Geek Goggle Reviews: Convergence #3

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.

Geek Goggle Reviews: Convergence #2

Convergence turns in a character focused story with this issue of the mini-series. While the book tries to make some plot developments in the heroes versus the villain portion of the book, it seems to fall short of advancing as much as it could. The book is closer to where it should be as an event but still falls into the average category. This is an improvement but not enough of one.

Convergence puts forth another setup issue with a cast of characters that have familiar names but not necessarily faces. The comic book is targeting the hard-core DC fan. The ones that have read all of the events, know all about the universes, have an interest in characters that are long gone. If you find yourself outside of those parameters then you should sit this one out. I can't recommend this comic at all to anyone except the DC power reader.

The major event for DC Comics begins this week with the zero issue of Convergence. The five dollar book is basically a focused story about Superman and his interactions with many different incarnations of Brainiac. The comic book caters to a very small audience and feels extremely over-priced for under 30 pages of story and the general content of the comic book. It's difficult to see how the remaining eight parts are going to be worthy of the hype. I can't recommend this book unless you are a huge Superman fan or if you are committed to picking this up regardless of what the first issue has to say.

Geek Goggle Reviews: Batgirl Endgame #1

DC Comics
Stewart, Fletcher & Bengal

The Batman storyline, Endgame, spawns a few tie-in comics, of which this is one of them. Batgirl gets a one-shot dealing with Endgame from her side of town. The book takes the unique approach of offering a near-silent issue that is basically art and a few captions. The book is okay but the loyal Batgirl reader may not be thrilled with this issue based on how Batgirl's main title has been constructed, even though Stewart is writing both. This is an okay read but could have been a real home-run with some tweaks.

Batman reaches the penultimate chapter of Endgame. This issue has more of what you've come to expect from Snyder and Capullo. It's a tense story backed with chilling visuals. The comic provides the finale to the backup story as well to round out the reading experience. Overall, this is another good issue of Batman in what is a classic run on the character.

Simone, Lashley, Geraci & Wright

The second issue of the highly anticipated "Secret Six" saw some heavy delays supposedly because of artwork problems. This issue would have been better served being delayed a little longer. I couldn't make sense of the artwork on several pages and with a script that is not at all inviting to a new reader, or one that needs help recalling character's names, looks and powers, this book is a solid miss. While the bulk of the issue covers Catman and his own personal imprisonment, it only adds to the confusion, visually and story-wise because of the similarities between the then and now stories. This book just needed to bake longer.

Batman continues with the Endgame story with another fantastic issue. This comic book really begins to fold in the previous Batman arcs that Snyder has written, which provides a nice payoff for the long-time reader and probably makes the newer reader curious about what's come before. The book is definitely entertaining and provides a dense read that may keep the reader on the edge of their seat. Things certainly appear to be bleak for the caped crusader. I highly recommend this comic.
