    Johns and Donner have managed to finally get Action Comics back on track, free from scheduling woes and artist delays. Thanks to that, the comic is full of wonderful new ideas and some great revitalizations of old ones. The writers have proved not only why Superman matters, but that he can have fun comics.

    Although I loved seeing Eric Powell's Max Fleischer-esque Superman and his unique twisted take on DC's greatest icons, in general, I'd call this three-part arc a bit underwhelming. I hope we haven't seen the last of Powell on a mainstream superhero book, but I certainly hope we don't have to see another Bizarro story for some time. Read Full Review

    In the long term, "Escape From Bizarro World" will be seen as the placeholder between "Last Son" and "Superman & The Legion Of Superheroes," and rightly so.
