    You really need to get this if you haven't already. The book comes highly recommended and it's one of my favorites out of the whole month. It's worth every penny. Read Full Review

    The big question surrounding this title has to be Was it worth the wait? Loeb and McGuinness answer that with a resounding Yes as Superman/Batman is off to a fast start even though it contains its share of problems. Jeph Loeb pretty much owes his comics career to the two title characters, and its clear with this first issue that he hasnt lost his feel for DCs two biggest icons. Fans of either Superman or Batman should enjoy this title as the characters serve as the perfect foil for one another. Read Full Review

    The book will get me coming back, because it's Superman/Batman, but if it were most other books, I think the average effort would show through. Mr. Loeb appears to be bringing out the darker aspects of these characters too much, while dragging out a less-than-stellar story, which doesn't translate to a very exciting book. Less drama, more adventure, please. Read Full Review
