DC Readers Name the 'Villain of the Year' in New One-Shot

DC's Year of the Villain is set to kick off later this year as a revived Lex Luthor powers up the publisher's deadliest villains. December solicitations reveal that, when that event is in full swing, fans will get an opportunity to determine for themselves just who is the villain of the year.

The solicitation for the upcoming Harley Quinn: Villain of the Year one-shot, by Mark Russell and Mike Norton, teases readers voting for who will take the titular crown, though the website listed in the solicitation does not work at this time. Additional information will likely be released in the coming weeks. You can read the solicitation and see the cover for Harley Quinn: Villain of the Year #1 below.
