    A tale of loyalty and unlikely friendship featuring two of the most recognizable and popular super-heroes on the planet, SUPERMAN/BATMAN: PUBLIC ENEMIES pairs the Man of Steel with the Dark Knight. The iconic super-heroes unite when longtime Superman enemy Lex Luthor, now president of the United States, accuses Superman of a horrible act against mankind, and assembles a top-secret team of powerhouse heroes to bring Superman in — dead or alive. But after the Dark Knight Detective proves Luthor's accusations to be baseless, the " World's Finest" duo prepares to topple the corrupt president's reign once and for all.

    Plus, a 2-page story by Loeb & Tim Sale as well as a cover and sketchbook section by McGuinness!

    Cape & Cowl - Not a Bad Loeb Tale! 0
