    The series just feels... disappointing so far. I'm usually patient with an attempt at something different, but so far J. Michael Straczynski's efforts here are just so-so. Read Full Review

    I have come to like Eddy Barrows' art. It is dynamic and he does terrific super-battle scenes. So not a bad issue. But just as it has built a little momentum, next issue is the Lois interlude. Unfortunately, 'Grounded' will be grounded for a month. Read Full Review

    Eddy Barrows' pencils are back in full force this time around. His high impact artwork brings the action sequences to life and diverse panel layouts do an excellent job of switching up the talking heads segments. I have no problem getting this book a few weeks late if it means Barrows draws every single page of it. Hopefully next month's break gives the artist enough time to put out more the same high caliber work. Read Full Review

    This is not a bad issue, and in spite of the characterization flaws noted above, the scene between Superman and Batman is very good and helps elevate the rest of the book. Still"nine issues left to go with this arc feels like quite a lot, and unless JMS can kick it up a notch, I'm going to have a hard time justifying the expenditure to keep up. Read Full Review

    Yeah, Superman walking around Main Street AS Superman is pretty dumb since he's inviting trouble, but where does it say that once you became a super-hero that was it, you could never live amongst regular citizens again?! Once again, UGH. I don't even feeling like spending any more time talking about this one, so let's just end things right here. Read Full Review

    The only reason to pick up this issue is to marvel at the ridiculousness of every single panel. At a price tag of $4, trust me, it's not worth it. Read Full Review

    Very good action when it comes. The art is the highlight. The story though is really beating our heads over with the same things. And don’t writers understand that Batman is of the people. He’s not a God.
