" A] fun read....Batman and Superman meet in this retro-flavored novel set amid the Cold War sensibilities of the 1950s."
The Dark Knight meets the Man of Steel in Enemies & Allies--the thrilling story of the first-ever meeting between Batman and Superman, brilliantly imagined by New York Times bestselling author Kevin J. Anderson. One of today's most popular writers pits the iconic superheroes against Lex Luthor and the Soviets--and each other--in a spellbinding story of destiny and duty set against the backdrop of America's Cold War era.
Praise For Enemies & Allies…
Positioning all the superpowered heroics squarely between the era’s futuristic optimism and postwar paranoia, this is a refreshing diversion from the grimness of The Dark Knight or the tedious Superman Returns. Injects a welcome dose of retro exuberance into the capes-and-tights routine.
“Anderson keeps us guessing throughout with cleverplot twists and some intriguing alternate cold war history.”
“The X-Files is a true masterpiece. There’s no more challenging series on television, and as a bonus, it’s also brainy fun.”
