    This issue is so well-written and the artwork is so fantastic that its hard to believe that its actually Superman/Batman. Kelly hits the right notes with character tone; humor, especially at the end when Superman and Batman banter about the Justice League; action and drama. The dialogue is near perfect, the representations of every character are perfect, especially that of Robin. This is a fantastic story featuring the two characters well worth the cover price and very well worth your time. This one of my Picks of the Week. Read Full Review

    The real draw of this issue is simply Kelly's pitch-perfect portrayal of the World's Finest. Kelly is an excellent writer, and one that doesn't get nearly enough credit for his humorous yet complex portrayals of classic characters. Whereas most issues seem content to while away the page count with endless dual monologues, Kelly dispatches with this tired writing element after the first couple pages. His take on the heroes is much more subtle and endearing than I'm used to from this series. Is it too much to ask for Kelly and Kolins to take over the book permanently? Apparently so, but I'd really like to have something to look forward to between now and next year's annual. Read Full Review
