DC Comics to end New 52 after Convergence, 24 New Titles Due.

DC comics today announced that the ‘New 52,’ initiative will effectively end once the ‘Convergence’ event hits. Story continuity will remain, but a greater emphasis on “storytelling will trump continuity” will be the new approach according to DC Comics as well as a “more inclusive and accessible line-up” of books.

Along with this news, DC Comics shared news that 24 new titles will be starting, alongside 25 books that will continue where they leave off when they reach ‘Convergence’ and continue with their original numbering.
