We’re so excited for KAPTARA #1 this week, and we’ll let creator Chip (SEX CRIMINALS, HOWARD THE DUCK) Zdarsky describe it: "It’s like a sci-fi story, like the planet of Dr Moreau meets your childhood action figures. I’ve also been referring to it as Gay Saga, just to get more sales. I’m nothing if not a marketing genius." There’s also STAR WARS #4, UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL #4, and 10 more DC CONVERGENCE titles.

"As much as Convergence #0 was a set-up, this issue was pretty much the issue that laid out the rules for what’s going to happen in this series."

"Laura Allred, as usual, complements the inks perfectly: this is especially apparent on the last page, a gorgeous full-page spacescape with a myriad of ships and stars stretching across it."
