DOUBLE-SIZED FINALE to the best new comic in years as the first volume of Superior draws to a close and the creators promise is the best fight-scene they have ever achieved on the printed page. It's Superior versus Abraxas in the middle of New York and thousands of innocent people dying every time someone throws a punch. Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass) has already snapped up the rights for this book meaning Millar has yet another movie franchise he can boast about. Buy this now while it's still cheap. Plus: An exclusive 6-page lettered preview of the new Supercrooks series by Mark Millar and Leinil Yu, launching in January.

    This is the final issue of Superior. When a series comes to an end, there's always the fear and anticipation that of it ending incredibly well or becoming a big disappointment. Mark Millar knows how to put on a show. We get an epic battle for the soul of little Simon Pooni while the lives of millions are at stake. Leinil Yu's art is a breath of fresh air as he crams in the perfect amount of detain into each panel, giving the story a realistic feel. When major forces are fighting each other, you expect to see utter chaos and Yu shows it nicely. We do get a satisfying ending. There is a moment of cheesiness right before the end but it can be overlooked just by the satisfaction of the final battle. Is this the absolute end for Superior? It appears so and if that's the case, it's a nicely done job by Millar and Yu. Read Full Review

    Light, enjoyable and not to filling. This will make a fun movie when it comes out and I'll be right there in line to pay my money and then complain that it wasn't edgier. Read Full Review

    Whatever Superior lacks in sheer creativity it makes up for in fun and loving homage to heroes like Captain Marvel and Superman. Sadly, Superior also proves to be the Millarworld book left least open for a sequel. Oh well, hopefully Millar and Yu's next project will be as enjoyable. Read Full Review
