Even More More Convergence
DC just announced week 4 of the Convergence event meaning we know everything coming out that month. We know the titles. And, as usual, some of the titles announced are intriguing to a veteran reader like me. This week is all pre-Crisis universes. The titles were announced over the web but Newsarama has all the solicits here: http://www.newsarama.com/22861-dc-s-convergence-week-four-pre-crisis-multiverse-is-back-baby.html
For the first time, there is no book starring Supergirl. But as I said, there are a couple that look like fun.
Writer: Justin Gray
Artists: Claude St-Aubin and Sean Parsons
Colorist: Lovern Kindzierski
Superman teams up with Power Girl, but can they stop a nuclear strike from Lex Luthor and Stalin of Red Son Moscow?
Nothing like some old-fashioned Earth-2 fun between Kal-L and Kara Zor-L. I especially like the original scoop neck shirt on Power Girl. And seeing the Daily Star building always brings a smile.
I like Justin Gray's work and Claude St. Aubin was strong on R.E.B.E.L.S. so this one sounds good all around.
Writer: Jeff Parker
Artist: Evan “Doc” Shaner
Colorist: Jordie Bellaire
It’s Shazam versus Steampunk, as the world of Gotham By Gaslight takes on the Captain Marvel family and friends.
This book, featuring the Marvel Family, is the Convergence book I am most excited about. Parker, Shaner, and Bellaire are killing it on Flash Gordon right now so I can't wait to see their take on these characters. And seeing an old-school Marvel Family is great. I am a big fan of Captain Marvel Jr!
Writer: Len Wein
Artists: Denys Cowan and Bill Sienkiewicz
Colorist: Felix Serrano
Helena Wayne and Dick Grayson fight side by side in memory of Bruce Wayne as they decide who will become the next Batman.
Lastly, while I am not a huge Bat-family reader, I am a Huntress fan. So seeing this Helena Wayne is fantastic. And Len Wein is writing! Perfect. But as a fan of the O'Neil Question book, I think the Cowan/Sienkiewicz art team is going to shine!
