The Crime Syndicate Returns In Year of the Villain: Hell Arisen #1 First Look
by Olly MacNamee
Is it just me of do the Infected seem to resemble a DCU Kiss cover band, what with all that white and black facial markings? The bad boys and girls of DC Comics are here to cause trouble and not to rock out. However, I’m sure with the combined forces of the Dark Multiverse converging, the population of the DCU are in for some crazy, crazy nights. Especially with the return of the Crime Syndicate on the cards too. If they all survive their meeting with Perpetua this is.
Here’s your HUGE first look at black and white art pages from the forthcoming release, written by James Tynion IV with art by Steve Epting.
Lex Luthor has brought Perpetua back from her cosmic grave and restored her power! Now the Multiverse lives in fear that she might wipe out all existence. The only thing that could stop her are the forces of the Dark Multiverse—which means it’s Luthor’s mission to defeat the Batman Who Laughs! But if Batman and Superman couldn’t stop him, what chance does Luthor stand?
Spinning out of the end of the “Justice/ Doom War” in Justice League #38 and the conclusion of the epic “Infected” arc from Batman/Superman #5, DC’s two top villains face off in a battle royal in Year of the Villain: Hell Arisen…and the fate of all reality hangs in the balance!
Year of the Villain: Hell Arisen #1 hits shelves December 18th from DC Comics
