Happy Batman Day!
To commemorate The Caped Crusader’s special day, this week the Superman Book Club is embarking on a special Saturday originating adventure that’s brimming with action, the world’s greatest detective, madmen and the ladies that work for them and other wonderfully fun stuff worthy of the World’s Finest label.
Our itinerary through Gotham City and Metropolis is as follows:
-World’s Finest (1990) #'s 1-3
-Superman (1986-2006) #168
-Detective Comics (1937-2011) #756
-Superman: The Animated Series, S2: E16-18 “World’s Finest” parts I-III
-The Batman, S5: E1 and 2: “The Batman/Superman Story” parts 1 and 2
- The World’s Finest mini was written by Dave “Watchmen” Gibbons and pencilled by Steve “Nexus” Rude, two of the comic world’s finest talents by any measure.
Between their considerable talents, and the considerable talents of our heroes within the story, what are your thoughts on this particular team-up tale of Batman and Superman?
“World’s Finest” and “The Batman/Superman Story” offer two different titanic TV team-up tales of our respective heroes. Which was your favorite?
What’s your favorite Superman and Batman team-up story? It can be from the comics, movies, TV, whatever. What matters is that it matters to you.
There we have it Men of Steel and Crusaders That Are Caped! A rousing three part adventure in the comics and on TV, followed up by a two-parter from the comics and TV as well. Read and watch and watch and read whilst celebrating the World’s Finest heroes.
SN: The current Batman/Superman ongoing series is worth a read. #1 came out last month, while #2 is on-deck for release next Wednesday, the 25th (exactly three months from Christmas, how 'bout that!). If you’re looking for the very latest adventures of the World’s Finest, you’ll find them in the pages of Batman/Superman.
Enjoy, and have a great Batman Day!
