Review: The Omega Men #1

Written by Tom King

“We will not hurt you. We are friends.”

Convergence is finally over and that means DC is pumping out a whole bunch of new #1s and The Omega Men instantly propelled itself up to the top of my DC pull list. The concept of space terrorists/ freedom fighters who may or may not have killed Kyle Rayner, the Green Lantern I grew up reading, was just too much to ignore. So is The Omega Men #1 a knock out of the park breakthrough title, total crap, or something else altogether? I’ll tell you one thing, it definitely wasn’t what I was expecting.

Convergence Roundup: Week 1

As the resident DC guy and most likely the only reader of Convergence at Outright Geekery, the responsibility falls on me to fill you in on this event. Unfortunately, Convergence is so huge and has so many different tie ins that there is no way I can give each issue a full length review with the exception of the main series which can be found here. With that out of the way, lets review some tie ins.

I’m not going to lie. I was not impressed with last week’s Convergence #0. I felt it was too much of an exposition dump and that most of what was going on in that issue did not ultimately matter. Thankfully, now that this event has actually begun in earnest, I can say that it might actually have a chance at being good. This incredibly shocking considering who is all involved in this project, but I actually thought this issue was kind of fun.

It is kind of hard to believe but April is already here and that means DC’s big universe shattering event Convergence is upon us. I know many comic fans, myself included, are very skeptical about this event and for good reason. Does DC really need another Crisis style event so soon after establishing the New 52? I can’t remember the last time I actually read anything from Dan Jurgens that was actually good. Why is a total newcomer like Jeff King writing a major event like this? All of these things really don’t give many readers much confidence going in to this event. Never fear, though. I hashed out the $4.99 this week so I will give you the low down on whether or not this is actually worth your time or whether you should save some money for two months.
