    There are still a lot of things I hope get answered. What about Thao-La? Are the Phaelosians going to live on Warworld? Is Superman cured by the white sun? But those questions can be answered another day. For now, I'll just bask in this ending. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Aug 30, 2022

    This story took a lot of beats from Johnson's brilliant The Last God, but the last chapter reminds us that it is a Superman story through and through, with a stunning last few pages that make me hope he's writing Superman for a long time to come. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Ariel B. Aug 30, 2022

    A truly satisfying conclusion to one of the best Superman arcs in recent memory... made all the more intriguing for the roads that it opens going forward as for the roads closed by the last page. Superman: Warworld Apocalypse has me anticipating future developments and wondering what is in store for these characters, and what could become of Warworld from this point on. Read Full Review

    It didn't seem to be a popular decision with readers when it was announced, but Johnson's commitment to the concept won over most naysayers to create a well-respected and enjoyable arc. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Aug 30, 2022

    We've got a lot of artists on this book, but thankfully it doesn't hinder the overall final story of Superman Vs. Mongul. The only thing to really hinder it is a feeling of being rushed to the finish and while some obvious cracks in the storytelling show, the overall product was still enjoyable and I look forward to seeing where and when we continue on some of the future stories that were set up here.

  • 6.0 - Nicole Drum Aug 31, 2022

    The net result is a book that doesn't feel like it has the significance that it should while also feeling a bit rushed. Still, if you're a Superman fan, it leaves the reader with a lot of possibilities and that's a big win. Read Full Review
