YEAR OF THE VILLAIN continues THE OFFER in the pages of BATMAN & THE OUTSIDERS #3, CATWOMAN #13, HAWKMAN #14, JUSTICE LEAGUE ODYSSEY #11, RED HOOD OUTLAW #36, SUPERGIRL #32 & SUPERMAN #13!

One of the biggest things to sweep across the DC Universe continues this Wednesday, as Lex Luthor starts to build an army of the DC Universe’s most notorious bad guys!

We’re telling you now, Third Eye Faithful, the stuff that DC Comics has planned with YEAR OF THE VILLAIN, and everything that will be spinning out of it — is HUGE — and the mayhem all begins this week in JUSTICE LEAGUE #27 with the first of the highly anticipated “OFFER” prelude tie-ins.

The fun continues with BATMAN AND THE OUTSIDERS #3, Ousted from power and stripped of wealth, Ra’s al Ghul is a broken man. But Lex Luthor has a plan for how the Outsiders could be Ra’s’ new League of Assassins!

Continuing THE OFFER, CATWOMAN #13, “Come now, Selina. Still playing the hero? Stop pretending you’re something you’re not.” It’s Lex Luthor’s words versus Catwoman’s will in this chapter of “The Offer”!

 

 

 

 

 

And, then in HAWKMAN #14 Carl Sands returns as the new, improved Shadow Thief! Newly upgraded by Lex Luthor, he’s now the undisputed master of shadows.

Meanwhile, Hawkman continues to be haunted by horrific memories of his past lives.

Could Shadow Thief be the cause of his nightmares? Or is it something more sinister?

 

 

 

And in JUSTICE LEAGUE ODYSSEY #11, with the fate of the Ghost Sector and the trillions of lives it contains at stake, Darkseid begins the cosmic process to activate Sepulkore and restore himself to his previous immeasurable power. Can the Justice League crew stop him…or—unthinkably—must they actually help him?

 

 

 

 

 

After that, in the pages of RED HOOD OUTLAW #36, what can Lex Luthor offer former sidekick Jason Todd? Sidekicks…broken, battered and catastrophically dangerous sidekicks. The Teen Titans they’re not!

 

 

 

 

 

In the pages of SUPERGIRL #32, if Brainiac is in the Hall of Doom, why is Lex Luthor upgrading an old Brainiac drone body? And why is the drone calling itself the true Brainiac?

 

 

 

 

 

Closing out the YEAR OF THE VILLAIN tie-ins this week, SUPERMAN #14, it’s Superman, intergalactic hero!

A major chapter in the galaxy-spanning “Unity Saga” begins as Superman reluctantly takes the lead in a quest for peace bigger than he has ever tried before. It’s Superman, Superboy, Supergirl and a cast of thousands in a fight to keep the universe intact.

But it’s this issue’s final page that will have fans everywhere talking. It’s a moment almost a thousand years in the making…

Deadly plans, murderous schemes and evil dealings. Each of Lex Luthor’s offers means doom for the heroes. So why is Lex now talking to Lois Lane?

 

Don’t forget to collect the special Cover B Villain Portrait Variants for THE OFFER!

In celebration of the awesomeness of DC Bringing on the Bad Guys with THE OFFER, they’re doing a special COVER B variant for each issue which features a killer close-up portrait of one of the iconic bad guys featured in the crossover!

Make sure you snag each one for these three books this week for normal cover price!

To do so, the Imperials assemble six of its most despicable prisoners-a turncoat, a skin eater, a sorcerer and his bodyguard, a serial killer, and the Devil’s Son-the only ones who can stop the end of the new world.

They are Hell’s Half-Dozen. Join JUSTIN JORDAN (LUTHER STRODE) and REBEKAH ISAACS (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) for REAVER-a dark, grim fantasy for a post-Game of Thrones world.
