Synopsis:

Things in the DC Universe have changed after Superman is tricked into destroying the one thing he loves the most. Now unwilling to let crime go unpunished, the heroes of our world must choose if they are with Superman or against him. But not every country will submit to his new world order and neither will Superman's greatest threat—Batman!

SO FULL OF WIN.

★ I feel like I’m a broken record to repeat this again, but well, that’s true, I’m not a comics person by any means. In the last months I started some amazing series thanks to my fantabulous friend Kat – b-but a story about several superheroes? Well, that’s not my thing. The fact is, in the superheroes arena, I always loved Batman and the darkness oozing from him (I grew up with Burton’s movies) and … That’s about all. Of course I can enjoy a superhero movie from time to time, but comics? Nope.

So, see these 5 stars? Yeah? They are the proof that I was wrong. Many superheroes blended together in a story can be a fucking great idea, if the twist followed is fascinating, that is … And it was definitely the case here.

The plot is fucking fantastic, and I was hooked from the moment I read the blurb. I mean, look at this!

“Now, the Last Son of Krypton is enforcing peace on Earth by any means necessary. Only one man stands between Superman and absolute power : Batman. The Dark Knight will use any method at his disposal to stop his former friend from reshaping the world in his shattered image…”

Doesn’t it look amazing? Because trust me, IT IS. Now, I always hated perfect bright Superman and I belong to the annoying group of persons who find ridiculous that nobody recognizes him (I mean, he doesn’t wear a mask for fuck sake!). Therefore you can imagine my reaction while reading the blurb : Superman on the dark side? I was ecstatic. To be frank, I thought 1)FUCK YEAH then 2)GO BATMAN GO.

It is dark. It is twisted. It is original. Just read it already!

What about the characters? Well, now, the characters ooze awesomeness by every pore. Indeed they are fleshed-out, complex, multi-layered, ambiguous on the morality front, strong (both men and WOMEN) and their dialogues are hilarious. Talk about a bunch of WIN.

The art is beautiful… And serves the dark side brilliantly.

Bravo. I laughed. I was breathless. I felt. Bravo.

PS : ↓ I ship them so hard. ↓

Again, thank you Kat ♥ You rock!
