*Luthor and The Joker buying an orphanage in order to set all these kids to *and The Joker from buying an orphanage in order to set all these kids to life of crime controlled by them Thinking about it for a Golden Age comic book this is the perfect set up and again for a would ve been film it s a proper plot again for back in the day Nowadays we have all these interdimensional conflicts adult focused plots and high pical stakes so we re are spoiled as readers and certainly I am but at the same time something Tote Sprache: Cartoons auf Latein extravagant isn t necessarily what I had in mind onxpecting this story to be like but then Again Compared To For compared to for the animated film from 1997 did this very same thing in a far superior way without ALPHA MEN EROTICA BUNDLE (4 BOOKS COLLECTION) (4 BOOKS COLLECTION): Adult Taboo Romance Erotic Sex Story (Billionaire Dominant, Kinky Fetish and Disobedient Submissive Book 2) elevating the tone of the over the top comic bookxtravaganza of these characters and maintaining the tone already presented in both shows without attempting anything different and out of place Here the advantage is that this is a uniue three book mini series and Gibbons definitely never intended to connect this to something in particular already presented or introduced Speaking of the characters The Professional Victims Handbook everyone works inside the story but with thexception of Luthor who s this rare hybrid between modern day villain and this odd cartoonish foe that suffers from impulsivity definitely the weakest part since the better takes on Luthor are the ones presenting him as this serious megalomaniac with a sense of duty and power never hiding his cleverness and wit Joker is great as always and Gibbons clearly had a blast writing this character interacting in between these two worlds although I found it odd how Batman and him never really share an intense or Nightmares Angels exciting fighting moment at almost any point while Superman is there constantly suspecting against Luthor s intentions I should really say the third book is really where stuff blows out and the stakes inside the story reallyscalates and I do really wish that In the Blink of an Eye element could ve been constant in the first two since they feel as a buildup inside the introductions and character interactions Overall World s Finest Isn t Gibbons best work but he really tries to offer the best of two worlds modern day and old school comic book traits Rude s art is wonderful and a delight tonjoy and appreciate between Las alas de la mariposa each panel and while the story isn t as strong orffective as I wanted it still delivers an Whence the Black Irish of Jamaica? enjoyable and admirable take on the two of these legends There are better takes on both comic book and video format in which these two got to knowach other and fight together but for the retro value World s Finest isn t a bad title to acuire for comic book fans and collectors MEHHHHHToo old for my tastes and almost comically blandBatman saving kids in broad daylightyawnThat cheesy nding as well Sigh There are those that make an argument that the two biggest superhero characters in terms of popularity and influence are Superman and Batman It s a good argument Although Superman wasn t strictly the first comic strip hero characters like Lee Falk s The Phantom debuted before him he was the first bona fide super hero with powers to die for He couldn t really fly in his first outings but bounding buildings seems close nough so we ll leave it at that It s probably fair to say that almost Twice Retired every super hero that followed was to somextent based on the Superman template Ten Twentieth-Century Poets even if the goal was to make them less like Superman the criteria still had to be appliedBatman followed shortly after Where Superman serves as the template for a powered superhero Batman arguably serves as the template for a non powered hero Using his wits psychological tactics tools deductive skills and martial arts he has for than half a century been the real life super hero that millions of boys aspired to become The two characters have been traditionally paired in an attempt to capitalize on their individual popularity and to play Superman s light off Batman s dark yin and yang so to speak but is the final product better than the sum of the parts In this case I don t think so For one thing Superman is heavily under utilised here in order to let Batman at least feature This tells me the threat level generated here by the Lex Luthor Joker pairing is insufficient or at least not multifacetednough to justify featuring both heroes I can t help but feel that this would have made a nice Superman or Batman story The fact that Luthor and The Joker are at odds and not In the Days of the Comet Seventeen Short Stories (Works of H.G. Wells 10) exactly working together may have played a part Also The Joker is portrayed as truly clownish and awkward and not very menacingI like the DC Universe and I like both Superman and Batman As a result Injoyed this book It didn t blow my mind though and there aren t many surprises There are better SupermanBatman collaborations out there you may Period Power even want to check out the SupermanBatmanWonder Woman pairing in BatmanSupermanWonder Woman Trinity The art on the other hand is very nice and hearkens to the goldenra of comic books.

Fight *Luthor And The Joker
I d read this previously and am happy to *report that it holds up pretty well Gibbons script is a little off at times and the plot s *that it holds up pretty well Gibbons script is a little off at times and the plot s loose But Gibbons Biblical Standard for Evangelists excels in the small moments such as meetings between Perry White and Jim Gordon Jimmy Olsen and Barbara Gordon in wheelchair sans any references to Batgirl or not yetxisting Oracle or Lois Lane and Alfred Pennyworth The grudging admiration and professionalism displayed between Superman and Batman is Until Again excellently portrayed and Gibbons does a brilliant job givingach character memorable moments without Jesus Calling ever doing so at thexpense of the other hero The use of orphans as a plot lement is well played as wellThe
"Plot Is Extremely Comic Book "is xtremely comic book Rude really makes it shine His version of both characters remains iconic to me He does great work contrasting their styles in how he frames them his use of shadows and light and how ach hero moves The storytelling is sometimes slightly confused since the panels are so packed with details and the angles sometimes so xtreme it works for the panel but not always the page but Rude still manages at least a half dozen seuences forever burned into my brain notably the conversation between Bruce and Clark in front of the Midway orphanage with the train racing past Superman giving Batman a copy of Zorro for Christmas Superman lifting the wall of the orphanage in Gotham and later twirling the hammer used to knock down the supportA fun book to revisit I The Quiet Front enjoyed it So I reallynjoy stories that focus on characterization which we see here in the comparison and contrast of SupermanBatman and LuthorJoker Gotham and Metropolis mix and there s a lot of detail on how Beading on a Loom each hero traditionally works and what sets them apart Thending was Nights of the Round Table expected but I stillnjoyed it I m a sucker for a happy Introduction to Modern Information Retrieval endingI think this could have used somediting though there were points when the artwork was confusing and there were lots of side characters that I got mixed up There was a good amount of plot going on multiple narratives at once and I think it was a little cluttered to readI did When Miss Gangster Meets Her Match enjoy this though I wouldn t call it one of the greats if you re looking for a crossover that s what you re going to get In some ways I feel like Gibbons writer dropped the ball on this one The story has too many stops and starts with too much behind the scenes plot really hindering the surface level plot It seems an odd choice to have the book focus around two of the all time greatest villains Lex Luthor and the Joker BUT then have the real villain be a nasty behind the scenes guy who is fronted by a different villain who turns out to be not so bad Just that uick villain rundown is convolutedThe individual chapters originally published as separate comicsach have what amounts to wrap ups which makes it kind of clunky when you turn the page and the story continues and I really didn t feel like there was much in the way of characterization Mostly it seems like Gibbons was depending on artist Steve Rude to pick up the slack And to some degree Rude did just that Some really beautiful work is on these pages Some truly classic depictions of both Batman and Superman making them look heroic larger than life but still human And Rude is no slacker the panels are filled with Aliens Among Us extra bits human drama in the background fully realizednvironments Rude has a lot to be proud for on these pages and I want to give an additional shout out to my pal Karl Kesel who did a fabulous job on the inks So all in all Gibbons did a fairly good job but Rude did an outstanding job I know that Gibbons can be a better writer than this and I wish he would have shown that on this project When you have an artist like Rude when you know he s going to knock it out of the park it s worth the writer s time to build a better park The draw here is the art opposed to the story Gibbons s storytelling suffers from a lack of focus and direction There s almost no point other than having Superman and Batman switch cities while fighting Luther and Joker Steve Rude s art on the other hand is fantastic I love the classic look he brings to the book He makes Batman s original costume actually look good And I m always drawn to the look of Fleischer s Superman This book s plot is just okay But that s not the point This book is of an analysis on the similarities and differences between Batman and Superman and their respective arch rivals The cons I really wasn t invested in the main mystery specifically the subplot about Oliver Monks and Byron Wylie Those villains were very bland to me Also though I know this book is specifically a love letter to the golden age comics I did not like how campy the writing was This is of a personal preference I just happen to True Paradise enjoy my Batman to be a bit grittier and my Supes to be a bit of a wise old soul Again this is preferenceThe pros Despite my dislike for the old school writing Injoy the throwback. They are the World's Finest heroes Superman and Batman and they couldn't be different One is a bright shinning beacon of hope and protector to the citizens of the sparkling city of Metropolis The other hides in shadow.
