Joe Casey phones in a story of an ancient Durlan with a hard on for Kryptonians. He's thrust into the present and tries to kill Superman. Batman's contributions are to be rich enough to own a spaceship so he can pal around with Superman and saying "I have a hunch" 20 times instead of doing any real detective work. Plots don't get much more basic than this. The only redeeming quality is Adrian Syaf (It's a real shame Adrian got himself blackballed.) and Jason Fabok's artwork.

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.

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.

Ardian Syaf’s art is gr

Que vaya por delante que éste comic no es ni el corssover definitivo ni una lectura obligatoria para los fans de los personajes que salen en ella, se trata simplemente de una obra menor que lo único que parece buscar es entretener y hacerlo con una cierta calidad.

Así, se nos presenta un inicio muy chulo, que vincula al villano con el siempre recurrente Kryton y con el pasado de Superman (aunque sea muy pretérito), para luego poner a los dos personajes principales a investigar/enfrentarse a la am

Una historia atractiva y vibrante, pero poco interesante en lo que a guión se refiere. No da mucho de sí. Me ha gustado la lectura, pero no es gran cosa. El personaje de Grn-x me ha parecido ridículo.

Comienza interesante con un preludio tipo ciencia ficción espacial de los 80, pero se diluye en una historia simple.

Batman and Superman team up to end a centuries-old war in this tenth volume of the Superman/Batman series. The opening chapter showcases a final battle between a Kryptonian armada and their extraterrestrial foes. The launch of an untested weapon decimates both sides and jumps the last vessel into the future, where the World's Finest team investigate. As Clark Kent comes under attack by a hired gun, Bruce Wayne meets with a reclusive philanthropist. Facing a battle on two fronts, the heroes put t ...more

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

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.

Strange to say the least. Basically set as a Superman needing to involve Batman in a mystery involving a spaceship from Krypton as well as developments back in Metropolis.

This story is short and severely lacking in coherence that it makes you wonder what were the writers trying to do.

Forgettable. D

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.

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.

A last gasp of a truly wonderful book series that is sadly going out on a whimper.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Nice, but inconsistent artwork can't save this sloppy piece of writing.
