Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Superman and Batman have a long history of working together, and this enjoyable volume collects some of their most notable team-ups. It opens with their very first pairing from 1952, in which the heroes accidentally learn each other's secret identities while on a cruise. Four of the duo's most memorable adventures from 1950s and 1960s issues of World's Finest Comicsfollow, full of unself-conscious fun, exemplified by the story of the Composite Superman, a villain who gains the powers of the entire Legion of Super-Heroes, dons a costume that is half Superman's and half Batman's (split vertically down the middle), and sets out to humiliate both heroes. After decades of camaraderie, the pair's 1986 first encounter in DC Comics' new, post-Crisis on Infinite Earthscontinuity finds them wary and untrusting of each other, but they bond again in a 1999 tale in which they share personal tragedies. The final story is a postmodern parody of the first, set in the Bermuda Triangle. Artists include Curt Swan, Neal Adams, and John Byrne, while Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale provide a short vignette on young Bruce Wayne's trip through Smallville when Clark Kent was a boy. Great for DC Comics fans; recommended for all collections.

Gr 6 Up
This is one of the publisher's many recent anthologies that attempts to bridge the time line from the cheerful Golden Age versions of their characters to their contemporary incarnations. The difficulty with this, as the introduction straightforwardly acknowledges, is that DC's superhero characters have all been reset and recontextualized for a contemporary audience. So while this book begins with the first official meeting of Batman and Superman, another story of their first encounter, this one post-reboot, appears halfway through the volume. This is a jarring shift in both established history and tone, as the previous half of the volume consists of tales of chummy collaboration between the two heroes. The post-reboot stories begin as solemn and pensive, but the volume closes with a welcome madcap adventure, a deliberately antic retelling of the story that opens the volume. The book is hard to classify in terms of its intended audience. On the one hand, it contains valuable historical comics that would otherwise be unavailable to today's readers, but on the other, the substance and tone of the earlier stories are so radically different from modern comics that they emphasize their datedness. However, the final story in the volume works so much better when one can also see its historical context. There's an interesting jumble of talent here, but perhaps the scope covered prevents these stories from feeling as great as the publisher claims they are.
