Batman Superman: Volume 1 Cross World


Before reading this graphic novel, you should know that the storyline takes place on two worlds, which are both like each other with small variations.  As Superman and Batman team together and fight their way through the mayhem, Kaiyo, the Chaos Bringer, enters the scene.  She takes both Batman and Superman to another world where they meet their younger selves.  Enter Earth Two.In this world, Batman and Superman are younger versions on themselves, not quite up to speed with their older, newly transported counterparts. It's here they meet Kaiyo and find out the chaos she brings is  far bigger and badder than they expected.  Darkside is coming....The novel then leaps into another story altogether, giving background into who Darkseid was as a person and how he became an ultimate destroyer with the power of gods.  Can Batman and Superman join forces in both worlds to stave off destruction?I admit, I haven't read a graphic novel in a long time, and this was a great introduction back into the world of GN and superheroes. Not only are Superman and Batman present, but Catwoman and Wonder Woman also make their debut.
