    Superman/Batman #49 was a fantastic finale to what was an entertaining story arc. Green and Johnson have done a hell of a job on this title. Superman/Batman almost fell victim to The Revolution's dreaded axe before Green and Johnson arrived onto the scene. If you dig the big red S and the big bad bat then you will certainly get a kick out of Superman/Batman. Read Full Review

    This comic has a lot of action in it, and I was able to get into what was going on right away. This is a credit to both the writing and the art teams. The book's concluding scenes really tie everything together and speak volumes for the characters. I was able to pick this up, get right into it, and enjoy it without reading the rest of the series. I think that's as high of a selling point as anything. Read Full Review

    Rich and the podcast guys hit the nail on the head perfectly last week. With Trinity off to a successful start there's literally no reason for this book to exist. Were it not for some spiffy artwork, Superman/Batman would be a serious contender for DC's worst ongoing book. Read Full Review
