    Superman #26 is an enjoyable mix of character drama and action that might only seem pedestrian because of the big stakes and bigger names working in other Superman titles. Read Full Review

    But it also once again showed me just how awkward the Diana/Clark romance reads. It just never sounds natural or right. And it seems to make the characters seem lesser than what they should be. Wonder Woman is just not right here. And even the slightest mention of Krypton Returns would have been appreciated, some reminder that this story happened, mattered, and effected Superman in some way. Read Full Review

    The beginning of this arc has been enjoyable. Lobdell is playing with a lot of fun elements that can hopefully work out and turn into a really good story. Lashleys art is a good compliment to the story and should improve as he gets more comfortable drawing the characters. This has a chance to be one of the better Superman stories in the New 52.

    The issue takes its time to get the plot going for the next story arc but the last bit of this issue was worth the wait, and even the slower parts of the issue were entertaining because they gave us a glimpse of Clark's personal life. While this issue wasn't very eventful the ending does point to much more action in the next issue so stay tuned. Read Full Review

    Superman #26 is an average issue with some good moments and one that made me want to punch myself in the face.  It would have been nice for Lobdell to acknowledge the events Superman had just gone through, but at least the inclusion of Wonder Woman brings a bit of the ongoing DC Universe into the mix.

    Despite the few things that Superman #26 does right, Lodbell does much wrong. With inconsistency in both writing and artwork, Superman is hard to read this month. In the coming weeks, well see more of Parasite, but hopefully he will be given a greater attention; the kind of attention that Superman needs at this very moment. Read Full Review

    "Superman" #26 is sunk by Lobdell and Lashley's mishandling of Lois Lane, but is redeemed somewhat by everything else. The cliffhanger ending just might provide the mechanism for backpedaling on the poor characterization in this issue, providing some hope for improvement in future ones. Read Full Review
