    If more creative teams were as in synch as this group, DC would be in the midst of a new renaissance period. At least weve got Worlds Finest as an aspirational title to show how good a book can be with a respectful and reverent take on the characters and outstanding visuals throughout. Read Full Review

    Batman/Superman: World's Finest #5 ends one arc only to gleefully launch into another. Overall, it's a terrific culmination of fast-paced action, heart, and peak superheroics that harken back to a brighter era in comic books. It's arguably one of the most fun books on the shelves.

    The World's Finest vs. the Devil Nezha concludes, but this series does a fantastic job of getting you to want to stick around for the next arc and wanting to see what future fallout will be. Waid, Mora, and the rest of the creative crew have made an optimistic version of the DCU that is so encouraging! Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Casper Rudolph Jul 19, 2022

    This is the strongest issue in the run so far. It accomplishes what it sets out to do very well; it's entertaining from cover to cover; the heroes all have mutual respect and care about each other; and all the good guys are truly heroic. This issue put a smile on my face and I can't wait to reread this in the near future. If this series stays this good, this is a book that you're going to want to pay some attention to. Recommended!
