global Armageddon, Superman is on the run after Lex Luthor,
the new President of the USA and Superman's old nemesis, blames
the Man of Steel for luring a chunk of the planet Krypton
on a collision course with Earth. With a billion dollar reward
on his head, and death looming from above, Superman turns

Batman and Superman team up to do battle in order to save

numerous superheroes after the Man of Steel, he and Batman
must fight to stay free, and save Earth. Although, what should
they do? A future Superman has already travelled back in time
to try and prevent them from making matters worse, so it looks
like what ever they do will only mean the end of life on this
opening to this collection is interesting showing the origins
of both Superman and Batman - one born a hero when he was
lovingly saved from his crashed space space pod by the Kent's,
and the other becoming a vigilante after his parents were
destroyed by a mysterious gunman. I loved the way that the
panels for both of their origins mirrored each other, yet
showed very different circumstances. This is by no means original,
and has been used in many graphic novels, but it does work
extremely effectively here.
to this the fact that Titan have done a fantastic job on the
presentation - nice hardback cover with an interesting red
finish that looks almost metallic, followed by high grade
paper for the pages - and you know you are on to a winner.
only more graphic novels were given this treatment.
