DC Entertainment has finally released details on Convergence, the two-month publishing event it plans to use to cover the months when it is moving its editorial staff to Burbank next spring. The event will consist of a weekly series and 40 two-part miniseries, launching in April.
The event will include facets from every era of DC’s multiverse, and corresponds with the end of the weekly The New 52: Future’s End, and Earth 2: World’s End series. The story will take place outside space and time, on the question mark below Earth 29 and above Chaos, on the map of the Multiverse, and introduce the new villain Telos.
The weekly nine-part Convergence comic book series will be written by veteran TV producer and writer Jeff King (Continuum, White Collar, Total Recall 2070).
Releasing on April 1, Convergence #0 will be co-written by King and Dan Jurgens (The New 52: Futures End), with illustrations by Ethan Van Sciver (Flash: Rebirth, Green Lantern: Rebirth). Convergence #1 -8 will be written by King, with art by Carlo Pagulayan (Emma Frost, Elektra, Planet Hulk) and Stephen Segovia (Dark Wolverine, Reign in Hell). Covers will be provided by Ivan Reis (Green Lantern, Aquaman) and Joe Prado (Battlestar Galactica, Green Lantern/Sinestro Corps).
