Okay, I was going through my pile of Convergence tie-ins (I picked up ALL of them)...

And I started to notice something that bothered the heck out of me...

I think I'm within page limits on this, based on previous posts... Some of these issues have been posted before, but unless I missed something, not the full four pages, or this repeats the content.

No more than one full page of the Convergence tie ins for: Superboy, Man of Steel, Suicide Squad, Green Lantern/Parallax, or Matrix Supergirl.

Since people seemed to like the Batman: Arkham story I posted a while ago, I thought that people might be interested in another Elseworld, one that takes... a little bit of a different route to most of the others.

Anyone read Convergence Supergirl Matrix? Those of us here who read Matrix's adventures back in the early 90s and the transition into PAD's title/merging with Linda Danvers know that she was the first Supergirl to appear on New Earth after the Crisis reboot and was NEVER named Kara. The whole story kind of seemed like a shit show, from Lex verbally abusing Mae, to the assumption that Mae knew about him being the first Lex Luthor and wanting to kill Superman to of course the name mistake of him calling her Kara.

the first comic gives the feel of "I don't give a shit and never bothered to read anything on Matrix". I really hope when DC puts all the Convergence issues into one volume, some of this is fixed, ESP the name mistake tho at this point I don't even know if anyone has noticed it at DC. I'm hoping the second issue has no name mistakes.

I'm almost tempted to make all the bubbles blank in the issue and re-write it. BTW there should be a "char: supergirl/matrix" tag for this forum as she technically is a different character before becoming Linda in the PAD series.

The Penultimate issue of Marvel's GI Joe series (and a rare non-Larry Hama issue)... features Roadblock getting more than he bargained for on his vacation.

I'm tired of these ****-ing Cobras, on this ****-ing plane! )

Geoff Johns:"Darkseid is almost an idea. We want to elevate him in that way. He's not a guy to me who runs around and smashes walls and gets in giant fights. He's very strategic and very restrained. If he lifts a finger, a city is destroyed. He's just ultra-powerful, both physically and psychologically. So the way we're playing Darkseid is that he's very methodical and very confident. He's sure of himself in what he believes is the right state of existence for everything and every being. It's all about him and his will. We'll play with that a lot.

And then with Anti-Monitor, you'll see in the prologue in issue #40 that we'll start to peel back some layers on who he is. It's a very different take, and he's different than what you see on the surface. He looks like a universe-eater -- this big force of anti-matter that's very bombastic. But there's actually a lot more to the character than that. We're playing into that idea, and there will be this clash of ideals between Anti-Monitor and Darkseid that will take this much deeper than a simple revenge story or a simple "Let's destroy the universe" story. They both have very personal goals and very personal stakes in this war, and they'll do anything to achieve them."

"I’m actually quite proud of how well Holy F*ck respects an individual’s right to choose what they want to believe in. The operative idea here being choice, because what I don’t respect is when people are told what to believe in (or even worse, when they’re manipulated into holding a set of beliefs).
But regardless of how I intellectualize the philosophy behind the story, it’s clearly a raunchy satire. The idea is to laugh along as a character like Jesus is ripped from his accepted biblical context & thrust into the archetype of an 80s action movie tough guy. It’s about subverting expectation & playing with assumptions."

Normally I'm not one who looks too deep into these kind of things, but I swear the subtext just jumps off the page that I don't know if it can even be considered subtext anymore. Read more... )
