COMIC REVIEW: FTN reviews Batman/Superman (The UK re-print)

December 16th, 2013 by Sarah Barclay Comments

Writers: Greg Pak (Batman/Superman) & Tom Taylor (Injustice)

Published by DC Comics

Batman and Superman are best friends, you say? Well, they weren’t always like that. And it’s never a good friendship if there isn’t a fight every once in a while.

This special reprint of the popular DC monthly contains some of the superbros’ most recent fights against each other, ranging from when they first met to a disagreement on the policy of how to be a hero. While these stories are from different universes, one being main continuity and the other the Injustice video game-verse, each story is a stellar example of the one of the oldest friendships on Earth.

Overall, I like how this book is laid out, with the Batman/Superman story first, followed by the Injustice chapters. Though, I do wish there was a little bit of fanfare, let’s say, between the chapters, instead of going straight from the last page of Bats/Supes into Injustice. Like an intro or title page. I also kind of wonder why the ‘letters’ section splits up the Injustice chapters. But, as a whole it works; since the Injustice section is suppose to be the special, not the main feature, therefore should come second.

I must say, if you’ve ever thought about jumping onto either series, be it Batman/Superman or Injustice, then I would definitely recommend getting this volume. It’s really got everything you need to get started!

Self proclaimed as hilarious, Sarah is a strange mixture of weird human and sports fan. Hailing from Pittsburgh, PA (but currently studying photography in Ohio) she spends most of her time running into tables and tripping over herself while waiting for a TARDIS to show up in the courtyard. If not in a tree or receiving medical attention, she can be found on the tweeter-box (@alfredthebatcat) ranting about ice hockey, baseball or her undying love of Dick Grayson.
