    New Super-Man #16 is a fantastic issue which explores the inherent racism that was in comics for a long time as well as showing the differences in ideology between Western and Chinese philosophy and politics. Yang and Peeples have done a fantastic job with this issue! Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Amy Ziegfeld Oct 11, 2017

    New Super-Man remains one of the most interesting superhero comics being published today, a fascinating take on heroism the likes of which we haven't really seen before. Every issue is a delight, and this one is no different. Read Full Review

    A trip to Chinatown in 1937 reveals a new path for Kenan, which does not, as yet, have anything to do with Chop Suey. There's intrigue, surprises, great character moments, and--why not?--a giant robot. This could be the issue you finally hop on board and start reading New Super-Man! Though frankly I suggest you start at the beginning because you're going to want to read the earliest issues anyway. Read Full Review

    I don't know how much longer we'll have this book. But I am loving it. And this arc, confronting All Yang as well as comic history, feels like a nice coda. We'll see. Hope everyone sings the books praises. It is a very good book. Read Full Review
