Where do worlds go when they die?
The Earthquakes felt round the Multiverse, Superman’s lost days after “Doomed,” the World’s End – all these points will converge as the history of the DCU is spun from a new perspective, the perspective of a mad god and his arrogant child. The biggest story in DC history ties into literally every DC story ever told – and it all begins here. Kingdom Come, Red Son, Wild West Justice League, Captain Carrot and the Zoo Crew – all the worlds you remember can still be found on Telos. Everything matters. Every story matters. Don’t miss the start of DC’s April/May 2015 event with this special issue!
Today marks the final reveal for DC Comics’ Convergence event. The fourth week of the event, running in April and May 2015, will see two-issue limited series that focus on the original DC Comics multiverse: the Pre-Crisis Earth 2, Earth 3, Earth 4 (Charlton), Earth S, and Earth X. There’s also one surprise series - that probably isn’t much of a surprise to anyone paying attention. Newsarama has an exclusive look at the five Pre-Crisis Earth 2 series art, plus information on the other five. The eight weeks of forty two-issue mini-series will run alongside an 8 issue (9 including #0) weekly series by newcomer Jeff King to tie it all together. Multiple worlds from multiple eras of DC's multiverse will come together on Brainiac's Blood Moon to fight for their relevance.
So far we’ve been regressing through time and this week follows the theme. Week one saw the early 2000s pre-New 52 characters featured, week two focused on the 90s “lost generation” characters, week three saw the 80s characters from the Crisis-era, and now week four goes strictly Pre-Crisis. There’s not quite as much theme to each era’s opponents, though there are multiple mentions of Flashpoint as “villains” for week one, Kingdom Come for Week two, and Tangent for week three. Week four sees a couple of Qward Universe invasions, but then mixes things up with battles against various futures like One Million and a post-apocalyptic Jonah Hex (not to mention Futures’ End), and battles against other classic Elseworlds like Red Son and Gotham by Gaslight.
The big exception to the rule is Booster Gold by Dan Jurgens and artists Alvaro Martinez, Raul Fernandez, and Chris Sotomayor. This series will take place on and from “Multiple Earths” with Rip Hunter, Booster, and other time travelers from throughout DC Comics history. Here then are the five Pre-Crisis Earth 2 series with exclusive interior art (that, despite exclusivity is unaltered), plus the full details on the other five series. Notable creative teams include Jeff Parker and Doc Shaner taking a go at the classic Marvel Family in Shazam, Jerry Ordway hitting the classic Infinity Inc., and the aforementioned obvious inclusion of Dan Jurgens and Booster Gold.
