This week, Convergence visited a few worlds from the pre-New 52 universe and as someone who grew up and began his lifelong love affair with comics (specifically DC Comics) in the 1990s, I was beyond pumped to see the Wildstorm universe, the Zero Hour world, and a little glimpse of the legendary Kingdom Come Elseworlds realm take center stage this week in Convergence. I love comics. I love Batman. And I unapologetically love the nineties. Needless to say, this week was a lot of fun for me as a reader and a big kid at heart. Here are the week’s releases:
Convergence #2 – My Rating: 5/5
