Join us as we talk to writer/director Drew Hall about his latest genre-spanning film, the psychological thriller titled Convergence.
DC Comics really goes the distance with issue #1 of Convergence: Swamp Thing. They did everything right from the vintage-looking title design and coloring to the interior pages of the first chapter of a two-part limited series. The publisher recruited character co-creator Len Wein and partnered him with penciller Kelley Jones, who brought his own vision of the creature to life in the 1990s. The only way this debut could have been any more legitimate is if they got the other half of the creative team (Bernie Wrightson) to draw the book. Maybe I’m asking too much now.
Convergence is officially underway in the Universe of DC Comics as issue 1 hits newsstands. We’ve heard it before and I’m sure we’ll all hear it again. The ever so familiar catch phrase, “Everything we know is about to change,” is delivered once again. Can we truly expect something that will alter everything we know and keep it that way forever? Probably not, but the whole temporarily earth-shattering event can be a lot of fun to take in as it unfolds before us in the meantime.
