Superman and Zod must work together if they're to have a chance of stopping Brainiac! But a victory for New Krypton means a devastating loss for the Legion!

    While the current run of Superman stories rushes towards it climax, all of the pieces of the Superman mythos seem to be falling back into their proper places. Luthor is pardoned (thus paving his way back to living an open life in Metropolis) Mon-El will be away from Earth for a while, and inevitably New Krypton will have to go away some how. Johns, Robinson, Gates, and a whole host of talented writers and artists have taken us on a unique and great ride for the past few years with their Superman stories though, and fortunately its not over quite yet.

    This was a lousy end to a storyline, but an awesome set-up issue for the upcoming Superman crossover, so take that for what it's worth. Read Full Review

    I think James Robinson and Sterling Gates really did a great job on this mini. Many of the plot threads from New Krypton are tied up here. The pace and action was incredible. But there is so much story left to say ... so much to wrap up. Is it possible to finish this year long story in 4 issues? I really hope so. And I think Pete Woods' art is stunning here. I am glad he is staying on as the artist of Action Comics. Read Full Review

    Look, this isn't the best concluding chapter I've read recently. It's not even the best book on the stands this week, but it is a darn enjoyable read if you've been following the Superman universe. I really have to give credit to the creative team for salvaging what I once believed to be a sinking ship. Despite some minor inconsistencies and nuisances, the conclusion of Last Stand comes together as a fun and entertaining read. Read Full Review

    If "Superman: Last Stand of New Krypton" had been labeled as #3 of 8, this might not have been a letdown. As a conclusion to a month-long mini-series and crossover, though, it doesn't deliver quite what it promises. Woods brings his top game to the story, but it's not a terribly thrilling end to the mini-series overall. Read Full Review
