On the other end of the spectrum, I think I'm dropping World's Finest. It was decent to start, but has just never really set my world on fire. This issue was just mediocre, and the awkward characterization of Damian (even if he's just a guest star) made it worse. I really do need to do some trimming from my pull list, so this one is the easiest to let go
I admire Worlds Finest more than I like it. The concept is workable, I enjoy the artwork, but the writing isn't gelling for me. It's a boring book, and the characters range from unlikeable to bland. However, I do like the banter between Helena and Damian, and the age difference between them keeps the "You're me but gender-swapped" subtext from becoming creepy.
