    While at the same time, the creative team manages to make the reader recall the glory days of the pre-Flashpoint/post-Crisis Superman. Well done. The intergalactic subplot is almost forgettable. The rest of the book is that good. Read Full Review

    If you have been turned off by the DC You Superman, pick up this book and fall in love all over again.  This is the Superman that we have been missing and Dan Jurgens throws in a great Lois Lane as an awesome bonus.  This book is about family and the destiny and what happens when those two things collide.  It's got action, humor and mystery and thanks to Lee Weeks, great art.  I can't recommend it enough.

    Superman Lois and Clark #2 has everything you need in a good pre-New 52 Superman story. The characters are well written and the art is simply amazing. It's hard to find anything bad about this issue because Jurgens and his team put a lot of effort into making a series that will please the Superman fans. It's a comic that will get you hooked on the series if the first issue hasn't done so already. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Nov 30, 2015

    One of the things that DC rarely exploits these days, and certainly not post-Flashpoint, is the sheer number of stories and versions of characters that is has to draw upon. Hypertime notwithstanding, the canonical status of one timeline negates another until it is time to do an event every five years or so, at least until Convergence. This intersection between the old and the new is written purely to warm the cockles of fan hearts, and if it continues in this vein, we will have some very toasty cockles indeed. Read Full Review

    And then we get three reminders of ongoing plots. One, we see Jon peeking out the window listening to his parents talk. It is clear Jon knows what is going on. Second, Chambers saw that Henshaw was in the ship that landed. So where is he? And lastly, we see the alien hunting the Oblivion Stone. It was great to read this couple again. This is the Superman and Lois I love. So even if this felt a bit like a filler issue, even as the second issue, I wasn't too let down. Still, as a mini-series, I was hoping for things to move a long a bit quicker. I suppose the chase sequence defines the threat, shows the secret is coming out, and shows us Jon. But there wasn't earth-shattering about those reveals. Read Full Review

    Of all the books DC has launched this fall, this may be the one to keep an eye on. This family focused conspiracy thriller/ sci-fi goulash is no doubt building to something big. I can't recommend this book enough for those looking for something different from DC's superhero line. Read Full Review

    The series is really solid. Its been quite a while since I've been excited about a Superman comic, and this series is scratching an itch showing how Superman can be done right. Read Full Review

    All told, "Superman: Lois and Clark" #2 is a fine issue that lays some above-average groundwork for the issues to follow. With stronger character work and some stylistic tweaks, it could grow into a great series. Read Full Review
