Now DC Is Using .1 Issues? Batman Villains Month Solicits Revealed

Body

Guessing by the following September solicits for the Batman comics for Villains Month it seems DC Comics will be going the decimal point route instead of launching all new #1's.

Maybe they didn't follow how well that worked for Marvel.

Most likely they are going this route because a majority of the villains titles won't be going on to a second issue, though some of them are looking to get their own series possibly.

Each issue will also feature a 3D gimmick cover, so the following images we are guessing are not final.

Update: Looks like the issues will have a "#1" listed on the covers, but will be the main title's ".1" issue as seen in the 3D covers.

Update #2: Joker 3D cover revealed.
