    But Why Tho? - William J. Jackson Jan 17, 2023

    Lazarus Planet Assault On Krypton #1 is a promising follow-up to the Alpha book, and hopefully, these changes within will last for the year at least. Read Full Review

    Overall, there isn't a single miss in this issue, but I wonder how and when many of these threads will be followed up on. Read Full Review

    These are all decent stories setting up the next chapter in all these characters. There isn't a clunker in them. I wouldn't put it on par with the Alpha issue. But it is pretty good. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Theron Couch Jan 18, 2023

    Lazarus Planet: Assault on Krypton is unfortunately a very middle of the road issue. And the fact that Jons and Power Girls stories end with a to be continued for series after Lazarus Planet somewhat undermines the idea that these will have a significant impact on the larger event. Ultimately the stories are a mixed bag with weak narratives, but they do benefit from strong art that uplifts the issue overall. Read Full Review

    If you're fully invested in the Lazarus Planet event and looking for more background stories, Lazarus Planet: Assault on Krypton #1 is the perfect fix. The artwork is great, and the characters they focus on are interesting and the ways their powers are changing/manifesting will probably prove to be important in the coming issues. Read Full Review

    We've all been aware for a while that the Superman titles (Action Comics, Superman, and Adventures of Superman) were heading for a massive overhaul. Lazarus Planet: Assault on Krypton introduces you to a few of those new concepts, telling some stylish stories within the confines of the Lazarus Planet event while giving context to some of DC's upcoming Super-Stories. This book's a definite must-buy! Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Jan 17, 2023

    Dreamer searches for Doctor Fates helmet, Jon Kent gets his new comic pushed, Mercys tech is upgraded, and Power Girl gains telepathy. Readers, the cast of characters doesnt really entice nor does the dynamic of Lazarus Planet: Assault on Krypton #1 have anything to do with Krypton or an assault. The Superman cover is disingenuous, the volcano cover is deceptive, and the main cover involving Jon Kent is equally as misleading. Ultimately, fans get a title about related Kryptonian-ish individuals during the Lazarus Planet event. There is really no need to buy this issue nor is it required reading for Lazarus Planet. And frankly, it makes me concerned for the rest of the Lazarus Planet titles. Read Full Review
