    Infinite Comix - Max Dweck Apr 29, 2015

    Convergence: Crime Syndicate #1 is a phenomenal book, with an engaging, emotional, character-driven story and art design that makes all the right choices. It's a sterling example of just what makes the concept of Convergence such a great one, and lives up to all the potential it has to offer. If the next issue can follow up on all the phenomenal groundwork laid out here, this may just be the best tie-in miniseries of them all. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner May 2, 2015

    This issue is one of my favorite Convergence titles of the entiore first month.  Brian Buccellato's story had me the minute it started and the retro fell of Phil Winslde's art was perfect.  I can't wait for next month's finale to see who decides to be the heroes and who takes the cowardly route.  Highly recommended.  By the way, I'm making meatloaf and mashed potatoes for dinner.

    No need for spoiler tags or going into much detail about what occurred in this issue. Even if you're not hip to everything that's going on in Convergencethis is just a great issue. Sort of like theNew Teen Titansissue I reviewed, Convergence is kind of an afterthought in the story. It's going on, but the cast all have these other situations that take precedence for most of the issue. It works well here. Brian Buccellato writes the story well so that the transitions between the teams is seamless. Not only can you compare these teams to the originals, but also against each other. Can't wait for the the second issue of this series. I was blown away. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Ryan Blair Apr 30, 2015

    Overall this story was okay; I actually really loved the art…very reminiscent of both time periods where this book takes place. But, the story seemed to fall a little flat…although the Crime Syndicate story seemed to have a bit of momentum with the crew trying to rescue Superwoman, the One Million heroes just seemed disorganized and boring. Hopefully the creators will be able to pull off a good ending to this story next month. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton May 1, 2015

    "Convergence: Crime Syndicate" #1 is ultimately frustrating, because it's put together by three talented creators. In the end, though, it's a reminder that not everyone is right for every project. I'd love to have a different comic with Winslade and Kindzierski collaborating, where the script is more suited to this look and style. In the end, though, this is just a mishmash of creators and genres that don't fit together. Read Full Review

    I was pleasantly surprised with this one. I really like the whole nostalgia thing coming out of this Convergence event, and this one was a good example.

    This one pulls off the retro thing quite successfully and introduces some interesting developments before the plot is inevitably hijacked by Convergence. The premise of the convergence books haunts each title that has to play to it, but at least this Crime Syndicate tie-in keeps it entertaining.
