KAV & TONY BREAK IT DOWN: WORLD'S FINEST COMICS #146 - PART I - PAGES 1 TO 4

Kav and Tony Break it Down is nothing more than two long-time comic book readers making fun of the Golden and Silver Age Superman comics. We understand that these books were written for a juvenile audience but we could not resist reviewing these classics. Please note that no comic books were hurt during the review.

Kav has selected World's Finest Comics #146, which features 'Batman, Son of Krypton'. This comic was published in 1964 and the writer was Edmond Hamilton and the pencils were done by Curt Swan while the inks were done by Sheldon Moldoff.

KAV: We see the splash-setting up the premise-as if the cover didn't already do that. Keep in mind back then DC would come up with a cover idea, then write a story around it-which may explain some of the incredible plot points they came up with...

TONY: Bruce-El? I can't wait to read how this craptacular tale unfolds.

KAV: Superman has to leave an 'important experiment' with Batman to go observe 5 minutes of silence for doomed Krypton. We see Supergirl dangling in space stating that she will never ~choke~ forget Krypton. Glad she said this cause I thought she might forget her doomed home world since she has the attention span of an insect. Good thing the Batcave is stocked with lots of Krypton footage so Supes can mourn correctly....

TONY: Let's take five minutes of silence for Kav and Tony who have to read this god awful story.

KAV: We see Batman troubled by unexplained memories of Krypton...how could he possibly know these things? Uh, dude-maybe it's because you and Stuporman visit the place almost weekly....duh.

TONY: The Red Tower is not at all phallic. Not at all.

KAV: Suddenly Batman remembers flying as a child????! Wtf? That's a memory that slipped his mind? Criminy. In the last panel Robin ponders Batman being a Kryptonian-"OH no it can't be!" Like it's the most horrible thing in the world. What a racist.

TONY: World's Finest Comics? I dispute that claim. I really do. This just might be the most boring story we've reviewed, Kav. I need a nap.

Stay tuned, kids, we'll continue this review next Tuesday.
