Read full description of the books:



Something happened to the "World's Finest" series in the late 60s from the looks of things. This volume started off like the others, with Superman and Batman teaming up to do whatever the individual stories demanded. Most took the formula and tone of a Superman story from that era, namely how it looks like something awful has happened and the good guys are about to lose only for the reader to learn at the last minute that at least one of the two heroes (usually Superman) was wise to something the entire time and was actually working to trick the villains of the week. There are also a few "imaginary stories" where the writers could do stuff like make Superman powerless or blind and not fix him at the end. Bob Haney and Bob Kanigher provide their usual levels of Silver Age insanity, and then two-parters start to show up, where the two are captured by an evil foreign government in Central Europe, or one really screwy one where the two go undercover to infiltrate and bring down "The Mafia" (which is gonna look really odd to anyone who's ever seen a mob movie like The Godfather or read a newspaper account of real mafias). Aside from the Mafia storyline, most of the bad guys are more Superman-centric than Batman-centric.

Then near the end Denny O'Neil takes over as the writer and the book seems to change into Superman team-up book, with Batman sometimes relegated to a short cameo. There's Flash race (with an actual winner for once!) and a Green Lantern fight, and the promise that the next issue will team the Action Ace up with Aquaman. My favorite issue probably comes from there, written by Mike Friedrich, and has Superman teaming up with Robin. Friedrich did some of my favorite stories from Showcase Presents Robin volume, where Robin goes off to college and has to deal with conflicting feelings over how to walk the narrow tightrope between his law-and-order background and the college radicalism many of his classmates embraced to one degree or another, and Friedrich brings a bit of that here too for a story involving aliens taking superbeings for powersources. Not bad at all.
