DC Shocker: DC Fails to Credit Creators on Villains Month Covers

Alternate headline: DC Spares Creators Indignity of Being Associated with Villains Month

Source: Twitter

If you're picking up a Villains Month comic from DC, you might notice something different about the covers.  No, it's not that they're made of super-rare lenticular plastic, it's that the creators' names have been left off the covers.  That's right, DC failed to credit a single creator on the covers of this week's Villains Month.

At least one high profile penciller is pretty pissed about it, too.




As Chris Burnham noted, the move was probably due to DC needing extra time to produce the 3D covers and not knowing how many of their creators would walk off books by the time Villains Month was involved.  However, the fact that DC couldn't even add credits to the 2D versions is pretty embarassing.
