    Now watch it turn out to be Ursa in disguise! As I usually say with this book, no complaints here. This was a great mix of silliness and super-heroics, with a healthy dash of Supergirl! Read Full Review

    And if all that doesnt convince you that this book is equally enticing for adult and child, let me tease a particular status quo changing moment toward the end of the issue. I wont give it away, but a MAJOR figure in Supermans past returns (for good, it seems) and no one that reads it can tell me it didnt crack a little bit of their heart off in that moment as Superboy and Supergirl cheer on her arrival. If only this same scene could be duplicated in the mainstream continuity oh the stories that could be told. But until then, Im hooked on the Family book. Might even have to add a second copy to that pull list. My niece is a great sharer. Me? Not so much. Read Full Review

    I really like this comic because it was interesting to see the recordings of baby Superman and Krypto before they left their planet. I like that the Super Family is home schooled. It would be cool to go to school at the Fortress of Solitude. The ending was happy but short. I would tell my friends they should read this story because it's funny and detailed. Read Full Review

    "Superman Family Adventures" has regularly been a treat; especially in the context of a DC Universe with multiple incarnations of the Man of Steel that just don't quite feel "super" enough. Aureliani and Baltazar share enthusiasm and reverence for Superman and his supporting cast, and that comes through quite nicely. "Superman Family Adventures" #8 is a great sample of what to expect from this book and also makes for a snazzy introduction to one of the comic book industry's -- and even America's -- icons. Yes, younger readers will certainly find greater enjoyment in this story, but the young at heart will be almost equally rewarded by this issue. Read Full Review
