Batman/Superman #6 - Boss Fight


Throughout the cosmos, one name commands respect and fear above all others. That name is MONGUL, and the world-conquering despot has his eyes set on Earth! And unless Batman and Superman can take down the mad, monstrous might of Mongul, the whole world will suffer!

Rage of Mongul


Batman/Superman #6 came out last week and was a fun read. This is a fast-paced crazy action story by Greg Pak. And that sort of story works well with what artist Brett Booth brings to the table. It is also soaked with a gamer mentality which adds another wrinkle to this story.

I have been intrigued with Pak's approach so far to Superman. The first arc in Batman/Superman was like an art film. The ongoing run in Action Comics is like ... well... like a great action movie. This arc in Batman/Superman is like a cartoon. For that genre, it is a wild entertaining ride. Whether it is violence-spores, or nanobots controlling Batman, or a hive-mind of desensitized gamers working for Mongul, it is an insane mishmash of plot points to justify the brawling.

And yet amid the fantastic brawling, there are still a few character moments that make this meatier than a simple slugfest. In fact, the best moment might be from Jimmy Olsen and the beta-testing gamers.

Add to that the 'wide screen' horizontal layout and Booth adds some wild splash pages and narrow long panels which feed the story.
