In November, the bad guys win! The Year of the Villain reaches its next deadly phase with "Hostile Takeover" -- as the heroes of the DC Universe are defeated by their greatest foes.

The triumph of evil over good will be represented with a series of two-layer acetate covers in November, which will see DC's heroes literally replaced by their villains - Action Comics is taken over by Lex Luthorand Justice League by the Legion of Doom, for example. The top layer of the cover features the villains' Hostile Takeover of the book's title, showing off their newly empowered status quo. The second layer, retaining each series' familiar logo, will reflect the storyline events that led to the hero's defeat.

All of November's Year of the Villain acetate covers are advance solicited in the August DC Previews and are currently open to order, offered at their regular cover price of $3.99.

Here are the Hostile Takeover acetate covers coming in November:
