With the release of today’s eleven new Convergence titles, we’ve reached the climactic final week of this unprecedented world-shattering—sorry, make that worlds-shattering comic book event. With all of reality unraveling, it’ll fall on a collective of heroes from all eras and avenues of the DC Universe to do what they can to save our existence. Will they be able to do it? What sort of universe will await us when it’s all over?
All month long we’ve been releasing sneak peeks of our June comics. You can look for most of them in the back of our Convergence titles and right here on DCComics.com. However, three of these sneak peeks first ran in DIVERGENCE, the special title we released for Free Comic Book Day on May 2nd, and haven’t appeared on the DC Comics website…until now. Below, you can read original, eight-page standalone stories for Batman, Superman and Justice League. These aren't excerpts from the June issues—these are original short stories that set up what awaits you next month. Enjoy!
Last week, SUPERMAN #38 revealed the Man of Steel’s new power—the Super Flare. Unlocked during a battle with the super-villain Ulysses, the Super Flare is a destructive, large-scale blast of intense heat capable of incinerating everything within a quarter mile. It also—at least so far—depletes Superman’s cells of solar energy, leaving him powerless for about a day.
Where does he get those wonderful toys? We have no idea, but we're giving you a once in a lifetime chance to see them all!
So did you miss us? We sure hope so because DC All Access is back with our first new episode of 2014. And what an episode it is! Dan DiDio joins Geoff Johns to make a major announcement—legendary artist John Romita, Jr. will be teaming up with Johns on Superman! Plus, we chat with the charming Marguerite Bennett and Meghan Hetrick about the Joker's Daughter, discuss the art of Forever Evil with David Finch, and attend the premiere of the latest DC Universe animated movie, Justice League: War. All this, and we give you a chance to win a trip for you and a friend to San Diego Comic-Con!
