    Outer Realm Comics - thefrozenreptile Jul 29, 2012

    A solid book, especially for those like myself who like a little of everything (although I always love a little more story background to books and less emphasis on action sequences; one of the things I liked about Swan's art was that he would use three panels where other artists might use five.) Superman (as a series) is one of the new 52's most consistent titles. I admit I am looking forward as to how the Zero issue for this one ties in with the Zero for Action. If this is the first Superman book you buy, it stands out as a better one. Read Full Review

    Superman #11ends with him beaten and at the mercy of the creature from another dimension. An editor's note follows the standard tagline, Continued in the next issue of Superman! The note reads: “Provided we still have one!” Let's hope #12 is worth the wait. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Jul 29, 2012

    The cover promises something every reader of the New 52 should be attracted to, and thus serves as a great jumping on point for the Superman series. It's too bad the secret isn't fully revealed - thanks to the Vince McMahon swerve comics are notorious for. Mr. Jurgens story delivers a lot of action, and I can't help but be reminded that Superman is at his best when dealing with aliens from another planet. The art, on the other hand still leaves something to be desired from a visual consistency standpoint, so the issue gets dinged for that. I'm sure the upcoming zero issues are meant to be the jumping on point for the series, but Superman #11 serves that role nicely, and is worth picking up for new readers. Overall a better than average issue, earning Superman #11 3 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Jul 25, 2012

    I know that comic companies will put nearly anything on a cover to get people to buy it, but the words "Secret of the Suit Revealed!" seemed too straightforward to be a bait-and-switch. Yet it was. The only thing revealed about the suit are some errors by the art team. Superman activates the suit and it materializes over his clothes, but a shot of his leg shows bare skin. Where did his pants go? Before the transformation he reveals a white tee with the S emblem on it. Why risk someone seeing that undershirt when the suit already generates the entire costume? During the end fight, a coloring mishap has the damage done to the suit change from panel to panel. What is "revealed" by all of this? I'm not sure, but it's more than enough to drag down the quality on a book that has enough going against it already. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Jul 31, 2012

    And so we end on a cliffhanger, Superman unconscious (I guess the suit reverts to its basline white without biorhythm input). So outside of a nice Lois moment, this felt pretty much like filler. Nothing special, nothing terrible. And so there is only one more issue in the 'Jurgens Era' of Superman in the DCnU. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Andy Frisk Jul 27, 2012

    Loyal Superman fans have weathered tough times where our favorite superhero has been poorly presented (remember Superman IV?). All we can hope for is that Man of Steel is as good as it's teaser trailer hints it might be and that the comics follow suit...eventually. Read Full Review
