Earlier this week, our resident DC critic James said in his review of Convergence #0 – ‘I don’t really get what’s going on yet, and I should probably read up on what’s meant to happen in it, but what I read was good.’ This seems to be the general consensus for most new readers on the series, and even a few followers like myself. Luckily, DC’s Dan DiDio has taken some time out to help readers catch up and adjust for the series.
It’s a quick video, only 2.5 minutes, but gives a detailed look at the characters and plot threads leading up to Convergence. The convoluted nature of the series might put off readers, which is sad, especially for a series displaying so much intrigue. Plus, it’s the comic debut of veteran TV writer Jeff King, who’s work on Stargate and Star Trek has no doubt prepped him for this kind of writing.
Convergence #0 hit last week, and will be continuing as a weekly series, so make sure to catch up!
