    If you were ready to drop this book so quickly, you might want to give yourself more time to decide. If Robinson can improve this much in a single issue, I'm eager to see where this book will be in another few months. Read Full Review

    It's hard to imagine myself buying two Superman books on a monthly basis but it's finally happened. I can't wait to see Atlas and Supes duke it out for real next month. This may just be his most formidable foe (on a physical level) since Doomsday. Please make this epic and give us more Krypto! Read Full Review

    With James Robinson doing some great character work on Superman's supporting cast, and Renato Guedes drawing the hell out of it all, Superman has once again become a can't miss title. I look forward to more of the Superman/Atlas juxtaposition in future issues as well as the inevitable Daily Planet sequence in Superman to see if Clark matches up with the version of himself over in Action, to see if Johns and Robinson truly are on the same page and building a cohesive Superman universe.

    The art is expansive and emotional but in many panels, the human figures have a kind of sheen that makes it look like they were made of plastic. Atlas particularly looks like his broad chest is plastic-enhanced. A newcomer to the book might even suspect the character was an android with the way his skin looks. Read Full Review

    So far, I'm not impressed with Robinson on "Superman." Things can easily change, and hopefully the book will kick into high gear shortly. Right now, though, I'm cringing, and wishing that Busiek was still on board. Better luck next month? Read Full Review
