Superman/Batman #60, Who's Still Reading This?
Then #63 looks like it's back to "normal" but I don't think they're going to address the current events in both the Batman and Superman titles.
I liked some of the arcs in the book like getting rid of all kryptonite and getting each other's powers, but the fillers are really boring and dull to read. The book has pretty good high points, and pretty low downs as well. But really, with Batman gone, this book should end. That it's not ending only says to me that they don't plan on keeping Bruce out of the loop for long.
I kinda thought these had been out of continuity for a while. Even before Superman went off-world and things were going on with Batman and his whole Darkseid thing, it didn't really match up with normal continuity. It's just stories about Batman and Superman, continuity doesn't matter too much for enjoying the stories.
I haven't pick up this last issue yet, still it's one of my favorites comics, I love the Bat/Supes team-ups. It's a comic full of potential. But lately it is true they haven't been writing to its potential, specially Superman being reduce to micro size and the litlle Justice League, that one was somewhat lame.
Still I love it. I whouldn't mind to see Superman teaming up with you know who, because they seam to get along just fine as well....my bet is that Superman adventure will not long last and like he said it's something temporary, so I could see this Comic became sicronized with the DCU as well, maybe dedicating a small Issue just for Superman dealing with Batman RIP and then intruduce the new Batman/ old Supeman team-up.

I really don't think that the title has been "in continuity" with the rest of the DCU for a quite some time now. I honestly thought that Superman/Batman was going to be 24, maybe 36 issues tops. The first run with Loeb and McGuiness was awesome. And that first story arc is about to be the next DC animated film, "PUBLIC ENEMIES" coming out this Fall. I liked Supergirl's return as well. Then, once McGuiness jumped back onboard, they went into this crazy "Elseworld" that completely lost me. After that, when Carlos Pacheco started drawing it, I think I stopped around issue #22 or #23.
I am really into the art of Francis Manapul. Which is why I mainly got the issue. I was pleased with it, but wasn't surprised at the, "this isn't reality" setting of the story. But why tease who's behind all of this "Mash-Up" business? Really? It's not THAT hard to figure out. =)
I know it wasn't much of a tease. But since his full appearance was on the last page, I tend to not give that away or show it in the videos. It's pretty obvious what two villains it'd have to be. Kind of convenient that Batman and Superman ended up here.
I actually went and read this, it was delightful. I haven't read Superman/Batman since Loeb's run...I stopped reading after the Robin/Superboy issue dedicated to his son. It always seemed a bit confusing with where it stood in continuity for me, especially since alternate realities was a frequent thing with it from what I remember.
I haven't read the entire series but the issue I did read were good. I like the one with the characters from the 5th Dimension. I don't know if they have done this but a cool turn in the series might be if Superman and Batman disagree on something and end up on opposite sides. Not them actually fighting but deciding to go their seperate ways. Maybe Wonder Woman comes along and brings them back together. That might be an intersting story arc.
I stopped early in the series I think right after the supergirl arc. The artwork in the current issue might be enough for me to go out and get it... I wouldn't mind seeing Dick as the new batman in the series because I have no idea how superman reacted to Bruce's death in the normal universe.
