    And the art is just solid all around. Crisp, detailed, expressive. This book is sizzling right now, my favorite book from DC right now. Thank you Greg Pak and Aaron Kuder for getting Superman right! Read Full Review

    And more and more, Aaron Kuder emerges as just the right artist to bring that eclectic blending to life. His work is expressive and dynamic, focusing less on big muscles and pretty faces and more on unique creature designs, quirky facial expressions, and awesome displays of Superman's might. I can't wait to see what these creators have in store for Superman as this run continues to unfold. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Guilherme Jacobs Mar 6, 2014

    It's no secret that Superman has struggled since the New 52, but that Greg Pak and Aaron Kuder changed that for good. Action Comics has it all, the over the top crazy action against unbelievable creatures, the fun moments, and the most important aspect of all, a true Superman story, in which the character represents the heroic and hopeful side of us all.

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Mar 5, 2014

    Action Comics #28 ties everything together that Greg Pak has thrown at readers since he took over the book.  Pak and Kuder's run has been really good so far, but this is my favorite issue so far and nails them down as my favorite team on Action Comics in the New 52 so far.  I hope it lasts a long time.

    All in all this was a great comic to have. Even though this comic has a sadder ending it leads to something more in future issues to come. If you reads this and like what you see I suggest buying the last few issues to get the full story on what's going on. But you'll still have an enjoyable read if you don't have the other issues. It leaves you wanting more which I think that's the best kind of comic leaving the readers wanting more. Read Full Review

    Clark and Lana couldn't be more different, but they share a heart of gold, and you can feel their warmth and sorrow in Action Comics #29. It's good to have a Superman book that makes you feel things again. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Mar 10, 2014

    "Action Comics" #29 is a good comic with a solid Superman story that presents Superman as a hero of the underdog and someone for us underdogs to look up to. I'm eager for more from this team, especially if they're going to continue to contribute positive, fun stories to the legacy of the Man of Steel. Pak and Kuder make Superman a character I can cheer for and sympathize with once again. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Milo Milton Jefferies Mar 5, 2014

    The only real problem with Action Comics #29 is its cover, which is a far cry from the quality interior artwork and could have been a whole lot better which is a real shame. However, thats pretty much it with the flaws Action Comics is very much the best Superman book on shelves right now, with a great characterization of the Man of Steel that will appeal to both new fans who were converted with the New 52 and Man of Steel and fans from before the reboot. Its a series is consistently great and itll be very interesting to see where Pak and Kuder take Clark Kent from here. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Daren Taveras Mar 6, 2014

    Action Comics #29 expands on a strong story that has refrained from stuttering. With the introduction of a larger entity at work, an emotional and unfamiliar Superman stands to face off against the foe. Hopefully Clark will be able to find himself and once again and become the symbol of hope that readers look forward to seeing every month. Read Full Review
