DC Heads to Pre-Crisis Era for “Convergence” Week 4 Miniseries

DC Comics“Convergence” miniseries reveals continue, with the fourth week of the publisher’s 2-issue storylines being unveiled by Entertainment Weekly’s PopWatch blog and Newsarama. The week four storylines continue the previous three weeks’ shift back in time, with a number of series utilizing a specific “Pre-Crisis on Infinite Earths: Earth XYZ” designation, making sure readers know exactly when — and where — the individual stories take place.

Also in keeping with previous reveals, the creative teams often reflect the time period and Earths the characters are from by reuniting creators with some of the teams and planets they were known for working on in the past; Jerry Ordway returns to the adventures of “Infinity Inc.,” Denys Cowan will illustrate “Detective Comics” and Dan Jurgens is back on “Booster Gold,” while other titles feature all-new creative teams.

The nine-week event pre-empts DC’s regular New 52 publishing schedule and features numerous DCU realities, with characters from the pre-Flashpoint/post-Crisis universe, Flashpoint, Charlton, pre-Crisis, Tangent and more battling each other on a world filled with cities kidnapped from their various dimensions by the New 52 incarnation of Brainiac.
