The press release follows:

Media Release — Don’t miss the start of “The Year of the Villain,” in DC’S YEAR OF THE VILLAIN #1, 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 — all for just $0.25!

In DC’S YEAR OF THE VILLAIN #1, 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.

And our heroes will fail us.
