Worst of 2015: Worst Comic Event

In our opinion you can't have a "Best of" list without the "Worst of" to go with it. Welcome to our worst picks of 2015. Think of it like the Razzies for comics. Each writer will make their own pick so sit back enjoy "Worst Comic Event".


DUSTIN: Secret Wars (Marvel Comics)

Secret Wars wins because at least Convergence was funny. I mean it was funny to me. Secret Wars had its head up its own ass so far that it was buying its own shit. It thought and acted like it was cool, but really it was just a freshmen showing up to first day of school wearing a jean jacket and everyone else is wearing windbreakers.

KEVIN: Secret Wars (Marvel Comics)

You'll have to listen to the CBMFP to hear all about Kevin's choice!


JAMES: Convergence (DC Comics)

I tried to go against the grain and find another event that was at least a little bit bad that I could harp on. But with this DC disaster, there was no possible way. It is just way too bad to put into words. I can't even think of anything good to say about it. It was poorly planned, poorly executed, and was a poor excuse from one of the "Bigs" even for their standards.

STEVE: Convergence (DC Comics)


ASA:  Convergence (DC Comics)

Oh DC, why did I ever hold out hope for you? I can't know this was the case, but Convergence reads as a hurried attempt to steal momentum from the far superior 'Secret Wars'. While that book involved years of planning, this one involved a series of two-issue mini that seemingly taunted fans with older continuity they missed while bogging each of them down with a larger event no one cared for. But then again, maybe I am just grumpy that two issues of oddness are the last I may ever see from Greg Rucka's 'The Question' and that is unforgivable.

DAVID:  Convergence (DC Comics)

OK, I'll be honest: I only read the first issue. But that's all I could stomach. Perhaps because of its fast-paced release schedule (eight issues in two months) Convergence felt rushed, with an uninteresting plot and without even some nice art to look at - usually a silver lining of most event comics. The tie-ins were equally disappointing as it became abundantly clear that two issues simply isn't enough time to re-establish pre-New 52 characters, and give them something interesting to do before throwing them into the broader conflict. A disappointing series made all the more disappointing by how shockingly competent Marvel's annual event has been in comparison.
