All The Worlds To Survive DC's Convergence?

convergence+nightwing+02It's world against world in DC's Convergence. Death and destruction all around, world pitted against worlds until only one survives. Or something.

Sounds a little incursion-y.

Convergence has been promoted as a way for DC fans to say goodbye to certain realities. One last lap of an old favourite, A nostalgic love letter to what once was, before moving on with what is new.

But, while sales may not have been as high as some might have liked in store, I understand that many of the titles have had a significant digital bump. Rather than a nostalgic kick for old comic book fans, they have been picked up, tumblrd, tweeted and shared by a newer, younger audience.

Apparently the current overstylised grimdark comics might not be what the "youth" wants after all. And as DC Comics begins to revamp their line with a rejection of house style in favour of a diversity of styles, characters and creators, so it seems those Convergence worlds will stick around.

And merge with the realities seen in Multiversity. The kids seemed to like that comic book too…
