    Comic Watch - Tyler Davis Apr 18, 2023

    SUPERMAN #3is a masterclass in pacing and compressed comics writing, fitting so much in without the book feeling rushed. While rife with teases, the book never loses focus of the story it's in. Williamson continues his excellent characterization of Superman's world as Jamal Campbell only grows even stronger as a premier Superman artist. This issue asks to take a leap of faith with Clark into this new era of Superman that is both familiar and completely alien to the readership, and it's a jump worth taking. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Jason Payne Apr 18, 2023

    This run is starting off strong and is a must-read. Superman #3 does a great job of establishing SuperCorp. By the end of it, youll be invested in the hope that Lex can turn it around, at least temporarily. Read Full Review

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

    Superman #3 is a great ending to an amazing story. Williamson has proved that he knows how to write Superman better than anyone could have imagined. Campbell is the perfect artist for this book, and Williamson definitely knows how to write for him. This is a stellar book, a wonderful addition to DCs current Superman renaissance. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - StoryBabbler Apr 18, 2023

    Superman #3 wraps up the night of the Parasites story arc with a satisfying conclusion that lets each of the main characters play some role in it. It's got action, heart, and some bits of humor for everyone to enjoy, even the plan to stop the Parasites allows for Parasite to join in on the fun in his own way. The comic concludes the story with some slow yet steady progression with the Superman and Lex Luthor storyline while neatly setting things up for the next story arc for Superman fans to get excited for.

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Apr 24, 2023

    I hope we get some background about why they hate Lex. And how they are able to do what they are doing. But color me intrigued. I can't wait to see Campbell's take on Banshee. Another solid issue laying down more of that foundation while pushing things forward. Love the Lois moments!  Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Apr 18, 2023

    Superman #3 delivers big action, stellar art, and a clever resolution to resolve Parasite's viral swarm. The pacing, dialog, and plot are top-notch, but an important-yet-unexplained plot point sullies the satisfaction level. Read Full Review
