STARRING HEROES FROM CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS! Older and in full retirement under the dome, members of the Justice Society get the chance to regain their youth to stave off forces from the Qward Universe. But the promise of youth comes with a deadly price!
As with all of these Convergence books, this sounds like a fun romp, especially with Dan Abnett at the helm. Tom Derenick has a smooth style which should translate nicely with the bold, old fashioned uniforms of the JSA, especially with Scott's embellishment. I even like the cover, wherein Dan Panosian has tapped a sort of Howard Chaykin vibe. Flash, GL, Dr. Fate, and Hawkman all sport a sort of "real world fantastic" aesthetic which is a good fit for the original mystery men. The Chip Kidd variant features Jay Garrick.
Convergence is shaping up to be a fairly decent investment for me, but with all these books being only two-parters, I can afford to indulge a little bit -- especially when we are getting so many old favorites back. What about you -- will Convergence: Justice Society of America make it into your pull box?
