Before DC Comics unleashes a whole lot of new series and story arcs in June, the company is giving readers a chance to get a peek at what’s in the works in May, during the second month of the currently unfolding”Convergence” event — via eight-page standalone stories. Not only will these preview stories — not excerpts from upcoming issues, but original material — appear in the back of selected “Convergence” tie-in issues, they’ll also be available for free online via various platforms.
Today, DC announced the lineup of the first week of eight-page stories, and the “Convergence” issues where they’ll appear. Each will debut on May 6. Here’s the information, direct from DC, along with short descriptions of each story. Here are some from this first week that may be of interest to TBU fans.
