Although some panels are good, some characters lose a lot of what the make them cool or menacing, like Darkseid. The guy's supossed to be a huge God, but here he's just a short fat guy.
Anyway, the story is good. Begining with a mug and then going to higher planes.
Although this book (at the very end) seems to have a connection with Countdown, I honestly (so far) don't see the need for this title at all. I've read books like Teen Titans that are indeed connected to crossovers or other titles. These books (except for the first 3, I believe) doesn't connect at all with anything else with what's going on in the DC Universe, so... what's the need?.
Yes, some of them (like this book) are kind of ok, but nothing more. This is not a writing nor an art that'll change your way to see comics or something. The story is ok, but not magnificent.
Honestly, if you'r thinking in getting the Superman/Batman books I suggest for you to wait until DC collect all of this stories in a massive book or I'll get it from somewhere with %50 disccount out of the Amazon price. Or, get it digital.
Save your money. This is ok but not espectacular nor essential.
Make no mistake Bekka is a you know what. But a hot one at that. A-
Alan Burnett writes a mean Superman/Batman tale and understands the inverse relationship these characters have, which he sums up very well in the last few pages of the book. Readers will notice that this tale reads more like a Batman story than a team up, where finding a missing Superman is the object of the story. Although Superman's mind is shattered in this tale, it is Batman who we feel sorry for at the end of the book. His encounter with Becca, the wife of Orion, leaves him questioning his mission and the solitude he must endure to complete it, and his sacrifices to save his friend go unnoticed, even by the Man of Steel himself.
As for the art; Dustin Nguyen is a tremendouly talented artist who I must commend. I am glad DC realised this and gave him the job of drawing Batman in the pages of Detective Comics. His art is crisp and clean and Dustin is well on the road to the A-List. I just wish DC would put more artists of this caliber on the Batbooks.
If the last few volumes of this book left you cold, with the confusing, sometimes out of continuity storylines, then this volume will be a welcome relief. I look forward to reading more from this talented team.
