DC Comics Presents: “Convergence” Week Eight (5/2015)

Logo - DC Comics - Convergence

Hello readers and welcome to the final installment of the DC Comics “Convergence” overviews. You have safely arrived at chapter eight which is the last of these narratives about the series. For those new to the program, the “Convergence” titles have been running for the past two months and were two issues apiece in addition to a single “Convergence” issue which is now up to its own eighth edition. With the second issues we are getting expanded issues that feature several pages of teaser for what we can expect in the new DC Comics Universe. If you are still missing some issues, don’t worry these extra pages are not the same in each title. There are also variant covers by Chip Kidd on each of the second issues. Let’s get down to the premise from publicity and the cover art. I’ll close it up with thoughts of my own as usual.

Convergence #8: All the heroes of the DC Universe unite to face a crisis of infinite proportions – but when all is done, there can be only one reality. But will even that survive the battle?

Hey there readers we are now at Week 7 of DC Comics’ “Convergence” storyline and this is the penultimate installment of the series as it ends next week. We’ve already noted how it wasn’t looking as though “The New 52” would be coming back after this was all said and done and now that I see the upcoming June solicits I can say that it does not look like it. We can discuss more about that later on or in chapter eight. For now please enjoy the latest batch of titles and get yourself down to the comic store so you get copies before they are off the stands. As always we are using provided press for premise and creative teams along with art. Each of these titles has two covers and the issues outside of the main “Convergence” title is expanded and gives a look into the upcoming DC Universe.

Alright now we are cooking with gas into these second chapters from the exciting “Convergence” series. I am a few issues behind in my own reading of course but that is based on my having been running around like a madman over the last couple of weeks. As a matter of fact, as you read this I am on the fourth day of a seven in a row shows to attend for the music review side of the website. Am I exhausted yet? Oh no, not at all (loosely translated into “oh hell yes I am”) but lets get right on down to the sixth installment of the series.
