Gen 13 And “Kingdom Come” Return In New DC “Convergence” Miniseries

DC Comics has announced the next wave of titles in their massive “Convergence” event. Hitfix and Blastr debuted five new images each, thus revealing the 10 titles that will go on sale during the second week of April 2015. The new titles see classic DC creators like Louise Simonson, Ron Marz, Keith Giffen and others returning to big name characters like Superman and the Justice League. The latest round of announcements also feature a heavy focus on the “Kingdom Come” version of DC icons, with four of the 10 mentioning the acclaimed 1996 miniseries by name.

“Convergence” spins out of the finales of currently unfolding weekly series “Earth 2: World’s End” and “New 52: Futures End.” The event will follow Brainiac as he hoards cities from all over the multiverse and captures them in “domes.” Starting in April, the entire current crop of DC series will be placed on hold for two months while 40 new two-part series, each one seemingly set in one of the publisher’s numerous alternate realities or past continuities, take their place. DC announced their initial lineup of retro-facing limited series on Comic Book Resources last week, which included the return of both the Question (Renee Montoya) and Stephanie Brown.
