    This issue rounds out theTruth arc for this series, though it's springing directly into the next arc, so if you've gotten this far, and you end up liking this issue, definitely do come back for the next installment of the Man of Jeans/Bat-Bunny reluctant partnership. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Terry Miles, Jr. Nov 15, 2015

    Gordon and Kent both prove that without a doubt, they're willing to put everything on the line to do what's right and protect everyone. They still have their differences, but they're starting to realize that they need one another to get to the bottom of the situation. Watching Superman hold his own against King Arthur of Atlantis was a treat although holding his own meant being able to take a few punches. I think the Subterranea plot helped to establish some heart and soul into the overall story, and I would like to see some more emotion and higher stakes that really challenge the world's finest Batman and Superman to their core.

    But this didn't have the energy of the Action arc. This story, as a whole, hasn't really grabbed me. In my mind, I am putting this chronologically after Action. Superman leaves Metropolis and heads to Gotham. But I don't know if that is true. Still, at least The Truth, as a whole, is moving forward. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Bill Heuer Sep 9, 2015

    Despite the weak character development, this was a fun story arc and this issue did a nice job at concluding the Subterranea storyline. The highlight for me was the epilogue scene between Bruce and Clark. This issue also set up the next arcs villain as Vandal Savage, which should be interesting, and I look forward to seeing his interaction with Batman and Superman. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Sep 10, 2015

    The common thread with all the Superman books involved in the "Truth" storyline right now seems to be that they feature great characetrization but are held back by lackluster villains or conflicts. That's certainly the case with Superman/Batman, which features a mess of a story involving Atlantean rebels and portable suns and some fairly inconsistent artwork divided among three pencillers.

    Batman/Superman #24 was quite honestly rather disappointing. Despite having some exciting moments, it felt rather out of place, with the rushed ending not helping matters. It does however tease an intriguing future for the series, and I can only hope that it doesn't disappoint. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Sep 9, 2015

    I guess this issue ends the Batman/Superman Truth arc, but you could have fooled me.  It didn't feel like an ending and I still am looking for the Truth.  We do get a convoluted story with multiple artists that equal some jarring transitions and an awesome cliffhanger reveal.  I haven't been impressed with the Truth story in general and this issue didn't change that.  In fact, I may be less impressed after reading this issue...and that's the Truth.

    SPOILERS Art: Wow, there are 3 artists on this issue. What’s happening?! The storyline continues with the Subterraneans trying to steal this Waynetech artificial sun thing. Both Batman Gordon and Superman are caught in the middle as Aquaman is revealed to be an ally of the Subterraneans. The story is ok, nothing great, but not bad either. I think it was nice to bring Arthur in. I liked that. One of my favorite scenes in the book was the one where it continues the theme of Clark being depowered and how that change creates conversations like this one Batman Gordon has with Clark regarding how he now fits into everything now when he no longer is this insanely powerful being. It’s almost as if he had taken being Superman for granted in the past. Doubts and questions arise in the wake of a man who used to know exactly what decisions to make based on who he was. And now, perhaps those decisions should be different, because he is different. He doesn’t know who he is anymore, and must rediscover who he is now. Near the end of the book, like the last 4+ pages, it was as if it were a different story. The art changed, and the story shifted gears. I suppose it was a sort of prologue. It was interesting to see Clark approach Bruce Wayne, who is now a “new” Bruce Wayne who has forgotten his life as Batman. Apparently he’s now meeting Clark for the first time, though Clark introduces himself as a reporter named Jon Clark. Does Bruce not even recognize him as Clark Kent, the man who was revealed to be Superman? Surely he isn’t out in the dark and the last to know right? So I’m not sure I believe Bruce didn’t realize who he was. MY REVIEW WAS TOO LONG. CONTINUE AT,
