    SUPERMAN: THE COMING OF THE SUPERMEN isa love letter to the comic book fans of yesteryear. It even makes someone like me, who was not around during theSilver Age of comics, long for the good old days when writers were able to have fun with aSuperman story. It's definitely a must-read for anyone who is a fan of Neal Adams or classic Superman comics! Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Apr 8, 2016

    You could sum this issue up as Superman's fist just punching through everything and everyone until its final page. Superman kicks major ass and behaves in a very heroic fashion, despite being a little curt at times. All of the characterizations seem spot-on, and of course the interiors by Neal Adams look so dynamic. My only misgiving is that we don't have answers to a lot of questions lingering from the first issue, and we've compounded our questions since then. So I'm guessing issue six will actually be an hour-long video where Neal Adams explains how much psilocybin he was on when he wrote this story. Read Full Review

    I'm still not sold on the series - it has some really odd moments (the scene with Luthor and Darkseid defies description), but at least it's trying to give us a big, booming tale - so it deserves some credit there. But it is one odd comic. Read Full Review

    While the dialogue still isn't perfect, it has slightly improved from the previous issue and I continue tolove how the artwork takes me back to yesteryear.Superman: The Coming of the Supermenmay not be bulletproof, but I look forward to each issue of this mini-series because it's a ton of fun. Therefore, Neal Adams has done his job. Read Full Review

    I am liking that its reading like a 1970s comic and that there are finally some inkers added to it, but it still feels like being dropped in the middle of the story and I have reviewed every issue so far. Read Full Review

    Neal Adams's unbridled imagination is on full display, but the exuberant storytelling is mired in the muddled plotting. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Apr 6, 2016

    Outrageous dialogue, incomprehensible character moments, and a plot that is becoming a chore to understand can't save this book. If you can enjoy it for it's over the top campy nature you might like it, but after 3 issues it's beginning to wear on me. Read Full Review

    This comic seems to have degraded into an insane mess...which I saw coming, I wouldn't pick up any modern comic with Neal Adam's name on it without expecting a wreck of Hindenberg proportions. Still, it continues to be a fun, goofy mess, and unlike Batman: Odyssey it is just short enough to not become a gigantic slog. I look forward to seeing how utterly insane this book continues to be and become!

    This book was a bit all over the place, succumbing to the Neal Adams Batman Odyssey problem. It needs something or someone to pull back the reins and focus this story a bit. There was more clunky and awkward dialogue, and a great (objectively) shot of Lois Lane's journalistic integrity... Lol I'm just kidding I mean her butt. Beyond that, there's good fighting, but no real progress to the story until the last page. Somehow I don't even feel like New Krypton was that big of a reveal. Maybe Im just already waiting for the rug to get fully pulled out from under me, but I'm feeling a bit cautious about this story going forward.
