DC Villains Stage Hostile Takeover in November, Unleash Acetate Covers on Readers

Posted by July 19, 2019 Comment

DC’s Year of the Villain isn’t done unleashing gimmicky variant covers on the DC Universe just yet! Following the cardstock variants for Year of the Villain and Lex Luthor’s “offer,” DC is planning another line-wide event in November with Hostile Takeover. This won’t surprise you, but Bleeding Cool scooped the name of this event way back in April, though now we have details, thanks to DC’s presentation at the Diamond Retailer Lunch at San Diego Comic-Con.

In November, the villains will take over in Hostile Takeover, which will result in 22 November titles being graced with Acetate covers. Now that’s a diabolical plot if we’ve ever heard one! And to avoid a fiasco like the lenticular issues of years past, these covers will be solicited a month early, with the October comics.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
