This week, DC kicked of “Villains Month” along with “Forever Evil” #1, the first issue of the highly anticipated miniseries that promises to “reshape the scope and characters of the DC Universe forever”. The Justice League are dead, not likely for very long, but until then things are going to get ugly in the DCU. Below you can take a look at David Finch’s pencil work for “Forever Evil” #2, which drops on October 2nd, 2013.
“Honestly, what appealed to me with this project, and what appealed to me with JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA, was working with Geoff Johns. That was what I wanted out of it, first and foremost. Being able to draw a whole book full of villains and something as dark as this that goes to the places it does was a huge bonus, obviously. And drawing the Crime Syndicate was a really nice treat. I’m a big fan of Frank Quitely’s version that he did a number of years ago [in the graphic novel JLA: Earth 2],” said Finch.
“I think some of the original costumes from years ago are pretty cool, so I wanted to take some elements from both of those, and talking to Geoff especially about who the characters were. No writer I’ve ever worked with has been more succinct about getting down to what the character’s aspect is, and I think that really affected the look of the characters for me.”
