Convergence, Week By Week, As Explained To Retailers By DC Comics

ConvergencePromo_1200_545ac8e14697f7.11375445Spilling out of yesterday's retailer meeting in Orlando with DC Comics, a look at the Convergence event, week by week, laying it out.

Convergence is intended to tie the storylines from the weekly titles World's End and Futures End together. Each week has a theme and a conceit.

The first week has the Pre 52 characters appearing, their lives intended to be ser about a year after their last appearances, before the Flashpoint crossover.

The second week features the heroes of Zero Hour and focuses on the generational aspects of the DCU in that era. It also has pre-New 52 Wildstorm, including Azreal Batman vs Deathblow, and Superman vs Gen 13.

The third week is the classic Crisis On Infinite Earths era with the Legion Of Super Heroes.

The fourth week shows the expansion of the multiverse featuring Quality, Fawcett, Charlaton, and the Golden Age Earth 2 JSA. And at some point we get an emotional meeting between Kon-El, the nineties Superboy and Kingdom Come Superman.

Beyond that, the New 52 characters start to get involved, watching from beyond – a change in plans, it seems.

These Convergence mini-series will be collected into eight 10-issue trade paperbacks, themed week by week…
