    Superman vs Predator: - 3.5 stars - Superman heads down to South America to save some scientists. There he acquires an alien virus that eliminates most of his power or this would be over in about 3 seconds. Supes has to fight terrorists and a Predator. Alex Maleev is still finding his style in the book. Superman vs Terminator - 3.5 stars - A Terminator shows up and Supes gets zapped to the future where he must defeat SkyNet. At the same time, Terminators are showing up by the dozen to fight Super Superman vs Predator: - 3.5 stars - Superman heads down to South America to save some scientists. There he acquires an alien virus that eliminates most of his power or this would be over in about 3 seconds. Supes has to fight terrorists and a Predator. Alex Maleev is still finding his style in the book. Superman vs Terminator - 3.5 stars - A Terminator shows up and Supes gets zapped to the future where he must defeat SkyNet. At the same time, Terminators are showing up by the dozen to fight Supergirl and they team up with Cyborg Superman. It's a fun book with great art by Steve Pugh. Batman / Hellboy / Starman - 5 stars - This is the jewel of the bunch. James Robinson (creator of 90's Starman) and Mike Mignola (creator of Hellboy) team up for a fantastic crossover. Hellboy comes to Gotham to help out Batman with some Nazis. The Nazis capture the Golden Age Starman and the 90's Starman shows up to go save his dad with Hellboy when Batman gets called away. Mignola draws a great Batman and Joker! Ghost / Batgirl - 1 star - This thing is a mess with poor art. Ghost teams up with Cassandra Cain and Oracle to track down some missing girls. Two-Face shows up because they need a Bat villain I guess. It's awful.

    The main-page description of the stories in this book is pretty accurate. However, if you are like me, you would prefer that a title actually reflect the book, than you should know: THE JUSTICE LEAGUE, PER SE, IS NOT ACTUALLY IN THIS BOOK!

However, if you are like me, you would prefer that a title actually reflect the book, than you should know: THE JUSTICE LEAGUE, PER SE, IS NOT ACTUALLY IN THIS BOOK! But that's OK, you still get some great stories for your buck. Superman in the jungle, weakened by an alien illness or poison, crosses paths with Predator. Sarah Connor and John Connor arrive in Metropolis, with the usual cadre of time-travelling Terminators in their wake, while the Resistance accidentally draws Supes into the future. The original retired Starman is kidnapped by magic-wielding neo-Nazis, and Batman, Hellboy, and the current Starman team up to rescue him. All have good art and good stories (although the Terminator story tries too hard on too little "legs"). And then there is the one story I actively disliked. Ghost (a Dark Horse rebel super-agent version of Kitty Pride) meets the Cassandra Cain Batgirl and Barbara Gordon Oracle team to take on... someone I don't know, at the same time he crosses Two-Face. This story also tries to be too much, and none of it actually firmed up into a believable, likeable story. There's too much sexuality in the first half of the storyline. Ghost is another one-in-a-million porn-star body and supermodel hairstyle stuffed into a costume by Frederick's of Hollywood that cannot support her figure, let alone the weapons and ammo she uses per issue. And she has superpowers on top of it. At least Batgirl looks almost like a teenager. In a ninja outfit, but still a teenager. Sorry, ladies, I know this is the only tale here where the women kick 100% ass, but they are 100% someone's fantasy, and not good story material. If this tale had a good story. Ah, well. Free from the library, and lots of cartoon action. Who am I to complain?

    This collects four DC/Dark Horse Crossover series: Superman/Predator, Superman/Terminator, Batman/Starman/Hellboy, and Batgirl/Ghost. My favorite of the four is Batman/Starman/Hellboy (sadly, the shortest), which makes good use of all of the characters, though Batman only plays in the first of the two issues. Batgirl/Ghost looks the best, although it borders on indecent in some cases; it also introduces the more interesting characters with Ghost's nemesis Greymater making a much better impression This collects four DC/Dark Horse Crossover series: Superman/Predator, Superman/Terminator, Batman/Starman/Hellboy, and Batgirl/Ghost.

Batgirl/Ghost looks the best, although it borders on indecent in some cases; it also introduces the more interesting characters with Ghost's nemesis Greymater making a much better impression than Two-Face does (and it features the Cassandra Cain Batgirl, which is also a plus). It's topics are a little uncomfortable (regeneration and sex slavery), especially considering the overall tone, and the final issue is a little rushed, but it's overall a decent story. Superman/Terminator has its moments but it suffers from the glaring plot holes that have always dogged Terminator stories, and the future section of the story is resolved way too easily. And the artwork doesn't even try to capture Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor. The first story, and also the longest, is Superman/Predator. It has to depower Supes to even offer a challenge, and that depowering makes Superman a bit of a blah character. And some of the other characters make very questionable choices. (view spoiler)[ A black female scientist who is okay with Eugenics? Really? (hide spoiler)] . It has the 'noble' Predator in action, too, which basically seems to exist only as an excuse for why it doesn't just kill everyone. The action is okay and the art is appropriately grainy and gritty, but it's the story I had the most trouble getting through. All told, none of the stories are really good enough to recommend on their own. At best they're diversions, and none really does anything effective with the characters from either side of the publishing companies. I don't regret reading it, but I wouldn't tell anyone to go out of their way to pick it up either.

    A mixed bag. The worst of the bunch is the awful superman vs terminator. The real gold in this volume is the Mignola art. Loved his take on Batman and the Joker.

    I don't review ALL the trades I read with regular books. Just that longer ones. Overall, I give this one a three. I admit I actually only bought this for two miniseries. Superman vs. Predator on every level should not have worked. But it had an interesting means of getting them on the same power level (so the Predator was an actual threat to The Man Of Steel) and a few other really nice twists. It was not one of the two stories I bought the book to read but I was glad I did. Superman vs. Terminat I don't review ALL the trades I read with regular books. Just that longer ones.

It was not one of the two stories I bought the book to read but I was glad I did. Superman vs. Terminator: This one should not have worked. Superman is a beacon of optimism and hope. The Terminator is franchise about predetermination, fate and fatalism. Instead of being incompatible, that's sort of why the story works. I have a thing about insane crossovers. Sometimes I read knowing or hoping they will be bad. IE: the third DC/He-Man that brought in the entire Justice League and John Constantine. This story found a way to be true to the rules of both characters without feeling like an out and out betrayal of either one. I went in wanting to read it for being unbelievably bad. I came out feeling I'd read one of the better DC Darkhorse crossovers ever. Batman/Hellboy/Starman: My one and only complaint about this one is that it could have/should have been longer. See, both Robinson and Mignola have in common is that their stories really need a little time to brood. You don't quite get enough of that here. I wanted more interaction with Batman and Hellboy. I wanted more time with Hellboy and Jack. Hell, I wanted to see a World War II story with Hellboy and Ted. In fact, the only thing keeping this collection from being a gem is Batgirl/Ghost. Maybe it's because I don't read ghost. But really the first three issues are a pretty straight forward mystery. The last issue and a half try to make it a metaphor for people's right to do too much with too little space left. A lot of interesting ideas are thrown in near the end but the ending seemed to scream... 'Gah... we're only four issues long and non-canon? Then fuck it!'

    Three great crossovers, and one not so hot... Superman/Predator - dynamite art by Alex Maleev, with a nifty story about a depowered Superman facing a Predator and scientists intent on using Predator tech against earth.

Superman gets caught up in Skynet's war on John Connor, defending the boy and his mother before being thrown into the future. Naturally, Cyborg Superman is involved! I wish they'd followed up on the last page, because it sets up a very interesting sequel that never came to pass. Batman/Hellboy/Starman - the dream team of James Robinson and Mike Mignola! Moody and funny, this crossover wouldn't sound like it ought to work, but boy howdy it does. I only wish Batman had played more of a role in the second issue, partly because Mignola draws a delightful Joker. I remember reading this in the Starman Omnibus series but appreciated having it in a collection where it's easier to find. Ghost/Batgirl - wasn't crazy about this one. The plot was a little murky, and some of the writing seemed tone-deaf (including a weird conversation about Oracle's disability). Two-Face shows up but seems out of character; maybe this would have worked better if I knew more about Ghost's supporting cast. All told, worth the read, especially for the playful weirdness of these characters crossing over.

    A real mixed bag of crossover stories.

    I didn't much care for the Predator and Terminator crossovers. To me they were too nakedly an attempt to cash in on popular movie franchises. Each of them were a stretch. In neither the of the movie franchises was there even the smallest hint they were living in the DC superhero universe. I preferred the Batman/Hellboy and Batgirl/Ghost crossovers. They were grittier, and I found the stories themselves to be better. I didn't much care for the Predator and Terminator crossovers.

    I’m sorry I fell victim to this cash grab. I’m a geek so of course seeing Hellboy and Batman together on the cover piqued my interest immediately. All of the stories are lazy, boring, nonsensical slogs. It really is a shame too bc Batman/Hellboy could’ve been something special. I think the Superman/Terminator crossover was the strongest but that’s not saying much. Maybe it’s just bc I’m a mark for Hank Henshaw *shrug*. Whatever, avoid this comic and look elsewhere for fun crossovers.

    Good, but not great. The best pick of the lot was Batman/Hellboy/Starman, with exceptional art and a good story. Then Superman/Predator, (which manages to equalize what should be a five second fight and ups the stakes quite well), and then Terminator/Superman and Ghost/Batgirl are tied in third. None of the stories are awful but the only essential one is Batman/Hellboy/Starman, the others you can leave and not be any worse off.

    The Batman/Hellboy stuff is awesome. The Superman/Predator stuff is ok. Everything else is garbage. This is exactly what I wanted to see from a Batman/Hellboy crossover, such a shame its only two issues. This whole book is worth it just for those two issues though. Can't really recommend the rest of this book. Wack 90's garbage. The Batman/Hellboy stuff is awesome. The Superman/Predator stuff is ok. Everything else is garbage.

    This wasn't nearly as good as it could have been. The idea was awesome, but the writing just wasn't that great. I was looking forward to the Batman/Hellboy team up more than anything, and Batman was barely in it. The last story with Ghost, Batgirl, and Oracle was probably the best one, and it was still lacking. I'm just disappointed. This wasn't nearly as good as it could have been.

    Predator/Superman - uses a rather convenient virus to suppress Superman's powers, otherwise it'd be a 5-page story lol. Otherwise, rather readable, though supporting cast was meh. Some nice pre-Daredevil Maleev art. Terminator/Superman - train wreck, but at least comprehensible. Hellboy/Starman/Batman - slight tale, but very readable and lovely Mignola art. Ghost/Batgirl - utterly incoherent. Predator/Superman - uses a rather convenient virus to suppress Superman's powers, otherwise it'd be a 5-page story lol.

    via NYPL - Four DC/Dark Horse crossovers collected here, but there's little to see. Superman/Predator is perfunctory with a young Alex Maleev struggling to deliver consistent characters or clear storytelling on the art side. Superman vs. Terminator could've been interesting - Superman and old Steel in the future vs Skynet could've been epic, but falls flat. Supergirl and Superboy vs an army of Terminators is endlessly dull, and Sarah Conner and Lois Lane have no direction throughout.

Batman/Hellboy/Starman, by Robinson & Mignola, is the only winner here, but it's brief and almost too-straightforward. It's pleasant, but certainly not worth wading through the remainder of this tome. Batgirl/Ghost swerves hard into forgettable cliche at every opportunity.

    Interesting. Basically from its founding as the adapter of some movies and other dark, gothic stories in the '80s and 90's, Dark Horse Comics had become an extraordinarily successful comic-book company. Its ties to DC Comics were pretty good. So good that they enabled several stories between DC Comics and Dark Horse comics crossovers that have become extraordinary. Walking through comic stores in the '90s has fascinated me as I watched some of these stories walk past my eyes. Some are not included Interesting.

Walking through comic stores in the '90s has fascinated me as I watched some of these stories walk past my eyes. Some are not included in this collection but they really have caught my eye. This collection does catch my eye in that same spirit and was willing to give it a shot. Story 1 - Superman vs Predator. A neat story that deals with Superman stopping a corrupt scientist in a developing South American country from committing genocide. But caught in the middle of this adventure is a Predator out looking for sport. Its interesting as Superman is weakened around this time, which is merely a convenient way for Superman to be depowered. Doesn't work for the Predator to hunt down an alien being with great power. If it was a fight it wouldn't last that long. A modest read but not as great as I expected. C+ Story 2- Superman vs Terminator. Quite possibly the best story of this collection even if its loaded with plot holes and once again is loaded with too many convenient setups. Sarah Connor and her son John are enjoying spending time shopping in a Metropolis mall when they are hunted down by a Terminator only for Superman to save the day. Unlike the movies, Skynet sends not one by an army of Terminators out to kill the Connors. This truly is a job for Superman as he does his best to save this family only to be whisked away to the future war that the Resistance led by an adult John Connor and John Henry Irons aka Steel fight the forces of Skynet and its Terminators. Back in the past Superman's family of heroes Linda Danvers/Supergirl and Conner Kent/Superboy take the wheel after Superman's disappearance as they fight the Terminators but also Hank Henshaw/Cyborg Superman and a Terminatrix. The story is chaotic but also very engaging. But it is not without its flaws. While there are plenty of cool things. I wish they actually depicted T-800 Model 101 - Arnold Schwarzenegger's character in this story. Plus this depicts Sarah as a helpless woman and not the fierce mama bear that she was in Terminator 2. B+ Story 3 - Batman Meets Hellboy with Starman. Didn't know too much about Starman but I have seen movies with Batman and Hellboy and was still pleasantly entertained but still, it wasn't as into it as the other stories. C Story 4 - Batgirl Meets Ghost. It was interesting seeing this alliance of female heroes take on villains from their respective universes. But the only ones I know were from DC and this Dark Horse character felt a little too bland for me. Nice art though. C+ Not a bad collection. C+
