Batman & Superman: World's Finest Reviews

    Maybe more 3.5 stars, but for the most part this collection of stories is pretty good. In short, Batman and Superman meet every year on the anniversary of a mutual friend's death. The adventures run the gamut from lightweight (The Impossible Dream, featuring Bat-Mite and Mr. Mxyzptlk causing mischief, naturally) to the more serious (Light in the Darkness, with some disturbing implied violence by Joker) and my favorite, the heartfelt A Better World. While the finale story goes a little bit soap opera / deus ex machina with its plot resolution, it doesn't really wreck the book.

    Good not great.This graphic novels covers 10 years of Superman and Batman adventures, well one day every 10 years, on the death anniversary of a mutual friend. These 10 stories are a mixed bag but none of them are particularly amazing. The cool thing about the comic is that it attempts to stay true to the DC timeline and therefore includes various Superman hair styles and references to several DC milestones such as the death of Robin, the Death of Superman, and the back-breaking of Batman, and the birth of the Bat and Super families. Unfortunately, some of the stories are just awful, YEAR 7: A BETTER WORLD is painfully dull and overly sentimental and I'm sorry but YEAR 6: THE IMPOSSIBLE DREAM featuring the Bat-Mite and Mxyzptlk was embarrassingly bad. It isn't the characters that are to blame, Bat-Mite is the perfect opportunity for a funny, self-aware story but the writing was flat, almost like the author was forced to write it by midgets from the 5th dimension. The artwork is nothing special.Overall, this is a must-read for any Superman/Batman fan but not because of stellar writing or beautiful artwork, it really has neither. It is a must-read due to the amount of ground covered, 10 years! It is a light, fun, and entertaining read with two superheroes who are definitely the world's finest.

    this could have been great, but it was merely good ~ mostly because of what previous reviewers have said: inconsistency of quality in the writing and artwork and a somewhat convoluted long arc. love the format, love the premise, and there's much to love in some of the individual stories (even one featuring bat-mite and myxlptlk was actually kinda entertaining when it could have been purely awful). but the artwork suffers a lot throughout; sometimes the characters are just hideous, and much of it is a bit on the corny side. one story with the silly premise of superman spending a night in arkham actually turned out pretty good with the man of steel gaining a better appreciation for the horror of what it must be like dealing with the joker.seeing a decade of time pass between these two legends was actually really fun. the opportunity to revisit major storylines like death in the family and the death of superman from a unique perspective was intriguing and a lengthy episode about bats not coping with the whole robin thing could have been stupid, but was actually kind of nicely handled.wrapping up the story was kind of a mess, but i think everything about this had its heart in the right place.

    I do not know why people are finding this book mere mediocry, because I thought it was very nice. It gives a nice insight in the developing relationship between batman and superman (except some staring in the distance shot on the cover of part 10, nothing more I fear, guess you need fanfiction to read something like that ;).http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/s...By the time I got to the last issues I was laughing out loud because of excitement, which was slightly inconvenient because I was supposed to pay attention in college..But anyway, for either Superman or Batman fans a nice read. However I can not say how it fits with their other stories, since I did not yet read many of them (anyone any suggestions?) so I cannot say anything anout accuracy, but does that really matter anyway when the book was very nice?

    Man, I love Superman/Batman team ups.This collected mini series uses the idea of the two heroes getting together every year on the aniversary of a case they had together that went bad. Each story shows us a little bit of their history as well as spotlighting one facet of their relationship and what makes them the heroes they are.Some stories are stronger than others, but the good are right on the mark and the bad are still pretty entertaining.The stories where Superman goes to Arkham and Batman visits Smallville may be my favorites.Just a fun read with lots of reminders of why these two have been around for 70 years.

    This is currently my favorite Batman graphic novel. You get to see generations of both Batman & Superman as they mature and get to know each other. It's a great portrait of the complicated relationship between an invulnerable Boy Scout and a brooding vigilante.Update: Every year I drag this to Comic Con, just in case I get a chance to get it signed, and every eyar I re-read it in line. From the great parallelism beginning, to the far-reaching intertwining plot through Bats' & Supes' amazingly varied histories, this really is a great read.

    The only problem I had with this series was the inconsistancy of style and story line. I realize this is probably how most comics with various artists are, but I felt like some were great, others ho-hum, and a couple just plain wierd. Could we just pick the best artsist and let him make a cohesive whole? I also think I would've appreciated this more had I read all the Batman & Superman comics previously.

    This chronicles the growing friendship between Batman and Superman after an incident that makes them realise they have to work together. There's a lot of nice touches here, and the events look at most major plot points in the past 10 years too. You have Batman recovering from Todd's death, Superman looking for Batman after Bane, some really nice character moments. A great read.

    este libro funciona como "intercuela" entre distintas sagas de Batman y Superman y le pega un interesante repaso a sus respectivas carreras superheroicas en un lapso de diez años, que se suponía que era lo que llevaban más o menos en activo pre-reboot. Claro que con la continuidad nueva esta historia hay que guardársela bien adentro, pero si la ignoramos se deja leer cómodamente.

    Graphic Novel. Batman and Superman, fighting crime together. Batman all broody and sullen; Superman cheerful and bright and driving Batman totally nuts. I love it. I'd have to reread it to tell you what actually happened in the book, but the Batman/Superman interaction -- with, I'm remembering, cameos from Robin and Lois Lane! -- is enough to carry the story.

    Complete with Imp story!Another book showing the personality dichotomies between Sups and Bats.This may the first one that took this angle....so many new stories have ran this story into the ground.bat-mite and myxlptlk reminded me of why I liked comics...entertaining and fun

    If you never read any other comic book, pick this one. One of the finest comics I've ever read.
