    Adventures of Superman – Jon Kent #5 is a fantastic read, and I think the events of this series will shape the Jon Kent we see in the future. If you were to spend money on just one comic this week, I think you've found it. Read Full Review

    This dynamic of Jon Kent on another world has worked so much better than the last time he faced a morally-challenged Superman and this creative team has sold the idea that this multiverse series might be the best use for Jon going forward. Here, he can exist outside of the rest of the Super Family and be unique as a paragon of virtue helping to inspire Batman's forces and making Injustice Superman question his stances.

    There is one element of Adventures of Superman: Jon Kent #5 that is somewhat confusing, and it's the ease of reading. Somehow, it can be an easy thing to breeze through the issue without even realizing that any time is passing at all. It's an easy read that rewards patience and careful attention. It offers insightful questions, and it doesn't spell out the answers. Instead, it leaves it to the readers to decide. What more can you ask for in a comic? Read Full Review

    I wasn't sure what to expect going into this series but that it became an Injustice project just makes me laugh and laugh. I love those books and playing in this world, even a different version of it, makes me smile because of the things it can do. Jon's doing well in handling all of this and trying to find the right way to help things but only after he listens and works to understand what's happened here. It's not just fights and misunderstandings but rather an exploration to figure out the why of it and how to help change the course. Taylor's script works some fun little bits here and there and the nods to the original are wonderful to have. Henry's always been a great artist and projects like this with sprawling casts definitely work in their favor, so it's a fun and dynamic book as we get some executions set up for the next installment. We'll be there for that. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Jul 5, 2023

    Adventures of Superman: Jon Kent #5 turns the momentum meter up a half-notch for a penultimate issue that delivers lots of talking and hand-wringing but no excitement or dramatic tension. Clayton Henry is doing his best to make a bland script seem visually interesting, but this comic is a forgettable miss. Read Full Review

    Why delay  ... unless ... the story needs the delay despite how nonsensical it is. Maybe this will all wrap up nicely. Maybe. And maybe I will change my opinion on this story.But given how this book has rolled out, I think I will be disappointed.  Read Full Review
