    I liked this issue for showing how desperate Superman has become to get his powers back, but also for catching the book up to the June DC You preview.  Yep, if you've been looking to ask Wonder Woman out on a date, now is your chance because after this issue, she's a single lady.  The ending sets the book up for more crazy issues to come and I'm beginning to get excited for the Superman books again.

    Breaking up is hard to do, but I wouldn't be surprised if this isn't actually the end of the road for Superman/Wonder Woman - because if it is, this would be a particularly anticlimactic way for it to happen. (Still, if someone pulls the plug on this status quo, it won't be Tomasi's fault if he has to wrap it up immediately.) But at the same time, while Tomasi is going into some fairly subversive territory by watching this superhero romance turn sour, there are some consistency issues with the art and a real lack of emotional response that keeps this issue from being everything it could be. Right now, this is just a decent series - hopefully next month it will go back to being great. Read Full Review

    IGN - Levi Hunt Oct 22, 2015

    The goal of this Superman mega-arc crossover is clearly an ambitious one, and while the conclusion will tell whether all this was worth it or not, in the meantime we are stuck with a Superman who is utterly unlikable. Read Full Review

    Everyone associated with this issue should be embarrassed by its mistreatment of both the characters and their fans. Read Full Review

    Because this an awful book with awful characterization. Or maybe this is just the sort of world DC Comics wants to be publishing right now, which isn't for me. Read Full Review

    Supes' soups Oct 21, 2015

    This issue is pretty much an extended edition of the 8 page DCYou preview found in the back of the second month Convergence books. The art by Mahnke is strong and the facial expressions are skillfully contrived but if truth be told, I'm kind of hoping this title ends soon. Superman/Wonder Woman started off as a pleasant surprise with Soule and Tony S. Daniel but after Soule made his exit from the title (and all of DC for that matter) the book had some awkward in-between issues before being relegated to a tie-in series to the Superman "Truth" event (which I hope ends soon as well). In this issue, the relationship starts to fall apart, and Superman is becoming more and more hell-bent on returning to the status quo, because he's sick of wearing t-shirts and looking like a marine on leave at Comic-con. And at the end Superman kidnaps Parasite for who knows why. And voila we have another chapter in the books of an event that has overstayed its welcome. (For those looking for the genuine Superman, please see: Superman: Lois and Clark).

    Wasn't so bad but quite confusing.

    I know people disliked the idea of Superman and Wonder Woman, on account of Clark and Lois being such a fundamental aspect of the DC universe, but with the way Lois has been characterised from the beginning of the New 52 until now, the events of this issue are supremely unsatisfying. Assuming this is the end of Clark & Diana, having it happen in such an underwhelming way during such an underwhelming crossover is just so disappointing. Add all that to the bad characterisation and I begin to hope this issue can be dismissed as never having happened as far as the rest of the DC universe is concerned.
