Frank Quietly Cover to SUPERMAN/BATMAN #75

I love SUPERMAN /BATMAN.  It has always been one of my favorite books.  I love the dichotomy of the two characters within this book.  I love the yin and the yang.  Batman and Superman play off each so very well.  So different but yet so much mutual respect for one another.  The part I like most of all is that deep down underneath the tights and cowl, they're best friends.  So I am very excited to read SUPERMAN/BATMAN #75.

To celebrate this historic issue we have this beautiful cover by the great Frank Quietly and the the lead story is by Paul Levitz, who finally gets to team the Legion of Super-Heroes with Batman as well as Superman and Superboy, all lusciously illustrated by Jerry Ordway, no stranger to Strange Visitors. But this is just the beginning.

What follows is a special section featuring 2-page strips. My homage to WEDNESDAY COMICS.  It starts with Steve Seagle and Teddy Kristiansen doing the only sequel they ever will to IT’S A BIRD… with “It’s A Bat, ” a story of how an editor tries to get a special section like this going. It continues with Billy Tucci and Peter Tomasi with Gene Ha each playing up the grand adventures of our heroes, while Adam Hughes, David Finch, J.T. Krul, Francis Manapul, Duncan Rouleau, Jill Thompson, Michael Green with Mike Johnson and Rafael Albuquerque and Shane Davis all show us how the Superman and Batman families have been inspired by these two icons. From Supergirls to super-pets, and a wild take on a Lex Luthor and Joker teaming by Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo, it has it all, but don’t just listen to me. Go check it out!
