    Praise to the god of writing that is Greg Rucka. It's been too along since he returned to his beloved Renee as he humbly accepted to have her back into the pages of DC. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Matt Santori-Griffith Apr 8, 2015

    The Question may not be the most intertwined title of the Convergence event, clearly operating on its own emotional plain, but it is for certain a love letter to characters I knew I missed, but had no idea how much until I read this issue. With a tear in my eye and an ache in my heart, Im going to treasure these two issues, and pray that the stars will align once again. Rucka, Hamner, The Question a perfect combination and a gift to all those who love them so. Read Full Review

    Critical Blast - Mike Maillaro Apr 12, 2015

    It was pretty cool that this issue compares the events of Convergence to No Man's Land. You would think more people in Gotham pre-New 52 would have made that comparison, but this was the first place I've seen it. The relationship between Two-Face and Question (in and out of costume) was really well done, and definitely helped elevate this book to me. This book also seemed to not involve any other DC reality, but still made real good use of the dome. A great issue, but with Rucka and Hamner, it really could not have been bad. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Loukas Apr 13, 2015

    Comparing Gotham City to a cage comes pretty naturally to anyone who's been reading Batman comics for the past twenty years or so. The city seems a dark and desperate place filled with dark and desperate people trapped with each other in a cycle of violence and cruelty. The story that most exemplified that,the event thatwas the iconic representation of this view of Gotham, was 1999's No Man's Land, and the writer probably most associated with it was Greg Rucka.

    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Apr 8, 2015

    If you never read a pre-New 52 comic and you're worried about understanding the characters in these lost dimensions, have no fear! Rucka not only quickly and easily established the "Dome Order" in this book, but sets up the characters in a way that makes them instantly awesome and wholly relatable. The Convergence formula of world vs. world is used to a unique advantage in that it's not Telos' invader who is coming to challenge our protagonists for supremacy, but Harvey Dent who's looking to make trouble in the hopes of putting an end to his disordered life. Buy this and revel in it! Read Full Review

    IGN - Mike Logsdon Apr 9, 2015

    It's hard to discuss why this book is so great without getting into spoilers, but the strength of this issue comes from Renee and how she interacts with her enemies and allies. This culminates with a final page reveal that will leave fans thirsty for more. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Zac Thompson Apr 9, 2015

    Overall, you dont need to be acquainted with Ruckas past writing in the Dc universe to enjoy this story, but if you are youll be pleasantly rewarded. All the same this pocketed story in previous continuity is an incredibly enjoyable ride that might make you long for the days before the New 52. Read Full Review

    Overmental - Logan Dalton Apr 8, 2015

    You should definitely buy Convergence: Question if you're a fan of detective and superhero stories and are fans of the characters Renee Montoya or Two-Face. (Or like morally grey characters who fight with giant katanas.) But the middle part might be a little jarring because of the Convergence tie-in. Read Full Review

    Buccaneer Book Reviews - Cap'n Aldous B. Adder Apr 9, 2015

    As a fan of the original back-up stories, this was a nice bit of nostalgia reentering the world of Renee Montoya as The Question. In a sense it was almost as if Rucka took out the original scripts from before the cancellation, dusted them off and just threw in the minimum required editorial event-mandates and sent it to the art team.

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Apr 8, 2015

    This is really a book for fans of Renee Montoya as The Question. It's essentially fan-service that's done incredibly well. The Convergence aspect of this book isn't important. What is important is seeing Greg Rucka, Cully Hamner, and Dave McCaig deliver readers some awesome characters and fun story. These next couple of months may be pretty rough with all these Convergence books, and even if you're not a Question fan, I'd put this book towards the top of your Convergence reading pile.

    "Convergence: The Question" #1 is a reminder of what can work well in the "Convergence" event. Separated from the main miniseries, these little slices of an earlier DC Universe can not only evoke some nostalgia but also give characters one final hurrah. It's no small coincidence that the title of this comic is "Just One More Thing..." as Rucka and Hamner return to characters that had seemed forever out of reach. If even a majority of "Convergence" miniseries are this good, April and May 2015 will bring comic book fans a lot of gems. Regardless of the other miniseries' quality, though, "Convergence: The Question" #1 is a must-buy for fans of this era of "Detective Comics" stories. It's great to be reunited with the old gang one final time. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Thomas Crawford Apr 11, 2015

    This tie-in miniseries is only two issues long, but it's a fascinating read, and it will be interesting to seeing how far Rucka goes with the relationship between The Question and Two-Face. With strong art and stronger character work, the ending of this series is one question audiences won't want to leave unanswered. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Apr 11, 2015

    Even though it's only one issue, Greg Rucka does a damn fine job in giving us the current status quo of The Question and her associates while giving us plenty of callbacks to the old continuity before everything got all Domed to hell.  Cully Hamner being on art here was a real joy and I'm happy that DC got these two back to work on this character that they made so popular.  Go check out this Convergence title because it's one that really gives you the nostalgia feels.

    All-Comic - Milo Milton Jefferies Apr 14, 2015

    If youve been wondering what the stronger books of DCs Convergence event have been so far, then Convergence: The Question is certainly one of those. Greg Rucka is in fine form here and handles the fan favourite characters wonderfully well, with some excellent artwork from Hamner and McCaig. This is an issue that you wont want to miss.

    Newsarama - Oscar Maltby Apr 8, 2015

    he return of Rucka and Hamner's the Question is an inspired addition to the busy Convergence line-up. This is a crossover with limitless opportunity, and it's nice to see an often-overlooked run receive a second look amid more obvious choices. However, if you're scouring the plethora of Convergence titles for books that matter to that crossover, and you aren't already initiated with Renee Montoya: the Question, you should probably give this one a miss. Despite this relative inaccessibility, Hamner's moody artwork and Rucka's great take on Two-Face make Convergence: The Question #1 a fulfilling read. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Apr 9, 2015

    The issue is pretty light on any actual plot, opting to maintain the formula set by some of the other tie-ins, but we do get to see the effect the overarching event is having through a different lens. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Apr 11, 2015

    Cully Hammer just nails the art, which he did back during some of Renee's back-up features. He draws some amazing, detailed women without an ounce of cheesecake. They look as rough and awesome as they really are, with the action up close and personal. Seriously, this creative team and these characters are near the top of my comic book wish list.

    The Batman Universe - Jim Remolde Apr 10, 2015

    There is not a lot of action but there was good character development especially with this Harvey Dent. I am curious as to the relationship of the Huntress and Renee. Are they living together and if so are they lovers? It was reveled in New 52 that Batwoman and Renee were lovers themselves at one time. I am interested to see where this is going. Read Full Review
