    Comic Book Bin - Andy Frisk Nov 2, 2016

    DC Comics' Rebirth keeps rolling along and Superman is quickly becoming a jewel in the crown of the new line of titles. It's no longer great just because the best incarnation of Superman is back. It's great because Tomasi and Gleason are telling some of the best Superman stories in decades. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Nov 2, 2016

    Giving me everything I wanted from this collision of worlds, and a few things I didn't even know I wanted until I had them,Superman #10 pushes the series to a new high. As far as I'm concerned, this title is the standard for superhero comics, and this issue proves it with enormous spectacle, bold characters, and one heck of a good time. Whether you love or hate the brash son of Batman, his intrusion into the world of Superman and his son is one for the ages, and well worth your time, again and again. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Jon Arvedon Nov 3, 2016

    The character interactions are definitely the highlight of this book, and from the look of things, the next issue promises to build on the solid foundation Superman #10 has set. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Loukas Nov 9, 2016

    The relationship between Jon and Damian has gotten off to a predictable start, and one suspects that Damian's better nature, always close under the surface in Gleason and Tomasi's work, will soon make an appearance. But, given that this is a title that's all about embracing comic book conventions, I for one am looking forward to the inevitable flowering of Robin's heart of, well ... electrum, perhaps? As for Jon, he is the most promising legacy character to enter the DCU since Damian himself, and his meetings with the other members of the Bat Family, and the other heroes of the world, promise delight for a long time to come.

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Nov 4, 2016

    I thought this was just a fantastic entertaining issue. I love how the sons mirror the fathers. I love how Jon takes the high ground at first but is eventually broken by the relentless attacks by Damien. And the art is just beautiful. Bring on the Super-Sons. I'm ready! Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Nov 1, 2016

    Superman continues to be a book that perfectly embodies DC's newfound winning take on their characters. If you're on a limited budget this week, Superman #10 has to be the one you pick up. It continues to be a blast and this story arc looks to be one of the best of the Tomasi/Gleeson run yet. Read Full Review

    GWW - Dillyn Chadwick Nov 2, 2016

    The biggest thing this run has going for it is the character interactions and relationships. With this issue, it's center point. There's a couple action scenes that are fun and I'm glad they're presentbut that really isn't what this title is here for right now. Gleason is really focusing on character relationships and he continues to nail it. Now that we have Batman and Robin in the mix, and it actually works, I'm even more excited in continuing this run.

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Nov 2, 2016

    This is a great introduction to not only this story, but also to the Super Sons series coming out in a few months and I found myself loving almost every page of it.  It's a bit weird in the beginning, but it eases our newest World's Finest team into a relationship that will sure to shake the world.  Great art and a great story that leaves me wanting more.

    This series is easily the most charming addition to the Rebirth catalog, and this issue only furthers that trend. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Jarrod Jones Nov 2, 2016

    Of course, it was probably a pain in the tuchus, but it's likely that everything else about this issue was too. That's what makes Jonathan Kent's first-ever crossover feel like such a triumph, even right out of the gate " the book has been assembled by a group of creators who visibly have an affection for these heroes, who are still discovering what's next for them while never forgetting why they're all here in the first place.

    Heroes Direct - Eammon Jacobs Dec 6, 2016

    Whilst the pair are hugely volatile across the issue, Superman #10 uses this as a way of channelling character development for the two heroes. Even just by smaller events in the issue, we learn a lot about each of them. For example, Damian has a love for animals. So the violent ex-assassin turned vigilante has a love for all things furry… Who would've guessed? But on a different note, we learn that Superboy is fiercely protective of his Mother. The writers bring the pair a little closer together whilst giving a rare insight into their personalities for the reader.Superman #10 isn't a universe spanning story but a smaller, more personal one.

    Multiversity Comics - Brian Salvatore Nov 7, 2016

    This issue is a backdoor pilot for "Super Son," the new Tomasi/Jorge Jimenez series dropping in February, and in just one issue, the case is made that these characters not only deserve, but with thrive, in their own series. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ian B Nov 2, 2016

    Ultimately, I did enjoy this issue, even if some of the plot seemed a bit contrived and some of the characters seemed to act a little odd. It's interesting to see Damien and Jon interact for the first time, both of them not only being from different circumstances of life but also having such opposing personalities. Until now all we had was their father's relationship to go on, but both sons are distinct enough from their fathers to create a unique and interesting new dynamic for future issues as well as their own series.

    ComiConverse - Kyle King Nov 5, 2016

    Storytellers Peter J. Tomasi and Patrick Gleason, the current creative team behind Superman and veterans of Batman and Robin, brought the caped crimefighters from both series together in this prequel to Super Sons, which is due out next year. How well will it go when Superboy meets the Boy Wonder? Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Matthew J. Theriault Nov 1, 2016

    While I wouldn't say Tomasi is entirely accurate in the characterization of either the World's Finest or their Super Sons, at the very least the broad stroke of not establishing Damian and Jonathan as immediate allies is in keeping with tradition. Ever since Byrne rebooted Superman thirty years ago, the first meeting of a Kryptonian and a Caped Crusader has always been fraught with friction. Likewise, Damian Wayne only begrudgingly became Grayson's partner, but once the latter had earned Damian's respect, their relationship was far more amiable and less antagonistic. I expect a similar trajectory for this latest dynamic duo, and seeing what feats will suffice for Superboy to prove himself in Robin's eyes will hopefully prove an enjoyable read. Read Full Review
