Mild Mannered Reviews - Convergence #3

Scheduled to arrive in stores: April 22, 2015

Cover date: June 2015

"Time Bomb"

Writer: Jeff King
Penciller: Stephen Segovia
Inker: Jason Paz
Main Cover: Ivan Reis, Joe Prado, and Peter Steigerwald

Reviewed by: Jeremiah Boor

    King introduces some new ideas into the story, but wastes too many pages on redundant plot points to explore them. Kandor is brought into the mix, the Warlord world of Skartaris is revealed as the key to defeating Telos, and Thomas Wayne (this story's Batman) dies. This should have been a great issue. Instead we are give nine pages of a battle with Brainiac drones.

    Any good Brainiac, collector of worlds, story should include Kandor. Finally, and somewhat abruptly, the famous bottled city is added into the mix. We are even treated to the Kandorian heroes, Nightwing and Flamebird. Sadly, just as we are introduced to the characters they are killed. Nightwing is not even named in the issue, despite being dramatically impaled and assassinated. The entire city and civilization is unceremoniously destroyed four panels later.

Mild Mannered Reviews - Convergence: Adventures of Superman #1

Scheduled to arrive in stores: April 22, 2015

Cover date: June 2015

Writer: Marv Wolfman
Penciller: Roberto Viacava

Cover: Mikel Janin

Reviewed by: James Lantz

    Rather than looking at the "Convergence" comics I'm reviewing as part of an overall crossover event, I've been treating them as their own story set in their own universe. This may not be what DC wants, but I find it easier because I just don't have the time or the funds to read all issues in said story arc. This hasn't been helpful with me with such stories as "Superman: Doomed", but it works for "Convergence" for now.

    It's great to have Marv Wolfman back in Superman's universe. Not only has he crafted a well written story, I felt like I was welcoming an old friend whom I haven't seen in years back to the old neighborhood. (The same could be said about Dan Jurgens' "Convergence" title, but I digress.) It's a pity we haven't seem more comics from Wolfman. (Marvel and DC hire this guy again please.) He really knows how to reel a reader into the tales he tells. Now if only we could get Roy Thomas to do another All-Star Squadron story. Then, it'd be a perfect world.

April 26, 2015: Fan-Made "Batman v Superman" Teaser TrailersPrint

Dawn of Justice A number of fan-made versions of the "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" teaser trailer have popped up on YouTube, some using footage of previous Superman and Batman actors. Here are a few of the better ones...


April 25, 2015: Post-Convergence - Lois Lane vs Clark KentPrint

Divergence Gene Luen Yang's first issue of "Superman" hasn't even been published yet, but the new writer has already started feeling the anger from Superman (and specifically Lois Lane) fans with the revelation of a few pages from an upcoming issue of "Superman" thanks to a sneak peek in the Free Comic Book Day offering titled "Divergence".

"Divergence" will give us an 8-page preview of each of the 49 books that will be published in June/July after the "Convergence" event concludes. People are calling the events after "Convergence" a 'soft relaunch' of the DC Universe. Much has been made of the new looks Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman will receive post-Convergence, and it appears that the status quo of the characters will also be changing... dramatically.

"Superman #42" will be released on July 22, as the second issue written by Gene Luen Yang. His first issue, #41 will be released on June 24. Before that however, issue #40 will be written and drawn by John Romita, Jr. and will be released this week, in the middle of Convergence (the current 2-month event taking place across the entire DC Universe). After Convergence, the Superman comic book titles will be involved in a crossover event titled "Truth", which sees Superman sporting a new haircut, wearing a T-shirt and jeans, while riding a motorbike.

However Superman's appearance isn't the only thing that'll be different. His secret identity as Clark Kent is also under threat... Thanks to Lois Lane!

The following images, taken from the 8-page preview from the Free Comic Book Day offering "Divergence" has revealed that Lois Lane will be responsible for outing Superman's secret identity... and fans across the Internet are not pleased... at all!

A Twitter backlash saw Gene Luen Yang engage enraged fans saying, "Hope you'll give our run a try!"

April 24, 2015: Frank Miller Returns to Write "The Dark Knight III: The Master Race"Print

Dark Knight III Earlier today Frank Miller announced via Twitter that the legendary writer and artist will conclude the epic THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS trilogy with the final installment, "THE DARK KNIGHT III: THE MASTER RACE."

SUPERSTAR WRITER/ARTIST FRANK MILLER RETURNS TO BATMAN! "THE DARK KNIGHT III: THE MASTER RACE"
Completes Trilogy in Legendary "Dark Knight" Saga

DC Entertainment announced today that bestselling, iconic Batman writer and artist Frank Miller will write the epic conclusion of the celebrated THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS saga.

The "THE DARK KNIGHT III: THE MASTER RACE" is the sequel to Miller's 1986 classic THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS - heralded by TIME Magazine as one of the 10 greatest graphic novels of all time - and its 2001-2002 follow-up series BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT STRIKES AGAIN.

Miller will be joined by acclaimed writer Brian Azzarello (100 BULLETS, JOKER, and WONDER WOMAN) on the eight-issue comic book periodical, to be published twice a month under the DC Comics imprint. Marking the 30th anniversary of THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS original series, this periodical is slated for publication beginning in late Fall 2015.

"Batman remains my favorite comic book hero and a sequel to Dark Knight is going to be daunting," said Miller, "but we'll do our best."

"We are thrilled to have Frank back home at DC writing Batman," according to Dan DiDio and Jim Lee, Co-Publishers for DC Entertainment. "The story he and Brian have crafted is an astounding and triumphant conclusion to this seminal body of work which influenced and shaped generations of readers and creators alike."

According to Azzarello, "It's been an amazing experience collaborating with Frank these past six months. I think we have an epic story that these characters truly deserve."

Artists for the project have yet to be announced.


April 24, 2015: Neil deGrasse Tyson on the "Batman v Superman" QuestionPrint

Dawn of Justice Neil deGrasse Tyson appeared on The Daily Show Thursday night to not only talk about science, but also to answer the important question: "Who would win in a fight between Superman and Batman?"

Neil deGrasse Tyson asked the question about whom each of the characters reports to. He says, Superman "behaves in whatever way he wants. And so at the end of the day, what might matter," he said, "is the public reception of the superhero's conduct. And if Batman executes our wishes in the city and Superman does whatever the hell he wants, that's a conflict."

You can hear Neil deGrasse Tyson's voice in the teaser trailer for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice". Whether he actually appears in person in the movie or not is unknown at this point in time.
