Includes the first Superman/Batman team up from Superman #76, then reprints the first 10 or so team ups from World's Finest. Robin also appears in these stories.

Written by science fiction writer Edmond Hamilton and noted Batman writer Bill Finger, our intrepid trio travel through time, outsmart each other, upstage Lois Lane, and find themselves in many "lucky" situations. Very fun stuff, and a lot better than most of the Superman comics of the same time period.

Art is by Dick Sprang and Curt Swan

Nostalgia: WORLD’S FINEST was one of my favorite comics as a child, especially the 80 PAGE GIANTs that reprinted some of the stories in this collection. Stories in editor Whitney Ellsworth’s comics are predictable: There are so many pages to fill. The villain and situation is introduced, then the villain commits a series of crimes, is confronted by the hero, and gets away until it is time for the story to end and the villain is finally captured. The only major exception to this are stories in ...more

Yes, four stars. I really enjoyed these issues. Batman and Superman learn each other's identities and become best friends and partners in crime-fighting. Plus, Superman, Batman and Robin as the Three Super-Musketeers! Supes in a Musketeer hat and tabard is just plain fun. Superman #76, July 1952, World's Finest Comics #71-85, July 1954-November 1956.
