New comics Wednesday is upon us once more, and having just returned from my local purveyor of stupendous, spandex-clad superheroes with this weeks purchases, I have to say the cover that stands out the most for me is the Harley Quinn Convergence #1, the soft pastels effect is gorgeous. Convergence is DC’s month long epic saga that brings together every single hero and villain who ever existed, across all timelines and alternate realities.
Plot Synopsis: Harley’s life has become mundane and almost normal (!?) over the past year, but will she be ready to return to her crazy old ways when Catwoman and Poison Ivy recruit her to help fight… Captain Carrot!!
Harley Quinn Convergence #1 is available right now at your local comic book emporium. Written by: Steve Pugh. Interior art by: John Dell and Phil Winslade. Cover art by: Steve Pugh. Variant cover by: Chip Kidd.
Comic-book superstar writer Grant Morrison will allow us to cross dimensions next month when he re-introduces us to DC’s multiple Earths. Multiversity #1 will take us through the 52 parallel Earths that make up DC’s Multiverse, during these visits to other worlds we will meet the different variations of Superheroes we know and love including a vampiric Justice League on Earth #43 and the amazing Captain Carrot!
The dimensional defying adventure will take you on journey through six different storylines that take place in their own universes, but are brought together in their fight against an all powerful evil force known as the Gentry. Issue #1 of Multiversity will be available on August 20th, written by Grant Morrison, with art by Joe Prado and Ivan Reis.
