We’ve known for a while that DC Comics would be launching a two-month event which would replace their existing line while their staff relocates from New York to the DC Entertainment offices in Burbank.
Today, in a story at USA Today, the publisher announced the title and some details.
Convergence, which will be written by rookie comic writer Jeff King, in collaboration with veteran scribe Dan Jurgens. Jurgens has been instrumental in the Future’s End event, and should serve as a steady hand to guide the fresh-penned King.
“What we’re really addressing is they all exist and have existed and exist within the framework of the New 52,” Lee explains. “Convergence is in many ways the most meta epic event we’ve done.”
Speculation is certain to run rampant, as it almost always does whenever stories involving multiple realities crop up, as to whether or Convergence will be serving as a new Crisis for DC Comics. The fact that it is scheduled to be released very near the 30th anniversary of the seminal Crisis on Infinite Earths will only add fuel to the fire.
What do you think? Is this the end for the New 52? Let us know!
