Every new issue of this run so far quickly surpasses the last as my favourite issue. In this one, Batman and Superman try to explain the dynamics of their friendship to their respective partners.

I love this issue for so many different reasons it’s crazy but mainly I love it for the Banality of the conversation that takes place over the course of the comic. It’s basically two stubborn blokes trying to convince their partners that ‘blokes don’t talk about feelings ‘ but it just happens to be Batman and Superman and while having this epically normal conversation they are also saving the world!! The juxtaposition is epic.

Of course, Selina and Lois are the height of rationality which makes it even funnier as here we have a superhero who can fly and is basically bulletproof and the worlds greatest detective and they are utterly defenseless against the arguments thrown at them.

Both heroes obviously have major respect for one another and probably don’t want to seem weak in front of the other by calling and discussing feelings but it leads to an absolutely amazing comic! My favourite part? I think the culmination of the speeches extolling each other’s worth and then the two juggernauts finally crash into each other……….outside the elevator haha just brilliant

About Martin Cameron

A 34 year old manchild from Scotland, bravely fighting the on going war between a love of comics and space to keep them. Boxes are filling and thanks to the digital age we live in so is the harddrive! I love finding a new comic to obsess over and rediscovering old comics to immerse myself in from the very first issue. A healthy mix of the seven dwarves of geekdom all wrapped up in one kilted bundle of amusement
