CBR Review: Superman/Batman #80

I recently reviewed Superman/Batman #80 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "If there’s an overused word in discussing comics right now, it’s ‘fun.’ Any light comic that doesn’t feature superheroes raping nuns while blinding old people and smothering babies is ‘fun.’ I’ve certainly been guilty of this practice, so why not be guilty another time? Superman/Batman #80 is a fun comic. I had fun reading it and it seems like Chris Roberson and Jesus Merino had fun making it. It’s a joyful, goofy issue that glories in the legacies of Superman and Batman, in that idea that good will always win, and that there will always be the World’s Finest to ensure that. But, you know, told in a fun way."
