Witness Batman and Superman’s first encounter! Gathered for the first time in this singular, expansive collection: the classic stories that cemented their legacy as the medium’s finest team-up.
They had been fighting crime separately for years, but it wasn’t until the historic SUPERMAN #76 in 1952 that Superman, the Man of Steel, finally teamed up with Batman himself. That story proved so popular that the two quickly became the main feature in WORLD’S FINEST COMICS—and the greatest friendship in comics was born. Their adventures together would feature heroes and villains such as Robin, Batwoman, Lex Luthor, Bat-Mite, Mr. Mxyzptlk, and more alien threats than might seem possible.
Collects the classic story of their first meeting from SUPERMAN #76 and their super team-ups from WORLD’S FINEST #71-116. Also includes a foreword from veteran comics writer Mark Waid and an afterword by comics historian Jim Amash.
