    Nick Derrington steps in to handle the art for this arc. Derrington is one of the vintage style artists like Doc Shaner who brings a lively modern Silver Age take on the story. His panels are full of energy and his pages are captivating. Dave McCaigs colors beautifully convey that bright and bold old school feel. Read Full Review

    Zod wants Kandor to live. And he might just get his wish at the end of the issue. This is a fine story. I look forward to seeing how they resolve it all. This issue has good writing combined with some great art. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Travis Tucker Mar 9, 2020

    I liked this issue and where it went in its plot. That being said I found the ending to be a little buck wild and I'm sure if it's in a good way. I'll have to wait until the next issue to really know. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Bryant Lucas Mar 2, 2020

    In short, Batman/Superman #7 is a boat-load of fun. Williamson's script is fun and exciting. Derington's art is absolutely stunning. Essentially, this is an A-list team telling producing an A-list product. My only hesitation about this arc is that readers may find themselves minorly confused if they aren't familiar with Bendis' work on Superman. But, hey" that's comics. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Feb 26, 2020

    Superman and Batman feel almost like supporting characters here, the villains are such outsized characters. But that's not a complaint. And the ending lays bare the flaws with Zod's plan in a fantastic splash page that is alternately horrifying and the most Silver Age thing I've read in awhile. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Tyson Yurai Mar 4, 2020

    It makes sense why Ras al Ghul and General Zod have never crossed paths, but I never knew I needed a new rivalry quite like it. This issue was a lot of fun and with Nick Derington on the art, Im excited for what the next few issues will bring, especially when titans like Ras al Ghul and Zod clash. Joshua Williamson is continuing to give us a great friendship between Batman and Superman very reminiscent of that of their own Super Sons and that made this whole experience thoroughly enjoyable.

    And Derington's art is really gorgeous bringing a nice polish to the story. The panel of the dead Kandorians rising from the Pit in flight is chilling. So not a bad opening chapter. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Feb 26, 2020

    This is a good first issue in a new story arc for the series. It has done well to set up a clever conflict that makes for a fantastic cliffhanger. The art is excellent too and you have to love the extreme close-ups especially since you don't see them done this well every day. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Carl Bryan Feb 26, 2020

    Batman/Superman #7 " Just seeing two iconic villains come face to face with Superman and Batman really in the wings on this one, it just seems right. I don't like that we have to wait to see what implications this may have for The Batman Who Laughs. With a story line this important, it seems odd to take a bit of a time out. But time will tell how important this story contributes to the demise or rise of The Batman Who Laughs! Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Feb 26, 2020

    Nick Derington has some good art in this issue. His style can feel a little simplistic at times, but there are some great panels throughout with the final panels being some of the best in the issue. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Theodis Wright Feb 28, 2020

    If you, like me, were turned off by the Batman Who Laughs/Infected arc, you will find some relief in this new arc from Williamson and team. Zod breaking his truce and returning to Earth as well as Ra's presence is bound to bring some good action over the next few issues. One can only imagine the role the resurrected Kandorians will play. Knowing the characters Bruce and Clark are dealing with, I would expect a swerve at some point before this arc is over. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Feb 26, 2020

    When all is said and done Batman/Superman #7is a solid start to a story. A couple shaky narrative moments are counterbalanced by strong character portrayals. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Feb 26, 2020

    I am all for Williamson fixing the crap that Bendis did to Kandor, but I wish he allowed the moments to feel big before moving on to the next one.  It felt like everyone was in a race to get to the finish line first, and there's no winner when that happens.  I am looking forward to seeing where it all leads, but I hope we can catch our breath a little while we do.

    We can't say enough about Nick Derington and Dave McCaig's art, which at first doesn't seem like the best fit but with one splash page completely won me over, and the duo create some fun and lively action scenes together. Read Full Review

    The ideas in this book are okay, but the execution of those ideas has been weak since #1. Read Full Review
