    The first issue set up the story, but Superman: Lost #2 kicks it into overdrive, showing us Supermans first days cast adrift in space. There are some great moments as we watch Superman adjust to new alien landscapes, even as we switch to the present where Lois struggles to help him recover. Its a thrilling read from beginning to end and makes me look forward to whats to come. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Priest's comics are always fascinating and filled with geopolitical context, but I don't think he's ever done a cosmic story like this before. It starts with a fascinating conceptwhat if Superman was lost in space for ten years while only hours passed on Earth, putting his very human mind through things that no human body could possibly survive.

    Graphic Policy - Brett Apr 12, 2023

    Superman: Lost #2 is an interesting comic in that it feels like there's a lesson there. It has a style that it's a parable but I'm not quite sure what that underling thing is. It continues a series which feels grand in concept and execution but I'm not sure if that is really going to pay off. Read Full Review

    The Comic Book Spot - Ian Miller May 1, 2023

    Priest and Pagulayan continue to spin out a story that hits hard because of excellent execution. It gives readers a new look at a Superman in Space story. The story doesn't feel like an attempt to make things different for the sake of being different. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Apr 14, 2023

    I think this story has a lot of potential and I especially like the 'now on Earth' and the 'away for 20 years' parallel plotlines. I think seeing Superman this vulnerable is fascinating and I want to read more. But I hope this isn't going to be an 'obvious social metaphor of the month' book. Give me some nuanced stories or straight up science fiction.  And keep giving me this art. I know artists don't necessarily like to be compared but this has this slight feeling of 'Ivan Reis meets Kevin Nowlan' and I am here for it. Raises the grade. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Apr 11, 2023

    Superman: Lost #2 shows early signs of trouble for the maxi-series. The art looks fantastic, and the settings are intriguing, but this issue has no story. It's a mildly odd tour of an alien world wrapped around a supply run and a costume change. If this is the story DC intends to tell, there's no way to justify the elevated cover price.

    It's still intriguing and well drawn, but readers will likely find themselves underwhelmed with a journey that offers little insight to new elements while providing so many flashbacks to the events of Superman: Lost #1. Read Full Review
