Convergence Week One: Stephanie Brown, Wally West and Oracle Return to Comics!

Last week we announced CONVERGENCE, the massively Multiversal crossover event that kicks off in April. Well, bit by bit we’re learning more about it. Today, CBR and io9 announced the first week of miniseries, complete with creative teams and very intriguing imagery. Set in the pre-Flashpoint DC Universe, these miniseries offer us glimpses of heroes from not too long ago including Stephanie Brown’s Batgirl, Wally West’s Flash, Renee Montoya’s Question, Barbara Gordon’s Oracle and a classic-suited Harley Quinn.

The Roundup: Stephanie Brown Returns as the Spoiler!

It isn’t exactly a news flash around here to say that we love Barbara Gordon. But that doesn’t mean we haven’t missed Stephanie Brown. If you’re like us—and we know that there are many, many of you out there who are—you’re not going to want to miss Batman Eternal this week. In fact, if you’ve fallen behind in our weekly Bat-series, you may want to spend this afternoon getting caught up. Why?

Batman Eternal: An Interview with John Layman

We’re now in the third week of Batman Eternal, and DC’s new weekly Batman comic shows no sign of slowing down (as indicated by issue #3’s Batmobile meets bombs cover). A dangerously familiar villain is back in town and he’s wasting no time buying friends and high places, while poor Commissioner Gordon is stuck behind bars. But we suspect the big news among fans is that BATMAN ETERNAL #3 is the issue that introduces Stephanie Brown to the storyline as well as The New 52.

Batgirl Flies Across the Pond

Upon being dispatched to London on a top-secret Batman Incorporated assignment, Stephanie Brown arrives only to learn that the actual Greenwich Mean has been stolen. As all of London literally grinds to a halt, it’s up to Batgirl and Squire to save the United Kingdom. Joining writer Bryan Q. Miller on this storyline is artist Pere Perez. With a cover by Dustin Nguyen, BATGIRL #22 acts as a prelude to BATMAN INCORPORATED #9 and flies into stores today.

bgv2-cv7 Stephanie Brown – you might recognize her from such “hits” as: 1. Becoming Spoiler to literally rebel against her father (Cluemaster). 2. Dating Tim (Wayne) when he was still Tim (Drake)… actually, when he was Alvin Draper.  But she only knew him as Robin at the time.  But later she found out Robin was really Tim (Drake) who was pretending to be Alvin Draper.
