[EPUB] SupermanBatman World's Finest Ñ Dave Gibbons – thereeldoctor.co.uk
Nightmares Angels dYs I feel like Gibbons writerropped the ball on this one The story has too many stops and starts with too much behind the scenes plot really hindering the surface level plot It seems an odd choice to have the book focus around two of the all time greatest villains Lex Luthor and the Joker BUT then have the real villain be a nasty behind the scenes guy who is fronted by a ifferent villain who turns out to be not so bad Just that uick villain rundown is convolutedThe individual chapters originally published as separate comics each have what amounts to wrap ups which makes it kind of clunky *when you turn the page and the story continues and I *you turn the page and the story continues and I idn t feel like there was much in the way of characterization Mostly it seems like This wasn t all that engaging The most interesting parts are the parts where Bruce and Clark interact and Las alas de la mariposa discuss the parallels between their origin stories The most moving part was the scene where Bruce and Clark both wake from nightmares about losing their parents The story felt a little toorawn out as though it could have been told efficiently with 50 less pages The coloring also made it Whence the Black Irish of Jamaica? difficult to follow at times I just think it needed somearker colors and contrast so everything looked less washed out Anywho it s not really a recommend to be honest There are those that make an argument that the two biggest superhero characters in terms of popularity and influence are Superman and Batman It s a good argument Although Superman wasn t strictly the first comic strip hero characters like Lee Falk s The Phantom Rich Men, Single Women debuted before him he was the first bona fide super hero with powers toie for He couldn t really fly in his first outings but bounding buildings seems close enough so we ll leave it at that It s probably fair to say that almost every super hero that followed was to some extent based on the Superman template even if the goal was to make them less like Superman the criteria still had to be appliedBatman followed shortly after Where Superman serves as the template for a powered superhero Batman arguably serves as the template for a non powered hero Using his wits psychological tactics tools Twice Retired deductive skills and martial arts he has for than half a century been the real life super hero that millions of boys aspired to become The two characters have been traditionally paired in an attempt to capitalize on their individual popularity and to play Superman s light off Batman sark yin and yang so to speak but is the final product better than the sum of the parts In this case I Ten Twentieth-Century Poets don t think so For one thing Superman is heavily under utilised here in order to let Batman at least feature This tells me the threat level generated here by the Lex Luthor Joker pairing is insufficient or at least not multifaceted enough to justify featuring both heroes I can t help but feel that this would have made a nice Superman or Batman story The fact that Luthor and The Joker are at odds and not exactly working together may have played a part Also The Joker is portrayed as truly clownish and awkward and not very menacingI like the DC Universe and I like both Superman and Batman As a result I enjoyed this book Itidn t blow my mind though and there aren t many surprises There are better SupermanBatman collaborations out there you
#May Even Want To #even want to out the SupermanBatmanWonder Woman pairing in BatmanSupermanWonder Woman Trinity The Art Woman Trinity The art the other hand is very nice and hearkens to the golden era of comic books The In the Days of the Comet Seventeen Short Stories (Works of H.G. Wells 10) draw here is the art opposed to the story Gibbons s storytelling suffers from a lack of focus andirection There s almost no point other than having Superman and Batman switch cities while fighting Luther and Joker Steve Rude s art on the other hand is fantastic I love the classic look he brings to the book He makes Batman s original costume actually look good And I m always rawn to the look of Fleischer s Superma. D another who witnessed the cold blooded murder of his partents Now they must come together to battle two of the most feared villains Lex Luthor and The JokerOriginally published in the mini series WORLD'S FINEST #1 ,
I read this previously and am happy to report that it holds up pretty well Gibbons script is a little off at times and the plot s Biblical Standard for Evangelists definitely loose But Gibbons excels in the small moments such as meetings between Perry White and Jim Gordon Jimmy Olsen and Barbara Gordon in wheelchair sans any references to Batgirl or not yet existing Oracle or Lois Lane and Alfred Pennyworth The grudging admiration and professionalismisplayed between Superman and Batman is excellently portrayed and Gibbons Until Again does a brilliant job giving each character memorable moments without everoing so at the expense of the other hero The use of orphans as a plot element is well played as wellThe plot is extremely comic book and Rude really makes it shine His version of both characters remains iconic to me He Jesus Calling does great work contrasting their styles in how he frames them his use of shadows and light and how each hero moves The storytelling is sometimes slightly confused since the panels are so packed withetails and the angles sometimes so extreme it works for the panel but not always the page but Rude still manages at least a half Ebeles Favourite dozen seuences forever burned into my brain notably the conversation between Bruce and Clark in front of the Midway orphanage with the train racing past Superman giving Batman a copy of Zorro for Christmas Superman lifting the wall of the orphanage in Gotham and later twirling the hammer used to knockown the supportA fun book to revisit I enjoyed it This book s plot is just okay But that s not the point This book is of an analysis on the similarities and ifferences between Batman and Superman and their respective arch rivals The cons I really wasn t invested in the main mystery specifically the subplot about Oliver Monks and Byron Wylie Those villains were very bland to me Also though I know this book is specifically a lo When I realized this was a modern kind of take on Batman and Superman first time team up I couldn t let this one pass From the mind of the great Dave Gibbons and the pencils of Steve Rude World s Finest attempts to be a blend between golden age storytelling vintage art and the maturity and wit from the take on comic books in the late 80s Lex Luthor and the Joker have join forces in order to obtain a series of Orphanage properties in
Both Gotham And Metropolis WhichGotham and Metropolis which make Batman and Superman to in both Gotham and Metropolis which will make Batman and Superman to the villains intentions against the orphan kids and the properties most likely intended for criminal purposes becoming the very first time these heroes showcase the very mythical partnership in the comic book world For starters I needed to read this and experience this modernized event considering how casual and abrupt the first encounter happens in the vintage comic books I guess a far epic tale of the encounter should be created eventually and reading Gibbon s introduction inside this collection is perfectly comprehensible why he was chosen Reading it I ve found an actual sense of fanatic insight between each panel and efinitely Rude s pencils are the perfect companion only followed by Oliff s colors which are a The Quiet Front downright perfect blend between old school and modernay comic book extravaganza which is where the isappointing aspect of these 3 books comes from they aren t as epic as I would ve expect them to be I mean we re talking Batman and Superman on their first crime fighting adventure after Crisis and while the story as a whole feel as a reinterpretation of the classic comic book pages as aforesaid the tone and ialogue in each panels feels completely updated as for those ays For a better comparison the comic book in general feels as an alternative take on the characters performed by Christopher Reeve and Michael Keaton so in a far romantic way World s Finest feels as the film that would ve been if these two movie worlds would ve been made back in the ay which for appreciation purposes it adds plenty of valu. They are the World's Finest heroes Superman and Batman and they couldn't be Introduction to Modern Information Retrieval different One is a bright shinning beacon of hope and protector to the citizens of the sparkling city of Metropolis The other hides in shadow. E to its reading which itid for me but as the modern take of the epic encounter between the two most popular figures in the comic book world it When Miss Gangster Meets Her Match didn to it for me not necessarily because its poorly written or raw which it s not but rather the stakes and way the story was handle Are we really setting these two guys to
Fight Luthor And The JokerLuthor and The Joker buying an orphanage in order to set all these kids to a life of crime controlled by them Thinking about it for a Golden Age comic book this is the perfect set up and again for a would ve been film it s a proper plot again for back in the ay Nowadays we have all these interdimensional conflicts adult focused plots and high epical stakes so we re are spoiled as readers and certainly I am but at the same time something extravagant isn t necessarily what I had in mind on expecting this story to be like but then again compared to for example the animated film from 1997 True Paradise did this very same thing in a far superior way without elevating the tone of the over the top comic book extravaganza of these characters and maintaining the tone already presented in both shows without attempting anythingifferent and out of place Here the advantage is that this is a uniue three book mini series and Gibbons efinitely never intended to connect this to something in particular already presented or introduced Speaking of the characters everyone works inside the story but with the exception of Luthor who s this rare hybrid between modern ay villain and this odd cartoonish foe that suffers from impulsivity Croatie : Cte Adriatique, Dalmatie definitely the weakest part since the better takes on Luthor are the ones presenting him as this serious megalomaniac with a sense ofuty and power never hiding his cleverness and wit Joker is great as always and Gibbons clearly had a blast writing this character interacting in between these two worlds although I found it odd how Batman and him never really share an intense or exciting fighting moment at almost any point while Superman is there constantly suspecting against Luthor s intentions I should really say the third book is really where stuff blows out and the stakes inside the story really escalates and I Jonathan Visits the White House do really wish that element could ve been constant in the first two since they feel as a buildup inside the introductions and character interactions Overall World s Finest Isn t Gibbons best work but he really tries to offer the best of two worlds modernay and old school comic book traits Rude s art is wonderful and a elight to enjoy and appreciate between each panel and while the story isn t as strong or effective as I wanted it still elivers an enjoyable and admirable take on the two of these legends There are better takes on both comic book and video format in which these two got to know each other and fight together but for the Retro Value World S Finest value World s Finest t a bad title to acuire for comic book fans and collectors So I really enjoy stories that focus on characterization which we see here in the comparison and contrast of SupermanBatman and LuthorJoker really enjoy stories that focus on characterization which we see here in the comparison and contrast of SupermanBatman and LuthorJoker and Metropolis mix and there s a lot of Από τη Μήδεια στη Σταχτοπούτα, Η ιστορία του φαλλού detail on how each hero traditionally works and what sets them apart The ending was expected but I still enjoyed it I m a sucker for a happy endingI think this could have used some editing though there were points when the artwork was confusing and there were lots of side characters that I got mixed up There was a good amount of plot going on multiple narratives at once and I think it was a little cluttered to readIid enjoy this though I wouldn t call it one of the greats if you re looking for a crossover that s what you re going to get It may mean another short power cut Very reminiscent of the BatmanSuperman Movie from the early 2000s back when I was in high school MEHHHHHToo old for my tastes and almost comically blandBatman saving kids in broad This Poison Will Remain daylightyawnThat cheesy ending as well Sigh In some wa.
