    Big Comic Page - Dave MacPhail Jun 30, 2017

    Its great to see both Superman books being so well presented and really making the Man of Steel relevant again. An easy recommendation for those looking for a series that lives up to its name, as Action Comics is a great way to describe the story contained within these pages. Read Full Review

    Dan Jurgens and co are really nailing Superman and Action Comics is a steady stream of awesomeness and is what this character is all about. Jurgens brings these characters to life with all their flaws, strengths and emotions and this comic should definitely be on your radar! Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Jul 3, 2017

    I want to read the next part now! Add to this the mystery of Superman's blindness, the voice in the Fortress, and (I'm assuming) Superboy eventually joining the fray, and you have a great issue. Read Full Review

    I wish the story had been stronger, but the art is about as close to perfection as it gets. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Terrence Sage Jun 28, 2017

    Revenge as an arc has been building across the entire Superman Family of titles for months and it's about to burst in a way that's truly fitting for a comic called Action Comics. Breaking Superman down bad enough to need other literal “Super” heroes in his corner feels like reinforcing one of the things DC Rebirth is all about. Action Comics has also fared well in getting artists and colorists with the same style likeness that it doesn't make each continuing chapter of Revenge feel disjointed, Revenge is well on it's way to becoming a story to remember for the ages with both Superman Villains and Heroes clashing at the Fortress of Solitude.

    The Pop Break - Andrew Fontana Jul 1, 2017

    The pencils of Jack Herbert and Jos Luis blend seamlessly together. Their artwork is detailed, giving just enough believability to the facial expressions of the various characters that show up this issue. Their figures have a chiseled look that gives the entire issue a larger than life feel. Jurgens' script gives them some action to draw near the end, and their ability to draw multiple figures fighting is a good sign for the showdown scheduled the next two issues. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jun 28, 2017

    This issue takes too damn long to get started because it wastes half the book it felt on making sure that everyone was up to speed with what's been going on up till now and the story suffers for it.  Yeah, it picked up towards the end and gave us an awesome reveal of things to come, but by that point it felt like too little too late for me.  The art was great though and I'm still interested in this story, I just wish it would pick up the pace a bit because playing catch up every issue is killing me.

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Jun 28, 2017

    This is a solid issue with a promising lead in to what should be a mighty showdown between the Superman Revenge Squad and Superman's own Super-squad. While not overly remarkable, it is enjoyable as it presents a classic looking Man of Steel and we get a little bit below the surface of Superman's character. Read Full Review
