    Iíd be curious to re-read the first issue with the first appearance of the rolling film format with Supes on the top half of each page and Batman on the bottom half. I also recall some interview early on where they said that you can read it like a traditional comic or top half (Supes) then bottom half (Bats). Another perspective on the story courtesy of the unique format.

    Weird to end it with Batman going "no, alternate universe Martha Wayne is not my mother, I don't need to go looking for the people I love in other universes, my parents are always with me", while Superman is all "of course I want to make out with alternate universe Lois Lane".

    Both fun stories, and a worthy epilogue to this storyline. I enjoyed the stories of both parts about the same, but definitely prefer the art of the Superman one.

    Really dug the Superman/Spider Lady stuff. And the alternate Bat/Supes signal was pretty great. Awesome art.

    Got a good laugh out of Batman riding (and complaining about) the Batcycle sidecar. And yet more gold from Jimmy and Robin. Only one panel but it perfectly captured their dynamic from previous meetings.

    Man, I really enjoyed Yang's take. Guy can really weave a great story, in both narration and dialogue. Def will be a well remembered run.

    I have been enjoying the Batman / Superman book , it's really different , it seems like it has a Silver Age feel but modern.
    Read the Annual and it was fun . It's kind of a shame that DC is ending it , as Yang is a good writer and has experience writing Superman.
    I guess that it's not a money maker for DC. Nowadays we don't know DC's sales numbers as we did when they were with Diamond.

    Saleswise I think it’s still doing fine, Yang put out a tweet that said he had to leave the book in order to do another project, and I guess DC decided to cancel rather than get a new writer.

    Seems reasonable enough

    Forcing any writer to live up to archive of worlds was a tall order

    One last issue from Yang, glad he gets to play with one of Supes’ classic Rogues before moving onto whatever comes next. Always bums me out that he had ideas for what to do with all these classic Rogues that we never got to see because of editorial. I know he explicitly wanted to do something with Brainiac.

    I wonder if Bat-Mite will show up.

    So, I'm interested in getting this in trade - is it the sort of thing a reader can jump into without having to be up on recent comic events? Is it self-contained enough to be good all by itself? Because it's looked interesting with the whole old timey movie serial-inspired multiverse takes on the heroic duo.

    Yeah you can pick it up and read it without having read any of Williamson’s run or Death Metal imo.

    I can confirm that. I haven't read anything from Doom Death Metal story arc from Snyder or Williamson and had zero problems understanding what is going on.

    Supes and BAts having to deal with Mr. Mxyzptlk having an existential crisis and a Calender Man that is clearly out of his depth. I love it already.

    Fun ending to a fun run. At the end we get a reminder that Batman/Superman Authority Special is coming, but no hints for any future story lines like we got with Darkseid and films.

    Great final issue, Yang playing around with the comic book format one last time! He writes a good Mxy, bummer he didn’t get the chance to do more with the traditional Superman Rogues.
