Smallville Season 11 #16

The issue pits Superman, and Batman against each other and in the end, Superman discovers he’s Batman, and Batman confesses why he’s after Bruno (though we already knew that).

That’s really the plot for this thing. Bryan Miller wrote a decent enough issue. Oh and I was right.. It was a “red sun” emitting from his chest and fist. In terms of writing. There’s not much to go on. But its good for what it is. Which is a typical comic book first meeting between two heroes.

Hey folks… There’s another new artist… Who is much, much better than the last two guys… And it shows from the first page and with it we get a clearer version of Batman’s suit, as well better artwork in general.

There isn’t really much to comment on. Though I will say I felt that the fight was hard to follow in terms of where it was taking place at this “Stryker’s” penitentiary. But I’m just happy this artist is better. Has a bit of a better grasp of the look and feel to what Smallville was. Hopefully his stay is MUCH better than the last few. Oh and lastly. This just goes to prove that everyone should really be able to tell who exactly Batman is (identity wise). If they couldn’t already tell from the world Arkham City was in.

Enjoy your day!
