I guess I didn't realize that most of the titles were a battle I don't care about.. I'm severely underwhelemed by Nightwing/Oracle and The Question. The only one that was decent of what I read was Teen Titans. Also didn't realize we would just be expected to know which world each city is from.
i agree, i feel we are not being tempted to actually buy anything really, 2 months savings being made
Peace and War - Lost in time and place.. tks for nothing Tellos
Liked a lot of the titles so far. I feel like they could have put the catch-up part of the books that are placed in the back, at the front. After the first tie-in confused me, I've started reading the last two pages first and things are a lot clearer going forward.

This book and the tie-ins feel like a really good companion to Crisis on Infinite Earths. Loved this weeks Adventures of Superman. DC keep making Supergirl such a great character regardless of which version. And The Flash was a suprise. Don't know why but the modern artwork on the pre-crisis Flash threw me for a second, but I loved the references to the Trial of the Flash and the aftermath of that story.
I've been rather lukewarm on the tie-ins overall. Of what I have read, a couple have been very good (The Question was the standout), some have been rough (the writing in Shadow of the Bat was TERRIBLE) but the majority have been just okay.
I skipped the superman/supergirl books but given that they have been seemingly universally acclaimed here I might just have to pick them up (when they are discounted, hopefully, because these $4 books are killing me).

Just read last week's Convergence #4 and noticed that DC seem to be throwing a bone to fans of the golden age DC heroes. Its not a return to those characters but it is an acknowledgement that those heroes and that continuity stills exists, on Earth 2 at least. They even explicitly reference Flash of Two Worlds.
This my not be much, but it is another in a series of small steps in the right direction DC have taken in recent months (Batgirl redesign, Starfire redesign, post-Convergence all-ages books, etc.). Here's hoping they take a few more.
