    Though many of the “snatched from the timeline” elements of the story still don't align correctly, at least DC is trying something different. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj May 26, 2015

    Lobdell writing. Supergirl featured prominently in a Crisis-esque mini-series. No solo book. A possible 'new version', more like the show's Kara, possibly on the horizon. Could Supergirl die in the next issue??? But, rather than dwell on ugly possibilities, I'll concentrate on the fun. I was entertained. And that's all I can ask for. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk May 20, 2015

    Convergence #7 delivered excitement and set the stage for a fantastic ending for this big event. It is too bad that we know this big event is going to end with a giant re-set button. And it is too bad this event was not that engaging for the first five issues. But, at least we are getting a wild action packed ending. Those of us who stuck with this event after the first five issue are getting paid for our loyalty. Read Full Review

    Comix I Read - Boris Roberto Aguilar May 20, 2015

    Even after writing most of this review I feel as though I have very mixed feelings with this event and this issue. Overall, the event hasn't been horrible and this issue really sets things up for a helluva final issue. This issue felt a bit scrambled but we did get a amount of plot progression. The art continues to be the strong point of this series and I have really enjoyed seeing each and every page. The colors are wonderful and each and every page is fantastic to look at. While this issue of CONVERGENCE was average, I am really excited to read the finale to see where the DC universe stands when its all said and done. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Loukas May 21, 2015

    It's probably too easy to compare a comic book arc to a passage of music. Being different art forms that depend on different senses, any analogies are always going to be inexact and possibly misleading. But sometimes the comparison is simply too apt to ignore, such as the case of Convergence #7. Here we have a theme that comes to its climax too quickly in a forced resolution full of dissonant chords and jarring, unharmonized notes. It is as if the orchestra momentarily falls apart, with the strings racing ahead of the woodwinds and the brass forlornly trailing two measures behind while the percussion just doesn't know what the devil is going on.

    Batman-News - Brandon Mulholand May 22, 2015

    This issue easily highlights the single coolest and yet most equally redundant moment of the entire Convergence story line. However, if all you're really interested in is fighting, then you've come to the right place. This issue features non stop action, albeit, without a lot of reasoning behind it. It's also a treat for the eye, featuring several images worthy of poster treatment. Read Full Review

    However, with only one issue left, it does feel like there is a lot to cram in to one final issue. Will it be enough? We'll know in a weeks time when Convergence finally wraps up. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen May 21, 2015

    It's nice to see Convergence actually picking up steam this late in the game. The lack of a good villain is dampening the book's appeal, but at least the scale of the conflict and the cast of characters is where it needed to be all along. Lopresti also delivers a solid set of pages for this issue, albeit some riddled with art and continuity errors. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett May 20, 2015

    The issue, like the previous ones, is just ok. This event is a rarity in that the tie-ins are much stronger than the main series, the opposite of the usual. The big thing though is how DC sticks the landing with the next issue, and what comes next. That in the end is how this event will be judged for the better or worse. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Michael Bowie May 26, 2015

    Ive long thought the most interesting part of this event would end up being whatever spilled out the other side of it and after seven issues Ive yet to see anything to change that opinion. Its a strange thing to say after seven weeks and seventy-seven issues with the word Convergence on the cover, but it really feels like Jeff King and Scott Lobdell just have not had the time to tell the story that theyve been trying to tell. Who knows though? Maybe the final issue will bring things together in a nice, satisfying conclusion. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd May 22, 2015

    If you havent been following along the past 7 weeks theres not much reason to jump on board now, but I wouldnt jump ship either. Theres enough teased for the finale to keep one around for one more week. The fate of DCs history hangs in the balance- is this a farewell or welcome back? Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza May 21, 2015

    Overall, "Convergence" #7 is one of the more impressive issues of the series, from art to cast to cliffhanger. It's just a shame this is the penultimate issue in the series. Surely, no one would have minded reading the action in "Convergence" #7 had it filled the pages of "Convergence" #2. King and Lobdell have found a way to inject some excitement but, with only one issue left, I'm holding out hope the writers can find the trigger to expand the scope and also find a way to bring this whole series to a satisfying conclusion.

    Fanboys Inc - Jeff Ayers May 22, 2015

    It's a lot of fun seeing all these characters on the same pages together. But still, the same boring premise bogs down the whole Convergence event. The last issue comes out next week and we can all put this behind us. Read Full Review

    Yet Another Media Site - Kevin Finnigan May 21, 2015

    Jeff King and Scott Lobdell spend more time this week on the New 52 heroes, even if they have nothing to do with the event so far. It feels like a last ditch effort to connect the fans who started reading DC comics after the New 52 launched. They should have been a bigger part of this event in the first place. The character work is decent enough once the focus is off Deimos and Telos. The New 52 characters fair the best, which makes me wish they were around in the comic more. Kind and Lobdell can't find a single thread of interesting character development for Telos, who continues to be a vanilla wafer of a character. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Alexander Handziuk May 26, 2015

    The problem with Convergence is that on paper it had all of the components to make a fun and interesting series but the execution has been muddled as it has focused more on the destination than the journey and thinly has ultimately failed to capitalize on its great potential. That being said this weeks cliffhanger at least redeems the issue in the sense that it makes the reader want to return for the finale. If you've made it this far one more week is not going to kill you and who knows the journey might even lead to one heck of a destination. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea May 20, 2015

    Having heroes throughout time and space fighting one another might come off as a very simple plot, but it's something that I've really wanted to see in this event and even though it's very brief here, it should give you a nerdgasm at the sight of it.  Besides for that and some really excellent art, this issue really has the feeling of things simply happening "just because" and doesn't do much to boost my opinion of this event.

  • 5.5 - John McCubbin May 20, 2015

    Convergence #7 may not do enough to rectify the poor showing of prior issues, but it does have this fan excited going into next week's finale. Having a fast tempo, and exciting action, it's easy to forget how bad this event is (even if only for a second), with the climax being breathtaking. Just a shame that it's too little, too late.

    GWW - Brad Bell May 20, 2015

    In reality the answer would probably be because that version of Green Lantern was just summoned to the Telos Vs. Deimos showdown, but in our reality it was so DC could make a few more bucks off it's readers. The saving grace of this issue comes as the death of Telos cracks reality throughout the multiverse, which will apparently have some sort of impact on the state of the DCU when “Convergence” ends and “Darkseid War” begins. The reason because at some point, and no one knows where, Deimos adsorbed the powers of time travelers, and his death as alluded to in this issue will not only impact the future, but DC history as whole. Now if only I could take advantage of this crack in reality to travel to the end of March 2015, and tell myself to read “Secret Wars” over “Convergence”. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Jarrod Jones May 25, 2015

    That kind of reverence is refreshing, if not a little bittersweet. As we watch all the heroes we've grown up reading hurtle through the pages in their fully realized glory, there's a nagging feeling that this might be the last time we ever see these characters again. With yet another reboot right around the corner, the DC Universe is becoming more unrecognizable than ever. And with sales (and really corny marketing gimmicks) being DC editorial's primary focus, things look to be changing for the worse. Considering everything long-standing DC fans have been through with these super-people, one can't shake the feeling that everybody " superhero and reader alike " deserved better. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose May 21, 2015

    Have you ever said the same word over and over again, until it just stopped making sense? That's basically what has happened with Convergence, which has so many different iterations of Superman and the rest of the DC Universe that it doesn't add up to any narrative conclusion. Read Full Review

    This mini started out with a sputter but I've enjoyed the heck out of the past few issues, just fun old school comic books with a great set-up for the finale.

    Convergence will never be as good as Flashpoint or Forever Evil but the final act has been entertaining for the most part. Thing is I'm ready for it to be over. Deimos was always kinda lame and we all know the heroes wouldn't stay mad at each other forever. Also Telos is probably gonna sacrifice himself to save the world or worlds or alternate timelines/realities/red version and blue version of the original Pokemon games. So all in all, his character has so far been a huge waste of potential. And I'm still a little upset how they dealt with the badass version of Brainiac. He just poof, disappears? Well to be honest Deimos kinda does the same thing too. Hopefully issue 8 ends with a huge action gangbang orgy and we can restart the regular series whose previews actually look pretty awesome. I actually think DC streamlining their titles for the sake of quality over quantity is a welcome move and I look forward to the stories ahead. June can't come soon enough. Farewell New 52, after 3 years calling you new is a bit of an oxymoron anyways.

    I dont see how this can have a satisfactory ending. This issue is not only jokingly short, it aslo has one of the most absurd moments I've read in a comic, in which a quiet conversation between 2 characters in the middle of a gigantic and chaotic fight between the characters of all the multiverse, suddenly stops the whole fight and makes the bad guys help the heroes
