DC’s huge Convergence event starts in April, and the announcement of the return of the pre-New 52 universe has set the comics world abuzz (and damn near gave Jim Dandeneau an aneurysm). The elevator pitch for these series is “Brainiac kidnaps cities from a buttload of alternate Earths, plops them on a planet that exists outside the Multiverse, and has them all fight with each other.” So, the comic equivalent of making your action figures fight with each other. They’re cancelling all of their books and replacing them with the main Convergence weekly miniseries, and 40 two-issue miniseries checking in on all of the various realities.

And the folks at DC have given Topless Robot an exclusive look at the solicitations for the Week 4 books! Check them out, why don’t you…
