Convergence is coming to the DC Universe and, fittingly, each week more and more pieces of the puzzle behind DC Comics‘ forthcoming two-month event are coming together. The sprawling crossover event, which debuts in April 2015, the thirtieth anniversary of Crisis on Infinite Earths, finds Brainiac collecting cities, planets, and entire worlds from across the DC Comics multiverse, placing them in domes, and then opening them up to see what happens when the characters from these disparate worlds come into contact with one another. Spoiler alert: it’s probably not going to end well.
Over the past two weeks, DC has unveiled 20 mini-series that will run alongside the primary storyline of Convergence. In addition to the core storyline, DC Comics will publish 40 different tie-in mini-series and today we have an exclusive sneak peek at 10 more of those titles, including 5 pieces of never-before-seen interior art that feature the return of Brainiac-5 and the Legion of Super-Heroes, Hawkman and Hawkgirl battling anthropomorphic rat-men, The Flash trapped in Gotham City, and much more.
