DC Special Series #27 - 1981
The last of the "classic" DC treasuries. Weird team-up of Batman and the Hulk vs. The Joker and the...Shaper of Worlds??

By Len Wein and Jose Luis Garcia Lopez. this is actually a pretty good story, despite the incongruity of the main participants. I guess since Spidey and Hulk were on TV, they were Marvel's biggest stars, but wouldn't it have made more sense for Bats to team-up with Captain America? But I digress.

Like I said, Len Wein weaves these two characters stor

Another adventure from the tale end of the silver age of comics. A seemingly odd pairing of characters actually seems quite logical once you think about. Marvel's big green giant of Brawn up against DCs mightiest and brainiest of heroes. You can't match the Hulk punch for punch, you'd have to out think him and that's exactly what happens when the two Bruce's (Wayne and Banner) end up pitted against each other by The Joker and The Shaper of Worlds (Ok. I'll bite. Who?) more fun reading.

Superando las expectativas, el segundo crossover de ambas compañías resulta grato y efectivo al no sostener la historia únicamente en sus personajes, optando por involucrarlos en su trama y sin ofrecer concesiones mezquinas. Tanto el guión de Wein como el dibujo de García López cierran un episodio que encajaría sin problemas en una u otra continuidad, demostrando que el manoseado recurso del crossover puede dar para más que pin-ups y diálogos mal escritos.

Not as successful a team-up as the two Superman vs. Spider-Man stories, but still super fun. While the man character in the first two DC/Marvel team-ups were Supes and Spidey, the main character in this book is The if you're a fan of the Joker, you'll love this adventure that features the Hulk in a very clever way...but if you're a fan of the Hulk, you'll probably be disappointed that he gets overshadowed by the Joker.


Thumbs up for a fun Batman book.
Thumbs down for a fun Hulk book.

The Hulk calling Batman 'Pointy Ears' just killed me! I loved, loved this one! The story was great, both Hulk and Batman were super awesome, and the end with Banner walking away - ah, always the perfect end! My man Bruce Banner!

Oh, and I loved it when Batman said to the Joker:

'... and don't call me Bats.' These two together are always, always a delight! I hope they never make up!

Today, it seems like a load of old fanwank, with plenty of guest appearances and very little plot (not that my 9 year old self minded one bit). But it's the kind of comic-book-fantasy that simply doesn't happen anymore...especially in a world where DC and Marvel have threatened to disappear down their own mega-mini-series navels. This definitely deserves the term "classic".
An old fashioned bit of fun. A clever and believable story where Batman meets Banner. It does work surprisingly well, everybody is in character.
I might just have a new found love for graphic novels. Good plot, captivating story telling and the joker adds a little something extra. Loved it!
Back to childhood.. :).. A very nice entertainment for an hour.. Particularly if you are a Batman fan like me..
