Overview

A tale of loyalty and unlikely friendship featuring two of the most recognizable and popular super-heroes on the planet, SUPERMAN/BATMAN: PUBLIC ENEMIES pairs the Man of Steel with the Dark Knight. The iconic super-heroes unite when longtime Superman enemy Lex Luthor, now president of the United States, accuses Superman of a horrible act against mankind, and assembles a top-secret team of powerhouse heroes to bring Superman in — dead or alive. But after the Dark Knight Detective proves Luthor's accusations to be baseless, the "World's Finest" duo prepares to topple the corrupt president's reign once and for all.

This was the first graphic novel I have ever read. I absolutely loved the art work in this graphic novel! Overall, I'd probably give it 4.5 stars. Since I'm new to the comic scene, having so many characters in this novel was a bit confusing.

This first volume to the Superman/Batman saga was filled with action, humor, and drama on a large scale. The dialogue brought the story and heroes to life and the events tested the faith of our heroes to one another as they contiue to fight friend and foe. A must buy for comic book fans

Just looking at Ed McGuinness' art makes you think big time movie blockbuster. Here, he and Jeph Loeb give us just that. There are huge over the top characters, plots, twists, and speeches all leading to an amazingly fun story. The art is the star as McGuinness gets to draw a who's who of the DC Universe and they're all awesome. Some don't like his art but I think that there is certainly a place for it and it fits perfectly here. Only drawback was the vast amount of characters involved, they don't get set up very well, so if you aren't a huge DC fan you might be scratching your head as to who they are. Overall, this a huge scale fun book that everyone can get into!

A great graphic novel, exciting, thrilling and emotionally intense and then over the top into a cosmic conclusion in a grand comic book style. If you love the DC universe, you'll love this story. It selects from the universe wisely, nothing is forced. There's a Bruce Timm animated movie version coming out and only that master can do justice to Public Enemies, one of the best super hero graphic novels ever published! please visit: timothyherrick.blogspot.com/

This book was amazing! i loved it.i have read the return of supergirl as well and that is equally a great graphic novel. i can't wait for the third installment.

As with every comic book story, there's the inevitable law of plot holes. Furthermore, the story as a whole seemed rushed. But those aside, Loeb presents a great book that is definitely worth the price. The dichotomy between Batman and Superman is priceless. The book is rife with Silver Age references and characters. Hawkman and Captain Marvel show up, Luthor brings back the classic Perez Battlesuit, and the LexTowers are brought down once and for all (the tricky B13 technology notwithstanding). Highly recommended if you're the type of person who misses the old 'World's Finest' books from the Silver Age. This HC covers the end of Lex's presidency. For its beginnings, consult 'Superman: President Lex'.
