Convergence

In April and May, DC comics are ceasing publication of their New 52 Superhero range and replacing it for two months with a nine part weekly series, Convergence, and 40 two part mini-series.

As many of these new comics are vastly different to the current ongoing storylines we will not assume that anybody will automatically want them adding to their order. Anybody who wants Convergence and any of the other series are urged to let us know.

Email shop@okcomics.co.uk to request an order form.
There is more information on the DC Website.
