Brandon Borzelli's Geek Goggle Reviews
King, Segovia, Paz & Steigerwald
Convergence continues to tell a story that caters to the absolutely hardcore DC fans. I am taking a guess that those fans will know all of these characters and references and understand the differences between Earth-2 and Pre-Flashpoint, etc. The comic does nothing to engage a reader that is newer, perhaps brought in by the New 52. No recap page, no back-matter, no footnotes (wouldn't that help sell the back catalog?), some of the characters aren't even referred to by name in the book. The book and event is a mess, constructively speaking. However, the book has a lot of action and a death or two. Generally speaking I was able to make my way through the comic without being totally confused, but then again I assume all of these characters will die so I can't say I'm too engaged. This comic is for the well-seasoned DC reader. Everyone else should wait this out until the re-launch hits in June.
