Comics are not about plausibility and in this tale of the entwining lives of Superman and Batman--spanning an entire millennium--implausibility is gleefully celebrated. Taking as its starting point the notion that the two heroes would inevitably age, Byrne provides glimpses into the heroes (and their families') lives in each decade they have appeared, with each one imbued with the art styles and attitudes of the period. So, the Fifties are science fiction-led and garish, while the Eighties are darker and more cynical. From their first meeting at the 1939 World's Fair, where they are doubtful of each other's motives, to the progressing years, where they are an intricate part of each other's lives, Byrne certainly gives a roller-coaster ride of triumphs and tragedies, while never sacrificing any of the character's beloved traits. While it is an established idea that Superman would technically be immortal, Byrne concocts a decent way of allowing Bruce Wayne to survive to the fantastical 31st Century denouement. And, if the ending seems a tad forced, what does it matter? It is, after all, an "imaginary" story. Byrne's art, as always, is excellent, and he succeeds in forming a good, old fashioned romp, relatively free of moral complexity or depth, settling for out and out adventure--which, basically, is what comics are all about. --Danny GraydonAbout the Author:
Born in England and raised in Canada, John Byrne discovered superheroes through "The Adventures of Superman" on television. After studying at the Alberta College of Art and Design, he broke into comics first with" Skywald" and then at Charlton, where he created the character Rog-2000. Following his tenure at Charlton, Byrne moved to Marvel, where his acclaimed runs on "The Uncanny X-Men" and "The Fantastic Four" soon made him one of the most popular artists in the industry. In 1986 he came to DC to revamp Superman from the ground up, and since then he has gone on to draw and/or write every major character at both DC and Marvel.
