month, and now September 2013 will be the home of DC Comics’ Villains Month. Every New 52 title will be taken over by a rogue for a done-in-one tale and have “.1” added to its numbering, acting as a sort of aside from the main series.

“September has always been a big month for us and we look for an opportunity every year in September to do something big that really redefines the line and invites anyone who hasn’t been following comics to step right in,” DC Entertainment Co-Publisher Jim Lee said in a press release. “We launched the New 52 with all-new continuity and new costumes, Zero Month was all about origins of our heroes, and now the villains are taking over. One of the strengths of the DC Universe has been the strength of the rogues gallery. Often times they’re as famous – if not more infamous – than our heroes.”

All of the Villains Month covers will feature a “3D motion image” on the front and back covers as well.

“It’s called a 3D motion cover and it’s essentially artwork that’s been separated onto different layers, so when you hold the cover, which is a premium stock cover, and you slightly rotate the comic book left or right or up and down, the images move a bit,” Lee added.

“It’s an incredible 3D effect that shows depth of field on the covers,” said DC Entertainment Co-Publisher Dan DiDio in the same release. “It’s the full cover stock, so it’s not anything that’s been glued on. More importantly, it’s actually pliable and soft to the touch – it’s a brand new technology and we’re going to be the first ones debuting in this fashion.”
