    On a side note, be sure to stick around after the main feature for the preview of Knight and Squire #1. I was instantly stoked on what could best be described as Mystery Men meets League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Cool heroes so bad theyre good (the Milkman?) and kitschy villains galore. Check it!

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Sep 27, 2010

    I was impressed with Superman/Batman #76. Judd Winick delivered what may have been his best written comic ever. This is a quick one and done story that finally gives us the confrontation between Superman and Dick Grayson as the new Batman. It is something long overdue and proved to be very satisfying. If you are a Batman or Superman fan I recommend picking this up as it was a strong read that you will enjoy. And that is coming from someone who has not liked Winick work in recent years. So you know that is saying a lot. Read Full Review

    As this is basically a one-shot, you do not need to have read any previous issues in the series...and the specific story told in this issue ends in this issue (though the ongoing, overall story of the characters has continued in the various titles they all appear in). You also do not need to have read Final Crisis itself nor any of the tie-ins...the issue gives you everything you really need to know. For only $2.99, the issue is very worthwhile, whether you're a Superman fan, Batman fan, or a completist seeking all relevant stories to Final Crisis. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Sep 22, 2010

    Marco Rudy's pencils are also uneven, with impressive page construction but loose, lanky figures that lack power and presence. By no means should Superman look like Dick Grayson's teenage sidekick. This comic isn't without merit, but its time clearly came and went a long time ago. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Sep 24, 2010

    "Superman/Batman" #76 may have just a so-so and predictable story, but Rudy's art knocks it out of the park. I'm glad to see Rudy getting a higher-profile comic assignment, and hopefully he's got much more to come. He's too much of a talent to languish in books no one's reading. A mixture of Ed McGuinness and J.H. Williams III when it comes to his approach to pages, Marco Rudy is someone to watch. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Sep 30, 2010

    For an issue of this title it's one of the best, but that's not saying much. Aside from a panel here and there (such as Batman being brought back to the Batcave) I'm not that impressed with the art by Eddie Berganza who can't seem to draw Superman the same way in any two panels (there was even one panel I thought he was weaving Superboy into the story for a moment!), or draw him significantly different than anyone else with dark hair seen here. That said, it's a story that should be told as well as read. Worth a look. Read Full Review
