    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Jul 15, 2024

    I am interested to see where this goes. So overall, a very solid issue opening up this new arc. I love the plot, the pace, the art, the subject of both stories. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jul 10, 2024

    The wonky timeline aside, this is a brilliant story that perfectly captures how Superman fights and what he fights for. Its big, occasionally funny and goofy, but with a great heroic core and high stakes. Read Full Review

    The Aspiring Kryptonian - David Beasley Jul 10, 2024

    For a first chapter story, you couldn't ask for much better. Instant set up and execution, cliffhanger twist ending, superb art, and a great jumping on point for new and/or returning readers. This easily has the makings of being something special as it's already a lot of fun. Read Full Review

    Nerd Initiative - Ken M. Jul 10, 2024

    Taking the Man Of Tomorrow back in time proves to be a winning play for Superman fans. Simone brings out the best of Clark Kent with fantastic storytelling. Barrows, Miki, Lokus and Sharpe elevate the high stakes to new levels with epic imagery. This story doesnt miss bringing back the superhero themes we all know and love. Dont miss it.

    AIPT - David Brooke Jul 10, 2024

    The main story calls back to an earlier time for Superman and Lois, while the backup pushes the relationship of an editor and its writer to new lengths in the roles of Clark and Lois. Combined, Action Comics #1067 has the stakes and the heart that make Superman comics great. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jul 10, 2024

    Action Comics #1067 is a fun comic. You don't need to be familiar with all that's going on with Superman and can just dive in and enjoy it. Both stories, while wildly different, have a lot that stands out for each and both entertain in different ways. It's a nice arc for each so far with two voices that bring something different and fun to the classic characters. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Jul 10, 2024

    Lacking context, Simone's story is a little unsettling. One one hand, it's great to have Bronze Age/ throwback tale with influences from different iterations of Superman, but perhaps more will be explained. As a throwback tale it's a ton of fun and very enjoyable. Rowell's story takes a more serious approach that is a nice contrast to the fun in the main story. Read Full Review

    The art feels a little rough in places, but that doesn't take away from much. Overall, a decent issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Christian Laspada Jul 10, 2024

    This new arc feels like filler and is a letdown coming off of the House of Brainiac event. Detached writing mixed with gritty artwork makes this a three-part arc Im fine with skipping. Read Full Review

    The first story was similar to Superman vs. Muhammad Ali, and it was great. The second story -- Lois made a perfectly logical decision. I enjoyed both, it felt very Bronze Age, like World's Finest.

    Fun kickoff to a new storyline, plus a promising backup story too!

    The main story is a charming little love letter to the Bronze Age Superman comics Simone grew up reading, let down a bit by Barrows's art which doesn't sell big moments like Superman eating the raygun and gives everybody a psychotic grin. The backup is Rowell doing the intimate character work she does best, approaching the interesting collision between Lois's commitment to journalistic ethics and the fact that she knows her husband is a walking conflict of interest.

    This isn't anything essential, but it's a nicely balanced package offering something for everyone — if you want action, the main story has it for you; if like me you're more interested character drama, the backup delivers.

    pretty interesting start, although Lois is starting to act weird in the back up story

    Solid book for what it was, but what it was wasn't something I enjoy. I had been picking up Superman books for the Braniac story, mostly because of the inclusion of Lobo and the Czarnians, but it looks like I'll be dropping them back off my pull list now.

    ANNNNNND the series comes to a screeching halt and implodes. This issue is a complete mess. What the hell was DC thinking? Oh I know...
