    Overall I thought this was one of the better recent issues of Superman. It did not have that choppy sloppy feeling other issues that dealt more with the ancillary characters in the title. And while I have never claimed to be a big Mon-El fan, this issue did a good job of showing just why Superman would ask him to protect Metropolis. I also think that Fernando Dagnino's art was one of his best efforts here as well. I think each issue of the Super-family he has done has been better than the last. In particular, I really liked his Parasite. Read Full Review

    Superman #693, while not quite living up to the greatness of other recent issues of the Superman Family of books, does at least get Mon-El back on his feet, and set the stage for his, hopefully, triumphant return to Metropolis next month. It should be a blast. Read Full Review

The problem is that it's stuck in a frustrating rhythm of plot advancement, and until it breaks that rhythm, don't expect to hear me start singing its praises anytime soon. Read Full Review
