    Superman: Son of Kal-El #14 is an excellently plotted, fast-paced comic with many great character moments. So often these days comics stretch out their story, but Taylor and Tormey prove Superman: Son of Kal-El is addictive page-turning storytelling. Read Full Review

    This was a fun, fraught, beautifully rendered story peppered with memorable characters and fueled by a high-octane plot. I cannot wait to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    This entire series has been top-notch, but it feels like we're finally reaching the conclusion of this big arc. We've got a great villain, great supporting cast, and a truly evil villain, making this the perfect second half of this Superman renaissance we're in right now. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Aug 9, 2022

    The final battle against Bendix has begun. It's just too bad that it's going to have to wait again and all the exciting parts of this book were relegated to the end of the issue. The art continues to be great and there are some sweet moments between our hero and his friends and I just hope that with the over a year build-up of The Rising that it just doesn't fizzle out to simply get us an ending so we can move on to something new.
