If the current comics are the "New 52," would these Convergence titles be the "Old 52"? We'll leave that naming up to the fans, but we do have more information on miniseries being launched in April as part of this multiverse-spanning event bringing back some of the most foldly remembered versions of DC characers.

We now have the covers and solicitation text for the first issues of all the Convergence miniseries launching in the first two weeks of April, including all 10 week two titles released Wednesday as well as the solicitation texts for the month's main Convergence series, #1 through #4. Newsarama collated this information from Blastr, Entertainment Weekly, ComicVine, HitFix and CBR. We'll update you as more become available, including our own five to exclusively debut later this week.
