Review:  Basically you have two sexy women (whose hair miraculously seems to fall back into place perfectly despite any major battles) with super powers that run around in skin-tight outfits getting their butts kicked a lot. They come from an alternate Earth and whine a lot about wanting to go home. Meanwhile, they use their powers to attain a lot of money (hello ethics) and sleep around, when they are not battling and getting their butts kicked.

Despite the fact that I was clearly not a fan of the story, I did feel that the artwork was well-done. I just wish it had had more substance to support it.

Based on this book, I won’t be continuing with the World’s Finest series. But hey, I can see where it might appeal to tween boys, so maybe there is a market for it, after all.
