    All in all Batman Superman #22 is on the right track in telling a new Batman Superman team up story. No one seems out of character in this comic and the continuity shown in this comic doesn't confuse readers. Read Full Review

    Batman/Superman #22 is easily one of the best entries in the series to date, taking Truth to a whole new level. Giving a tense confrontation between the two titular characters, the creative team highlight the change in the status quo perfectly. They also leave some intriguing points open, having this fan excited for the next issue. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Jul 8, 2015

    As a continuation of the Truth and Justice story arcs for the new Superman, this is perhaps the best issue yet, although it still leaves a lot of room for improvement. At the same time, the Jim Gordon Batman is still a little out-of-sorts here as elsewhere, with his first reaction to any superhero is to try to arrest them, a characteristic which would not have been true with either Batman or Jim Gordon, yet is supposed to be different here for some reason. Thus while there are signs of improvement, there are also still flaws here, and it remains to be seen if the story will reach where it needs to be for this to work before the fans start grumbling for the return of their heroes how they like them.

    Batman-News - Terry Miles, Jr. Jul 11, 2015

    Overall:I've enjoyedTRUTHso far, but this one was probably my least favorite of the story. It's not a bad issue at all, I just imagined Batman and Superman's meeting to be more entertaining. I'm definitely biased though because currently I'm really only interested in Superman. I did enjoy Superman's hard edge and his snarky attitude towards Gordon's Batman. The buddy cop formula works well enough to carry my interest to the next issue, especially with a depowered Superman throwing himself in harm's way. The revelation of a secret organization being involved ups the ante, so it'll be nice to learn more about them. Hopefully the two heroes learn to trust one another before all subterranean hell breaks loose. Read Full Review

    Greg Pak has done an amazing job writing the Batman/Superman dynamic with Bruce Wayne under the cowl, but it just feels off with Gordon. Read Full Review

    But between the odd extremes in this issue and the different tones of all the titles, I feel like I am on unstable ground as a reader. And, like I said in a recent review, I just want to read  a good Superman story. And I don't think we are there. At least not yet. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - TBU Contributor Jul 8, 2015

    So…okay. Greg Pak has done an amazing job on this title up until now. I went with whatever he was trying to spin in the last issue because it literally was a shell shock for both characters not knowing who they could trust and apparently a Superman unmasked now of course means a Superman UNWANTED and a Superman suspected. But I don't get it. Is he trying to make it as if the only team that could possibly work together is Bruce and Clark? If so, I get it then. But it's unneeded. Batman and Superman should always be friends no matter who is under the cowl. That is until they have a good enough reason not to be. I guess there has to be tension and nonsense in this book somewhere because without it there isn't any at all. Also Bat-Don being incredibly trigger happy and stab happy is just weird. Bat-Don STABBED an under dweller. Now tell me that's not weird. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jul 8, 2015

    Add this issue to the multiple reasons why I haven't enjoyed the Truth story so far.  Jim Gordon may be Batman, but he's also a huge ass that made me want to jump into the book and choke him out.  The art felt off and the story went off in a direction that takes it further from the other Truth stories and just felt silly.  In other words, I hated this issue.
