Tomorrow sees the second round of DC’s Villains Month books hitting the shelves of comic book stores. Before you make the trek to the shop, you can check out some previews for five of the new villainous books. We’ve got previews for The Riddler, the return of General Zod, Brainiac, Black Manta, and the Court of Owls. You can read the full solicits for each issue below, but here’s a quick rundown of the writers for each book: Riddler is by Scott Snyder and Ray Fawkes; Zod is from Greg Pak; Tony Bedard tells us a story about Brainiac; Geoff Johns is joined by Tony Bedard as they show us the Black Manta; and James Tynion IV lays out an early Court of Owls story. All of these titles will be vying for your hard earned money tomorrow. Which ones will you be picking up?
