   Anderson has an excellent talent for making comic characters come to life with mere words as to give the reader the feeling you are watching a movie or at best looking at the rich artwork of a comic. This story covers the beginnings of both Superman and Batman who meet for the first time. The tale set in the fifties has a Superman character closer to the Superman Returns personality and Batman with a personality like he was portrayed in Batman Begins (the Dark Knight version).    …

When it works, it works quite well.      "Enemies and Allies" is an example of that. The book is set shortly after the launch of Sputnik, and centers around a nefarious plan by Lex Luthor (shock and surprise), who is …
