First Look at FOREVER EVIL: A.R.G.U.S. #1

The FOREVER EVIL universe continues to expand!

You’ve already gotten first looks at the upcoming miniseries FOREVER EVIL: ARKHAM WAR and FOREVER EVIL: ROGUES REBELLION. Today, we’re giving you a sneak peek at the final FOREVER EVIL miniseries, FOREVER EVIL: A.R.G.U.S.

“Steve [Trevor] and Wonder Woman have a history," writer Sterling Gates teased to USA TODAY earlier this week. “He feels like, ‘If she were dead, I would know it.’ So he starts this hunt to try to find the Cheetah and then along the way he's going to discover some really dark secrets about A.R.G.U.S. that even he didn't know about and he was the director for a few years.”

“They're the Advanced Research Group Uniting Superhumans, and that's the public face of A.R.G.U.S.,” Gates continued. “But privately and quietly, they've been spying on the Justice League this whole time. What did they learn from that? Why is that their M.O.? Why were they telling the public they were trying to unite superhumans when in actuality they were wiretapping them?”

“I'm equal parts excited to see what Sterling gets to do with FOREVER EVIL: A.R.G.U.S. and jealous that he's the one that gets to do it,” said Matt Kindt, who was previously listed as the miniseries’ writer. “But apparently I do have to sleep at some point and can't write every DC comic book ever. Not that I won't keep trying.”

Illustrated by Philip Tan and Jason Paz, FOREVER EVIL: A.R.G.U.S. #1 arrives in stores on October 23rd. Take an exclusive first look at the issue’s interior art in the gallery above!
