In February, all of DC’s current books will be put on a 2 month hiatus while their latest event series kicks off. Convergence is a nine-week miniseries kicking off with a zero issue April 1 by Dan Jurgens and Ethan Van Sciver. The story line will spill into 40 two-part miniseries in April and May focusing on the worlds of the DC Universe over the decades, as well as the heroes and villains contained within.
The event also marks the comic debut of writer Jeff King, who’s handling the scripting and storytelling for the main Convergence plot line. (Dan Jurgens of Futures End is co-writing the zero issue with him, while former Superman scribe Scott Lobdell is helping to lay out the overall outline of the story.)
King, the executive producer and head writer of USA’s White Collar TV series, has a background in science fiction with his work on the shows Stargate SG-1 and Continuum.
“Because this involved so much deep lore and fiction from DC Comics, it was great to have someone come in with a fresh set of eyes to look at it and make sure that it’s as open and accessible to all fans,” DiDio says. “Not just the people who have been reading DC throughout the years.”
