    One thought on “Convergence: Infinite Earths, Book Two”

    1. Oh the woes of a completionist! Why oh my did I force myself to read every issue of this event??? Well, actually, to fully understand the Convergence event, you have to read the Booster Gold chapters of this collection. Also: if you are a Booster Gold fan as I am, there is a very important plot twist for him in here.Otherwise:IT'S THE SAME OUTCOME OVER AND OVER AND OVER!!! You only need to read one or two of the instalments to understand how this whole event plays out. So much effort and resourc [...]

    2. I honestly found myself liking this one more than normal, it could have been because the format was somewhat changed with different endings.And the Booster story is very irregularlove the respect for Booster.The match-ups were generally different and I liked it.

    3. The only set of stories in the Convergence stories that are good. Seriously, it was a bad experiment. This one just had interesting characters, which saved it.

    4. I've always enjoyed the Marvel Family, and this was no exception. I would have enjoyed seeing the three Lieutenant Marvels as well, but I get space restrictions. Their story was great- true to their characters despite having been deprived of their powers for a year. Booster Gold and Rip Hunter vs. one of the Legion of Superheroes teams. This one was good too, as it helped explain some of the temporal insanity surrounding the whole Convergence. Hub City's heroes (Blue Beetle, Captain Atom and The [...]

    5. Collects Convergence: Shazam #1-2, Convergence: Blue Beetle issues #1-2, Convergence: Booster Gold issues #1-2, Convergence: Crime Syndicate issues #1-2, and Convergence: Plastic Man and the Freedom Fighters 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 world's/time period's people are trapped unde [...]

    6. More Nostalgia treading from DC in this event that seems to have no purpose except to mine previously popular characters and worlds. But as I actually had nostalgia for some of the characters in this volume over the first volume, and because some of the stories actually seem better than the first volume, this one won me over more than the first volume did.There are some stinkers - the Injustice League vs. DC 1 million was a mess, and Shazam vs Gotham by Gaslight has moments but overall falls und [...]

    7. Writers: Jeff Parker, Brian Buccellato, Scott Lobdell, Dan Jurgens, and Simon Oliver.Artists: Phil Winslade, Evan “Doc” Shaner, Yishan, John McCrea, and others.This Convergence tie-in volume collects Shazam! #1-2, Blue Beetle #1-2, Crime Syndicate #1-2, Booster Gold #1-2, and Plastic Man and the Freedom Fighters #1-2.The best story in this collection, and the best story of the entire Convergence titles, is Booster Gold. It is a story that directly advances the overall Convergence storyline, [...]

    8. Not for the first time, DC and Marvel found themselves on parallel tracks when the former's Convergence and the latter's Secret Wars both echoed back to events and classic runs of the past, putting them in conjunction on a world assembled by a villain. But as has been standard in recent years, the Marvel version was fun and varied while the DC one was hampered by a straitjacket concept which makes the whole thing unnecessarily dull and repetitive. So yes, here you can revisit the proper versions [...]

    9. Shazam - 2 stars Blue Beetle - 1.5 stars Booster Gold - 2 stars Crime Syndicate - 3 stars Plastic Man & The Freedom Fighters - 1.5 stars Overall - 2 stars

    10. Of all the old DC Comics story ideas that these guys could have ripped off, why did it have to be "Countdown: Arena"?
