This story picks right up following the events of SUPERMAN #37, which released today in conjunction with this issue. SUPERMAN #37 is a fun time but it's primarily concerned with setting up the events of this crossover, and the events of this issue in particular.

 

This issue has a classic feel to it, one which is enhanced by the choice of artist which I'll detail below. As is the case with the last issue, there isn't much to really talk about save for a very big moment at the end of the story that should have big ramifications going forward. This issue builds on previous stories of this series which goes to show that this crossover so far seems to have one foot in the past with another in the future, so these two issues have barely given us much to work with.

 

Ryan Benjamin is an interesting choice. I don't know if he's done anything in the New 52, but he has done some pre-Flashpoint stories in the BATMAN and TEEN TITANS titles; thus his work comes with a certain credibility or legacy which makes sense since the Teen Titans, both past and present, will play a big part in this story. His art is fantastic, and I really felt like I was reading a pre-Flashpoint story.

 

Much like the previous instalment of this crossover, there isn't much to really delve into. The ending is interesting and the art is fantastic, and with two issues left in this very brief crossover, I hope some story elements will actually stick.

Our Score:

7/10
