    I know I have basically ignored reviewing the Captain Atom second feature in this book. The short version is Captain Atom battles Mirabai and it looks like he has won. Cafu's art is stunning. Read Full Review

    Even though this has jack all to do with Last Stand of New Krypton, Action Comics remains an entertaining well-rounded comic book. Even the Captain Atom back-up has nice fantasy art. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - SoldierHawk Apr 15, 2010

    For what it is, this book is a decent read. The mythology of Krypton and the way it plays out is very interesting, but the main physical plot and conflict fall rather flat. Still, especially with how this one ended I think the arc is really at a tipping point. The next issue will either make or break it. I'm hoping for the best. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Zack Freeman Apr 15, 2010

    It's both a positive and negative statement about a title when its back-up feature is better than its main feature. While the story about Nightwing, Flamebird, the JSA and Rao was honestly rather dull, the Captain Atom was really well done. I'd really prefer to read a Captain Atom solo title by Robinson and Cafu instead of this. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Apr 19, 2010

    Action Comics #888 is well-drawn but hard to understand, earning 2 out of 5 stars overall. Both Greg Rucka and James Robinson are writers that I admire, and I hope that Ill be able to be more charitable with their next works Read Full Review
