    Some might complain that this issue is boring or isn't action-y enough for them and if that's the case then I believe that this issue wasn't for them in the first place.  Like the aging characters themselves, this story takes it time and lets us understand how completely insignificant our Golden Age Earth 2 heroes feel at this point in time.  It's just a really nice addition to this Convergence event that allows us to feel the vulnerability of these heroes and it rocks one hell of an awesome cliffhanger.  Definitely check this one out.

    Without trying to cram too much story into a single issue, Convergence: Justice Society of America #1 is not a victim to the debilitating Convergence story device. Readers get a glimpse into these characters and who they are before getting dragged into the motley summer event. Read Full Review

    Yes, Convergence: Justice Society of America #1 is a slow-paced affair, but that doesn't detract from its appeal. Entirely free from super-heroics and almost entirely a rumination about what it means to be powerless, Convergence: Justice Society of America #1 is a thoughtful and carefully worded book that sets the stage for what should be a cathartic finale.

    An issue that takes an interesting angle, putting it in the upper echelon of Convergence books. Read Full Review

    A missed opportunity that neither wows nor shocks, Convergence: Justice Society of America #1 is a far too long lead-in to a story I now dont have as much confidence in as Id like. The core of these heroes is missing, and its not because theyre old necessarily. Its because the spark that made them what they are is gone. And thats almost worse than not having them back at all.
