CBR Review: Batman/Doc Savage Special #1

I recently reviewed Batman/Doc Savage Special #1 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "There’s a novelty in seeing Batman make mistakes and fire guns, in watching him succumb to overconfidence, and using his Bruce Wayne persona to check up on Doc Savage’s abilities. However, that novelty isn’t enough to carry this story, of which there isn’t much. It’s standard crimefighter team-up fare: two men who are on the same side are put at odds somehow, fight, gain an appreciation for one another... while that appreciation doesn’t result in Doc Savage inviting Batman to his Fortress of Solitude, the story doesn’t deviate from that pattern much."
