Superman/Batman: Finest Worlds; written by Michael Green and Mike Johnson; illustrated by Rags Morales, Rafael Albuquerque and others (2009; collected 2010): Slight but enjoyable collection of three different story arcs from the now-cancelled Superman/Batman book. Superman loses his powers and Batman gains them; Thomas Wayne and Jor-El meet up in the months prior to Kal-El's arrival on Earth; cute miniature versions of DC's superheroes and villains drop in from an alternate universe. The whole collection is pleasantly Silver Agey, with very little sturm-und-drang. Recommended.
