The Vanier Report: Tales From A DC Pull List (Convergence: Wonder Woman #2 Review)

“Nothing except a battle lost can be half so melancholy as a battle won.” The famous words of the Duke of Wellington echo loudly through Larry Hama’s concluding chapter of Convergence: Wonder Woman, even going so far as to paraphrase the quote at the story’s conclusion. As Wonder Woman and the vampire Joker square off, Steve Trevor has to fight off a horde of newly turned vampires, as well as Red Rain’s Poison Ivy and Catwoman.

The Vanier Report: Tales From A DC Pull List (Wonder Woman #38 Review)

Let me start this review off with an apology.
