    I remember reading sometime ago that Johns and Co. at DC Comics wanted to do for Superman what they did for Hal Jordan a few years back with these storylines. They are succeeding grandly. Never has it been a better time to be a fan of Superman comics in the last 15 years or so. Read Full Review

    Crossover is increasingly becoming a dirty word in the industry, but it doesn't have to be. So far "Codename: Patriot" is a strong example of how to do these stories properly. Read Full Review

    Overall, Action Comics #880 is an unbalanced piece. Should you come only looking for the “Codename Patriot” portions, you’ll be treated to some wonderful Superman moments. As for Captain Atom, the book is passable right now and hopefully things will improve over the coming months. I’m sure the inclusion in Action Comics is intentional and I wonder what role the Captain may play in Metropolis in the near future. Hopefully it’s something more enjoyable than his trip through the past. Read Full Review

    "Codename: Patriot" is half over with this installment, but there seems to be a lot going on in this story "- almost too much. I look forward to seeing how Robinson and Rucka draw all of these divergent paths closer together towards resolution in the next two installments of this storyline. Read Full Review
