Get ready for seven fresh and exciting stories spotlighting Superman and his friends and foes by some of the industry's most promising talent! In one story, either Twilight-mania has finally hit Smallville, or Superboy has a vampire problem on his hands. Meanwhile, when a lab full of Jimmy Olsen clones escapes and runs amok in Metropolis, it's up to Superman and Jimmy to round 'em all up before things turn even more bizarre! And speaking of bizarre, take a trip to Bizarro World for "Bizarro Grounded"! Plus, stories of Supergirl, Krypto, Jor-El, and more!

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Feb 4, 2011

    It's an okay story but it just didn't grab me the way the other stories did. Part of it may be that Haspiel's art just doesn't work for me. I always have low expectations for books like this figuring they most likely represent a hodge-podge of talent cobbled together. But the last two Superman 80-Page Giants both were top notch.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Feb 5, 2011

    A surprisingly enjoyable romp with the Superman family, featuring generally stronger art than writing, though there are some good stories in here. Maybe not worth the total six bucks it's priced at, but certainly deserves the consideration, which is no small feat. Read Full Review

    And why exactly did Superboy and Wonder Girl start out looking distinct from Superman and Wonder Woman only to suddenly transform into characters who vaguely look like their parent characters? Read Full Review

    cxPulp - Craig Reade Feb 5, 2011

    Overall, I really enjoyed this issue. Every story with the exception of the Bizarro story was solid and fun, with few continuity strings attached. The art varied throughout the issue, some more impressive than other, but in every case (with the exception of the Bizarro story) the art was at least good enough to carry the story, if not improve on it. This is basically 2 and a half issues for $6 - and I think it was worth the price. Read Full Review
