Looking for K
Superman / Batman #44: K: Chapter 1: Strange Favor
During a throw-down with Livewire and stray bits of Kryptonite, Supes is left seriously injured. After 3 days of healing himself, he has a strange request for Bats ... help get rid of all the Kryptonite on the planet.
Bats uses the JLA computer to come up with the model of Kryptonite caches all over the world, and they are both surprised at what looks like an inordinate amount, scattered on every continent. The task now seems almost insurmountable.
This is the first, in a 6 part story arc by Heroes' writer Michael Green. The dialogue is filled with humour and an ease that you only get when two people know and respect each other. The art by Shane Davis is just too BEAUTIFUL. And if all that isn't enough, there is a nice cameo by the Flash.
This 6-part saga promises to be action-packed, fun-filled with glorious art. Well worth the US$2.99.
