    This is a quick read but also very much worth it. Per usual with this series, the art and the character interaction is great. The initial fight between Superman and Titano is pretty cool, Lex is sketchy enough to assume another agenda is at hand, and how the conflict within Clark is portrayed is impressively just... true to who Clark is. Yet another awesome and fun issue in this run! Read Full Review

    While I'm not exactly super keen on multi-part stories from the DC Giants as I really enjoy the one-and-done nature of what we've had so far, there are some two-parters that are worth doing. This one shows a lot of good material across the board all while keeping Lex to just a few panels overall yet still a major presence. Its focus on Clark and what his role may be in a world where supervillains are caught so easily is definitely interesting and it reinforces the dynamic between him and Lois well. The team made for a good looking book throughout as it dealt with a lot of different things – it opened on a rampaging giant super-age, after all! – and that kind of cohesive look for it is great. I'm continuing to really dig this incarnation of Superman for its accessibility and for the lack of larger continuity to deal with. Read Full Review

    Superman: Man of Tomorrow #5 does a fantastic job starting to payoff the slow build that has been happening with Superman and Lex Luthor's rivalry. With this first part of "What Makes A City" Robert Venditti poses the question who is best to lead Metropolis' future. A strong argument is made for Lex in this first part, which should make the character arc Superman goes on during this story that much stronger. The ending of Superman: Man of Tomorrow #5 was a strong cliffhanger for the next issue to pick up from. Read Full Review
