Over the next few months, worlds are colliding in the DC Universe. As in literally colliding, because DC Comics’ two-month mega-event Convergence is seeing what happens when multiple timelines collapse in on one one another. These aren’t just any timelines though; they’re plucked from across the DC multiverse, including the New 52, Flashpoint, Crisis on Infinite Earths, and many more. Although Convergence #0 didn’t really tell us much that we didn’t already know, this week the story is heading off to the races as the official storyline, as well as other interconnected titles, begin making their way to store shelves.
Today, we have an exclusive preview of Convergence: The Atom #1, starring the DCU’s resident mighty mite, The Atom, who is coming all the way from the Pre-Flashpoint era to throw down with Deathstroke! However, judging by the voices in Ray Palmer’s head, Deathstroke might be the least of his worries.
Convergence: The Atom #1 is written by Tom Peyer and illustrated by Andy Owens and Steve Yeowell. Take a gander at the cover by Steve Dillon while you’re at it.
Here is the official synopsis:
“STARRING HEROES FROM THE PRE-FLASHPOINT DCU! There’s a mysterious voice in Ray Palmer’s head! Does that mean The Atom is going mad? To find out what’s really going on, he’ll have to go down a road that will pit him against the ever deadly Deathstroke!”
Be sure to check out the full gallery below, including a variant cover by Chip Kidd.
Convergence: The Atom #1 is available on April 8, 2015.
