Check Out the Solicitations for the First Four Issues of DC’s Convergence

DC Comics (via EW) have revealed the solicitations for the first four issues of their new event series “Convergence” which you can check out below.

“Convergence” is set to begin on April 1 and runs through May 27. The main series will be written by Jeff King of “White Collar” and “Stargate SG-1″ fame with help from Dan Jurgens on the zero issue and an outline from Scott Lobdell. The series reveals big bad Brainiac has taken cities from both planets and timelines that no longer exist and trapped them in bottles, much like the very famous bottle city of Kandor. The event kicks off when Brainiac takes all of these different cities and pours them into one big dome, including the worlds of previous DC events such as “Zero Hour,” “Red Son,””Kingdom Come,” “DC One Million,” and many more (which we’ve broken down over here).

The regular DC comics titles will take a two month hiatus and return at the start of June, but in the meantime, 40 two-issue tie in comics will be published, which you can read about by clicking here, here, here, and here.
