March 26, 2015 by Ed Liu
DC Comics has provided Toonzone with two exclusive pages from the upcoming comic book Convergence: New Teen Titans #1, written by Marv Wolfman with art by Nicola Scott and scheduled to hit your Friendly Neighborhood Comic Book Shop on April 22, 2015. The pages are a brief synopsis of the Teen Titans’ comic book history, starting with the legendary 1980’s run by Marv Wolfman and George Perez and stretching forward to the current Convergence mega-event.
DC describes “Convergence” as “The entire DC Universe, from the dawn of time through The New 52, must fight to survive against a threat that bends the Multiverse to its will. Your favorite characters from every era and every forgotten series are all here! But are you going to say hello again just to say goodbye forever? The stakes have never been higher as the heroes of Crisis, Zero Hour, Elseworlds, and more are brought together for Convergence!”
The official advance solicitation text for the issue follows:

Comic Book Legends Revealed #516

COMIC LEGEND: George Perez refused to ever draw Vibe because he felt he was an offensive stereotype.
STATUS: False (but with a lot of truth to it)
In a 1985 Comics Journal interview with Heidi MacDonald, the topic of Vibe came up…
So that is likely the origin of the story, but Perez drew Vibe in Crisis on Infinite Earths, and not just in a tiny shot in a big group scene…
Every week, PREVIEWSworld announces which comics, graphic novels, toys and other pop-culture merchandise will arrive at your local comic shop.

The Hulk has seen the future...and it is murder. Beloved Hulk writer Peter David brings readers two classic dystopian tales of earth-shaking impact. Both stories find the Hulk at the end of the Earth - and at the end of his rope! In "Future Imperfect," the Hulk is the last super power in a post-apocalyptic Earth, ruling with an iron fist as the wicked Maestro. But summoned from the past by a small band of rebels is perhaps the only being who can stand against him! And in "The End," the green-skinned titan walks alone through a wasted and barren land - and must confront the one who is easily his ultimate nemesis! These two tales of the end times surely rank among the classics in Marvel history! Collecting HULK: FUTURE IMPERFECT #1-2 and INCREDIBLE HULK: THE END.
