    DC Comics Announces New “Convergence” Spin-Offs, Superman Titles

    With DC running headlong with their latest publishing initiative, “DC You,” we at Multiversity were quite sure we’d seen the last of the wildly successful but equally divisive “Convergence.” However, at San Diego Comic Con, DC has suprisingly announced three new series that will continue various threads from the event.

    First up is “Telos,” which seems to be a direct sequel to “Convergence” proper, reuniting two key members of the creative team. So far, Telos has essentially been cast as a sorely underdeveloped Silver Surfer analogue. Hopefully King and Pagulayan can give the characters some much needed depth. If nothing else, the series could potentially be another interesting addition to DC’s stable of cosmic books.

    Following the epic events of CONVERGENCE, here are the adventures of the last son and daughter of Krypton and Earth as they try to survive in a world not their own. But can they keep this world from suffering the same fate as their own? Can this Superman stop the villains he once fought before they are created on this world? What is Intergang, and why does Lois’s discovery of it place everyone she loves in jeopardy? And what will happen when their nine-year-old son learns the true identity of his parents?

    Next up is “Superman: Lois and Clark,” with rather than continuing the plot of the popular 90’s television show reunites the “Convergence: Superman” team to chronicle the adventures of the pre-“Flashpoint” Lois, Clark, and their son. The series appears to take place nine years following the events of “Convergence,” with the family living in yet another foreign universe. I had several good things to say about “Convergence: Superman” in the DC3’s coverage of the event and am very excited to see the story continue.

    Lastly, and perhaps most interestingly, is the enigmatic “Titans Hunt.” Written by Dan Abnett and illustrated by the vastly underrated Paulo Siqueira, the series seems to hint at the return of a more traditional Titans team, something that the DCU has sorely lacked since the launch of the New 52. Somewhere out there, Brian Salvatore is nursing an ember of hope for a Roy Harper that doesn’t wear a trucker’s hat.

    CONVERGENCE is over, but the ripples are still being felt, especially by a young precog named Lilith. What are these visions she’s having of a Teen Titans team the world never knew? And why does she feel compelled to seek out Dick Grayson, Roy Harper, Donna Troy and an Atlantean named Garth and warn them that something dark and sinister is coming after them? Who are Mal, Gnarrk, Hank Hall and Dawn Granger, and what is their connection to the others—and to the fate of every soul on Earth? This is the Secret History of the TEEN TITANS!

    Also announced were two new series focusing on Superman. The first, “Coming of the Superman,” will see Neal Adams pit a trio of Supermen against “all of Jack Kirby’s characters.” Max Landis will also pen “Superman: American Alien,” an anthology style mini-series featuring a fantastic team of artists; Jock, Nick Dragotta, Tommy Lee Edwards, Jöelle Jones, Jae Lee, Francis Manapul, Jonathan Case, and Ryan Sook. Landis and Jock were recently nominated for an Eisner for their “Adventures of Superman” story, so it’s no surprise to see the duo take on such a high profile project.

    Event aftermath books are often dull affair, feeding off the success of the preceding stories. However, these three titles feature grossly underutilized creators, which is always a plus. I for one would read a Superman title illustrated by Lee Weeks all day long. While info for all of these titles are slim, there’s plenty for fans to be excited about. Look for these books this October and November and continue following Multiversity Comics for all of your San Diego Comic Con updates.
