LOL! Nice

thats some really surreal style artwork...but does it have any place in the continuity of the new 52
Shaman - 11/2/2011, 5:51 AM
Yeah, the art is BOSS in this! And i can't help but love these warped Elseworlds stories, just like the Stray Bullets story where Superman actually starts off as being Batman before he finds himself :)

Its cool but they already did this same thing really well in Batman: Haunted Knight.
ClarkFarley2012 - 11/2/2011, 6:06 AM
The art is awesome. I'll be picking this up.

Nowadays, this is our idea of a Dickensian appearance by Superman:

Batman has gotta be so pissed. He hates being carried around by Superman, and now he's getting carried around AND preached too.
TheManWithBigEars - 11/2/2011, 6:19 AM
Art is beautiful, I'm curious if it's part of the new 52 though cos it sure as hell doesn't looking it
plasticman - 11/2/2011, 6:26 AM
This is one that I will surely be buying. The artwork is great, the story is timeless, and my kids will enjoy it!

Hooray for the real Superman costume!
Ichaos - 11/2/2011, 6:30 AM
Superman's face looks a bit goofy in those pages. Probably isn't the new 52 given Superman found his actual costume including trunks and isn't angry with red glowing eyes
QuietStorm - 11/2/2011, 6:37 AM
@MassExecutions That's the first thing I thought! Batman is gonna go and get his kryptonite armor and punch Kal-El in the face after this one. All I could do was here him bitchin out Superman lol

Superman in his iconic duds. Sight for sore eyes.

Pretty funny lol, cool art and that's the superman symbol I like, the S that looks like it's popping out. Also what's up with superman in red undies still? Didn't they stop that? Don't everyone know it's not in no more.

i think it looks corny to me, but opinions are like assholes

Love Bermejo's art and designs. I loved "Joker" and "Luthor" and was hoping he'd do something from the hero's perspective. But I wans't expecting this. i'd really like to see him do a Batman/Superman graphic novel.
MassExecutions - 11/2/2011, 7:17 AM
@QuietStorm - HA!

TheAmarilloBlack - 11/2/2011, 7:34 AM
Lee Bermejo is awesome.

Now, please someone try to say these costumes wouldn't work in reality. I dare you.

Take note, Snyder.
Shaman - 11/2/2011, 7:37 AM
As cool as the art is, is it just me or does Superman look like Fleischer there, on the right? LOL
Shaman - 11/2/2011, 7:38 AM
Woah, that's a huge FAIL on my part. Not on the "right" but on the LEFT. ...the other right.
valeriesghost - 11/2/2011, 7:39 AM
This looks great! I'm definitely picking this up to read to my boy over the holidays. The art is incredible
TheAmarilloBlack - 11/2/2011, 7:49 AM
@Shamam
I'll see you in Skyrim! HUZZAH!
Shaman - 11/2/2011, 7:57 AM
TheAmarilloBlack- Haha! Damn straight! Come rememberance day (11-11-11), i'll be spending my entire day off in Skyrim, and the whole weekend following it too ;))

HUZZAH!!!
rbfn04 - 11/2/2011, 8:15 AM
@monkeyballs that's cause GL is a "cop". The high collar invokes some kind of authority. That's why it works for Aquaman too.

Although SUperman is seen as an autorothy figure by other heroes (at least used to in the real DCU), he doesn't see himself, nor act really, as one...
hatrick3 - 11/2/2011, 8:24 AM
Great artwork. Bats really looks cool. Look forward to seeing how the cave looks when I get this.
rbfn04 - 11/2/2011, 9:02 AM
Ah, the iconicSUperman haters... See? it goes both ways ;)
SotNatt - 11/2/2011, 9:58 AM
The art leaves very very little to be desired. Costume designs have never bothered me before, and this is no different.

Honestly, I don't understand why people put much stock into it. Seriously, be upset about hunger, poverty, and inequality.

Shit like costume designs? Say "Well, that was dumb" and move on.
Slaggathor - 11/2/2011, 10:35 AM
@MrEko From what I heard, his having catwoman be the past, superman present and joker be future.

Still on the fence about this one. The artwork is amazing, but the plot I'm not entirely sure on...

@rbfn04

AMEN. so miss the classic

Thegoddamnbatman52 - 11/2/2011, 12:18 PM
yes i love that theyre combining two of my favorite things batman and the works of charles dickens, and making superman the ghost of christmas present is brilliant
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 11/2/2011, 2:23 PM
Anyone else getting "A Christmas Carol" vibe?

Freaking epic line.

Akercocke - 11/2/2011, 4:27 PM
