    Greg Pak is building a story that's very personal to Superman and offers some more history on Krypton. With the Fortress of Solitude still out of commission, it's nice to see that we can still receive some Kryptonian information. Bruce, Clark, and Kara make a great team and this issue sets up what appears to be an pivotal next act. Worth the price $3.99 price tag. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Feb 18, 2015

    Greg Pak finally reveals who Superman's Joker and I really liked it.  It's someone with recent dealings with the Man of Steel and makes so much sense.  Ardian Syaf draws the hell out of this issue, but in the end, it's all just setup for next month's finale.  However, it is a hell of a setup and has me wishing it was March already.

    I almost feel like DC should let Pak run Action, writing stories just as he has been. Let Superman be the 'classic' book (as Johns seemed to be doing). And Batman/Superman can be a wild card. This has been very good arc, well-paced with both big action moments and smaller, powerful character moments too. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - TBU Contributor Feb 18, 2015

    Batman/Superman is a book that just continues to get better. The current story arc is the finest in the series to date. Although the idea is not completely original, Pak has taken a tried story and made it his own. Coupled with art that is for the most part consistently good, this is a book that I would highly recommend to any comic book fan. Read Full Review

    The art does sometimes hinder the story, as the rotating inkers bring different textures to Ardian Syaf's pencils and create an inconsistent and sometimes rough look. Read Full Review

    If youre reading this storyline, you certainly dont want to miss this. It sets up the next chapter, but is not all that exciting on its own. However, it does present enough interesting ideas that if you were to pick this up on a whim, youd be drawn in to the situation and have a hard time not coming back next month. Read Full Review
