Big Noise falls squarely into the Not-Bad-Not-Good category, so I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who wasn't a huge fan of the Superman/Batman comics.
It's a decent story, but it's missing some of the charm of the earlier volumes. If the idea of a Superman/Batman team up sounds good to you, then check out Superman/Batman (Volume 1): Public Enemies.
I suppose I should start this review by pointing out that I am fairly unknowledgeable about Superman and his rogue's galleries. Mainly because I find them to be stupid. Most Superman/Batman stories deal with Supe's problems, because he is an incompetent ass that constantly needs Batman's help. Batman doesn't need help from anyone. Anyway, the writing on this story about a ship full of dead Kryptonians and an alien shapeshifter on earth lacks any semblance of sense. Batman's detective work in the...more

There's a kernel of a great idea in this ho-hum, painfully average, run-of-the-mill, dopey comic book story, but ugly artwork and "meh" plotting keeps things on a downward spiral. Worth a read if you can enjoy it for free, as I did from my local public library, otherwise - avoid.

The Superman/Batman run continues with to be run the gamut from great storytelling to very poor storytelling, with this being on the latter end of the scale.

The art is all this tale has to recommend it – yet another limp tale of some ancient vendetta that means nothing to no one. Superman is forced to make comments like “this really affects me”, so we know that the story really affects him. Another dreadful attempt at giving Superman some character work, and failing badly.

When will Hollywood wake up and realize that the next Super-hero movie to make is a team up story between Superman & Batman? Not necessarily this particular story, but there are plenty of others to choose from.

Okay, so this isn't the best Supes/Bats team-up story, but definitely entertaining enough. An ancient baddie from planet Krypton's past was hurled through time through to present day and is carrying out a one man, um alien, war against the last son of Krypton.

Casey makes good use of the SF elements of the DC universe, including killer Durlans and ancient Kryptonians, but beyond that this is a combat-heavy story that's fairly average.
I almost gave up on this story at the start. The story really felt disjointed, but as it all started coming together the story became more engaging. Not the best story that they have done, but certainly better than the last volume.
Kryptonian hating squidman travels from past to battle Superman.
Batman lends a hand.

A fairly standard story but good enough to be entertaining.

Learning Curve: Low - Good for new readers
Natasha Larry
An ancient alien rivalry comes to Metropolis and as usual, the world's greatest Detective is on to him. If you love superman and batman together, this is a pretty good read.
Artwork is good. Storytelling is not up to par. A feud from the past allows a Kryptonian enemy to come after Superman. And then Batman helps and they stop him. The end.
TJ Shelby
It sure seemed strikingly similar to a certain Star Trek movie reboot plot line from JJ Abrams...

That aside, it was still a quick, fun read.
John Yelverton
A last gasp of a truly wonderful book series that is sadly going out on a whimper.
Nice, but inconsistent artwork can't save this sloppy piece of writing.
The story was kind of weak. artwork was nice. Batman > superman
I loved this one I'm a big fan of Superman. And Batman combination
