Even from prison, the Batman Who Laughs is staying two steps ahead of the Caped Crusader and the Man of Steel. His plan to infect heroes and turn them into the Dark Multiverse versions of themselves is starting to build steam, with Shazam and others already succumbing to his evil toxin. Batman and Superman are racing the clock to prevent the other three members of the Secret Six from being poisoned, but they realize they are too late when those three come looking for them instead-one of whom is a lot closer to Superman than expected and itching for a fight!

    Comics: The Gathering - Wes Greer Nov 20, 2019

    This is honestly the first issue in this series that I can't find anything to complain about. The story is action packed and fun. It gives us the answer we have wondered since issue 1 and does such a good job going into getting that answer. The story is met with brilliant art and colors that appeal to the eye and is completely satisfying to the reader. The creative team behind this issue deserve mad kudos and I hope to see more issues that are just as fun as this one! Batman Superman issue four is available today, so go pick up your copy at your local comic store or buy it digitally from your favorite online retailer. Feel free to let us know how you felt about this issue by leaving a comment down in the comment section on the bottom of the review. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Nov 20, 2019

    Wed come close to the point where a Superman/Batman team-up was unbeatable, but Williamson has found some very credible foes to keep them in line. This title isnt showing any signs of letting up as The Infected storyline rolls on. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Nov 20, 2019

    David Marquez does some brilliant work with the design of the characters and how tense and beautiful the action is. The characters are expressive and the art is full of energy. Read Full Review

    As the dark mirror to the current storyline in Justice League, Batman/Superman seems to get better every issue. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Nov 20, 2019

    Batman/Superman #4 shows off plenty of cool action, good character moments, and big reveals. The stakes are suitably raised and I am sincerely looking forward to what next issue will reveal. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Nov 21, 2019

    The tone of the book is great. I love what Williamson is doing here. It is a lot better than most of the Batman and Superman team-ups. The story is well done and I have no idea where the heck we are going from here. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Tyson Yurai Dec 5, 2019

    This issue of Batman/Superman was nothing but non-stop action and future set-up. I love that the new crop of villains are former heroes that have had their inhibitions removed and will likely remain that way for the foreseeable future. Joshua Williamson has scripted an awesome story, made real with David Marquezs dynamic art, Alejandro Sanchezs beautiful coloring and John J. Hills expert lettering. The Batman Who Laughs is genuinely a credible threat and things are looking dire for the DC Universe after this amazing issue. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Nov 20, 2019

    Batman/Superman continues to be a force and possibly the best fight-comic on the stands today. Read this expecting some interesting character wrinkles, all new stakes, and great fight sequences. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Nov 20, 2019

    The Secret Six have Batman and Superman on the ropes as we see the crazy plan the Batman Who Laughs is putting into play.  Joshua Williamson is cutting some corners here to get the ball really rolling and while they don't bring down the story, they could in the near future.  For now, though, the great art and over the top story has me more interested with each issue.

    You Don't Read Comics - Jason A. Fleece Nov 27, 2019

    If youre following the overarching meta-story of the DC Universe as its Year of the Villain crossover continues, Batman/Superman #4 is a must-read. If not, then the issue doesnt offer much more than a well-rendered slugfest. Read Full Review

    Am I being too pig-headed about this whole arc? The infected Kara and her brethren of the Secret Six unite to bring the satellite in. And then she is ready to fight. Read Full Review

    Batman/Superman has been an entertaining ride thus far, but #4 doesn't spend as much time focusing on the series' biggest strength. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Casper Rudolph Nov 20, 2019

    I don't like this comic. I think the dialogue is bad, and heroes fighting heroes is an overdone and redundant trope and I'm frankly tired of it. That said, the way Marquez draws Superman is awesome, and his fight scenes are pretty good as well. But all things considered, I recommend skipping this book. I think there are much better comics on stands right now. Batman/Superman #4 just ain't it. Read Full Review
