    In Superman/Batman there are equal parts dark and light, as youd expect from both of the lead characters. However, Jeph Loeb puts a great deal of emphasis into the interpersonal relationship between Superman and Batman, which elevates this story above the standard action-adventure mini-series. The dialog and thought captions express the human side of each and explains their friendship in a believable manner. Its the kind of careful character interaction that is altogether absent from Loebs regular Batman monthly. This is a really solid and effective book that I hope lasts beyond the current story arc.

    Hopefully my little stream of consciousness in the middle of an otherwise conventional review will mimic the effect the middle pages of this issue had on me. Terribly off-putting and poorly written, Superman/Batman is the disappointment of the year. Read Full Review

    You could have twenty-two blank, white pages licked by Jeph Loeb and this would still sell, but it'd be nice if his writing were more desirable than moist parchment. Read Full Review
