    It is drawn by Derington which makes it all extra special. Derington does an astonishing job keeping the fight fresh and exciting. Read Full Review

    Overall, Batman/Superman #8 is a fantastic issue. It's short, sweet, and to the point. Williamson's script is fun creative, and lively. Derington's pencils are lively, fun, and fresh. Batman/Superman continues to be one of the best books in DC's roster. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Tyson Yurai Apr 6, 2020

    This issue was a lot of fun and continues the more anti-heroic turn of General Zod that Ive been appreciating over the last few years. Williamson is telling a great story with Batman and Superman combating their greatest threats and hes bringing over talents like Nick Derington to help tell those stories. This book was absolutely excellent from cover to cover with excellent writing, fantastic art, stellar coloring and lovely lettering. Read Full Review

    Still, I enjoyed the story. It was probably only a matter of time before Kandor came back. Just didn't think it would be so soon. And that batarang smack to the head is perfect! Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Carl Bryan Apr 1, 2020

    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

    On Comics Ground - Travis Tucker Apr 6, 2020

    I liked this issue, but I knew it in my bones from the last issue that this would be too big of a change to obtain permanence in the DC lore. That many Kryptonians would shake the status quo for certain. Alas, I had a lot of fun with idea of Zod just wanting to save his people and connect with his culture deeper than just his memories. That's what made this a good issue for me. Grounding such an angry godlike Zod takes some work. Here the work was quality. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Mar 30, 2020

    For a two-part detour, Williamson and Derington have delivered a fun, villain-centric story, and while our title characters might feel a little superfluous, there's enough solid beats here to stick the landing. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Mar 25, 2020

    Nick Derington's art is fine and tells the story well, but it lacks in flair and depth. Many of the panels look flat and rudimentary. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Mar 25, 2020

    Batman/Superman #8 was an okay ending to an okay arc.  It could have been bigger, but we got Kandor back in a way that could lead to an interesting story down the line, and everything else necessary reset to where it should be.   Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Casper Rudolph Mar 25, 2020

    The fact that I can honestly say that I enjoy this issue makes me happy, because I have been very critical of this series so far. Zod is easily the most interesting character here, followed by Batman. These two create the best moment in the comic, which contributes to Zod's progression in a meaningful and significant way. The people of Kandor are a bit silly, though, and Ra's al Ghul is criminally underused. But Nick Derington continues to deliver"that dude can draw! Read Full Review

    If you're looking for a solid Superman and Batman team-up story this will fit the bill, though it had the potential to be even better. Read Full Review
