    Superman Lost is feeling like it's in the midst of a special Superman story and if it continues to explore this missing time frame of Superman's life, it might go down as one of the classic must-read tales featuring the Man of Steel. Read Full Review

    What do you do when members of your society seem to want to exist in a different reality from everyone else? How far do you go to keep your society together? It's a tricky question to answer, and few writers would tackle it in a story about Superman getting lost in space. That's what makes Priest stand out, and this series continues to build steam as it tells a very different sort of Superman tale. Read Full Review

    The overall shape of Superman: Lost begins to cohere as Superman returns to the strange Earth-like planet he recently departed and finds he's needed there, too; although it makes the prior issue seem like an unnecessary detour, this setting is filled with potential. Read Full Review

    Superman: Lost #4 is the weakest issue of the miniseries so far, feeling more like a step back than a leap forward. But putting Clark in a moral dilemma hes rarely faced before, in addition to a great surprise character popping up at the end, makes the book better than average. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Jun 13, 2023

    Superman: Lost #4 is gibberish wrapped in nonsense. Priest is going out of his way to use Superman's time lost in space to create as many on-the-nose metaphors for real-life social ills as possible. It reads like a city hall meeting agenda rattled off in random order, printed on excellent art. If Priest is using Superman's predicament to make a soapbox point, he's missing the mark spectacularly.

    So I had a hard time unpacking this issue because of Superman wasting time (possibly) instead of saving the planet, saving the people, or trying to go to Earth. And without more info, it is hard to know how long he has been on this planet. Great art though.  Read Full Review
