    Weird Science - Jim Werner Dec 2, 2015

    This is a good issue that may not have the fun of the last couple of Action Comics issues, but does a lot to push the story forward giving us a Wrath origin story and a real solid glimpse at Vandal Savage's plan.  The art was okay, but i can still recommend this issue to anyone still sticking with Superman through the Truth and beyond.

    Action Comics #47 gives you that exactly what's in the title"action. Each page keeps your eyes moving and Kuder and Jeanty's attention to detail is amazing. I'm one of those people that notice the small stuff on a page and Kuder and Jeanty take note of that. Everything from the strain of Clark's muscles while fighting, to seeing him sweat from his brow while wrestling Frankenstein is done flawlessly. We also get a particular treat in the end when we find out that Wrath isn't the mastermind Clark thought she was. An enemy of Superman's and the Justice League has been pulling the strings the entire time"and by the time you see who it is you'll never even suspect it. I know I didn't at all and I love it. Nothing wrong with a good surprise especially on the holidays"and Action Comics #47 gives you just that. Read Full Review

    This book's so-so issues are made even more frustrating than an average series because of its frequent brushes with greatness. Read Full Review

    One more issue in this depowered run is in the books. We have a Superman embrace anger and try to use evil for good. In some ways it is similar to Wrath's idea, trying to have the ends justify the means. It doesn't work for me. Still, we have put Wrath behind us. And for that I am glad. Plus, Jeanty brings a nice style to the issue. Read Full Review

    Though rushed and forced in places, Greg Pak's latest effort possessed depth, moved the story forward, and led Superman upward. Read Full Review

    If this story does enchant you, you can follow it toSuperman Annual#3. I really hope that Greg Pak will soon recapture the glory of his earlier issues ofAction Comics. I hate to say it, but that "special something" just isn't here. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Dec 2, 2015

    An attempt is made to deliver an interesting story but it falls flat due to a lack of solid action and a poor wrap up. Wrath's backstory is interesting though and the art carries the emotional resonance well. Read Full Review
