“Endless Winter” chapter three! Superman finds himself at the center of an epic battle as the Frost King’s hordes of ice monsters come to life. Is this frozen onslaught too much for the Man of Steel, or can he stop it before it rampages across the chilling wasteland the world is becoming and reaches civilization? The answer to this question comes from an unlikely source close to Clark Kent’s earthly roots!

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Dec 8, 2020

    Superman: Endless Winter Special #1 is a warm, heartfelt issue that fantastically captures what the character and his stories should contain. It feels like you are reading a classic Superman cartoon, while still following this very modern crossover. The themes hit hardest after a terrifying year, but this would be a timeless story anyway.

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Dec 11, 2020

    I don't mind these one off looks at who Superman is. I know who he is. But as they say, every comic is someone's first comic. And this is fine primer on how Superman looks at the world. It also is a nice way of showing how the world looks at him. This isn't ground breaking. But it is entertaining. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Dec 8, 2020

    All of the artists bring their unique styles to the story and the issue has a well done visual look. I liked a lot of the visual moments throughout, but the flashback had the most engaging imagery. Read Full Review

    A flashback and aside to Gotham City may serve the larger event, but don't provide any notable connection to the Man of Steel's quest to care for his adopted family and world making this an inessential entry. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Dec 8, 2020

    The Endless Winter story continues to be lackluster in my mind, while the original setup of what went down in 10 AD is the star of the show but sadly, we're not getting enough of anything here to keep me happy and on top of that, I wasn't a fan of the art this issue. I really hope as these chapters continue that we'll be getting more for our present-day heroes to do because smashing ice monsters left and right isn't keeping me interested. Read Full Review
