both tomasi and mahnke have recently lent their talents primarily to superman titles in recent years, though both creators have a storied history working with the cosmic side of the dcu over in the green lantern/green lantern corps comics. the duo previously tackled a tale of batman in a well-received team-up issue of batman & robin in which the caped crusader took on an adventure with frankenstein.
