Great little read with some fantastic art, my only gripe is the first couple of parts of the story are reprinted sideways for effect but are a pain to read because it is so tight on the pages with the Hard Cover of the book.

HASH(0x8a69eb70) out of 5 stars Batman and Superman meet Huntress and Power Girl (Their Daughters) 18 Nov. 2014
By Scott Knight - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Batman/Superman Vol. 2: Game Over is the latest collection of the two heroes' team-ups. Principal writing for the majority of the stories in the collection is by Greg Pak, and the gorgeous artwork is done by Jae Lee, with a couple of other artists on the other issues.

There are three stories in Game Over. The first deals with Toymaster's attempt at a virtual reality game where the players attempt to kill Batman. When Mongul reveals himself, things quickly spin out of control. The second story deals with the fallout of the battle with Mongul, as his son, Jochi, challenges Batman, Superman, and several of their associates to battle for the control of WarWorld. This arc guest stars Supergirl, Steel, Red Hood, Batgirl, and Krypto. The final story is a crossover with World's Finest, and brings Huntress and Power Girl in to contact with Batman and Superman. This is an interesting moment, as both heroines are the daughters of these two heroes in an alternate universe. As Power Girl's powers go out of control, it seems the only solution is opening a doorway back to Earth 2, the alternate universe that is home to Huntress and Power Girl. This arc ties in loosely to the events going on in the Earth 2 comic.

Overall, Game Over was an entertaining book. It's always intriguing to see the contrast between Batman and Superman played out in such close quarters. Additionally, the appearance of fellow heroes and heroines makes for the opportunity to tell interesting and new stories.

I would recommend Batman/Superman Vol. 2: Game Over to fans of either or both of these heroes. It is a worthy follow-up to the first volume.

I received a preview copy of this book from DC and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

HASH(0x8a69ebc4) out of 5 stars 2 stories for the price of 1, and both worth reading 19 Nov. 2014
By Travis Starnes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Why is it we always talk about 6 issue arcs? What is it about that amount of comics that makes for a good story? Well clearly there is nothing intrinsic about 6 issues defining a complete arc, especially when a single issue can be anything from 18 to 30 pages long with annuals potentially being even longer. Four issues of one series can be longer than 5 or even six from a different company, but the one thing that all 6 issue stories have in common is a rhythm to them. Collected trades are not simply one long book cut into sections, they are a certain number of ‘chapters’ each of which flows as its own story, building into a bigger one.

The first arc is about a computer game designer, The Toymaster, who has designed a very realistic fighting game where superheroes battle each other. The problem is it is possibly more realistic than he could have ever imagined thanks to his new programmer ‘Agnes.’ This part of the book is more of a three issue arc with the fourth being the annual and only loosely connected to the previous part.

The second arc is a crossover with the ‘Worlds Finest,’ a team of Power Girl and The Huntress, Supergirl and Batman’s daughter from the future of an alternate world. This arc strangely feels the opposite of rushed, it just has no middle as the book jumps from introductions and set up straight into the end game with the second issue.

What also lends to this books ‘fractured’ nature is the artistic choices within it. We start with the ‘gamer’ story and all three issues are completely landscape double page spreads. Actually that is misleading, I think in the original issues the comic was turned sideways, but it is very hard to tell that from a digital format. This works really well digitally, I’m not sure how people will get on with holding a hardback 200+ page book on its end, or if they will print them side on, I never get to see the final version merely a prerelease rough digital review copy. The art in this section is fantastic and it does it’s very best to make it feel like a video game complete with health bars. Where it all falls apart is the introduction of Jae Lee in the annual which continues on as half of the second arc. Please do not misunderstand this style is stunning and reminiscent of Ribic’s art on Thor. I have nothing but praise for it, with one exception, but it is utterly jarring when placed next to the more tradition ‘comic ‘ style in the rest of the book. Superman gets a ‘suit’ part way through the second arc and the two artists interpretations are so different I thought he had taken it off when the artist changed. As for my one exception, it is Superman’s face, he could not look more androgynous if they had tried, at times it’s almost feminine, which is bizarre when placed alongside his usual chiseled jaw line.

None of this prevented me from enjoying this immensely. Watching Superman poke fun at Batman for ‘taking on one of His villains’ was hilarious given how stuck up and stuffy the bat is. Seeing Power Girl punch Superman through a hill top was only topped by the Man of Steel dropping another on one her head. The book is filled with little character moments and the most believable reasons for villains going good and heroes fighting each other. But I have to say even with all these positives, Power Girl’s ‘boob window’ is still the most gratuitously sexist thing in modern comics.

This is a really good collected volume, especially if you think of it as two trades in one book. It is a huge step up from some of the collections DC has released which lop the story in half because they went for too many issues; having extra is infinitely superior to too little.

I brought this for Brett Booth and sadly he only draws two issues in this collection. I can't comment on the plot because I brought it for the artwork. I'm a bit disappointed.
