    The Action Comics series has taken a break from action to deliver a heart wrenching and emotional look at Supermans past. The comic delivers on that front and paves the way for not only the continuation of Psi War, but also the future inner struggle that Superman has to face. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Oct 4, 2013

    I liked the opening scene, the exposition and reveals by the Psycho Pirate and the art work in the H.I.V.E. HQ. And I liked this ending with Lois being powered, nice cliffhanger. And Tyler Kirkham's art is very nice. And I didn't mind necessarily the attacks in the past as a concept but I very much disliked the idea that Superman has the feeling so deeply ingrained and that he would succumb to them so quickly. Heck, he kind of shrugged off the Black Mercy all those years ago. Surely he would question why Ma and Pa hate him. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Brian Bannen Oct 7, 2013

    With Mike Johnson at the helm, Action Comics is in good hands. The writing is much improved from previous issues, and the humanity that Johnson brings to Superman makes the character interesting. While the issue is light on the action, it definitely builds up its tension so that when Clark is free from the Pirate's clutches - and we know that he will be - he won't hesitate to use all that power to bring his opponent down. Plus, given what we see on the final page, Lois Lane has a party to play in this story, and who better to defend Clark than the one person who understands him best. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Oct 2, 2013

    Art duties are split between Tyler Kirkham and Jesus Merino. Their styles are similar enough that the book maintains a cohesive feel, although there are a few inconsistencies along the way. It's their efforts that take this underwhelming story and give it at least a few excellent pages of art to make it worthwhile. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Oct 2, 2013

    Action Comics #23 is a pretty average read.  The story is clich and there was nothing special about the art.  The end reveal may prove interesting in the upcoming Psi War books, but I cannot recommend this book on it's own. Read Full Review

    First part of Psi Wars was much better. The Psycho Pirate isn't a terribly interesting foe. I liked The HIVE Queen and Hector Hammond far more. The art was rather uneven as well.
