DC Comics Reveals “Forever Evil: Blight”

Posted on October 5, 2013 at 7:48 am by Tyler Waterman

Forever Evil is the event that just keeps giving. After the currently-running eight-part main Forever Evil title, the entirety of Villains Month being tied to the event, and the three main tie-in books Forever Evil: Arkham War, Forever Evil: Rogues Rebellion and Forever Evil: A.R.G.U.S., you’d think that would be all the evil DC could offer.

Turns out, Forever Evil is just getting started.

Along with everything I listed about, DC has now revealed another side of Forever Evil, known as Forever Evil: Blight. This portion of the event alone will encompass another eighteen comics, spread across titles like Constantine and Justice League Dark. Here’s a checklist so you don’t get lost:

PART 3 – TRINITY OF SIN: THE PHANTOM STRANGER #14
PART 4 – CONSTANTINE #9
PART 5 – TRINITY OF SIN: PANDORA #6
PART 6 – JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK #26
PART 7 – TRINITY OF SIN: THE PHANTOM STRANGER #15
PART 8 – CONSTANTINE #10
PART 9 – PANDORA #7
PART 10 – JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK #27
PART 11 – TRINITY OF SIN: THE PHANTOM STRANGER #16
PART 12 – CONSTANTINE #11
PART 13 – TRINITY OF SIN: PANDORA #8
PART 14 – JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK #28
PART 15 – TRINITY OF SIN: THE PHANTOM STRANGER #17
PART 16 – CONSTANTINE #12
PART 17 – TRINITY OF SIN: PANDORA #9
PART 18 – JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK #29

The premise is pretty simple. The massive number of villains in the world, along with the subsequent loss of so many heroes, has upset the balance of good and evil in the DCU. Evil is now very much in the lead, so much so that it’s taken on a physical manifestation: enter Blight.

As Constantine searches for the rest of the Justice League Dark, Blight does everything in its power to stop him, and John rapidly realizes he won’t be able to defeat him alone. He’s forced to bring together what looks to be the Justice League Dark 2.o, with the likes of Swamp Thing, Nightmare Nurse and all three of the Trinity of Sin (Pandora, the Question and the Phantom Stranger.) But in a world with nothing but villains, can it really be possible to stop the manifestation of evil itself? Starting October 23rd, we’ll begin to find out. In the meantime, check below for a look at several upcoming covers and interior spreads that will be a part of this massive event within an even massive-er event!
