DC’s Year of the Villain Delivers Battle-Damaged Logo Covers in August

In 2019 it’s good to be bad for the villains of the DC Universe. “Dark Gifts” is the featured theme for August, as the vilest villains in the DC Universe take up Lex Luthor’s offer to be the ultimate versions of themselves, destroying their arch-foes—DC’s greatest heroes—in the process. 
Fans will see immediate evidence of just how much trouble DC’s heroes are in with a series of covers featuring “battle-damaged” versions of their logos.

From Action Comics to Wonder Woman, these covers, combined with the distinctive “Year of the Villain” cover banner, provide a significant visual cue to the epic struggles within each issue, struggles that the heroes may not be able to overcome. As the Year of the Villain continues to escalate throughout September and beyond, the cover logos will sustain increased damage, leading to a line-wide villain takeover in November. Fans should be sure to check out the following titles when they hit shelves in August: 

  • ACTION COMICS #1014 – Cover by Brandon Peterson (on sale August 28)

  • THE TERRIFICS #19 – Cover by Dan Mora (on sale August 28)
  • WONDER WOMAN #76 – Cover by Jesus Merino (on sale August 14) 

Continuing from July, August will also feature more of the card stock variant covers. These variants are priced at one dollar more than their battle-damaged standard counterparts and feature artwork by some of comics’ top cover artists, including Stanley “Artgerm” Lau, Joshua Middleton, Gabriele Dell’Otto, Yasmine Putri, and others.
