Batman Superman #2

Greg Pak is an excellent writer, and one of his best features is that even when you think you know where he's going, you don't know where he's going.

And that's a good thing! It keeps the reader on his or her toes.

This issue of Batman Superman seems to be playing a time-travel game, as we see Batman and Superman from early in their careers apparently traveling through time to meet what we might expect to be their modern-day counterparts.

But it ain't necessarily so. As we quickly learn, things are not what they seem, and there are more than a few surprises for our heroes.

Just seeing the contrast between the young and more modern heroes is fun, but the added twists and turns make it that much more entertaining.

The art by Jae Lee isn't a mainstream comics style, but it's a delight for fans of his unique, extraordinary artwork. I'm really enjoying his efforts here (especially since he drew the entire issue this time).

So we're still waiting to see where all this is going, and to see the mysteries resolved - but so far this new series is a heck of a lot of fun!

Grade: A-
