    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Nov 15, 2017

    This was a zany, fun issue that contains some of the best Apokalips moments since perhaps DARKSEID WAR. Whether or not this arc is important to the overall universe or not, there are genuine stakes involved and I'm confident that Tomasi and Gleason will stick the landing in next month's conclusion.

    Impulse Gamer - Andrew Bistak Nov 15, 2017

    All in all, another fun issue from Gleason and Tomasi with the artistic team of Travis Moore, Stephen Segovia and Art Thibert as they explore what happens when the ‘Super' family are stuck on a lawless Apokolips as their god Darkseid is absent. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Nov 15, 2017

    Everyone gets a moment to shine this issue, but none brighter than Jon who takes center stage here as all our stories are coming together with a huge cast of Apokolips' worst driving the narrative forward.  The art in this issue is great and I can't wait to see what this arc gives us next because I'm jut have a ton of fun.

    Jons subplot is also fun as an altruistic act provides him with a potential game-changing advantage in the fight against Darkseids forces. The Super Family will need it as Kalibak and Granny Goodness forces collide with them caught in the middle. A trio of artists Stephen Segovia, Art Thibert and Travis Moore do an adequate job capturing this galactic battle, but it lacks a spark. Regular artist Doug Mahnkes work was dearly missed this chapter. Id love to see Gleason step in more often as opposed to handing art responsibilities to a mini fleet or artists. This is a case where the story is strong enough to carry adequate art, but with more spectacular visuals, this issue would have soared. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Nov 17, 2017

    This was a standard middle chapter to an arc. The threads of the three members of the super-family get pulled a little tighter. Everyone is in the same area of the chessboard. And luckily Lex is unconscious so he can't see the Kent family surviving on Apokolips. But for me, the best part of this arc is the Lex stuff as I try to piece together his heroic motivations and contrast them to Clark's. Who is a hero? How much do you need to help another planet? Should you step in to make Apokolips a better place?? Fascinating. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Scott Shuken Nov 15, 2017

    Now that all of the different moving parts of this Apokoliptian story are established, this issue is able to feel like an adventurous war story. With different generals like Granny and Kalibak planning master schemes, and solitary dissidents like Superman and his family just trying to survive and maybe do some good in this hellish landscape.

    Since Rebirth, there is a continuing theme of hope and despair in the DC line, and Superman is one of the books at that best reflects the hope at the heart of the DC Universe as shown in the basic goodness of the character and his relationship with his family and friends. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Aron Pohara Nov 15, 2017

    Superman continues to be one of the premier titles of the Rebirth line. This particular arc is both entertaining and filled with weight, despite some filler problems. That being said it is relatively fun and certainly better than some books recently in Superman line. Read Full Review

    The story of Superman and his family stuck on Apokolips with Lex Luthor has been fun, but this rotating group of artists is starting to hurt the book. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Jan 4, 2018

    Two issues a month look to be too much for this title to keep up consistent visuals. DC, one book a month could be done by one artist. The story and the letters are fine on this book, but the visuals are disappointing. And on a flagship title, too. Unbelievably disappointing. Read Full Review
