TBU Solicits for May 2015


convergenceDC has released their solicitations for May 2015, the first month of DC’s two-month Convergence event which is filling in for their regular titles as DC moves it’s offices from the East Coast to the West Coast, made up of a title series and several two-issue titles.  This article will only highlight titles that include or feature TBU characters.  For the full list of titles and all of the Convergence issues, see this link.  However, DC still has several comics which are published outside the New 52 label (which will only continue through May)  which will continue through the month of April including the tie-in comic Arkham Knight, Batman ’66, and Injustice: God’s Among Us.
