The Vanier Report: Tales From A DC Pull List (Convergence: Hawkman #1 Review)

We are now three weeks into Convergence and things are starting to come together. The main title is picking up speed and seems to have a decent pace, and a number of the tie-in issues have been enjoyable reminiscences of continuities long since passed. And yet, despite the obvious nostalgic pleasure of this event, something which has plagued the first issues of nearly every tie-in title has been the sense that none of it matters. That same message of existential dread is woven throughout Jeff Parker’s script in Convergence: Hawkman #1, as Katar and Shayera try to maintain some normalcy in to their lives in the domed pre-Crisis Gotham City.
