365 Comics...177: Batman/Superman #1 (2013)

Two things are bothering me about Batman/Superman:

1) The logo.  Terrible. Dull. Boring. Uninspired. General bleh all around.

2) Two artists. For serious?  I mean it is entirely possible that this was a sort of last-minute addition to the New 52 in order to bank off of Man of Steel's success and thus Jae Lee didn't have the lead time to pull the issue together on his own in full, but it doesn't inspire a lot of confidence when your series artist can't finish the first issue on his own (also possible: extenuating circumstances).  At least Ben Oliver's work seems to compliment this new-ish style Lee is working in.  Should we be taking bets on whether Lee survives this first story arc?
