    This comic manages to accomplish everything a well written monthly book is supposed to do: entertain the reader while at the same time using all the strengths of a visual medium to say something meaningful about our world without falling into the usual trappings of cliched narratives. Kudos to the creative team for a strong effort. Read Full Review

    While the idea and concept of this issue may not be for everyone, it provides an interesting look into how some people look at Superman, how it affects him and makes him realize that he may be Kryptonian in genetic make-up, but he is human at heart. While this issue may not be perfect, it stands out as the most touching and beautiful book of the week, thus making it my Pick of the Week. Read Full Review

    The mixed message doesn't inform the reader nor open the subject up to debate. It doesn't even mete out the consequences of a world without a Superman. When Superman's not around bad things happen, but this woman survives with what is essentially a fictional flesh wound. Instead, the authors by trying to satisfy both camps and be politically correct engender a weak ending to a forgettable story that lacks thoughtfulness or punch. Read Full Review
