New Release Comics - Wednesday, April 8

This Wednesday, April 8th, fans will, well, converge on comic book stores to pick up DC's newest blockbuster book Convergence #1 by Scott Lobdell, Jeff King, Carlo Pagulayan and Jason Paz. In the first issue of this new weekly series, readers get to witness the past, present, and future of the DC Universe(s) collide. Thanks to Brainiac, or is it the evil planet turned sentient monster Talos, heroes from New 52, pre-Crisis, Flashpoint, Beyond and more must come together to save everything they know. First up are the refugees from the recently destroyed Earth-2. They'll stop at nothing to uncover what is really going on.

Check out the rest of this week's highlights and a full list of releases after the break.

After reading the first issue of Convergence, everyone will want to get the various special one-shots of their favorite series available all this month.

Marvel may not a have their big blockbuster series on shelves this week (don't worry, it is coming), but they do have a blockbuster book: Star Wars: Darth Vader #4 by Kieron Gillen and Salvador Larroca. Darth Vader needs to build his army. To do so he turns to the planet of Genosis. Meanwhile, the battle droids return to cause a little trouble. The "Black Vortex" story line continues this week in Captain Marvel #14 by Kelly Sue DeConnick and David Lopez. Captain Marvel is drawn into Marvel's latest cosmic event, but can she stand against the cosmically powered Iceman and Groot?
