DC Comics HOSTILE TAKEOVER shows us what happens WHEN THE BAD GUYS WIN this November – collect all 21 of the limited edition acetate transforming TAKEOVER covers!

This November, the DC Universe becomes a very different places as the efforts of LEX LUTHOR throughout the YEAR OF THE VILLAIN come into full bloom, and a HOSTILE TAKEOVER begins!

In this special month, each DC hero’s title will be literally taken over by its villain, with a special story focused on that bad guy, as DC counts down to something truly epic — something that will put every character, hero and villain alike, into a state of Crisis — and leave the DC Universe changed as we know it!

While we can’t go into detail about what will be coming after the events of HOSTILE TAKEOVER, we can tell you this: it’s going to be the biggest thing to hit the DC Universe in years, and where it’s going to take DC is going to be bigger than ZERO HOUR, bigger than 52 & ONE YEAR LATER, bigger than NEW 52, and yes, bigger than REBIRTH!

What we can tell you is NOW is the time to get into the DC Universe as the road to what’s coming begins to appear brick by brick, and it all starts with the bad guys, Third Eye Faithful, as Lex Luthor’s army of super-charged super-villains take control!

Where does HOSTILE TAKEOVER start & what’s the schedule of release? Find out with our HOSTILE TAKEOVER Checklist!

Kicking off on 11/6/19, HOSTILE TAKEOVER begins in BATMAN #82, as the iconic Bat-Bad Guy BANE takes center stage, and all hell breaks loose. This BANE-focused issue sets the tone for all that’s to come as the DARK KNIGHT struggles to break the iron grip that Bane has put on Gotham City.

And, then from there, the fun continues JUSTICE LEAGUE #35, as Lex Luthor’s master plan for the villains of the DC Universe is revealed in full!
