Batman and Superman are on a quest to train the mysterious new hero Boy Thunder... but what's that in the dark? A faint noise...sounds like a laugh? Uh-oh. The Joker is here and he's got his own plans for a super-powered sidekick! Someone hide all the crowbars, quick!

    World's Finest does such an amazing job of reveling in DC's history while injecting new characters and elements that it all feels fresh. Cannot recommend this one enough. Read Full Review

    The cliffhanger definitely is a wild one suggesting things are about to get a lot harder for this collective of heroes and their new ally. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Nov 18, 2022

    It is all just perfect. From Boy Thunder's temper to Barry's Supergirl comment to Superman's speech, it all works. From Flash running with Superman to Donna's concerns to the Joker's mania, it all sings.  I'll end this review like I seem to end all the World's Finest reviews. Everyone should be reading this. Everyone. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Christopher Franey Nov 15, 2022

    The saga of Boy Thunder continues as we look deeply into his origin and more interactions with heroes that will either build him up or shut him down. The issue adds to the emotional roller coaster you'll be on right before the significant drop, which is the Joker. Read Full Review

    Batman/Superman: Worlds Finest #9 gives readers a classic #Batman and #Superman adventure as they continue to mentor Boy Thunder and is easily one of the best-looking books on shelves! Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Casper Rudolph Nov 15, 2022

    Once again Waid, Mora and Bonvillain put out a strong issue. The character work is pretty great, the artwork even greater, and the story as a whole is very well structured and paced. Stuff like all of Gotham being threatened for the umpteenth time doesn't bother me as much here as it does in other books, but I'm still not a huge fan, especially not when both Joker and Key aren't that interesting for me in this story. The good far outweighs the bad, though, and I recommend you get this book while it's hot! Read Full Review

    Batman/Superman: World's Finest #9 is the very definition of excess, and yet, it manages to barrel along at a frenetic, yet enjoyable, pace. Read Full Review
