    One thought on “Convergence: Crisis, Book One”

    1. Total waste of time. Insanely repetitive. Instantly boring. Conceptually, it may have seemed like a cool idea, but the execution of these "world vs world" stories falls miles short of its target.Skip the Convergence tie-in issues and only read the main Convergence storyline.1/5

    2. The "Convergence" two issue tie-ins tend to polarize fans. On the one hand, they are highly formulaic and most lead nowhere. We visit an alternate or erased incarnation of a character from DC's history, and learn what they have been doing while their city has been plucked from the multiverse and kept under a massive dome. At the end of the first issue they receive a challenge from Telos telling them they have to fight another city to survive. In issue two they fight the bad guy, but the outcome [...]

    3. So the concept of Convergence was to briefly revisit favorite eras/periods of comics, and also put them up against each other, right? I think they may have over-reached though, because I don't have fond memories of any of these eras. Okay, not exactly true - I kind of liked Batman and the Outsiders. But there were so many convergence titles, each of which matched up two eras, that most of the eras covered just weren't that interesting. And almost every story has the same plot - this group is suf [...]

    4. This volume contains:BATMAN AND THE OUTSIDERS: The Dark Knight and his army of allies face the rage of the One Man Army Corps, OMAC!THE ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN: The Man of Steel and his mighty cousin Supergirl combat the criminals of the Phantom Zone and the sentient apes from the world of Kamandi, the Last Boy on Earth!SUPERBOY AND THE LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES: Stranded in the future, young Kal-El and his high-flying friends must save Metropolis from the invasion of the Atomic Knights!GREEN LANTER [...]

    5. So the core Convergence book was quite possibly the worst volume that DC released in 2015. Can the connected mini-series be in better? Yeah, but that's honestly not a very high bar.The biggest problem is that the conceit for these comics is so constrained that no one can tell good stories. We pretty much get an issue of characterization followed by a call to action and then an issue of fight. Again and again. It was wonderful to see these old, lost characters again, but DC pretty much ruined the [...]

    6. Collects Convergence: Batman and the Outsiders issues #1-2, Convergence: The Adventures of Superman issues #1-2, Convergence: Superboy and the Legion of Super-Heroes issues #1-2, Convergence: Green Lantern Corps issues #1-2, and Convergence: Hawkman issues #1-2"Convergence" was an event in which a powerful entity abducted people from various worlds in the Multiverse and held them prisoner for one year. These abductees are a combination of superheroes, super villains, and regular people. Each wor [...]

    7. This volume includes the following Convergence mini-series: Superboy & The Legion of Super-Heroes, Green Lantern Corps. Batman and The Outsiders, Adventures of Superman and Hawkman. Also appearing are The Atomic Knights, Hercules and other characters from the Hercules Unbound series, OMAC and Kamandi and characters from that series. All in all an interesting mix. I was quite happy to see the Atomic Knights as that series from Strange Adventures happens to be a favourite of mine. As to the st [...]

    8. Writers: Marc Andreyko, Marv Wolfman, David Gallaher, Jeff Parker, and Stuart Moore.Artists: Carlos D’anda, Roberto Viacava, Steve Ellis, Tim Truman, Gus Storms, and others.This Convergence collection includes the miniseries Batman and the Outsiders #1-2, Adventures of Superman #1-2, Green Lantern Corps #1-2, Superboy and the Legion of Super-Heroes #1-2, and Hawkman #1-2.This collection is overall one of the more readable of the Convergence tie-ins, albeit somewhat inconsistent. The stories te [...]

    9. I'm a bigger fan of the Crisis versions of DC's heroes (especially the Legion of Superheroes and Supergirl)than their Zero Hour counterparts. Unfortunately it doesn't change the fact that this volume is essentially superfluous to the Convergence event (which I enjoyed). For fans of the pre-Crisis DC continuity.

    10. This was as enjoyable read as could be considering I haven't read Convergence yet. (There's a bit of a wait thru the library). I do have all the spin-offs, though, so I will see how interesting it is reading it the opposite way. I enjoyed the Supergirl story the most.

    11. Is DC Comics so much out of original ideas that they have to reuse "Countdown: Arena" to try and sell books?

    12. Batman & The Outsiders - 3 stars Superman - 2.5 stars Superboy & The Legion of Superheroes - 2.5 starsGreen Lantern Corp - 3.5 starsHawkman - 2.5 stars Overall -3 stars
