Decades after “The Blight” all but wiped out the human race, Mother Nature is taking back what’s hers, and she’s not alone…The Hinterkind have returned.
From the last, lost corners of the world they come, a myriad menagerie of myth and magic...but these aren’t childhood fairytale creatures. They are flesh, blood and passion, and they have a long-simmering hatred for those who drove them into the shadows: The human race!
Just in time for the holiday season, every Villains Month issue will be collected in a massive deluxe hardcover compilation. Like the DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 and DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 ZERO omnibus editions before it, the DC NEW 52 VILLAINS OMNIBUS will be your complete and comprehensive guide to this year’s exciting and groundbreaking September event.
Villains Month is here, and if you’ve seen our homepage today, you can tell that we’re pretty darn excited about it. Don’t get us wrong, we love our heroes. We want them to win. But the bad guys are just so much fun. You never know what to expect when it comes to our villains, so in a month where the villains have taken over all of our comics…well, the one thing we know we can expect is the unexpected!
Oh, and lots of jokes about “rounding up the villains” here in the Tuesday Roundup. You can expect that as well.
WATER BORED DEPT.
After failing four times in the past, 64-year-old Diana Nyad successfully swam from Cuba to Florida over the weekend. She made the 110-mile journey in just under 53 hours (slightly faster than Amtrak!), and was also the first person to do so without using a shark cage. Clearly, it’s cause for celebration! And for a speech from a water-logged, exhausted senior citizen!
