DC Reveals Final 10 Convergence Miniseries


DC recently revealed the solicitation details on the final 10 unrevealed 2 part miniseries, for their upcoming Convergence event, happening throughout April and May 2015. One thing to note that has fans excited is the fact that the fourth week of the event consists of series that focus on the original DC Comics multiverse: the Pre Crisis Earth 2, Earth 3, Earth 4 (The Charlton universe we just recently seen in Multiversity: Pax Americana), Earth S, and Earth X.

This seems to be following a trend in the themes featured with the books announced for each week during the event, where week 1 is focusing on the early 2000s pre-New 52 characters, week 2 the 90s “lost generation” characters, week 3 the 80s Crisis-era, and now week 4, the Pre-Crisis era of characters. Along with this there are many mentions of Flashpoint, and other past events, when it comes to the villains involved. Shown below are some of the preview art and details on each of the miniseries announced, along with the creative teams involved.
