    Comic Booked - Jeff Hill Jul 5, 2014

    This is by far the best issue of this series so far. The characterization is wonderful, the dialogue is fresh, and the artwork is unrivaled in not only DC Comics, but ALL current books on the stands. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jul 2, 2014

    It's hard to say if something is worth the wait, but Superman Unchained #7 is a really good issue.  The dialogue and action are great, but Jim Lee's art steals the show.  This issue just shows what this series could have continued giving us if it was ending in a couple of issues. It may take some back issue reading to remember what the hell is going on, but it's worth it.  Highly Recommended. Read Full Review

    Coming Up Comics - David Melton Jul 2, 2014

    This issue was well worth the wait and Superman Unchained continues to be on the top of our list. With Snyder, Lee, Williams and Sinclair doing what they're doing with this series, everyone benefits. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - David Staniusz Jul 4, 2014

    With amazing writing and art, Superman Unchained has ramped up to a exciting book. Yes the delays were a bit painful, however if they produced issues like this, it makes up for it. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Jul 5, 2014

    Just two more issues to go, so this should be wrapping up by, what, early 2015? Hope it'll have been worth the wait. Read Full Review

    I don't know when Superman Unchained #8 is hitting the shelves. But I will enjoy this maxi-series while it lasts. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jul 2, 2014

    Delays or not, it's worth getting reacquainted with Superman Unchained. Issue #7 offers the most action-packed and viscerally satisfying installment yet, as well as a far different but no less enjoyable take on Batman from Snyder. Lee's art quality remains steady, which in itself justifies the long wait. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Jul 2, 2014

    As you would expect, Scott Snyder and Jim Lee deliver another giant explosive issue. There's no holding back as the fighting and action takes the center stage. Lee's visuals are eye-opening and you'll love seeing every panel. It's not just non-stop action as Snyder gives us some more interaction between Superman and Lois that make you long for the old days. The biggest problem with this series is the release schedule. For whatever the reason is, it's deeply affecting the pacing of the story. It's unfortunate because I believe I'd enjoy this even more if I didn't have to keep going back to past issues to remind myself what happened. Regardless, I will stick it out to the end to see what Snyder and Lee have coming in the final two issues. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Jul 5, 2014

    The character work is somewhat flat, which is unexpected from Snyder, but it's a marvelous bash-fest regardless. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Amy Beddoes Jul 11, 2014

    Despite my jokes above, SUPERMAN UNCHAINED #7 is not by any means a starting point for a new reader. But it is a great issue, start to finish. I highly recommend tracking down #1 and starting from the beginning – after this issue, I definitely plan to. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Gregory Paul Silber Jul 3, 2014

    Superman Unchained #7 isn't the best that this series has had to offer, but with some deftly handled action, it's enough to make readers want to come back for more. I know I will. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Tim Stacey Jul 4, 2014

    Whereas the series' title infers a consideration of Superman being unencumbered physically, it also seems to consider the idea of Superman laid bare. In this story, Superman's vulnerability isn't just a possibility, it's a guarantee. In the face of certain death " whether at the hands of a human or an equally-powered, politically-opposed alien " all that's left is the symbol. It's about who Superman is, not what he can do. This idea is unfortunately buried under pages of action and cheap dialogue, making the issue much more brawn than brains. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Jul 2, 2014

    With so many double-page splashes, you can read this in less than five minutes. And as I mentioned above, if that's enough for you, give this an extra point (heck, give it two; it's worth an 8.5 for big stupid fun). But for me, the almost total emphasis on eye candy makes this all sugar and no protein–and therefore a lot of empty calories. Will keep an eye out for issue No 8 to see if the book comes down off all this adrenaline and returns to form–we're not done with Batman yet in this arc! Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Jul 2, 2014

    This was a pretty good read and Superman Unchained has proven to be one of the best Superman titles on the shelf, when it's available. The delays have definitely hurt this book and that is a big drawback. Snyder and Lee work very well together and should team up some more in the future if possible. While this run won't go down like Snyder's Batman run, it is still an entertaining self contained story. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge, III Jul 2, 2014

    On concept, Superman Unchained should be the perfect Superman series. But, sometimes even the stars get the wrong, and Superman Unchained #7 is one of those rare examples. Superman is a character with near limitless narrative potential but more often than not, he is regulated to a mere force of destruction with an eloquent mind. Snyder writes the narration as if it comes from a poet, but can’t stop showing the man behind that narration punching things, and Jim Lee is more than happy to oblige him. History may one day look kindly upon this weird misfire in comicdom, but as a reader in the present, you really aren’t missing anything. Read Full Review
