Baturday: Convergence Week 4


Well, Convergence was interrupted by three “New 52” titles and the Free Comic Book Day issue of Divergence, and Gotham is spiraling out of control and headed to next week’s season one finale.  Then there’s that shock ending for Batman this week… probably one of the most genuine surprises in my entire comic-reading history.  And it’s…  ahem…  no joke.  Speaking of jokes: We got a glimpse of the new Suicide Squad Jared Leto Joker and it’s terrifyingly different than what we were expecting.  And a little guy named Frank Miller is returning to the character that made him immortal in the near-ish future, which is pretty dang neat.  But with all of the great stuff coming our way, let’s not get ahead of ourselves.  Here’s the week’s Batman (and other DC) related titles, as reviewed by yours truly:
