    Man, I'm tired of all this arguing. Shall we cuddle up on the couch for some Venture Bros. action to settle ourselves down? Read Full Review

    Superman #677 was a well crafted issue. Robinson did a good job with his debut issue on Superman. This was a balanced issue that should have mass appeal. If you have not read this title in a while then I would certainly recommend giving Superman a try once again. I have a good feeling that Robinson is going to deliver consistently good reads on Superman. Read Full Review

    This first issue, like the most recent issue of "Action Comics" is seemingly tailored for the newer reader. A perfect jumping-on spot, readers will undoubtedly find this a Superman story worthy of the label, especially as this is the introductory chapter in the greater tapestry for the Man of Tomorrow.

    As a fan of Robinson and someone familiar with his style of storytelling, I'm confident his run will offer up far more than we see in this debut issue. As I said before, it's as if Robinson is slowly settling down for the long haul with this first outing rather than trying to dash out of the gates and grab our attention. That decision might not sit well with fans eager to see this title live up to Action Comics, but I'm fine with it. Renato Guedes seems like a solid fit on art, as his Superman is iconic, his villains menacing, and his action considerably dynamic. I'm excited to see what's to come from this pair. Read Full Review

    Hopefully, the creative team will get over these teething problems quickly and deliver a Superman run worthy of the character's status as the world's premier superhero. Read Full Review

    The art was good. So, I guess this wasn't all bad. But the actual story was terrible, error ridden and nearly puts Countdown to shame in some instances. Atlas comes off as a complete Kingdom Come Gog knock off with his new brand of killing justice and challenging of Superman, but I don't intend to stick around to find out if that ends up being true or not.
