    If on the other hand the title of your book is "World's Finest Comics" it removes that sense of competition and comparison. It becomes a book starring Batman and Superman, not just another Batman led title thrown out to celebrate the mighty Bat...

The higher-ups at DC believe a bat on everything will make-up the difference; Superman is too expensive a proposition.

    When Jeph Loeb relaunched the title I enjoyed it for similar reasons I enjoyed 'World's Finest Comics' - the focus was on the plot, and with a dash of what made Superman and Batman such a strong partnership in the DC Universe. That book lost itself as it went on, and I have not enjoyed a Batman/Superman book since that book finished.


    Modern writers don't seem to be able to get to grips with these two characters when paired up, but Mark Waid inspires me to take a look as he has a good grasp on what makes partnerships work in comics. He also wrote a fine 'Brave and the Bold' series a few years ago demonstrating this! \(beer\)

I'm hopeful and equally precautious.
