“Warworld Rising,” part three! As the Superman family fights to keep the mysterious refugees alive, they find shocking answers about their lost colony. Meanwhile, Atlantis faces destruction by a host of supernaturally powerful sea kaiju, apparently created by the newfound “Warworld fragment”! As other world governments come to understand the devastating power Atlantis now possesses, tensions rise, and the threat of global war looms closer. As this goes on, back in Metropolis, the time-flung version of Midnighter digs deeper into Trojan’s dirty scheme.

    On Comics Ground - Timothy Quail Aug 3, 2021

    Philip Kennedy Johnson creates one of the best issues of Action Comics in a long time. There are three interesting plotlines here, and each one could be their own entire arc. Somehow the team here weaves them all together in a fast paced and excited book. Read Full Review

    Meanwhile, Midnighter begins to draw close to the end of his adventure... just in time for a new player to arrive on the proverbial field. I'm looking forward to seeing how this all comes together next month and in the Midnighter annual! Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jun 22, 2021

    Action Comics continues to be high-quality comics, and it shows from the art to the intriguing story and character work. This is a triple-A title right now, which hasn't always been the case, so it's a great time to be a Superman fan. Read Full Review

    Daniel Sampere's art is perfect for the widescreen action of this storyline as well, and I can't wait to see what twists it throws at us next. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Jun 22, 2021

    Phillip Kennedy Johnson seems to have his writing on firm footing with Action Comics #1032. As long as Johnson stays on this track, he will provide readers a really great run on the Man of Steel. A focus on character create a truly engaging experience for the entire book. Additionally, fantastic art accompanies both the Superman and Midnighter stories making Action Comics an exciting and clever read. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jun 22, 2021

    This Warworld Rising arc keeps taking surprising directions as Johnson and Sampere are disinterested in cranking out an overdone Superman/Mongul clash. Read Full Review

    With all these moving parts, Action Comics #1032 could be a real mess, but Phillip Kennedy Johnson makes it work and work beautifully by keeping they story centered around good characterization, particularly when it comes to Superman and to a slightly lesser extent, Lois Lane. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Jun 30, 2021

    Action Comics #1032 is such a fun Superman comic. Johnson and Sampere deliver a straightforward narrative that sets things up for the future but does a great job entertaining in the present tense. The backup story is really ramping up nicely, with Cloonan, Conrad, and Oemings story starting to branch out and really get some legs. Action Comics continues its streak of good stories since Johnson and company have taken over. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jun 22, 2021

    While a lot of the Action Comics element to this story feels like it's stacking mystery upon mystery, I do feel that it is intriguing enough to keep me interested, while also giving me great art on top of it. So while that's a plus, the Midnighter backup, while probably the best so far, isn't something that feels like it belongs here and I don't think I'll ever be a fan of the art style that goes with it.
