TASTE OF HOME: The Outsiders, JLA Detroit, Kamandi, Hawkman, Swamp Thing And More Star In 'Convergence' Wave 3 Minis

When DC slams the brakes on the 'New 52' and throws all it's previous realities into a blender with nine-week event series Convergence, they will also supplement the void with a four sets of two-issue mini-series'. Having announced the line-up for the third batch of four, the ten two-parters include with the return of many classic characters, as well as writer Marv Wolfman's return to The New Teen Titans, Force Works' Dan Abnett scripting The Flash, and artist Kelley Jones on Swamp Thing!!

Set for April/May 2015, here are the Wave 3 deats thanks to IGN and Nerdist:

    This plus the Future's End thing in the Neu 52 is going to end in some kind of Giga-Crisis universe reset dealie. Mark my words. I give it by the end of 2015.

  2. OH, MY GODS: Kelley Jones' SWAMP THING!!! *squeeeeeeeee*

  3. Yup Pensol - that definitely seems to be the way it is heading. Hopefully pre-New52 continuity is restored. I miss my JSA, my Titans, my Outsiders... the list goes on. Although the fact I still call them mine after the whole 52 event makes me a pretty big sucker huh?

    King - tell me about it! I still drool over (actually beside over would damage the pages) the issues were Kelley drew Batman meeting Swampy. If any creative pairing stays in place after this Amalgam ish crossover is over please, please, please let it be this one.

    I would LOVE to see the pre-New52 continuity return, albeit with some of the improvements/innovations the status quo has wrought. For one example the current version of WW is by far the best she's ever been, and I'd hate to see her go back to the mess she was before.

    Oh and also, Superman's current costume? Definately keep, especially if Roquefort (sp?) Is drawing him. Yum.
