    Superman #31 is a fantastic issue. The book as been on a 2-part arc streak for a while but this arc, if this issue alone is anything to go by, is easily the greatest. The character interactions are fun and deep with art that makes the issue worthwhile. Superman and Deathstroke don't fight in this issue but I'm excited to see that in #32. Read Full Review

    The world needs more Lois stories. The comics need more complex Deathstroke stories. And the world needs comics that look this good. I am happy. Kudos to Bonny and Kirkham. Read Full Review

    We're intrigued to know more about Deathstroke when he demonstrates having knowledge of Cestus, who vanishes into thin air after the fight, by stating that he'll be back with stronger men next time. Read Full Review

    The two-part "Breaking Point" delivers on the promise of Superman vs. Deadshot, while also giving Lois more to do than be worried about Superboy. Read Full Review

    Even though I am eager for Tomasi and Gleason's return to the title, Bonny and Kirkham are doing a great job of filling in for them. Superman is the foremost title in a stellar stable of books. Read Full Review

    We have ourselves an awesome creative team stepping into Superman for this arc with James Bonny and Tyler Kirkham, who switch it up this issue and give us a Lois Lane/Deathstroke story....... and boy, do they deliver.  The characters are well thought out, act on point and the art is just amazing all the way through.  I can't wait to get to the next issue so I can get more of this in my life and hopefully, so my only gripe in this issue can be explored further.   Read Full Review

    Bonny pulls a fast one in the end with Superman learning maybe a little too late the identity of Slade's next hit. Can he get there before Deathstroke can pull the trigger? This is another fill-in two-parter, but they've been a lot more fun than expected. Hopefully the quality continues for next issue. Read Full Review

    At any other time, this issue would seem average at best. Yet, in the context of the current marketplace, its simplicity, along with a strong female lead, feels like a super breath of fresh air. Read Full Review

    S.T.A.R. Labs macguffin potential is getting out of hand. They are making an evil super weapon and they made a stun gun that summons Superman like Jimmys watch, in the same issue? This is why we need LexCorp back. Read Full Review
