This is not one of Jeph Loeb's best works. It is pretty to look at (It's Michael Turner, people) and there are some great moments in the story but other than that it is pretty generic. I have read all of Loeb's works for both Marvel and DC and feel that he is a writer of great caliber. Here, however he writes a lot of events and characters that are just there for shock value. For example, Kara is out in the town with Superman and Batman and all of a sudden Wonder Woman shows up and attempts to kidnap her...my question is why? These three are JLA members and good friends. There is no reason for Wonder Woman to try and Kidnap Kara other than the fact that in the final page, you see Batman and Superman gasping saying " gasp...It's You!!!" Also, Darkseid is disposed of in a very generic and in a less than glamorous manner. However, there are good moments in the story, i.e. Batman taking on Darkseid...that's right Batman vs. Darkseid. But overall it's a pretty generic story.
Overall, it's not a great story but it's an okay story...Read more ›
While Hush is certainly enough to make a Batman fan out of the uninitiated, I was really introduced to the character of Superman through Superman/Batman and Superman: Godfall (also highly recommended). Like the previous issues of Superman/Batman, this series picks up with a story being told from the duel perspective of the dark knight and the man of steel. This time of course the story involves one Kara Zor-El, Superman's Kryptonian cousin. You could say that this whole storyline is really an answer to all the people who said "How come we aren't getting any cool comics about the REAL Supergirl?!". As a serious fan of all female superheroes, I can't help but think that this is a very good thing.
The first chapter of the story details Batman's investigation of meteorite that has fallen to earth (as shown in the first Superman/Batman collection). He goes underwater to check it out while Superman complains about how he can't go outside because of all the anti-Superman propoganda being pushed by the President (Lex Luthor).Read more ›
This is one of Jeph Loeb's best written books as far as I'm concerned. I know The Long Halloween or some other Batman title would probably be the majority of people's favorite work of his, but I think he just nails this story. The best things about the writing is the thought bubbles of Both Batman and Superman. The way that each character knows the other and their thoughts of the situation and the other people involved in the story are superbly written. This just shows how well Loeb knows these characters. I don't know if any other comic writer out there could have gotten the story exactly this perfect. The writing gets 5 stars as well.
This is one of the best graphics that I've ever read and would rank it right up near the top with The Dark Knight Returns, Watchmen, The Crow and a few others. If you haven't read this and are even remotely interested in Batman, Superman, and/or Supergirl, then you need to get your hands on a copy of this.

I really enjoyed this one, and if you've only seen the movie version you'll notice that there are a few extra scenes included in the comic version.Published on February 9, 2014 by Shaish
