DC First Look: Gotham City Villains Anniversary Giant #1

‘Gotham City Villains Anniversary Giant’ #1 is a 100-page celebration of Batman’s greatest villains.

Gotham City may be protected by the Dark Knight, but the home of Batman and his allies is also plagued by some of the deadliest, most nefarious villains in the DC Universe! In this oversized anniversary giant, DC proudly presents tales of Batman’s deadliest foes written and drawn by some of the biggest, most exciting names in comics!

Celebrated Villains, Celebrated Storytellers!
This anthology marks the anniversary year of Oswald Cobblepot, a.k.a. The Penguin and is celebrated by a special Penguin/Catwoman story by acclaimed actor, screenwriter, and producer Danny DeVito, who immortalized the character in the 1992 hit movie Batman Returns. DeVito teams up with fan-favorite artist Dan Mora (Detective Comics) on a fun heist story/romance between The Penguin and his “crush” from Batman Returns, Catwoman.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

This anthology also celebrates the anniversaries of other Bat-baddies, with stories spotlighting:

  • The Scarecrow (story and art by Wes Craig)
  • Poison Ivy (written by G. Willow Wilson, art by Emma Rios)
  • Ra’s al Ghul (written by Phillip Kennedy Johnson, art by Riccardo Federici)
  • Talia al Ghul (written by Nadia Shammas & Joshua Williamson, art by Max Raynor)
