    In its return, Supurbia is an impressive, strongly crafted read. Grace Randolph is a great storyteller, and Russell Dauterman an outstanding artist. The book has all the necessary elements to be more than worth the buy, and if readers wondered if Randolph could pull off making Supurbia an ongoing series, their doubts will be assuaged by the end of the comic.

    The series is unique in it's twist, perspective and execution that'll appeal to a broad swatch of comic fans. Do yourself a favor and pick up not just this first issue, but the trade of the mini-series that's come before. Read Full Review

    I'll admit that I'm scoring this issue a bit higher than it might warrant as a standalone, but knowing just how well Randolph pulled off the first Supurbia miniseries, I'm willing to grade heavily on future potential. Read Full Review

    First Comics News - Matthew Szewczyk Nov 30, 2012

    This comic has gotten quite the reputation as being a "Desperate Housewives" version of a super-hero universe and that description rather fits. There is adultery, backstabbing, drug use and the heroes often seem as back as the villains. This is the second mini-series of the title and if you have not read the first mini-series than you will be pretty lost starting out with this one. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Christof Bogacs Nov 21, 2012

    Just Like the Heroes itportrays, Suburbiais flawed but lovable with an undeniable appeal and ‘reality Tv' addictiveness to it.Overall Issue #1 is a good read, and easily one of Booms strongest titles. Although the series is still very much finding its feet at this stage, as far asI'mconcerned Randolph is succeeding to deliver a bold new take on the superhero genre that will especially resonate with female readers.
