Look! Up in the sky! It’s… two birds? Two planes?
Nope, it’s Superman and Captain Marvel!
The first meeting and friendship between two of DC Comics’ best-known caped heroes is explored in this shiny four-issue miniseries by writer Judd Winick (Green Arrow, Outsiders) and artist Joshua Middleton (NYX).
The highlight of this book, and one of Winick’s greatest strengths, is a look at what makes even the most powerful of characters human. Both the Man Of Steel and Captain Marvel are laid bare at times in First Thunder, making what otherwise might be an average superhero team-up tale something just a little deeper.
