This is basically some random stories from the D.C. Convergence "mega-event". I view this much like a Marvel What If" or DC's "Elseworlds" stories. There are a few different stories that make up this collection. It collects Action Comics and Detective Comics for a Robin (in a stupid Bat/Robin mishmash costume) and Huntress fighting the Superman from the Red Son world (he's a Soviet). This story is a 3/5 and decent.Then we see a collection of Justice Society of America story which is also not bad [...]
A couple of good stories with good art, good stories with bad art, and a couple of bad stories with nondescript art.
This Convergence crossover featured the pre-Crisis Earth-2, which I absolutely LOVED when it was still canon. When I read the back cover, I was ecstatic! I looked forward to seeing Superman and Power Girl in action, Robin and the Huntress, the Justice Society, Infinity Inc. (before all the tragedies hit then) and the Seven Soldiers Of Victory. What could be better?For one thing, the artwork. On the Infinity Inc. story in particular, the artwork was so bad that those beloved characters were unrec [...]
Collects Convergence: Action Comics #1-2, Convergence: Detective Comics issues #1-2, Convergence: Justice Society of America issues #1-2, Convergence: Infinity Inc. issues #1-2, and Convergence: World's Finest 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 un [...]
Okay, I admit it. I was biased towards liking this book from the beginning. It features the Pre Crisis Earth-2 characters. How can a book go wrong when it includes both the Justice Society of America (albeit only four members) and Infinity, Inc. which was one of my favourite titles. The book also includes the Earth-2 Superman; Power Girl; Robin and Huntress as well as the Seven Soldiers of Victory. Their adversaries in this volume include the Red Son Superman and Wonder Woman, the Weaponers of Q [...]
DC: 'Got Nostalgia for our back catalog characters? We have a cure for that! BAM! Convergence!'Okay, it's not quite that bad, but honestly there's nothing in here that really justifies its existence. And it's a bad sign when you get more of the plot from the back cover than from reading the entire collection.The concept of various trapped cities being set against each other for battle is a background that hardly gets used beyond setting. It excuses character interactions as random as that horrib [...]
Writers: Dan Abnett, Jerry Ordway, Len Wein, Paul Levitz, and Justin Gray.Artists: Tom Derenick, Trevor Scott, Ben Caldwell, Denys Cowan, Bill Sienkiewicz, Jim Fern, Shannon Wheeler, Claude St-Aubin, and others.This Convergence collection includes the miniseries Justice Society of America #1-2, Infinity Inc. #1-2, Detective Comics #1-2, World's Finest Comics #1-2, and Action Comics #1-2.This is not one of the better collections of the Convergence tie-ins. The stories are mostly so-so, with formu [...]
The plot of Convergence goes like this:Character 1: "I'm so sad that we're in a dome."Mysterious Voice: "The dome has gone and now you must fight."Character 1: "but I don't want to fight, I'm a hero."Character 1 fights Character 2.Character 2 is defeated.Character 1: "I think we all learned something."The end.Insert your favourite Character from DC Comics and repeat.There's at least one other volume of this nonsense.
All of these Convergence stories have an incredible sameness about them. Here, finally, we meet two sets of combatants about which I have no interest and hardly care. Maybe this wouldn't be two-stars if I hadn't read the other near-identical books about characters I'm somewhat familiar with. But so be it.
Hmmmm, I really like the JSA story. And the Action Comics story is solid. But at a certain point Convergence is a hot mess since these titles seem to overlap on which cities are involved and are these the same Red Sun Supermen or same weaponers.And that makes it clear that their is some variety missing from the event.
If there's anything the "New 52" has taught me, it's that any writer who says that backstory crimps their creative juices is a liar. Hence, Exhibit A, which is merely a complete and utter ripoff of "Countdown: Arena".
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
Action Comics - 3.5 stars Detective Comics - 3.5 stars Justice League of America - 4 stars Infinity Inc - 3 stars World's Finest - 1.5 stars Overall - 3 stars
