Jimmy Attempts To Read All Of Convergence: The Prequel

Convergence #0

I’m a sucker for big crossover events.  I’m not sure why.  Maybe they appeal to the collector/OCD/completist side of me.  I have to have check lists of all the tie-ins and make sure I read every single one.  As such, I have read A LOT of crap over the years.  Nothing worse than picking up a branded crossover issue and it having little or nothing to do with the main event.  But I never learn.  I’ve even tried the “I’ll just read the main story and not bother with the tie-ins” schtick…and I always fell like I’m missing something and end up getting all the tie-ins anyway.  I’ve also tried the “I’m not going to read this crossover” approach…with minimal success.  I wasn’t going to read Forever Evil…totally did.  Avengers and X-Men: Axis…I have no interest in that…read the whole thing.  You get the picture.  (Side note: one of my few success stories of recent years is not reading The Black Vortex Guardians/X-Men crossover…don’t tell Jenny!)

With all that said, I am gearing up in an attempt to read all of DC’s Convergence as they are released.  May is going to be real tough as I’m also going to attempt to read all of Marvel’s Secret Wars and if I can manage to lift the keys to my cell from Watson’s belt, I might escape for a weeks vacation in there as well.  I’m sure there will be hits and lots of misses in both events.  But it seems hypocritical if I don’t read them, seeing as they are what 80% (Editor’s note: 90%) of what my Gabbing Geek posts so far have been about.

So let’s get to it.  Spoilers throughout for Convergence #0, New 52 Future’s End #48 and Earth 2: World’s End #26.

The New 52 Is Dead. Long Live The…New 49?

Divergence-FCBD

Not to be outdone by whatever Marvel announces on The View today, DC is trying to make waves of their own with huge changes to their entire line of comics in the wake of Convergence.

Up first, RIP New 52 branding.  It hasn’t made sense in a long time and I guess we are back to it simply being the DC universe.  (Unfortunately it doesn’t sound like we’ll be back to the Pre-Flashpoint DCU.  Sniff.)

Obscure Geek of the Week- He Could Be Sitting Next to You!

Who is the greatest Batman ever?  A popular choice is Christian Bale.  Others say Michael Keaton was and always will be the Dark Knight.  Old school geeks have an fondness for the great Adam West.  NONE of these are the right answer.  No.  It’s not Kilmer or Clooney.  Affleck is playing for second at best.  The right answer is this guy.  There never has been, nor ever will be, a better Batman than Kevin Conroy.
