DC COMICS’ “CONVERGENCE” HAS BEGUN!
On Wednesday, April 8th, DC Comics is starting a gigantic story line that spans every comic book title in their roster. It will be called “Convergence” and the basic plot is that Superheroes from various timelines will be battling for their version of reality’s place in DC’s multiverse.
The series will start in a special comic book simply titled, Convergence #1, and then that story line will continue inside every single character’s individual book. It’s gonna be EPIC!
The books will come out in a weekly basis and on April 8th there will be ten books to collect (we’re showing you all of them right here).
Now, the thing we would like to report is that DC Comics hired Book Cover Designer Chip Kidd to create ALL the “Variant Covers”! OK, now a few of you “non-comic book collectors” out there may be asking, “What is a Variant Cover”?
A simple explanation would be that the Publisher, DC Comics, every now and then, does this special thing for comic book collectors where they release a comic book with a regular “everyday” cover and then they also print another issue (exact same content) with a special “Variant” cover. The Variant usually features artwork from a well-known Artist who doesn’t normally work on that title.
Now, up above, we are sharing an example of this. The first picture shown is Chip Kidd’s variant cover for BATGIRL #1. The image below that shows what the regular “normal issue” looks like.
OK, check this out! Down below are all the other “Chip Kidd” covers coming out on April 8th. We are also posting a basic idea of the story line you will enjoy in each issue and also information on the Writers and Artists of each book. Also, please feel free to share these images with all your friends/family on your favorite social network. Thanks!
