    This title continues to maintain a high quality for me. It is always entertaining and definitely has the right mix of teenage humor, coming of age heroics, action, and mystery. Read Full Review

    This is a fun issue and I highly recommend it. You might be a bit lost if you're jumping on so I recommend reading this first part of this storyline, which is the previous issue. Read it and get the word out, speak with your money! Read Full Review

    Let's get this Suicide Squad cameo over and get back to the characters that matter. The characters that make New Super-Man unique amongst the regular superhero titles on the monthly racks. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Aug 9, 2017

    The assault on Shanghai continues, and so does the heroism of the Justice League of China. There's some nice developments with Baixi and Deilan, and some good heroes-punching action. This issue is jam-packed with stuff, I can barely write about it without giving everything away! So stop looking at this and go buy the danged thing! Read Full Review

    It's obvious that this is by far one of my favorite books coming out of DC. Considering that, I'll be honest and say that this issue didn't get me as excited as previous books. It was still fun and full of gorgeous art, and I recommend it to everyone. The ending teases to a fantastic cross over coming our way. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Aug 9, 2017

    New Super-Man has been one of the most underrated titles for DC Rebirth, standing very much on its own. Unfortunately, Suicide Squad's involvement hurt more than helped, averting our attention from the plot threads that were more interesting. Read Full Review

    A half angsty angry teen boy drama and half homage to well known moments and tropes surrounding the Justice League. Read Full Review
