“Forever Evil” indeed. I understand, after some sleuthing at the Phoenix Comic con, that may well be the name of the DC Villains Month that Bleeding Cool first broke last year, in September.
Another spectacular photobomb there from John Layman, on the adult film actress Siri, who cosplayed as Power Girl at Phoenix Comic Con.
Which was, handily, next to Chew writer John Layman‘s booth. Giving him the opportunity to… photo bomb.
