    So overall this was a fine if maybe overly stuffed issue. Between all the characters and all the plots, this felt a bit too busy. Maybe I wanted to get more John Henry and less of these others. And frankly, I have little use for Gen13. Still, this wasn't a bad issue. I was entertained. It was good to see these characters again. Simonson captures everyone's voices nicely. Brigman's art is solid and classic. But I wonder if this story would be better served with three issues instead of two. Read Full Review

    Convergence: Man of Steel #1 is a good comic book. It uses its cast well, finds a good balance between light-hearted moments and a serious story, and provides a lot of cool action. This is one title you don't want to miss out on. Read Full Review

    While this issue isn't the Steel spotlight that I was hoping for when going into this book, it does present Steel in an awesome way where he is the last line of defense against Metropolis falling into complete chaos since he's still out and about in a world where powers are gone and technology rules.  A lot of battles throughout but the thing that will make you come back next issue is the shocking cliffhanger that spells doom for the Pre-Zero Hour Metropolis........... Yeah, that's a little over the top but I know I'm looking forward to issue two. Read Full Review

    If you want an issue full of extended actions scenes, but without much plot, then this is the issue for you. Its awesome seeing Steel in the spotlight, and Id love to see more of Steel in comic books, but this issue didnt seem like the best way to go about him. Read Full Review

    "Convergence: Superman: Man of Steel" #1 is a pleasant first issue, in no small part because of how Simonson and Brigman bring back good memories of these characters. At the same time, there's also no doubting that the book needs to pick up the pace just a tad bit more. Hopefully, the conclusion next month will wrap things up at a good clip; in the end, it's not bad, but it could also be a little less nostalgic and a little more exciting. It's a good start and, now that the setup is over, I want things to kick into high gear. Hopefully, that's what's just around the corner. Read Full Review

    Theres no time for character development before things go south, which is this issues biggest weakness. Read Full Review

    A disappointing visual experiment. I don't know if I'll purchase the conclusion. Read Full Review
