    I think Siqueira's art shines here because it is both beautiful, but with a layer of grime which works in these battle scenes. The biggest question now? Can this storyline be wrapped up in a satisfying manner in just 20 pages of Superman to go. Read Full Review

    Krypton Returns Pt. 3 does nothing to further the story along.  With one more issue left of this arc, it feels like it will be a  mad dash to the finish, and we'll all be left disappointed.  But that's for another review.  This is a great continuation to the action that we saw in the last issue, but didn't give us enough to be blown away.  Read Full Review

    Statues And Superheroes - Steven Viscido Nov 20, 2013

    Overall, this is another weak issue full of plot contrivances, melodrama, and generally bad writing.  H'el is as annoying as ever, although Kara's not quite as irritating as she had been previously -- probably because Nelson didn't write much of the story.  Additionally, because there are four or five different threads going on and each one only gets a few pages, hardly anything happens to actually advance the plot very much.  The result is one of the weakest issues of Supergirl to date, although it's probably not quite as bad as issue 24, which remains the worst in the entire series.

    Krypton Returns is nearing its end, but unfortunately its not hitting the high concept that Scott Lobdell is trying to convey. Though seeing the House of El come together again is interesting and entertaining, the hurried application of the source material makes the arc feel more sloppy than memorable. There is one issue left in the arc to win readers over and, hopefully, it will deliver. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Brian Bannen Nov 25, 2013

    This was a difficult read for a variety of reasons, but mostly it never settles on a narrative center. I get that Lobdell, Nelson and Jordan have a lot of story to tell, but they don't need to pack it all into one issue. This only hurts their intent, and as much as they leave the reader with a cliff hanger, I don't think many people will be interested to find out the end result if they have to wade through this kind of convolution again.
