Convergence Week Three: A Little Pre-Crisis Coolness

Convergence Week Three: A Little Pre-Crisis Coolness

By Tim Beedle Tuesday, November 25th, 2014

Thanksgiving may not be until Thursday, but if you’re a longtime DC Comics reader, there’s plenty to be thankful for right now. After officially revealing the titles and creative teams that will make up Week One and Week Two of CONVERGENCE, our massive crossover event hitting the stands in 2015, this week we moved on to Week Three, breaking the next wave of two-issue miniseries on Nerdist and IGN.

While Week One targeted the DC Universe prior to the New 52 and Week Two looked at the era prior to Zero Year, Week Three goes back even earlier to the days before Crisis on Infinite Earths. You know, the days when Marv Wolfman was writing Teen Titans and Len Wein was introducing us to Swamp Thing. Well, if you were hoping for more from those pair of legends, you’re in luck! April and May of 2015 will bring us more Swamp Thing from Wein, more New Teen Titans from Wolfman, and eight other amazing adventures inspired by days past.  Look for issue #1 of the below miniseries to land in stores on April 22nd with issue #2 following on May 20th.

Check out the art, teams and synopses for Week Three below.
