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

Convergence Week One: Stephanie Brown, Wally West and...

By Tim Beedle Tuesday, November 11th, 2014

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. Longtime fans will also want to take note of the creative teams, which include many of the same writers and artists who made these versions of the characters famous. Can you say Greg Rucka?!

Check out the art, teams and synopses below. Look for issue #1 of these two-issue miniseries to land in shops on April 8th, with issue #2 following on May 6th.
