    Batman Superman #11shows that Pak can still wright a cool Superman story, even though Superman isn't in this issue. It's was actually a lot better then what I was expecting in this comic. Less delays would be appreciated, but it's probably not going to happen anytime soon when Jae Lee is involved. I remain hopeful that we get that Earth 2 story in the next issue in June.

    And when a sick Krypto recovers and we learn how to cure Superman from his dog ... well remember you read it here first. I think Greg Pak has a nice handle on Superman. I am glad he is on the super-books. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner May 22, 2014

    Batman/Superman #11 is a good Doomed story that really pushes the event forward more than I expected. Regular fans of the book may be upset, but it got me more excited for Doomed.  Maybe I'm just a selfish bastard, but that's enough for me.  Batman/Superman fans not reading Doomed can skip this month, but It's essential to those following the event.

    Batman Superman #11 doesn't really feel like an issue within this series but it does act as a great chapter to the Doomed crossover event. Read Full Review

    "Batman/Superman" #11 is an absolute must buy if you're following the "Doomed" storyline, but it also has plenty to offer for any fan of Pak's Superman work. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin May 21, 2014

    Batman/Superman fits nicely into the Superman: Doomed crossover as though there's no Superman in this issue with the content feeling slightly hectic it was still an enjoyable read. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Despite seven line artists and a coloring studio taking art chores, this one flows well, with only Diana's face and body shape suffering a bit in the otherwise steady layouts. Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Cory Robinson May 24, 2014

    Batman/Superman #11 felt really rushed and unnecessary to the Superman:Doomed story arc. Oh yeah, and what ever happened to that Selina Kyle backstory that was supposed to be in this issue? Read Full Review

    The issue was underwhelming. I don't know if it's because I don't like Batman's voice or if the creators were less motivated than usual. Something just didn't click in this issue, and everything that happened in it could have easily been told in 10 pages. I still believe the Doomed event will be a good one overall. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Joel Raivid May 21, 2014

    This issue is an essential part of the story if you are reading Superman: Doomed – Infected and it cannot be missed, in what has been a pretty good storyline so far this has perhaps been my least favourite issue but Im sure this will only be the weakest issue for a week, when we have Superman #31 by Lobdell to look forward to next week!!

    Batman-News - Jesse Kennedy Jul 2, 2014

    It is another good chapter in theSuperman Doomedcrossover. It pushes the story along, threading important themes in Bruce's inner monologue. This issue does a great job of making us feel like the Doomsday virus is a threat as well as tugging on our emotional ties to Superman via our love for Bruce. Artwork is slightly disjointed but it only detracts from the story minimally. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Sam Kittrel May 21, 2014

    BATMAN/SUPERMAN #11 is like watching people who only read comics in the 90′s pitch a TV show featuring their favorite characters. This is a crossover book and almost nothing else – entirely meant to ferry along plot points introduced in the rest of the books it ties too. What I hate most of all about this book is that someone is going to actually have to read it if they want to know how Xa-Du is going to be important to this crossover, tying it into the ongoing narrative a lot closer than a book of this quality should have been. My recommendation to anyone that picks this issue up is to flip to the end of it where Xa-Du gloats about Doomsday and be done with it. Read Full Review
