    What's not to love about a superhero comic book that combines a Chinese legend with the Doomsday Virus to produce a 21st-century giant turtle man? Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj May 18, 2017

    I really feel like Yang and Tan are firing on all cylinders here giving us enough of the title character to make it feel like it is truly his book while also showing us the big world around him. The League, the origins, the Turtle Spirit, the big bad behind the scenes - it all shows a long form thought around this corner of the DCU. It all feels fresh. I do worry a bit about this book being lost among the other titles. I don't think it helps that DC puts out 4 super-books on the same day. Readers only have so much to spend week to week. Why not spread out Supergirl, Superwoman, and New Super-Man onto different weeks of the cycle? Read Full Review

    New Super-Man continues to impress and is one of DC Comics' best regular mainstream superhero reads. Read Full Review

    I have to say another strong issue by Yang as he also introduces some new elements and players. Like how he introduced Super-man Zero and it appears that Master I-ching has some nefarious role in the government, but we are not sure how much power he really has. This definitely stands to remain one of my favorite monthly DC books. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway May 10, 2017

    This issue brings the usual high-flying fun and unabashed Silver Age-style action, but it seems a little overly-packed with story. I know it might seem strange to complain about getting more rather than less, but I'm skeptical like that. Long-time readers of the series will get some cool payoff at the end, which is pretty much revealed on the cover. Read Full Review

    A brilliant read that will have you engrossed from start to finish. I always get so excited when I get a chance to talk about this book, because it's just so captivating and well laid out. It has action, mystery, and a good amount of humor. Yang does a marvelous job of bringing you into his world and showing that even heroes have flaws. Read Full Review
