KFuqua reviewed Marvel Two-In-One Annual #1 Jun 18, 2018
6.5

I have been a big fan of this title since it started, but the annual did nothing for me. I found it boring with not so great art.

I'm enjoying this story a lot. I would have given this one a 10, but I honestly don't love the Howard Porter art, he makes Wally look too bulky.

Dick Grayson has a lot of responsibility. Being the original partner to Batman, he's the natural choice to be Bruce Wayne's best man. So if anyone has to get to the wedding, it's going to be him. Too bad Hush has other plans-and maybe Bruce Wayne does, too!

"THE BEST MAN" part one! Batman and Catwoman decide it might be better to elope rather than go through some big, stodgy wedding ceremony, but no sooner do they put their marriage on the fast track than The Joker appears!

It's okay. I've never been the huge fan of Bendis that so many others have been, so I am still not convinced that he won't really hurt the Superman line of books. Lois and Jon should be a part of the Superman titles and I'm afraid he's going to do something to change that.

Man of Steel #2

By: Brian Michael Bendis, Evan Shaner
Released: Jun 6, 2018

With an arsonist loose in Metropolis, Superman's powers are almost useless in finding the culprit. And back at the Daily Planet, everyone wants to know what's going on with Lois Lane. How can Clark hold on to the secret of what happened to Lois and Jon much longer?

Definitely better than the Justice League books that have been out over the past several years, but I'm not a huge Snyder fan and I didn't enjoy Metal, so I don't think everything needs to tie into that series.

The art is good and I like that the League feels like a team and like friends. So not great, but it was good.
