    Taylor and Henry have crafted a very strong arc for Jon Kent. With so many Super folks in Metropolis in Earth-Prime this almost feels like a better place and use for him especially since he's operating in a world so different from his own. Maybe if the book stays at this quality, DC might consider expanding it to an ongoing series? Read Full Review

    This is the best issue of this new series so far, and Taylor does an excellent job of ramping up the tension in this multiversal adventure. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford May 2, 2023

    Adventures of Superman: Jon Kent #3 delivers an emotional tale that challenges its protagonist to learn and grow. Where it leaves off promises a lot, and I cant wait to see what Taylor and company have planned going forward. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth May 12, 2023

    Adventures Of Superman: Jon Kent #3 is a fun comic to read. Some fans groan at Taylor combining Jon and Injustice, but for fans willing to give it a chance this is a killer story. Henry, Belleaire, and Abbott are the key to all of this, as their art takes a good script and makes it fantastic. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett May 3, 2023

    Adventures of Superman: Jon Kent #3 begins the upcoming conflict of idealism taking on the harsh absolutism of the world of Injustice. It should be interesting to see how Jon reacts in the next issue and you wonder if this event might be what breaks him a little in his journey onward. So far, it's nice to see Jon's general positive outlook in his journey and how that guides him here will be truly interesting. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke May 2, 2023

    You'll enjoy Adventures of Superman: Jon Kent #3 thanks to the interesting character work and the impossible odds Jon Kent is facing. Often in superhero comics, it's fairly easy to guess how things will play out, but with the stakes so high and Jon seemingly all alone, this Injustice crossover couldn't be more exciting.

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge May 17, 2023

    With a pretty good focus in the first two issues, things seem a bit more uncertain in the third installment here now that Ultraman is dead. What's Jon's purpose other than to see what a version of his father has created here? It's certainly educational on why he has to balance his involvement in the larger affairs of humanity but it feels like with Ultraman dealt with, the impetus for things has fallen apart and Jon is being sidetracked into something else. I'm curious to see where it goes because it riffs on my enjoyment of the Injustice universe and taps on the door in a different form here. I do like seeing the dynamics play out and Jon having to deal with a different Damian so there are areas to explore and a direction yet to be revealed. Read Full Review

    An interesting story is frustrated by the larger plot. The art continues to be great though. Read Full Review

    Lovely book. The pages are well designed out by Henry, pulling in and out of closeups and using negative space well. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez May 2, 2023

    Adventures of Superman: Jon Kent #3 marks the midway point of Taylor's final story for Jon Kent, and the plot is nowhere to be seen. Jon spends the issue listening, learning, and taking in the sights of the Injustice world, but at best, this issue is mostly conversations with great art. Read Full Review

  • 3.0 - Chase Magnett May 3, 2023

    Told with more wide open panels, familiar, MCU-style humor, and an embrace of superheroes as enforcers of the world as it is, Superman: Adventures of Jon Kent remains an utterly lifeless affair. Read Full Review
