One Good Thing And One Bad Thing About Superman/Batman #67

GOOD THING: As far as comics about monsters of one kind or another fighting each other go, this one isn't bad. If you're the sort of person who likes this sort of thing, a four way battle between Grant Morrison's Frankenstein, Man-Bat, Bizzaro Superman and a Black Lantern Solomon Grundy is hard to top.

BAD THING: For all of the fine monster-on-monster action, nothing of consequence really happens in this book. Everybody gets out relatively unscathed except for Grundy and we all know damn well that there's nothing to stop him from coming back from the dead. Again. It's kind of his thing.

The Final Verdict: Decent monster fight scenes, but that's all it has going for it. The art style just seems ugly to me and the story has sod all to do with the bigger plot of Blackest Night. And am I the only one irked that the story does nothing to explore the deeper ramifications of the Black Rings being back a character who is basically a zombie already?
