    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Jun 1, 2015

    With the planet rumbling and shifting into the main universe, the next goal is clear. Kal and Karen have to face the threat behind this world, at this point it being Deimos. They say goodbye to their partners and head into battle as super-cousins. I like as they streak to battle, Clark tells Karen how much he loves her. I love it when the super-family is a super family! Convergence was an odd mini-series, convoluted and discombobulated. The associated mini-series were a mixed bag. Some I thought were excellent reimaginings of some beloved characters from my past. Others fell short. This issue was mostly a brawl between heroes but it included some plot progression, some character turns, and some spot on characterization for this era Power Girl. Add to that the clean art of St. Aubin and Parsons, this mini-series was an entertaining story, one of the better Convergence crossovers I read. Read Full Review

    C level visuals bring this A level story to a B. An artistic letdown. Read Full Review

    This issue also suffers from the fact that it doesn't reach a satisfying conclusion. It merely sets the stage for the characters to appear in the core Convergence mini-series and ends abruptly. Had this book maintained a clearer focus and a more standalone storyline, it could have been something special. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt May 27, 2015

    In the end there are a host of problems with the entire series, and this part of Convergence is worse off for having been associated with it. In a certain context it is interest to see all of these characters together, but especially when read with other Convergence titles and also when considering the plan for the future releases of DC Comics this summer, then we learn that this short two month interlude has really mostly meant nothing. It never excelled and only acted as a distraction from the regular titles from DC. This issue captures that, and it is too bad that it couldn't have captured something better. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner May 28, 2015

    I wish I could recommend this issue, but between the stiff dialogue and the forced story, I just can't.  The art was really good, but in the end, this was another Convergence tie-in that ended with a whimper...a possibly some time traveling. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson May 30, 2015

    Stilted dialogue, strangely bulbous and inconsistent art, and a big unanswered question… (Also: It ties into Convergence #6, which came out two weeks ago, making it feel out of date already.) Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jun 1, 2015

    "Convergence: Action Comics" #2 is the sort of comic where the one-sentence pitch sounds reasonable, but there's no energy to make the final comic stand out. That's a shame, especially coming in the final week of "Convergence," where the tie-ins needed to either go big or go home. Here, unfortunately, it didn't go big at all; aside from the great cover from Amanda Conner, there's nothing that will linger in readers' minds for very long. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Brian Bannen Jun 1, 2015

    The only thing consistent about this issue are the colors provided by Lovern Kindzierski and Hi-Fi, but this doesn't excuse every other poor design of this comic. Luckily, Convergence is over so we can all put this comic behind us and move on to hopefully better issues to come. Read Full Review
