Hey there comic fans, we are back once again with yet another installment of the rundown of titles hitting the stands for DC Comics massive initiative “Convergence”. In case you are coming in late on this whole process, the story is that “The New 52” titles are all on hold while numerous characters across worlds vast and varied are here once more and fighting for survival. One has to wonder just how they are going to let a lot of these time honored representations of their universe go away again after the eight week series. Week Five begins the second issues of the multiple titles isses display and this is the first bunch of those second issues. Each one of the issues outside of the “Convergence” title itself will be extra sized and will give us a sneak peak as to what is going to happen in the DC Universe afterwards. Here we go.
Convergence #5: The threat to the Multiverse grows as Brainiac confronts his creation Telos, and the surviving heroes of Earth-2 are stuck in the middle! Plus: A specific moment in time signals a call to all the cities that have been battling each other! Witness the final fates of the winners and losers of Convergence!
Wow is 2015 moving fast or what? We are already in April and now that March has hopefully left Winter in its past we can Spring ahead (nyuck nyuck) and get to the comic book store to peruse the offerings from DC Comics. As per usual, the press comes from their publicity side along with the colorful cover art but I will return at the close to speak about some of the stuff I think is the coolest of the cool. I’m going to keep this brief since there are a LOT of titles to browse based on the “Convergence” happening. Here we go with the first week of releases for this storyline.
