BATMAN & CAPTAIN AMERICA (1997)

Story: John Byrne, Artwork: Patricia Rose Mulvihill

This book might appear a bit light in tone compared to most of the other books reviewed here, but it's a good read nonetheless.

Batman and Captain America represent the pinnacle of human perfection in their universes: it's just that Batman gained his physical prowess with years of hard work while Captain is the result of a scientific experiment. Their team-up is interesting.

The story is poignantly written. It's great to see Batman and Captain America and their sidekicks Robin and Bucky join forces to defeat their respective enemies. I liked the concept of Joker and Red Skull as the villain duo of the book.

The ending was well done with a feeling of inspiration

All in all, this is not the subtlest of graphic novels, but a welcome addition to any collection.
