But it may be too late for Mongul to salvage his empire before an ancient prophecy is fulfilled.

    I just think this whole issue seeing Midnighter operate while hearing about Superman's good deeds and legends is just great stuff to chew over. And OMAC turning? I have to figure somewhere in the future is an issue titled "OMAC's story" just like this is called "Midnighter's Tale". We'll learn how OMAC changed, I'm sure. Read Full Review

    Action Comics has thrived under Johnson's direction even with this trip to Warworld that seemed an odd fit for Superman. As usual, this is one of DC's top tier titles each month and shouldn't be missed. Read Full Review

    Action Comics never fails to deliver these days, and this is no exception. I love seeing Midnighters journey it helps that Im a big fan of the character and theres a significant plot turn toward the end of the lead story that tells me things are about to get even more interesting. Top to bottom, a fantastic issue. Read Full Review

    This may not have had the punch of some of the past issues, but I think it's essential to get us where we need to be. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Mar 24, 2022

    Action Comics #1041 continues to deliver. This is low-key one of the best superhero books on the market, with both creative teams really nailing their stories. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - StoryBabbler Mar 23, 2022

    Action Comics #1041 has things shift from Superman to Midnighter's side of things. We see Midnighter doing his thing, swearing, busting skulls and taking names while freeing slaves on Warworld his way for his reasons. The abrupt change in artist was definitely a surprise, but Dale Eaglesham and Will Conrad still do a good job on the comic's artwork. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Mar 22, 2022

    While this issue of Action Comics is still enjoyable it seems that the main story and the backup have found a lull point in their story where the progression slows down a bit and sadly, the way that we do this in the main Action Comics story is show a Midnighter montage that doesn't do his story enough justice in my mind and while the main story's art is alright, that too seems to be a down a bit. Still love this story and the Martian Manhunter backup but this issue was a little down for me. Read Full Review

    Perhaps this is all just the calm before one bonkers storm of an ending, but as a single issue goes, it's just okay. Read Full Review
