    I am anticipating a massive brawl at some point during this arc, all the Supermen fighting who ever this flame-headed villain is. And that is going to be too fantastic. So kudos to Tomasi and Gleason for this arc. I am kind of giddy with it. Read Full Review

    At this point, I think it is safe to say you should be excited every time a Tomasi and Gleason Superman issue comes out because they will never let you down. Superman #15 is awesome and so much fun. The art really compliments the story and is executed flawlessly. This title is away from the Clark and Jon story that I loved from the start of the title but I have no problems with that since the Multiplicity story is highly enjoyable to read. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Batmanaruto Jan 18, 2017

    This was another strong issue, however I would say that it was a dip from last issue, but to be honest with you that is expected in the middle of an arc, and this got us hyped up definitely for the next issue. The art is some of the best we have seen in this series and is so reminiscent of Ivan Reis’s style in Multiversity. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Jan 18, 2017

    Superman #15 continues the intriguing exploration of the multiverse Grant Morrison explored in Multiversity in all the right ways. It's not overly convoluted, it moves at a fast clip, and it relishes in the eclectic look and feel of multiverse heroes. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jan 19, 2017

    Grant Morrison tends to be a tough act to follow in any situation, but Pete Tomasi has never been shy about picking up Morrison's loose threads and running with them. And so far, "Multiplicity" is shaping up to be every bit the worthy sequel to Multiversity that "Robin Rises" was to Morrison's Batman saga. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jan 18, 2017

    Even though this issue fails to meet the high standards of the series, there's some fun ideas here. Gleeson and Tomasi occasionally are too ambitious, but I'd much rather them overshoot than continually play it safe with Superman. Read Full Review

    Capeless Crusader - Jeremy Radick Jan 18, 2017

    Superman #15 is yet another example of how well DC, and this creative team in particular, is handling the character right now. After the last lacklustre few years, it finally feels like Superman is connecting with readers and going on the kinds of adventures worthy of his iconic stature. This issue, despite its cosmically high stakes and serious tone, feels like an adventure that we can have fun reading, with a hero at the center that lives up to the name Superman. Read Full Review

    As a fan of multiple Earth stories and as a fan of Superman, this storyline is pushing all the right buttons for me. I can't wait to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    The Pop Break - M.J. Rawls Jan 19, 2017

    The artistry also shines as well " the team of artists that worked on issue 15 (Clay Mann,Ed Benes,Jorge Jimenez,Ryan Sook) do the job of going through the transitions of battle in the first few frames and showing little nuances as our heroes go through some of the Earth realms to make them different. The end of the comic has a classic, epic "one shot" that embodies what the Superman character is and what they would want him to be. With the conclusion of the "Multiplicity" story line on the horizon, we have a good jumping point through this enjoyable Superman Rebirth run. Read Full Review

    The authors are aiming high in this ambitious arc, and, so far, they are maintaining the high quality of the source material they are extending. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jan 23, 2017

    Superman #15 is a strong second chapter to Peter Tomasi and Patrick Gleason's "Multiplicity" story arc. While the choice to have multiple artists work on this issue leaves something to be desired this chapter still delivered the impact it needed to. There is hardly a wasted moment in the story, which allows it to execute moments that we usually see in big blockbuster event comic books. With the threat of Prophecy clear and our Superman gathering so many fan favorite versions of himself "Multiplicity" has quickly turned into a must have comic for DC Comics fans. Read Full Review

    Not the most complex story, but it's nice to see someone actually pick up where Grant Morrison leaves off. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jan 18, 2017

    While I was all hyped for this issue from what we got previously, I couldn't help but be disappointed by all these strange things just being thrown at us without much of an explanation, while we took too much time catching people up on who the Justice Incarnate are and gathering the Supermen, which appears to come off pointless for what we ultimately got.  The art was half decent, but it didn't all jive well together for me and at this point, I just hope that the next issue brings everything together because I'm not really digging what we got from this.

    Nerd Church Radio - Ariel DuPey Jan 18, 2017

    I honestly don't know how I feel about this arc. It's really interesting and fun, it also feels very out there. The art is fantastic. I love how much the style changes with each Earth. The quirkiness of different Justice Leagues, you really get a sense of diving into the artists imagination and abilities. Maybe it seems off to me because it is so far off in continuity with the other Rebirth titles. It's its own funky little thing. Read Full Review
