    We The Nerdy - Joel Raivid Aug 28, 2014

    I was also a big fan of the art in this issue. I know there were lots of complaints with the initial arc and though I was a fan, I think this issue was much better than the first few issues in this series. Gotham looked amazing in my opinion and I was particularly impressed with a lot of the action sequences. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Keith Dooley Aug 28, 2014

    Although their minds have been wiped clean, Batman and Superman remain their heroic selves. Judging by this issue, it's going to be an exciting journey to see them reclaim their minds and battle the evil that lies waiting in the (bat)wings. The portents of dastardly doings to come are enough to wrangle any reader into this well-written and gorgeously drawn and colored book. Catwoman and Lois Lane were welcome guests in this issue and were a natural addition to the proceedings. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Aug 29, 2014

    Batman/Superman finally start to show the gripping elements that I loved about the opening of the series, giving a unique new direction for it to go in. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Batman Superman #13 is an exciting issue. I do suggest buying this if you enjoyed the first four issues of Batman Superman, along with the crossover First Contact. With a dark force watching behind the scenes, you definitely anticipate what's to come in the next issue. Read Full Review

    IGN - Mike Logsdon Aug 28, 2014

    Pak manages to perfectly capture the boy scout charms of Superman and the devil-may-care attitude of Batman and it's almost a shame that these characters will have to go back to normal eventually. Jae Lee returns to illustrate and while so much of his style works so well with a lot of story here, there are times when his Gotham is just a bit too stylized for comfort and comes off as a Seussian nightmare.

    DC Comics News - Yonatan Ol Aug 28, 2014

    Despite the fact that this issue didn't do much to advance the plot of the series, and the few small art issues, I absolutely LOVED this comic book. A really good comic allows you to see yourself in the characters, and lets you live out fantasies through the characters on the page. This issue was a really fun tale of what it would look like to wake up one day as a superhero. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Sep 2, 2014

    But I wasn't as impressed with this issue as I usually am when both Pak and Lee are together. This is still a very good book. And I love Lois here. But I have come to expect even more. Maybe that is the best compliment I can give. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Kelly Thompson Aug 29, 2014

    Pak takes everything one might expect in a Batman/Superman book and subverts it just enough to make it more interesting than you'd expect. When those ideas are paired with such exceptional artwork it's easy to be smitten with "Batman/Superman" #13 and excited for this new arc. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Sep 1, 2014

    Batman/Superman #13 is a good issue hampered by bad art.  I'm intrigued with where the story of Superman and Batman dealing with memory loss goes, it's just a shame we have to wait two months to continue it. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jesse Kennedy Aug 28, 2014

    Batman/Supermanpicks up where it left off many months ago. For some, it may be a bit of a problem understanding all that's happened if previous issues aren't consulted. For others who loved the first arc, it will be a happy continuation in the study of what makes Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent "tick". I'm mostly on board with this issue and am nervously curious with what will come next month, quarter, or year" whenever #14 comes out. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Jason Inman Sep 1, 2014

    Batman/Superman #13 takes an old concept and breathes new life into it. Also, while showing us just how amazing some of these supporting characters truly can be. It's a simple issue, but definitely a fun one if you are a fan of these characters. Read Full Review
