This issue now features "ROAD TRIP" part one! It's been an emotional and physical rollercoaster for Superman, Lois, and Jon: the Eradicator, Dinosaur Island, Frankenstein and the Bride, Multiversity, Reborn and Black Dawn-a barrage of terror and horror! What does the family need right now? Yep, you got it...a vacation!

    Call me old fashioned. Call me ancient. I loved this issue. I wouldn't need this every month. But now and again, I don't mind being reminded that these are heroes with morals and ethics and a sense of civility that transcends the tawdry cynicism of these days. Read Full Review

    Superman #27 feels like a one-shot that brings the family closer together and honors the military service of American women and men. Read Full Review

    So if Superman is not on your pull, it should be as the creative team really understands these characters and brings their best qualities to light! Read Full Review

    Superman is one of the best examples of the success DC is enjoying with their Rebirth renaissance (if that's not a redundant phrase). New 52 Superman just seemed to be a character with a passing resemblance to the Superman I loved reading about as a kid, but now it feels like that Superman has returned to the pages of DC.

    Comicsverse - AJ Zender Jul 19, 2017

    With a family centric story, SUPERMAN #27 isn't a superhero tale. As the opening to the "Declaration" arc, writers Tomasi and Gleason give us a taste of Super-Dad and some American history -- although the textbook feel might not appeal to every reader. Read Full Review

    After Black Dawn, the Superman family could use a break. This issue wasn't the most exciting entry in this run, but the family dynamic kept it interesting. Hopefully, Gleason and Tomasi have a little more in store than an extended trip through history with this arc. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Daniel Levine Jul 19, 2017

    Superman #27 is a character study, with little action and returns Supes back to his optimistic, boy scout mode. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Tom Zimm Jul 19, 2017

    In this issue, the Kent family takes a vacation from superhero work while identifying the true heroes and the values that motivated them. While the book surfaces many important issues facing our treatment of war veterans and those who've made sacrifices it misses the mark in other ways. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Scott Shuken Jul 19, 2017

    While it was well made and executed, particularly Lois' stop honoring Deborah Sampson, it still didn't deliver on what I'm looking for when I pick up Superman. Coming right after another "day in the family" issue, it just needed a little bit of balance. Read Full Review

    IGN - Blair Marnell Jul 20, 2017

    There's a quandary in this issue. Clark Kent, Lois Lane, and their son, Jonathan, spend the issue living up to the ideals of Superman while on vacation... but it's boring. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jul 19, 2017

    This issue was probably the most disappointing issue of Superman that we've had during the Rebirth era of the comic because nothing went down besides for a history lesson about America and finding out that people are sometimes pieces of shit.  The art in this issue was fine, but that's about the only thing that was fine.

    A solid story concept was unevenly executed, suffered from subpar art, and sometimes permitted the strictly philosophical to get in the way of the persuasively personal. Read Full Review

    Superman does not stand for these things. He should not. He must not. I expect better of him. And of those who chronicle his adventures. Read Full Review
