The secret behind the Supergirl-Robin feud, revealed! On a day not too long ago, a meeting between the Boy Wonder and the Girl of Steel began sweetly, became awkward, and ended so catastrophically, horrifically, jaw-droppingly, car-crashingly disastrously that, among the Superman and Batman families, it is now enshrined as the world’s finest example of How Not to Team Up!

    Waid is joined by artist Emanuela Lupacchino for this latest issue, which departs from the "Boy Thunder" arc and gives us a hilarious outing that is definitely one of the best issues to date. Considering the heights that the series has hit over its run, that's really saying something and World's Finest remains a must read. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Feb 22, 2023

    Supergirl and Robin might make a really good team for Worlds Finest. Batman and Superman have had it together for so long that its nice to see a relatively untested pair in the center of the panel. An awkward date between superheroes is a nice outlet for that. As obvious a comic premise as it is, its not one that makes it between the covers all that often. Waid and Lupacchino have nailed a perfect little sitcom in a very fun one-shot story.  Read Full Review

    I had a blast reading Batman/Superman: Worlds Finest #12. Though it isnt essential to the main story of the series, I would say it is a must-read for readers. It is packed with gorgeous art and plenty of action and laughs. Batman/Superman: Worlds Finest #12 is easily one of my favorite issues of the series so far. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Feb 21, 2023

    Batman / Superman: World's Finest #12 breaks from world-ending events and lethal villains for a lighthearted and thoroughly amusing comedy of errors. Waid's gift for awkward comedy is on full display, and the guest art team's execution reasonably matches Dan Mora's immaculate style. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Feb 21, 2023

    This title has been useful for setting up the new DCU continuity, which puts Supergirl back in her original place as the first Super-sidekick and makes her a bit of a peer to Dick Grayson. As the same generation, they also have a meet cute and briefly consider datingonly for it to go horribly wrong. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Scott Waldyn Feb 23, 2023

    Batman/Superman: World's Finest #12 is a fun one-shot where Robin and Supergirl attempt (and fail) to go on a date. It's colorful, silly, and enjoyable. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Casper Rudolph Feb 21, 2023

    In a world where mainstream Batman is always sad and the Big Two can't stop turning a blind eye to customers' event fatigue, this issue is a breath of fresh air. It's awkward and funny and well-drawn, and anyone can pick up this issue without having had to read previous comics in order to enjoy it. I recommend this comic to everyone who's looking for some awkward comedy in their monthly rotation, or people who are big fans of either Supergirl or Robin. Enjoy! Read Full Review
