DC Promises Big Changes as "Convergence" Winds Down in May

DC Comics' May solicitations are pretty much all about "Convergence," as the line-wide mega-event enters its second and final month. Though the publisher has announced a slew of new series set to launch following "Convergence," things remain quiet on exactly how DC plans to get there -- though today's solicits offer up some hints.

  • First of all, the description for "Convergence" #8 flat out states that "when all is done, there can be only one reality," indicating that rather than a return to the days when DC's heroes traveled across the Multiverse, we may actually be seeing the doors slam shut on that concept more solidly than ever.
  • The New 52 versions of DC's heroes get involved in the multi-dimensional battle in "Convergence" #7.
  • The second issue of every Convergence miniseries will be "extra-sized," featuring content billed as a "sneak peek at what's coming up in the DC Universe."
  • Jerome Opeña, Ivan Reis, Tony S. Daniel, Mark Morales, Steve Rude, Amanda Conner, Jim Lee, John Romita Jr. and Jill Thompson all contribute variant covers in varying levels of scarcity to the final four "Convergence" issues.
  • The fourth year of DC's breakout "Injustice: Gods Among Us" digital-first series arrives in print, with two issues releasing in May.
  • Ian Edginton and Francesco Trifogli's Vertigo series "Hinterkind" comes to a conclusion with issue #18.
  • "Mad Max" arrives in comics as Vertigo releases the "Mad Max: Fury Road: Nux & Immortan Joe" one-shot, while creator George Miller offers commentary through the "Inspired Artists Deluxe Edition," featuring 2-page spreads depicing the world of "Mad Max" by artists including Howard Chaykin, John Paul Leon, Bill Sienkiewicz, Tommy Lee Edwards and more.
  • Robert Valley's '60s-infused animated take on Wonder Woman, which captivated fans as a DC Nation short, gets her own statue.
