Well, Superman/Batman does not have 75 trombones, but it does have 75 issues and here is the big Anniversary issue extravaganza. Seems odd that DC does this for the 75th, but perhaps they are hedging their bets in case the title doesn’t make it to the century mark. I mean they didn’t pull out all these stops for the 50th issue, which was a straight story.

We have reached the final part of the three episode storyline of Blackest Night featuring Batman and Superman. My aim here is not to recap the issues but to continue the friendly competition between DC comic’s greatest heroes and how they respectively dealt with the Blackest Night scourge. I divided the competition into 4 parts; Cover Art, Reveals, Raw Emotional Impact, and Supporting Cast and Villains.

In round one of this competition I divided the battle into four parts. Cover Art, Reveals, Raw Emotional Impact and Supporting Cast and Villains….
