  • Ah, another collection of comics from when I was a young un This stuff is pure gold, in my opinion It s quite difficult to get hold of specific comics you remember fondly DC, in particular, isn t actively re printing their 80s stuff in collected editions there are some exceptions, like the Justice League International collections which are still in circulation, and stuff like Grant Morrison s Animal Man run that is available on the Vertigo imprint.So, I was extremely excited to get hold of this [...]


  • Nice little crossover tale, as well as a good time capsule of early ish post Crisis Superman Obviously, these issues was collected in anticipation of the upcoming Batman vs Superman film, but don t hold that against it This starts with Action Comics Annual 1 which was already reprinted in Superman The Man of Steel, Vol 6 Having read that volume, I skipped this annual this time around This 1987 tale by John Byrne and Art Adams has no connection to the rest of the stories released in 1990, except [...]


  • I ve read this as the original comic issues, and this is one of my favorite Superman Batman stories so far I m glad it s going to be collected in to a trade paperback, because it s really good The art is good, although not yet as good as in the 90s comics, and I suppose the TPB edition will be re colored which will be a plus The main story about the missing kryptonite ring is really good and has some very awesome moments, especially at the end, also, the two main hero characters are written perf [...]



  • I ordered this while I was on a big Superman kick And, yes, this was a pretty good collection, especially since it highlighted Superman and Batman at a time when they were still trying to figure each other out The first comic, being vampire based, was a nice creepy read especially with Halloween season nearly here The comic that was basically DC s darker re imagining of Marvel s Fantastic Four was also a fascinating little romp into a much realistic and tragic what if The actual storyline adver [...]


  • It has been difficult for DC to figure out how to maintain the Superman and Batman friendship following the Crisis on Infinite Earths story line They seem to have found their stride though, by making Batman the detective who can figure out the clues that Superman cannot Not a big fan of the Kryptonite ring though, but we ll see how it goes.


  • This was a great time for Superman Four years after the post crisis reboot, spearheaded by John Byrne The first story is written by Byrne and drawn by Arthur Adams, who was at this time verly clearly Byrne influenced in his drawing style It is, surprisingly the weakest story in the book, and unrelated to the others stories, which build upon each other, as successive issues often do After this first, silly, story from Action Comics Annual 1 1987 , in which Supes and Bats team up to rid a small to [...]


  • Proof that Batman and Superman can meet and not try to kill each other or cause massive amounts of collateral damage Written shortly after DC s company wide reboot in 1986, these stories offer some of the earliest meetings between the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight in the new continuity After a one off story involving vampires in which Superman is so concerned about killing that he has to fall back on vampire lore to tell the difference between the actual undead and innocent living people who [...]


  • When a woman confronts Clark Kent in a graveyard brandishing a ring made of kryptonite she forces the Man of Steel to confess his secret identity When the same ring turns up weeks later in a frsf homeless man s possession in Gotham City, Batman traces the man s recent trip to Metropolis There the Dark Knight joins forces with Superman to uncover the ring s past and the identity of the cemetery assailant.This was a good story from the 80s featuring a revamped World s Finest when they still have a [...]


  • In the mid 1980 s, DC rebooted their heroes In this new version, Batman and Superman are no longer Best Buds The 1st story is from 1987, and is a stand alone Though they are both in the story, Bats and Supes have only a scene or two together The main story here is from 1990 Batman is looking into a murder, and Superman is looking for the owner of a kryptonite ring, who knows he is really Clark Kent It is a nice story,and I enjoyed looking back at it I sometimes get tired of the Batman Superman f [...]


  • Excellent set of stories Set some time after the events of the Eradicator storyline Its great to have Clark and Superman team up to deal with a few things.Kind of funny that the first story details the World s Finest taking on a Louisiana vampire That s right, long before Sookie Stackhouse.Other really cool things involve the final flight of the Excalibur and the death of its crew Which would lead to something far twisted as this is the debut of Hank Henshaw.But the main story includes a Krypto [...]


  • It s fun reading these old stories This group of stories show Superman and Batman working together to solve a few cases along with trying to stop Intergang from going after Cat Grant Plus, the romance between Lois and Clark.


  • This was interesting The first story felt like a Vertigo book I kept expecting Swamp Thing to show up The title story was the part that had my attention Dr Henshaw before he was Cyborg Superman, Batman obtaining the Kryptonite ring, Superman s secret exposed Good stuff.


  • 3.5 Stars.A fun collection that pairs Batman Superman in an early 90s tale Also collects a wacky Bats Supes adventure featuring a vampire, which is also collected in Man of Steel Vol 6 A treat for Superman fans and Batman completists, but those not raised on comics will find this a non event.


  • I miss this type of storytelling in recent superhero comics It s not trying to hard to be good, and it s good.


  • Good book not great Still, nice little crossover story with Superman and Batman The first story I didn t really enjoy, vampires etc Not keen The rest was good ok.





  • This is a very interesting book I hope that they use the final dialogue between Superman Batman in the new movie It would be amazing
