It started back on Free Comic Book Day, and now the conclusion of “Year of the Villain” is at hand with the upcoming Hell Arisen. December 18 is going to be a big DC Comics week.

Here’s the official press release:

DC’s “Year of the Villain” begins its sinister conclusion!

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!

From alternating Batman & Green Lantern as childhood Halloween costumes, to getting punched in my adolescent heart by Love & Rockets, to playing convention sidekick to the legendary Len Wein, the comics medium and characters feel like a part of my DNA.
