DC Announces final week of Convergence with pre-Crisis characters

9

And the final week of Convergence  mini-series has been announced, with characters from the ancient Pre-Crisis on Infinite Earths world, with a little oddball stuff like the Crime Syndicate. Announcements were made at EW and Newsarama. The previous weeks of COnvergence—the two issue moving fill-in event that will help ease DC’s staff into their new West Coast home—focused on different eras. Week one was pre New 52; week 2 was the 90s, and week three was the 80s. And now we’ve gone back to the protean slurry.

Notable creators this time…well I like the Jeff Parker-Evan Shaner team and it’s always nice to see Len Wein, Denys Cowan and Bill Sienkiewicz working together.

  1. And the next month, all the regular DC books should de-boot back to their pre-Flashpoint Universe and numberings with the Eww 52 banished to where it belongs: to nothingness.

  2. If that Shazam book isn’t in the top five sales for the month, can we FINALLY declare the “Waaaa why aren’t DC books fun/for kids anymore, there are totally thousands of people out there who want them” folks full of shit? They’re already on thin ice with GOTHAM ACADEMY.

  3. I’m not generally the sort to buy a book based on its cover, but the art from Earth S looks spectacular, and it’s hard to go wrong with Jeff Parker writing.

    There’s some fairly interesting stuff in this Convergence event, shame that it’s only a two month reprieve from the godawful New 52.

  4. “And the next month, all the regular DC books should de-boot back to their pre-Flashpoint Universe and numberings with the Eww 52 banished to where it belongs: to nothingness.”

    Yes! You’re my hero, Rob. Preach it!

  5. “And the next month, all the regular DC books should de-boot back to their pre-Flashpoint Universe and numberings with the Eww 52 banished to where it belongs: to nothingness.”

    I’d go further. Let’s reset back to the Swanderson/Julius Schwartz/Denny O’Neil era, at least for Superman. Clark Kent with sideburns and wide lapel suits, Lois in mini-skirts, Jimmy in a jumpsuit with goggles.

    It is interesting that the ramshackle notions of continuity (at both companies) which made sense which have become insane are now treated so lightly. We’re getting some good comics out of it.
