Four dollars and ninety-nine cents.
That’s the cover price for Convergence #0, and boy did I feel ripped off when I finished reading it. Five bucks to set up a premise that could have been made clear in about three pages.
Brainiac has collected cities from various times and places in the DC multiverse, has effectively bottled them, and is keeping them on a world outside of space and time. Then he decides to open all the bottles up, and see what happens when all of those worlds start interacting with one another.
It’s an interesting premise, but it certainly doesn’t justify the $5 cover price for this issue. Almost the entirety of it is Superman asking varying incarnations of Brainiac the same questions over and over again. It’s boring, lacks any real action, and comes across as pure filler.
The amount of information in Convergence #0 vould have been imparted through a thirty-second motion comics trailer or a three-page backup in the regular monthly books.
I’m excited for Convergence, but with all of the issues that are already tying into the event, this zero issue feels like a total ripoff.
