DC unveils its full post-Convergence lineup!

convergToday, DC unveiled its full post-Convergence lineup, including no less than TWENTY brand new ongoing series’ to go along with the twenty-five current titles that are continuing.  So while it’s not exactly a reboot on par with the New 52, or Marvel’s upcoming Secret Wars event, it still represents a sizeable shake-up for the publisher… which, let’s be honest, is no bad thing.

Before we start digging too deeply however, here’s the complete list of the twenty new titles, along with their creative teams.


NEW TITLES

Annie Wu's Black Canary

Some positive steps being taken here for sure, including David Walker’s Cyborg; both Black Canary and Starfire getting ongoing solo series’ (the latter including a far less ridiculously mysoginystic version of the fan-favourite, courtesy of Emanuela Lupacchino), and a LGBT lead in Steve Orlando’s Midnighter (although the demise of Batwoman as an ongoing series kinda balances that one out).


MINI-SERIES

Bat-Mite
Dan Jurgens (writer), Corin Howell (artist)

Bizarro
Heath Corson (writer), Gustavo Duarte (artist)

Harley Quinn/Power Girl
Jimmy Palmiotti & Amanda Conner (writers), Stephane Roux (artist)

Section Eight
Garth Ennis (writer), John McCrea (artist)


CONTINUING TITLES

The following titles will be continuing in their present format, and it’s encouraging to see relatively new books like Gotham Academy and Gotham by Midnight getting a vote of confidence by the higher-ups.

ACO's Midnighter

CANCELLATIONS

And finally, we have the list of cancellations – some disappointing, some long overdue, and a few lying somewhere in between.  However, it bears mentioning that a lot of the cancelled titles are effectively continuing, albeit with slightly different takes (like Red Hood & The Outlaws now being split into Starfire and Red Hood/Arsenal ongoing titles, for example) so there’s not too many characters being wiped out completely.

Khary Randolph's We Are Robin

Khary Randolph’s We Are Robin

– Aquaman And The Others

– Earth 2

Yay or nay?

  1. You missed Green Lantern: New Guardians being cancelled also…

  2. Good mix of new titles. I see Earth 2 will be cancelled. I used to love this series until World’s End ruined it, not sure if I will check out Earth 2 society or not, as I hate the what DC has done to Earth 2 already. The new Dr Fate title does sound good, I’ve always liked the character so I will be sure to get that. I actually don’t get as many DC titles as I used to, not sure if that will change, tend to read more Marvel and Image, but this post Convergence line up certainly has a lot of new and interesting titles for us to choose from.
