    This strikes me a little Silver/Bronze age with Superman promising to find a way to enlarge Kandor. But this new dynamic with Superman inspiring his parents, giving them hope, is really great. Okay, I have gushed enough here. Each scene, each interaction, each joke ... I have loved it all here. So thanks again to Venditti and Torres for bringing me back to this happy place and making me smile. This was a home run. Read Full Review

    Superman '78 #6 is everything you want it to be and need it to be. Many have wished that Christopher Reeve had made more and better Superman films, and this is the perfect way to do that. Originally, Lois and Clark were going to get married in Superman V ". So I guess I'm suggesting a timeline of Superman: The Movie, Superman II, Superman '78, Superman III (we've already seen Richard Pryor's Gus Gorman in issue #5), Superman IV: The Quest for Peace and then Superman V". V for Venditti? Read Full Review

    Superman '78 understands why its source material is beloved, but it succeeds because it presents those ideas well in comics and readers never have to imagine seeing this story in a different medium because it's already an exceptional and inspiring Superman comic book. Read Full Review
