From first page to last this issue is pure brilliance! In a run that has been superb, this tops the lot for me!

My favourite moments are “the Bat stands for a bat” the worlds unluckiest thief and THAT final panel! Bruce, Selina, Clark, and Lois are on a double date at a fairground that only lets you in if you are dressed as superheroes! Everyone swaps clothes to get in then spend their time at the fair doing normal everyday things, kind of. I love the character development here, the normally Stoic unmovable Batman who always seems to yield to the woman he loves even if it is grudgingly I love seeing the differences between Bruce and Clark. Clark is willing to go along with any plan straight away while Batman straight out “Nopes” it.
Losi and Selina get on really well (the hipflask probably helped as well) while the boys compete with each other like children. Supermans inability to comprehend how Batman could possibly think he could hit the ball if Superman pitched to him is hilarious and the genuine sweetness of feelings between the cat and the bad is just adorable.

Seriously I have loved this run from Tom King, the normalcy of the situation mixed with the fact that its Batman and Superman going through it just the perfect combination!!

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
