It's Bat-Family vs. Red Son in Convergence: Detective Comics


Convergence: Detective Comics #1 and #2 are exciting and personal additions to DC’s latest Universe-wide event. Huntress and Robin come face to face with their past and their emotions in the throes of a hopeless battle with the Soviet Superman. My only real complaint about the issues is Dick Grayson’s Batman / Robin hybrid costume, which is honestly pretty ridiculous.

Heroes from “Crisis on Infinite Earths” star in Convergence: Detective Comics #1 and #2. Helena Wayne and Dick Grayson fight side by side in memory of Bruce Wayne as they decide who will become the next Batman. When the dome comes down, they come to blows with the powerful Red Son Superman!

Convergence: Detective Comics #1 and #2 are rated T for Teens. The comic contains violence, mild profanity, and intense scenes.

Len Wein’s writing and narrative will take readers back to the 1970s and 1980s with its retro prose. Denys Cowan’s artwork adds a rough edge to the books that gives the story even more grit. Thankfully, much to Huntress and my own relief, Dick ditches the goofy suit for a more suitable one in the end.

Convergence: Detective Comics #1 is available now in print and Kindle editions.

Convergence: Detective Comics #2 is available now in print and Kindle editions.
