Superman/Batman #63 Review

Written by Michael Green and Mike Johnson
Art by Rafael Albuquerque

+ Grodd - Thought I was going to hate the talking gorilla story, but turned out to be a 'simulation' being run by Batman in the present. Actually liked this destopian future story.
+ Done-in-one. Not many done-in-one stories anymore. Loved the ease of entry and no need to know about anything else. It's just a fun story with no hang ups.
+ Albuquerque's art. The new Batman costume he had for the simulation was fantastic. Absolutely loved it. While I've seen his Batman and Superman in Blue Beetle, it was nice to see him get a chance to draw them in action here.
+ Didn't really notice, but that cover actually shows the first page of the comic, as if Grodd literally tore the front cover off. Was surprised seeing it when I turned the page. Good stuff.
- Simulation might be a turn off/cop out plot element for some people. I liked it, but it's the only really bad thing I can think of for the issue.
- For the scope of this simulation, it could have been stretched to two issues, maybe fleshing out how Grodd won a bit more or building up to the conclusion better, which felt rushed at the end.

Verdict - Check It. Many will be turned off by the 'out of continuity' or 'unimportant' nature of the story, others will dislike the simulation copout to Grodd's ruling the world, but I quite enjoyed this type of story. It was a tad short, but definitely worth the ride. Haven't checked solicits, but I wouldn't mind seeing a few more Batman worst case scenario simulations over the next few issues.
