DC Comics’ latest Universe-wide Convergence is now over and it’s time to reflect on what transpired and if it was a worthy read for fans. I can’t answer for everyone else out there, but I found the story-arc to be entertaining. It was an interesting way to re-establish the lost worlds of the past and re-re-re-boot everything… again. Now, if they’ll only go back to the original numbering for the different titles before the New 52.
In Convergence Issues #6, #7, and #8, a pantheon of heroes free of the reign of Telos unite at last in an effort to defend their collective cities. However, they did not count on the threat of Deimos, who suddenly seems to possess the power to tear the Multiverse apart at the seams! Who will win and who will lose when Deimos battles the combined might of the Earth 2 survivors, the heroes from Kingdom Come, the Titans and Parallax? Even the heroes of The New 52 join the fight!
All the issues of Convergence are rated T for Teens. They contain violence, profanity, and frightening and intense scenes.
Convergence Issues #6, #7, and #8 close out the mini-series with a monstrous bang and gives readers an explosive finale. Writers Scott Lobdell and Jeff King certainly took a concept and ran with it with their tale of redemption, companionship, trust, and valor. Several artists like Ed Benes, Mark Morales, Aaron Lopresti, Stephen Segovia, and Carlo Pagulayan take the saga to the next level visually. I must say it felt like DC was in a hurry to end the New 52 and move on with the event unfolding over only eight weeks.
Convergence Issue #6 is available now in print and Kindle editions.
Convergence Issue #7 is available now in print and Kindle editions.
Convergence Issue #8 is available now in print and Kindle editions.
