    A strong issue if you're digging this new direction for Superman as you've never seen him like this before. Read Full Review

    The story confused, but the visuals entertained. I'm going to have to chase down the previous issue to see if that helps. However, I'll continue to purchase this title as long as Porter is on board. Read Full Review

    There's also a concurrent plot involving Jimmy Olsen attempting to find Superman that converges with the main one near the end. It leads to an interesting cliffhanger that should make readers want to come back for the next issue. Sure,Superman#46 isn't a perfect book, but I think it's still worth a read. Read Full Review

    Howard Porter brings a great deal of energy to these scenes, aided a great deal by the vibrant colors of Hi-Fi. Losing John Romita, Jr. was a blow to this book, but those two have helped lessen the impact. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Nov 30, 2015

    We have seen the deconstruction and the coarsening of Superman for a decade now. I don't think I need to see it anymore. And even when done well, like this issue, it remains a chapter in an overly long story that doesn't seem to want to end and get to the Superman I want to read. In a vacuum, this is a decent and fun issue. But it is tucked in a mega-event I can't get behind. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Nov 25, 2015

    The Superman title seems so far removed from what every other Superman comic is doing now that it's hard to really get into it because while it seems that this series has become further in the timeline than the rest of the titles, it does nothing to show Superman's growth in dealing with his new status quo.  If anything, it retrogresses him back to his earlier jerk off state, but adds a new spotlight seeking characteristic that just feels so wrong for the character.  Besides for all that though, this story is off the wall and is just throwing things out there hoping that any of the concepts stick, but nothing is connecting with me......... Well, besides for the art I guess because that's fantastic........ The rest though is nonsense.  Read Full Review

    I actually liked the fight club stuff. The idea of old gods who have to keep their story alive to survive and do so via conveying their narrative through modern means, but it's not very "Superman", and then we get to the Superman part of the issue and it's so, so bland. As with the last-but-one issue of Superman & Wonder Woman, I hope the significant event of this issue isn't as it seems, because to happen during this "Truth" arc would be such a waste.
