    What an issue! Mark Waid and Dan Mora are setting up some heavy developments here, as it seems the Joker is shaping Boy Thunder’s future. Get ready for a jaw-dropping last page, as you will see just what can happen in the DCU. Just imagine!

    Gun to head this is probably my favorite title in DC right now. It’s close but the throwback classic writing style with Mora’s dynamic art truly makes for a pairing worthy of the World’s Finest.

    World’s Finest #10 is just absolutely fantastic. Waid’s script is so much fun and will undoubtedly delight fans with the big reveal. Mora can do no wrong. His artwork hits all the right notes emotionally and is just a wonder to behold. In short – this series just keeps getting better by the issue.

    Final Verdict: You don’t often find a perfect issue, but this one is a…

    Mark Waid does a great job of the panels where Joker and The Key are working together to try and get information out of Boy Thunder via torture and other means. I loved the conversation that Boy Thunder has with The Key in which the villain pretty much gives us his origin story in a few short paragraphs when he talks about the fact that human beings only use about 10 percent of their brains.

    Overall. A fantastic issue with a brilliant cliffhanger.

    The Story: Waid delivers an emotional and exciting story in this issue. The action is fantastic and I love seeing how the characters interact with each other. The addition of the Titans to the roster is great and gives the reader a great look at the stakes facing young heroes and their mentors as Superman is given some great drama to deal with in the story. I love the twist at the end of the issue and the reveal of who David really is. Makes me excited to see what happens next.

    The Art: From the horrific to the surreal, Dan Mora’s art is brilliantly detailed and beautifully designed. Every page has something that catches the eye and captures the imagination and I want more.

    Boy Thunder’s story takes a horrifying and tragic turn that will shock any DCU fan. This series continues to fire on all cylinders, and is one of the reasons I love comics.

    The second arc of this title has been highly intriguing, because it opens a new chapter in the past of the DCU and reveals a lost sidekick to the Man of Steel—Boy Thunder, a young energy-powered lad whose origin seems to parallel Superman’s in a big way but has a dark secret. (…) It’s another great installment in a series that features brilliant art and excellent characters, but definitely seems like it might read even better in a collected format.

    World’s Finest takes a dark turn in this latest issue, but doesn’t lose any of its quality as a result. Thunder Boy has found himself in the clutches of the Joker and the Key, allowing artist Dan Mora to stretch his legs and depict some mind-bending psychedelics. One of the biggest moments of this latest story is the final page, which plays into one of Mark Waid’s biggest comic stories from the past. Batman/Superman remains the best team-up between the two DC heroes in recent memory and this title is one to watch.

    Comic Watch

    Batman/Superman: World’s Finest #10 is an incredible book on all fronts and one of the best series of the year! All Batman and Superman fans won’t want to miss this one! With the way this issue ended, I’m looking forward to seeing what the series has in store for next year.

    Weird Science DC Comics

    Batman / Superman: World’s Finest #10 continues to hold the top spot as DC Comics’ best comic series. Everything about this comic screams “QUALITY,” from the outstanding writing by Waid to the mesmerizing art by Mora. But for a confusing stumble in the third act, this would be a perfect comic.

    The Batman Universe

    Batman/Superman: World’s Finest #10 finally reveals what this Boy Thunder arc has been about this whole time, and it’s about the inevitability of succumbing to the rising tide. This series just got heavy.

    First Comics News

    This issue delivers the dark secret behind Boy Thunder and this is a plot twist that no one saw coming (**NO SPOILERS**); Most of the issue sees Superman, Batman, and The Teen Titans race against the clock to find Boy Thunder after he’s been held captive by The Joker and The Key that really helps elevate the drama but it’s Dan Mora’s visuals that really steal the show as he brings such vivid yet wonderful images that not sees the heroes at their best but blows everyone’s minds in the process. Yes, the revelation of Boy Thunder is quite a shock, and fans of Mark Waid’s DC stories will get a kick out of it as this series continues to be a great Batman/Superman book that delivers on the action and respect for the continuity that paved the way for this series.

    This is a good, action-packed issue. It feels like it’s the culmination of David’s ordeal, where the drama is genuine and not just silly melodrama. The writing is on point, the cliffhanger is very exciting, and the art is excellent. What more could you ask for in a superhero comic? Recommended!

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary

    This is a solid issue perhaps a bit padded to get us to this point in the story. But I love the ending. I suppose it is a compliment to the creators that this issue, which is solid, isn’t up to their usual stellar heights.
