The Book: Jeph Loeb tells a great story of D.C. finest heroes, Superman and Batman! Superman is framed as a villian by President Lex Luthor. With a hefty bounty on his head, supers and villians alike are trying to bring him in! (Makes you think of last season's 24 on Fox). Batman stands beside him as they try to figure out why a future Superman has tried to kill them both to prevent a dark future! Jeph tells a great tale while showing us a unique look at there friendship, loyalty and what they really think of each other. Ed McGuinness artwork and style is just stunning to say the least. Great ink and color done very well - top notch! A Graphic novel worthy of anyone's collection even if you are not a fan of D.C.'s twin titans! The figures: Both figures are done in Ed McGuiness art style for the book. I must say I am impressed with these figures. They have the sculpted look and about 11 pts. articulation each. I like having the few articulation on these than I would say the Marvel Legends which boast an average of 22 points! Not to take away from those figures. But in my opinion it would take away the sculpted look with that much articulaton. Just enough to put them in a cool pose or leave them as is on the included bases. Overall great figures for your collection! Final: Great package! Of course this is not an original concept packaging action figure/s with a book(usually a comic), but it sure is one of the nicest one. And having the figures done in the style of the artist made it hard to resist. I'm sure this collector set will fetch a nice price on Ebay for those entrepreneur out there(but I won't part with mines - LOL). Get'em before they are gone!
