    Major Spoilers - Chris Wilson Dec 16, 2012

    What would Lois Lane do if she were dumped for a super-villain? How would the wife of Batman react if she knew of the homosexual relationship with Robin that so many people suspect? Supurbia is a book that looks to answer some of those questions. Not all the ideas are completely original, but the stories that come out of those ideas make for a compelling, fun read. Superhero comics are soap operas and Grace Randolph embraces it, providing drama worthy of daytime TV. I love the stories presented here and believe that readers who like superheroes but look for a new take on them will be happy with Supurbia. This issue continues the great storytelling of the first.

    Supurbia #2 carries on the torch of this great series, covering many bases and keeping each story rolling as one whole story together. This comic is the perfect story for an older generation of comic readers who just can't relate to super heroes any more. It adds that married with/without kids dynamic that older readers may be looking for, and keeps it exciting and fun, but with very dark undertones. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Brian Bannen Dec 17, 2012

    Despite the quick changes, Supurbia is still an intriguing read. Because Randolph created the characters, she has free reign to do with them as she pleases, and this tangible confidence is present in the way in which she builds her conflicts. Basically, it's clear that Randolph knows what she's doing, and where she wants to go with her story. And given the nuggets Randolph has given readers, it looks like the characters are in for a serious rude awakening, and life in the superhero suburbs will never be the same. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Christof Bogacs Dec 16, 2012

    Although Supurbia still has some teething issues with Randolph and Dauterman both lacking in comic book writing and illustrating experience respectively, it's a solid book. Even when compared to some of the stellar titles being released by Marvel and DC, Supurbia can for the most part hold its own. What it lacks in polish and precision this book makes up for in pure energy, originality and passion. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Kelly Thompson Dec 17, 2012

    There's a decided audience for this book, and if you like your superheroes with plenty of soap and very little action, Randolph and Dauterman are delivering exactly that with a whole lot of enthusiasm. Read Full Review
