    Scott Lobdell gets a bit of a bum rap on this title, but he really has done a solid job here. This issue is fun and he is continually building off of things hes done or plot lines left by other writers. Lobdell is usually paired with a good artist like Kenneth Rockafort, but he hit the jackpot with Benes. Hopefully these two can work together for the rest of the run, as it will make the story that much better. Read Full Review

    Superman #29 ties up some loose ends in preparation to Scott Lobdell's final Superman event and I liked it and hated it all at the same time.  I liked the story, but hated the characterizations. I liked Ed Benes' art style, even if some pages were embarrassing.  I am looking forward to "Doomed" and hope that Lobdell can go out on a high note. Read Full Review

    I do like the goth sort of look for her, especially the Alice Cooper eyes. I am not surprised about the skimpiness of the top. But the hair, eyes, and spiked cape all work. But this issue is ultimately forgettable for many reasons. I don't think the Daemonites story will be concluded in the next couple of months. So maybe this was a way to put this arc on the backburner for a different time. Read Full Review

    As with most issues of Superman in Scott Lobdell's run, Superman #29 is a major letdown. Even in his own series, Superman's characterization is at it's worst, while Starfire is an upsetting shadow of how she appears in almost every other issue of the New 52 in which she appears. The art being sub-par is just the sour icing on this dry, tasteless cake. Read Full Review
