    So overall, I thought this was a very good issue. The plot is interesting. The characterization is both classic and modern. And the art works very well. There isn't much more you can ask for in a comic. With Rebirth around the corner, I wouldn't mind Taylor writing this kind of Superman long term. Read Full Review

    Tom Taylor answered all my questions and concerns from last issue of Batman/Superman and gave fans one great issue filled with humor, mystery, tension and action. I had so much fun reading it and the art by Robson Rocha, Julio Ferreira and Blond made it a pleasure to look at as well. Highly Recommended. Read Full Review

    Batman/Superman #29 shines in all the right places. Writing and plot, art and action all come together for one of the best comics I've read and reviewed in quite some time. This one is all-around awesome, and well worth the attention of DC readers. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Feb 11, 2016

    Batman/Superman #29 is good fun with superb characterizationby Tom Taylor. Subtle comic relief breaks up the detective work at just the right moments, and without undermining the gravity of the situation or Batman's professionalism in handling it. An improved showing by Rocha and companyelevates this issue above the last one, giving Taylor's near-flawless script the near-flawless art that it deserves. Secrets are revealed, but there are enough questions left on the table to draw me into next month's issue#30. If you gave up on this title during Pak's run, or if you've otherwise left it alone, you owe it to yourself to grab this issue and the last: this truly is the Universe's Finest. Read Full Review

    ComiConverse - Kyle King Feb 11, 2016

    The Lost Kryptonian highlights the defining attributes of two characters who, not coincidentally, made their respective debuts in comics titled Action and Detective. Batman/Superman #29 would be a good story about these heroes in any era, and I am looking forward to the next issue for reasons beyond merely wanting to see the resolution of the cliffhanger ending.

    Newsarama - David Pepose Feb 11, 2016

    Every so often, DC Comics puts out a title that I feel I have to keep harping on, just to let everyone know that this is the real deal - this is a comic book you should not only be paying attention to, but that you should be emulating. And in the hands of Tom Taylor, Batman/Superman is that book - instead of trying to reinvent (or reboot) the wheel or to goose sales with crazy high-concepts, epic guest stars or A-list names attached, this book rests on characterization only. And let me tell you, I wish more books had the courage to do the same. Read Full Review
