Superman: Peace on Earth

Description: Superman decides to fight world hunger on a global scale for a day.

Thereís actually no way to really describe this story. The elegance is in the metaphoric writing by Paul Dini. The heartbreaking imagery of Alex Ross.

Since, Superman, in many ways, represents America, this is story of how one man canít really solve the worldís problems with big bold heroic gestures. 

Itís about the little things. Itís about planting seeds and letting them grow. 

Itís about the giant tree that can spring from something little. 

Really, I should save this review for Christmas, because this is a Christmas story. Superman loving Christmas and wanting to spread the holiday spirit of giving. To energize people to give and finally coming to a realization of what that requires. 

Batman: War on Crime

Description: Batmanís interactions with a boy who has just lost his parents to crime. 

Also, by Paul Dini with art by Alex Ross, this is an intimate story. Batmanís war on crime isnít with strange sociopaths and their strange quirks.  

The crime in this story is familiar. The result of poverty and apathy and pain.  

In beautiful images, Batman mediates on the results of loss and what a true war on crime requires. 

It ends where it begins, with the dawn.
