DC is about to get a Convergence!

On November 3, DC Entertainment announced its next major event: Convergence.

DC Senior Vice President-Sales Bob Wayne and Senior Vice President- SVP Sales and Business Development Derek Maddalena described Convergence as “one of the most epic and inclusive events ever constructed.” It touches upon every facet of DC Comics’ rich publishing history. Readers will get to experience the DC multiverse like never before —hundreds of heroes, hundreds of villains, numerous worlds, and universe-altering events in one place, one time. Convergence comprises a weekly comic book series that begins on April 1 with issue #0 and ends with issue #8 on May 27, as well as 40 brand-new 2-part mini-series to be published throughout April and May.

An exclusive feature article in USA Today provided additional details and a teaser image, shown above.

Convergence is born from the April 1 finales of the Earth 2: World’s End and The New 52: Futures End weekly series. In this new storyline, Brainiac holds cities hostage from various timelines and planets that have ended. He brings them in domes to a planet outside of time and space, and is now arranging an experiment to see what happens when everyone is put into a giant salad bowl.

The scope is nothing short of epic.

Convergence will also introduce the new villain Telos, who “is born of Brainiac and this mysterious planet — even taking on traits of that world — ‘but becomes a character unto himself,’ says [DC Co-Publisher Dan] DiDio.”

The 40 titles and creative teams involved with Convergence will be announced in the near future, and should finally touch on some key questions that have been raised by fans since The New 52 was introduced: where does previous continuity fit into The New 52? Did Doomsday kill Superman? Did Bane break Batman’s back? Is there a Donna Troy? Is there a Justice Society of America? Co-publisher Jim Lee explains those questions will finally start to be answered. “What we’re really addressing is they all exist, and have existed, and exist within the framework of The New 52,” Lee explains. “Convergence is in many ways the most meta epic event we’ve done.”

New comic writer Jeff King will be scripting and storytelling for the main Convergence plot line. King is known as an executive producer and head writer of USA’s White Collar TV series, and his previous TV credits include the sci-fi shows Stargate SG-1 and Continuum.

The first issue of the Convergence event will be solicited in the January PREVIEWS and all current DC Comics titles (except The Multiversity, children’s, and Digital First titles) will be on hiatus during April/May.
