    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Mar 29, 2023

    Superman #2 is everything anyone could want from a Superman comic. It tells a compelling story, sets things up for the future, and makes it all look effortless. Williamson, Campbell, and Maher are casually killing it, giving readers a Superman book like no other. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Mar 27, 2023

    I'll admit this was a quick read. But when you review the content and plot progressions and new elements, I think it is a meaty enough read. And I'll admit that I didn't mind, at least here, for more room for the art to breathe and sink into my eyeballs. Between this book and Action Comics, I feel like the Superman books are on solid creative ground again. And I am thankful! Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Mar 21, 2023

    The first issue of this fantastic new series plunged us into Metropolis by dayfleshing out the city of tomorrow like we haven't seen in well over a decade. It seemed bright, alive, and filled with promisewhich makes it all the more interesting that this second issue is so intensely bleak and dark. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - StoryBabbler Mar 21, 2023

    Superman #2 continues its story of frights as Superman faces the Night of the Parasites. Joshua Williams really nails down the danger here as it's something Superman has to use his wit, strength and know-how of Parasite to figure out a way to stop him. Jamal Campbell's art is fantastic from the designs to the facial expressions to the dynamic action, and the environment of a Metropolis during a blackout. This comic book will leave readers ready for the next issue of Superman to come out. Read Full Review
