DC is putting on a “Villains Month” this September with most of their titles taking at least a .1 detour. While the merits of this idea can and have been discussed elsewhere, we have seen some interesting news with the solicits for the not one, but two Teen Titans issues for the month, which you can check out after the jump.


TEEN TITANS #23.1: TRIGON
Written by MARV WOLFMAN
Art by CAFU
3-D motion cover by EDDY BARROWS and EBER FERREIRA
On sale SEPTEMBER 11 • 32 pg, FC, $3.99 US • RATED T
He is the ruler of six kingdoms of pain, suffering and agony—but the one world that evades Trigon is Earth. Trigon’s influence has been spread across worlds by his sons, but it wasn’t until he conceived a daughter of Earthly origin that the monster finally had an heir who could aid his quest. Now, with all the world’s heroes missing— is this the final victory of Trigon?

TEEN TITANS #23.2: DEATHSTROKE
Written by COREY MAY and DOOMA WENDSCHUH
Art by ROBSON ROCHA
3-D motion cover by EDDY BARROWS and EBER FERREIRA
On sale SEPTEMBER 18 • 32 pg, FC, $3.99 US • RATED T
One of the deadliest men in the world has a secret: his family. Slade Wilson lives to kill, but can even Deathstroke the Terminator balance his home life with a complicated hit?

These were initially announced over at Comic Vine, along with a Marv Wolfman interview, but that’s only part of the story. Marv Wolfman is a large part of the story, returning to a title he made famous and to Trigon, a character he straight up made (both of those along with George Pérez). We don’t yet know how long he will be on the book though, whether it’s only the one issue or if he may continue after the fact. Of course, this still isn’t the entire story, as the writers on the Deathstroke issue are writers from an entirely different area. Corey May and Dooma Wendschuh are co-creators and co-writers of the Assassin’s Creed video game series making their debut in the world of capes. Putting them on Deathstroke seems like a good move, and I am happily looking forward to Villains Month, gimmick and all.

    Trigon looked so much more evil and menacing in his old incarnation.
