"Reign of Doomsday" marches on! A deadly new foe has risen following the events of ACTION COMICS #900 and he represents Superman's worst fears personified. Even with Steel, Superboy, Supergirl and the Eradicator by his side, Superman is still in for the fight of his life and considering his life, you know that's gotta be some fight!

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Jun 24, 2011

    So there was plenty to like about this issue. The characterization of Superman and the super-family was spot on and Supergirl was given some nice moments. The Lois moments throughout were done right, both believing in her partner and then coyly winking when he returned. Doomslayer as a possible alternate universe Doomsday (somehow there is more to him than just that ... I keep thinking that it is just a body with someone else's persona in it). And there is Kenneth Rocafort's electric art! Those things were enough to let me brush some of the odder plot turns under the rug. The sad thing is that Cornell seems to have a great handle on both Superman and Team Superman. And he only has two more issues on these characters. The saddest are these ... 'what might have been'.

    If nothing else, its great to see these four characters in action together, something that hasnt happened in a long time and may not happen again for another very long time (since weve heard nothing about Steels place in the new DC Universe). Ill enjoy it while it lasts. Read Full Review

    I'd love to see Cornell recover from his missteps and pull off this story in the concluding chapters, but it doesn't seem likely at this point. Read Full Review

    This latest arc in Action Comics just feels like DC is spinning their wheels with this series before the big relaunch initiative. Thankfully, that's only a few months away, meaning Action Comics will hopefully once again return to a place of prominence. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Jun 26, 2011

    My jaw is to the floor"not in a good way. It's just appalling how this title, in the same hands that brought it such terrific storytelling for over a year, has suddenly turned almost hackish. I can't bring myself to take any more of this; consider this Dropped. Read Full Review
