We’re going to play a little with the format here. Starting with…
TITLE: Future State: Batman/Superman #1
AUTHOR: Gene Luen Yang
ARTISTS: Ben Oliver, Arif Prianto (Colorist), Tom Napolitano (Letterer)
RELEASED: January 26, 2021
My memories of Gene Luen Yang’s Superman run are…unremarkable. By comparison, this issue is mildly better.
The most interesting aspect here is that it takes place early in Gotham’s police state future. So there’s an intrigue in the notion that this is Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne’s final case together. But I can’t say I was blown away.
There is, however, a nice little scene where Superman prevents a suicide. Kudos to Yang for playing up the hopeful side of Superman.
