Speculator Corner – Convergence: Superman #1, The First Appearance Of Doomed

Tomorrow sees the second issues of the two parter Convergence event. And, as well as giving you an idea where the series will be going as world battles worlds (or, at least, is meant to) the books will also preview every book in June.

Including Convergence: Superman #2, featuring a first look at Doomed, the new comic by Scott Lobdell and Javi Fernandez.

We have pointed out that this is a book that few people are anticipating. However, this is the only brand new character being launched by DC Comics in June, it's a teen book, the kind that Scott Lobdell has a decent reputation writing, is tied to Superman and the popular Doomsday storyline and is, frankly, DC's best hope for a breakout character since Harley Quinn. A tragic monster story at its heart and a killer title, reminiscent of Frozen, Tangled and Wicked.

With an original, not-to-be-reprinted-till-the-trades first appearance tomorrow. If the character does take off, then this is where it began…
