DC VILLAINS MONTH Solicits: BATMAN & ROBIN, DARK KNIGHT, BATMAN, DETECTIVE COMICS 'Groups'

Date: 03 June 2013 Time: 02:41 PM ET

Update 3: Thanks to the new Parallel Worlds geek blog at the NYPost (officially launching June 5th), we now have what we assume is the final Bat-related group (unless there's something Batgirl, Nightwing, Birds of Prey, or Red Hood specific, of course), the Batman & Robin collection. See the new additions with Two-Face, Court of Owls, Ra's Al Ghul, and Killer Croc getting the spotlight by clicking through!

Update 2: DC Comics is up with another group of four Batman titles on their own website, calling this one The Dark Knight group.

Update 1: Now our friends at CBR have premiered the covers and solicitations for the Batman group, where that title also receives four replacements. Each of these replacements for one title will come out weekly, and it should be noted that the $3.99 price tag is only for Villains month - books that were $2.99 before will go back to their regular price in October.

Original Story: Thanks to Crave Online, we have the first batch of official solicitations for September 2013's DC Comics Villains month, in hi-res and single frame still-shots. The trade dress, seen in the first released covers, is not seen on these images.

The replacements for Detective Comics are first up, with four editions. As DC Co-Publisher Dan DiDio said earlier Monday, there will be 52 Villain titles in September, but they won't be a 1:1 swap for the titles published in August; certain titles won't have a villain replacement, while others have more than one.

Stay tuned to this link for more throughout the coming days.
