There are four stories in this graphic collection.

1) It was produced by DC, though Marvel had a lot of editorial imput, but the story uses DC personnel and feels more DC than Marvel. That is what is good about it, basically, though that claim goes against common wisdom. The story is marred by the Marvel bad habit of having two heroes fight as soon as they meet, but the story is generally alright and Ross Andru's depth perception art serves the story well. It is fun. 3 stars.

2) This is so bronze

Overall a fun volume. Like all collections not all the stories are on the same level. Some are better than others. Part of the fun comes from this being a case study of sorts that examines that change of style of popular comics that took place from 1970's into the 1980's. You will notice less text and larger pieces of art.

"Superman vs Spiderman" was the first story in the collection. I enjoyed the scenes made from the villains. The interaction between Superman and Spiderman felt special and cou

This contains the only DC-Marvel crossovers before DC's 'Crisis on Infinite Earths,' so it is the only one I am interested in. It has a crossover of Superman (and perhaps Wonder Woman) with Spiderman & Hulk, and The New Teen Titans with X-men. Some of the crossovers might be from the '70s (Bronze Age), within my favourite comic art period of the mid-50's (Silver Age beginning) to early 80s (Modern Age) before computer graphics was used in comics and the inking and hand colouring just kept ge ...more
Four stories, each of different quality. The first is a fun story in the Silver Age vein that makes almost no sense when you think about it. The second is more logical, but is horribly overwritten and not nearly enough fun. The third is certainly different, and I give points for throwing out the formula and trying something new, but I don't think it works very well. The last story is a perfect example of its time, with wonderful X-Men and Titans work. All the stories have beautiful art.

Spiderman and Superman (from 1976); Batman and the Incredible Hulk (from 1981) and Uncanny X-Men and the New teen titans (from 2001) as Marvel and DC have a set of crossovers. Fighting bad guys, dealing with real life stuff and occasionally trying to get the girl (though some of the female characters induce a lot of eye-rolling!)

Its fun stuff for what it is and what is best about these characters features a lot.

What fun! Clark Kent working for Jonah Jameson and not knuckling under to ol' JJJ's bullying. Lois Lane hitting on Peter Parker. Battle of the bizarre as Joker teams up with Shaper of Worlds. Kitty Pryde sitting in Metron's Moebius chair! Great collection from those halcyon days when the distance between Metropolis and the Avenger's Mansion was only a simple bus ride.

This had lots of good moments, but overall it isnt nearly as cool as you'd want it to be. The first Superman/Spider-man team-up was solid and so was Teen Titans & X-Men. Definitely flawed, but worth it just to see things like Superman fighting Hulk & Spider-man hitting on Wonder Woman.

It was always your dream as a kid for the Marvel and the DC superheroes to get together. Finally the dream came true in a series of comic stories. Excellent stories. Very recommended
At least one of the stars is for the sentimental value of this collection, so caveat lector.
