Rapid Review: Convergence Issues 1 Through 5


I’m a bit behind on my reviews for the first five issues of Convergence. I really enjoy the concept behind DC Comics’ latest Universe-wide event. One thing I consistently give thanks for is Jeff King and Scott Lobdell’s storyline without Darkseid being involved (so far – keeping up hope). Telos is an entity on a mission and he’s going to get it accomplished for his leader Braniac if it’s the last thing he ever does. My only complaint about the entire run so far is the early death of Batman, who is my favorite character and I love him in his Earth-2 persona. Artists Ed Benes and Eduardo Pansica’s use of panels and pages is stunning.

The Convergence title is rated T for Teen. The issues contain violence, mild profanity, mild adult innuendos, and frightening and intense sequences.

Issues 1 through 5 of Convergence kick things off when Brainiac collects cities of doomed and forgotten worlds, who must battle each other – and the losers will be destroyed! But why is he forcing this conflict? Join the refugees from Earth-2 as they unlock the truth behind this world that exists outside time and space and is very much alive! Is Brainiac really in control – or is this planet named Telos an unparalleled force of evil? The stakes have never been higher as the heroes of Crisis, Zero Hour, Elseworlds, and more are brought together for Convergence!

You can get any of the first five issues of Convergence in print or Kindle editions.
