    If anything though, Superwoman #3 makes a compelling argument for giving this series a try, starting from the beginning to see how ambitious this sort of narrative can be while still being in keeping with a very traditional superhero framework. It's a value in every sense of the word and a great continuation of one of DC's most ambitious comics. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Oct 18, 2016

    So overall, this, like the others before, was a very dense read. There is a nice back-and-forth look at Lana and Lena. We get to contrast Lana's power/helpless feelings with Lena's power/megalomania. And we get to drink in all this luscious art. This isn't a title you can flip through. You need to dive in and take your time. It is a deep story well worth reading. What does everybody think? Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Oct 12, 2016

    This is one of those books that takes place in the Super-world without directly being about Superman. For years, it's been known that Clark's supporting cast could hold its own in a series. Superwoman is not what most probably had in mind, but this title is very well done and it's is taking the characters we already care about and giving them a story line that is not dependent on Superman.

    Superwoman started off strong, struggled in issue #2, and now is finding the voice of this new super hero. Jimenez and Lupacchino have work to do to keep readers engaged with this Superwoman, but with his knowledge of the universe and her artistic style, readers should be in for a ride. Read Full Review

    This series has been a solid addition to the Superman franchise, but it could be even better with a slightly less heavy-handed approach. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Oct 15, 2016

    I'm liking Superwoman so far, but I think the comic would benefit from stopping and smelling the roses. There is just so much going on, with so many characters, and all of it seems monumental. Lana Lang is dying. Lex Luthor is being held prisoner. Steel and his niece are hanging out. Atomic Skull is doing stuff. Lena Luthor is a new villain with an army of lady Bizarros. It's crazy! Entertaining, but crazy. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Oct 15, 2016

    This is the first issue of this burgeoning series that offered a small measure of disappointment, but that's just because writer Phil Jimenez doesn't provide the pencil art here. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Oct 12, 2016

    Some flashbacks, some new information, and about 120 minutes worth of actual in-story time makes for a fairly reasonable comic book (particularly at $2.99!) Some revelations are surprising, but not really shocking, and the ending is somewhat flat. The art is terrific, though the layouts seem crowded in this whole series. Overall, this issue is better than getting punched in the mouth, which will probably entice some of you degenerates to check it out. Read Full Review

    ComiConverse - Kyle King Oct 15, 2016

    Billed initially as a Lois Lane solo title, Superwoman stunned readers straight out of the gate by killing off its supposed star in the opening edition. This has left Loiss reluctant partner, fellow costumed crime-fighter Lana Lang, to fight the good fight alone. Is Lana stable enough in mind and body to serve as the sole surviving Superwoman?

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Oct 15, 2016

    And with my three issue rule in effect, this is my last installment of Superwoman. This is a book I really wanted to like but was unable to find enough to really keep me around as it simply requires too much knowledge elsewhere and is hitting things at such a fast and chaotic pace that it left me feeling empty by the end of the issue. I like the concept but the execution simply left me flat. Jimenez has a lot he wants to do here and I'm definitely interested in the big picture but it lacks a strong human element to anchor it. This installment works out well with Emanuela Lupacchino stepping in for the artwork, an artist whose work I adore, and it provides a surprisingly good bit of continuity with the previous installments that I wasn't expect. Sadly, this book just didn't make it for me even as I really wanted it to because I'm totally intrigued by Lana in this role. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Tyler Sewell Oct 12, 2016

    This is still a good series that has a ton of potential. This issue, in my opinion, is just a small blemish on an otherwise solid start for Jimenez and Lupacchino. It all came down to some irksome character conversations that ruined the buildup of Lena's villainous status. I'll still be looking for fireworks next month. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Dusty Good Oct 18, 2016

    There are tons upon tons of untapped potential here. I fear that we will not see this title last long enough to get out of its own way to make use of it. Wonderful art is saddled with a piss poor story. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Oct 12, 2016

    I almost think that this series should have been separated into two separate series as they are trying to do too much in one book. Originally this book started out to be Lana and Lois with Lex tossed in a bit. Now the book is 50/50 Lana and Lex fighting for top billing. I was a big fan but this series has all but lost me now. I don’t know how many more issues I can give this one before I completely give up on it. Now that our main villain has appeared maybe things will pick up, but I don’t have high hopes on that.
