    Quote:
    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.


    Quote:
    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.


Agreed.



    Quote:
    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.
