    AIPT - David Brooke Jun 14, 2022

    Superman: Son of Kal-El continues to be an excellent series up there with Taylor's perfect series, Nightwing. It explores what it would be like if Superman was younger and newer to being a superhero, but also more adamant than ever to save everyone and everything without violence. Read Full Review

    The visuals here are great, but I should say that this issue has several art teams that overall mesh well. However, the shift is pretty obvious at points. It looks good if not flawless, but the story is top-notch as always. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Jun 30, 2022

    Superman: Son Of Kal-El #12 builds the plot more, and its an entertaining read, but its not as great as it was in the beginning. Maybe Taylor is holding things off for the future, and the art is good, but compared to some of the other DC books coming out on a monthly basis, its par for the course Read Full Review

    That is a decent cliffhanger. Jay can't be an anonymous news agency when everyone knows who he is. What will the fallout be? This was a fine issue. But it seemed to just be restating the overall plot over again. We are 11 issues in. It might be time for us to pick up the pace. Read Full Review

    While I still like this series overall, the lack of progression is really starting to get to me, especially this issue in that it feels like everything that is done here is done in a way that isn't really thought out and makes everyone involved look pretty dumb. Yeah, the art is great throughout and we get to an interesting cliffhanger, but the majority of our story felt lacking the whole way through. Read Full Review
