Everything has gone super-batty. Superman and Batman travel to an alternate Earth to kill the man responsible for the death of Lois Lane. And now the mightiest heroes from a world of super-soldiers, hulking monsters and Norse gods have crossed dimensional barriers seeking to avenge their fallen comrade. It's a tale of non-stop action with guest stars from infinite earths, featuring a Bizarro-Superman, a Batzarro, four Supergirls and more Supermen and Batmen than have ever been contained in one book...

Vengeance is a bit of a twisted release. For those of you who think you've seen it all, then this will have you sitting up and taking notice. But, a word of warning, this is not a lightweight read - you'll really need to be concentrating to keep up to speed with what is going on. As different superheroes from alternate universes appear on the scene it's not long before you start to wonder just who are the bad guys and who are the heroes.

Can Superman and Batman take on a squad of heroes seeking revenge for the murder of one of their teammates? How do Darkseid, Lex Luthor, Superwoman and Batwoman fit into the mind-boggling mystery? The superhero universe's two greatest icons go through the wringer for an explosive, interdimensional finale that ties up story strands that were first opened in Public Enemies.

As we've come to expect with these releases, the reproduction is first rate and the presentation is faultless. If you are fan of Superman, Batman or Bizarro then you'll love this collection.
