Review: Like Silver Age Comics? You’ll Love Batman/Superman – World’s Finest #1

To a contemporary audience, the Silver Age of comics can come off as a bit campy. There’s a reason for that; Once you’ve seen Batman track down a modern-day Zodiac killer, it can be difficult to make sense out of the time that he’s turned into a radioactive zebra. And yet, the Silver Age was a time of unrestrained ideas. To move away from it entirely is to lose a sense of wonder. What comics need more of is a story that walks the line, that balances the fun and imagination of Silver Age comics with the modern appreciation for grounded storytelling.
