Every summer brings with it a plethora of comic book crossovers, massive event books, and all manner of ways in which the powers that be shake up the status quo in their respective fictional universes. One of my favorites in recent memory was Forever Evil, a DC Comics crossover event that saw villainous versions of the Justice League from another dimension coming to Earth-1 to cut a swath of terror right through the heart of the New 52. With the Justice League all but defeated (or in some cases, seemingly murdered), it’s up to Steve Trevor and the surviving members of A.R.G.U.S. to save the day and prevent the bad guys from enslaving the world’s citizens. This week, DC Comics is releasing a collected Forever Evil: A.R.G.U.S., containing the first six issues, by Sterling Gates, Jay Leisten, Jason Paz, and Neil Edwards.
So, to celebrate, we have an exclusive gallery of never-before-seen character and uniform designs by Brett Booth and Gene Ha, which you can peruse in the gallery below.
Here’s an official synopsis of the release:
The villains have killed the Justice League and decimated A.R.G.U.S.’s headquarters. Only Steve Trevor and the surviving A.R.G.U.S. agents can pick up the pieces and save the civilian populace from unthinkable evil! Tying into the epic crossover event FOREVER EVIL by comics superstars Geoff Johns and David Finch, FOREVER EVIL: A.R.G.U.S. explores the DC Universe surrounding the superhuman war! Collects issues #1-6
Forever Evil: A.R.G.U.S. (The New 52) is available on Wednesday, September 24 wherever fine comics are sold.
