DC's major springtime event this year sees all of the company's staff pack their belongings into boxes and ship them across country to Burbank. (Good luck!) While that's happening, all of the characters in DC's comics will be summoned to Battleworld by the Beyonder (or... close enough) for Convergence, a two-month pause in the company's New 52 publishing schedule, filled with a sort of nostalgia coleslaw of fresh chopped continuity from before Flashpoint, before Zero Hour, and before Crisis, with stories by Gail Simone, Greg Rucka, Keith Giffen, Nicola Scott, ChrisCross, Joshua Middleton, Jeff Parker, Bill Sienkiewicz, and many more.

All this week, DC has been unveiling covers for the first month of titles through various outlets. We've collected them here with the solicitation copy, so you can admire some fun throwback art -- including great pieces by Babs Tarr, Becky Cloonan, Steve Lieber, Pia Guerra, Jill Thompson, and Mike Allred -- and get out your Sharpie and use this as a checklist. (Tip: Don't draw directly on your screen.)
