Publication historyEdit

Exemplars of Evil was written by Robert J. Schwalb, and published in September 2007.

Cover art was by Ron Spears, with interior art by Jason Chan, Eric Deschamps, Randy Gallegos, Tomás Giorello, Ron Hodgson, Ralph Horsley, Warren Mahy, Michael Phillippi, Eva Widermann, Kieran Yanner, and James Zhang.

The brief that Schwalb received for this project included a selection of nine archetypical villains, which he, Eytan Bernstein, Creighton Broadhurst, Steve Kenson, Kolja Raven Liquette, and Allen Rausch were assigned to develop into more interesting and compelling villains.[1]
