Via IGN and The Nerdist, DC Comics has revealed the third week of ten April-May 2015 limited series that make up their Convergence event.
Each week in April, 10 of the two-issue mini-series will debut, running for two months and taking the place of the full lineup of DC Comics for April and May 2015. Those will run concurrently with a weekly mini-series that tells the heart of the Convergence story.
Week three keeps the nostalgia theme going - after week one brought us Cassandra Cain, Wally West married with children, Stephanie Brown Batgirl and Renee Montoya Question, and week two brought us 90s versions of Superboy, Green Arrow (Connor Hawke), and the Kingdom Come lineup of characters. It also continues the theme of bringing some creators either long-dormant or new to DC to take on their characters.
Marv Wolfman has two books in week three, but the most notable is an all-classic New Teen Titans lineup. Yes, that includes Donna Troy, one of the last real holdouts for the New 52, plus disco outfit Nightwing and more. The book will be drawn by Nicola Scott, Marc Deering, and Jeromy Cox, and features the team facing the Tangent Universe Doom Patrol.
Indeed, that’s the theme of the week. Week one is (Pre-New 52) 2000s characters taking on Flashpoint. Week two is 90s characters versus Kingdom Come. Week three? 80s characters versus Tangent. Sensing a theme yet?
Amongst the other notables, Josh Middleton does interior art for the first time in years, teaming up with Larry Hama on the Wonder Woman twofer - they’re bucking the Tangent trend, instead fighting “Red Rain” vampires. Carlos D’Anda, character and concept artist for the Batman: Arkham series of video games, provides pencils on Batman and the Outsiders written by Marc Andreyko. David Gallaher and Steve Ellis (with Ande Parks and Hi-Fi) bring their indie and webcomic sensibility to a tale of the Green Lantern Corps featuring an angry (but green-ringed) Guy Gardner.
