    While the story is still leading to a confrontation with the Atomic Knights of Durvale, themselves an alternative future of a post-apocalyptic Earth, it packs in more heart and insight into the characters of this era than many of its contemporaries have done to date. Convergence: Legion of Super-Heroes #1 may follow a similar structure to all of the other event titles in this series, in that it is ultimately leading up to a confrontation, but how many of those have knights in armor riding around on the backs of giant dalmatians?

    These Convergence titles are frustrating. They have often been a tease, giving me a tiny taste of something I miss but not delivering 100%. This is a Legion I miss. These are characters I love. And there are whiffs of characterization I miss. But it isn't perfect. And there are some missteps. Read Full Review

    How much you enjoy Convergence: Superboy and the Legion of Superheroes #1 will greatly depend on your nostalgia for the characters -- you'll either be weeping as they touch on the highs and lows that the team has faced, or you'll just wonder what all these Lads and Lasses are doing in such funny costumes.

    Convergence: Superboy and the Legion isn't the best of the Convergence tie-ins, or even the Superman category of tie-ins, but it's still an interesting read. Not a lot happens in it, but it does a good job at making the reader care about the characters. The final-page stinger that teases the next issue is just enough to keep readers interested in the follow-up chapter. It's a fun read. Read Full Review

    While I had a good time with the art in this book, I found the story lacking in anything that could grab someone's attention and keep it.  By the end I was just bored with the useless conversations that were used just to get us to the end of the issue.  Nothing much going on here.

    A piss poor showing that doesn't do much to explain anything and artwork I regret paying for i'd pass on this unless you must have all Legion appearances to date. Read Full Review

    Very wonky art, and an odd tone makes for a mostly unsatisfying reading experience… Interesting balance of characters, though. Read Full Review

    It's lackluster, and if I wasn't a Legion completist, I wouldn't even bother with the next issue, and keep hoping that someone comes along with a clear vision of what to do with the Legion one day. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Apr 25, 2015

    I feel slapped by DC for the way this book turned out. Again, this company has shown they have no clue, or don't care, about what to do with this team of heroes who are being killed by mediocre efforts. An utter failure. Read Full Review
