    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Mar 5, 2014

    "Only Child" is a remarkable addition to the mythology of the Man of Steel. This three-parter epitomizes the notion of what this title should be and what Superman can and should be for comic readers. As the pacing for the digital to print goes, this story is going to add up to one magnificent standalone print comic book. Most importantly, though, this is my Superman. This is my dad's Superman. This is my six-year-old nephew's Superman. Marz and Shaner combine to tell a timeless tale of the Last Son of Krypton in a story that answers the perpetual question, "What's so special about Superman?" I only hope DC figures out a way to bring these guys back for more. A creative team that clicks like this and a timeless tale such as "Only Child" unlocks the potential of the DC Digital First program. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Lan Pitts Mar 10, 2014

    This arc elevates Shaner to mid-carder to potential main event player and proves Marz's ability that he's still one of the best storytellers on his generation. "Only Child" not only continues the Adventures of Superman's strong lineage, but something that Superman fans who never latched on to the New 52 can find solace in. The Adventures of Superman title has had a lot of great talent so far for such a freshman title, but given this story alone, is probably the Superman title you should concern yourself with.

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Mar 4, 2014

    Adventures of Superman #45 is the conclusion to Ron Marz and Doc Shaner's Only Child story and it really good.  It is just good old fashioned storytelling and art and I loved it for just that.  The story is touching and I recommend it highly.  This type of arc is why I really love the Adventures of Superman.
