Five more incredible tales of the Man of Steel, told in an art style that pays tribute to his primary colors. In this issue we take visits to both Smallville and the Fortress of Solitude. We look at an object that was important to Superman on his trip to Earth, and we see the lasting impact that has on those around him. Plus, punching! Someone has to take down the electro-mechano-organic intelligence they call Kilg%re, but even he’s nothing compared to the massive monster waiting in the farthest reaches of space.

    While the Black and White is Batman's playground, Red and Blue fits our Big Blue Boy Scout just fine. When you think you have heard every angle to Superman, Red & Blue provides just more evidence that this character, and the many timelines touched by Superman, can go forever. This second issue hits the ultimate home run, and gives us priceless stories to add to the legend of Superman in all timelines. Read Full Review

    This is the highlight of the Superman Red and Blue series so far thanks to the diverse natures of the story, the captivating art and celebration of Superman as an aspirational hero. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings May 18, 2021

    Superman: Red & Blue #3features a quintet of tales centered on the Man of Steel's humanity, courtesy of a roster of all-star creators. The thing that makes Superman such an endearing character is his connection to humanity, and I love it when comics explore that; hopefully, the other issues in the series touch upon that Read Full Review

    Still, I shouldn't complain. The parts that are being highlighted are what I love about Superman. I am glad this series is exploring them through the eyes of different writers and artists. On to the book and brief looks at the stories. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Tony Thornley May 25, 2021

    The gimmick of Superman stories in red and blue steps aside to tell tales of Superman's humanity. Each creative team puts in great work, with some doing their best work in a long time. Absolutely a must-read issue. Read Full Review

    This is the best one yet. 10 for the first story, 9 for the second, 7 for the third, 6 for the fourth (expected better from Spencer), 8 for the last one. I loved the art for the 2nd, 3rd and last story, very, very good.

    This was a return to form after the disappointing second issue. There are some great short stories this time around ranging from Superman's impact on everyday people, to the ways that Superman is seen through the eyes of Batman and Wonder Woman, to the quirky space-faring adventures Superman can find himself on while still being able to find ways to spread kindness to others.

    Much like some of the other good Red and Blue stories we've had, there are one or two strong stories here where we see the impact Superman can have on everyday people and the ways that he can rub off on others. It's always heartwarming to see Superman at his purest like this while also showing that he can still find the time to interact with the everyday per more

    Another poor issue in a poor anthology series. It seems since Bendis the writers of anything Superman write only pure crap. Most of this issue was straight out of the silver age. Red Kryptonite, Gold Kryptonite. What's next? The return of the Super horse?
    This series is just an excuse to make money off gullible buyers. I would've passed on every issue after the disappointment of #1 but I already had them preordered. I can't see how the next issue can be worse than this one was but I won't be surprised if it is. But so far this wins my nomination for Year's worst read.

    This comic book isn't pretty. It's a hard slog to finish all 45 pages of it as there isn't a single good story within it. FIVE writers and not one of them can come up with a fun or interesting story to tell about Superman. Well to be fair "A Man Most Saved" could have been good had they not ripped the story of Bibbo Bibbowski and given it to a new character named Charley Miles. So nice try but plagiarism shouldn't be rewarded. As for the art, it was pretty bad. Honestly is no one at DC checking what the hell goes out the door any more? They can't be, there is no way because this entire series has been garbage. Save your money kids and don't believe the other "critics" because they seem to be clueless shills.
