Hello there readers and fans of the Comic Book forays that I have been putting out there on the PiercingMetal site, we are at the fourth week of DC Comics big “Convergence” initiative and that means the end of part one of this universe shattering illustrated drama which can be found in numerous titles available this week. The regular titles are on hold while this storyline runs and that still has a few weeks left to go. Here we go.
Convergence #4: Inside Skartaris, the heroes of Earth-2 must face the only man who can stop them from finding the missing Time Travelers – but why would Travis Morgan, aka The Warlord, want to kill them? Meanwhile, Telos takes the captive Dick Grayson to several of the battling cities to prove the futility of challenging him. And whatever you do, do not miss the final page, as the surprising return of an unexpected villain could crush all hope for salvation and seal the doom of everyone on the planet!

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m looking forward to this week’s installment of the Convergence because of some of my favorite character reads being involved in it. Yeah I love the Superman and Batman stuff for sure but for quite a few years I was following “Infinity Inc.”, “Justice Society Of America” and “SHAZAM!”. Also, who among you does not enjoy a little “Plastic Man” adventuring? Teaming him up with the Freedom Fighters sure piques me. I also admit to having a little bit of a soft spot for The Seven Soldiers Of Victory so nice to see them in the mix. Alright, back again in a few days with the week five offerings from this massive cross-title initiative.
