    I never would have thought that this title could have been as decent as it was. Besides for being pulled down a bit with an overly annoying character like Scribbly Jibbet, I really had fun reading this issue and for all my complaints about Jibbet, he still conveyed a sweet superhero fan boy naivety that was a surprisingly hopeful element to all the doom and gloom of a Earth 2 Metropolis stuck under a dome. Definitely a book that came out of left field for me and won me over. Read Full Review

    Lovely art and a brand-new perspective on the Convergence, which is exciting even though it might cause a paradox or two" Read Full Review

    Finally, there's a strange disconnect between "Convergence: World's Finest Comics" #1 and how the other books show us the sequence of events where the domes come down. Here, Telos actually scoops up Sir Justin and Scribbly in his massive hands and places them elsewhere. This feels like a slight glitch, which someone in editorial should have caught because of the huge difference in how this plays out. In the end, the idea behind "Convergence: World's Finest Comics" #1 and the execution is sorely lacking. Maybe the conclusion will play more into the idea behind the comic but, for the moment, this is a big disappointment. Read Full Review

    This was a decent tie-in issue. While there are some differences in the way Telos interfaces with Shining Knight compared to other series, it seemed to be explained. There was genuine pathos with Sir Justin and Victory's story. The story and art are in keeping with the tone of the 70s which I believe was intentional. Thanks to Mr. Levitz and Mr. Fern for a trip down memory lane!
