In connection with Villains Month, DC Comics is releasing Limited Edition 3-D Motion Covers, all of which have been taken over by the best Villains in the business.
Here is an exclusive look at the BATMAN #23.3: THE PENGUIN, BATMAN AND ROBIN #23.3: RA’S AL GHUL AND THE LEAGUE OF ASSASSINS and DETECTIVE COMICS #23.2: THE SCARECROW.
And here is the curious thing: DC, rather than providing artwork, provided me the comics themselves and said they wanted me to take my own pictures, which would demonstrate the lenticular 3-D aspect better.
I asked them if they were sure they wanted that. They said yes. So I did my best. After the jump you can see the other covers and there’s even a short video I shot which probably works a lot better than the stills in conveying the effect. Photography is not my strongest suit ever (if indeed I have one, at all).
As for the comics themselves: the Penguin is a nice self-contained thing that’s mainly designed to show how this funny looking fellow is terrifyingly brilliant and ruthless behind the scenes. The Ra’s one goes back to the 13th century, and shows him through the ages causing things like World War I. Scarecrow’s sows the seeds of a bigger tale, with the good Dr. Crane playing other villains off against each other in preparation for a forthcoming battle with Bane.
All three will be available tomorrow.
