Leaving for a mission in deep space with the Justice League, Superman's apparent PTSD threatens to compromise their mission.

    It's a smart move to have every issue include some scenes in the present day, where Clark is still trying to process his own trauma after returning. The slow parceling out of the truth of Clark's lost adventures is still being written, but there's no question that Priest is giving us one of the most unique Superman stories in a long time.

    I thought overall this was a solid issue for this series. I wonder if the complete lack of the Lois subplot about corrupt politicians and the concentration on Superman's time on Kansas gave the book more focus. I like that Priest sort of castigates all political groups for not looking past their own biases to try and help everyone. I think the character of Hope is fascinating, a person suffering so much they make bad choices. And that ending! Solid issue. Great art. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Sep 12, 2023

    Superman: Lost #6 doesn't pay off the cliffhanger from the next issue and instead jumps forward ten years where Clark's new planet is heading for catastrophe. Priest plays with interesting ideas and concepts, some of which feel wholly original and others heavily imply real-world allegory, but the pieces never come together. Read Full Review
