New comics Wednesday is upon us once more, and this weeks stand-out cover is; Convergence: Hawkman #2. Another fantastic cover from DC’s ongoing, two month crossover spectacular “Convergence”. 

Convergence serves as the concluding chapter to the New 52: Futures End, and Earth 2: World’s End sagas. The aftermath of this event will see the end of the “New 52″ branding, though the established continuity will continue. It also ushers in 24 new monthly comic series to stand alongside the 25 continuing comics series from the New 52 brand.

Starring the heroes from “Crisis On Infinite Earths”, Hawkman, Hawkgirl and the Thanagarian Shadow Agency must face off against the lethal Bat-people from the distant land of Kamandi. This oversized issue also gives a sneak peek at what is coming up in the DC Universe.

Convergence: Hawkman #2 is available at your local comic book emporium right now. Written by: Jeff Parker. Cover by: Rafael Alburquerque. Variant cover by: Chip Kidd. Interior art by: Quique Alcatena and Tim Truman.

Welcome once more DC Comics devotees to another new comics Wednesday, having just returned from my local purveyor of spandex clad heroes with a clutch of this weeks new releases, I have to say that this month’s JLU is a standout from the crowd with its fantastic Warner Brothers Variant cover depiction of the classic Tim Burton movie – Mars Attacks.
