    This story is, in every way, absolutely satisfying. This is a team who deserves every opportunity to work together. And this issue provided the capstone to a project which will, I hope, have lasting effects within the DC line. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Sep 13, 2022

    This is a chaotic issue, with some great action and eventually Jon pulling off a feat just as impressive as his father did on Warworld over the last year. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Sep 13, 2022

    Superman: Son of Kal-El #15 closes the door on Bendix for now, in an action-packed issue that feels like a team book. It's a good ending because it wraps nearly everything up while giving Superman a romantic moment too. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - kcscribbles Sep 13, 2022

    There are a vast number of characters in the book and a lot of action going on, but Cian keeps everything flowing well, and you always know where youre at and what characters are involved at any moment.His version of Robin (Damian Wayne) is especially great.  Through his expressions, the arrogance and borderline insanity of the character comes out.  If I were Jonathan Kent, Id be a little wary of Damian.  At least this version of Damian.

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Sep 23, 2022

    Superman: Son Of Kal-El #15 ends the Gamorra plot very well. Taylor keeps up his strong character writing, and the art team does an excellent job. This ending does everything it needs to and has some wonderful moments. Read Full Review

    Superman: Son of Kal-El is always good but this week's issue #15 is the end of the Henry Bendix chapter (at least for now) and it is a conclusion that delivers on pretty much every level. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 13, 2022

    Superman: Son of Kal-El #15 left me wishing that the threat of the Rising would have been bigger or that I would have understood what the Rising really was, this conclusion to our story came off satisfying enough, even though I wish we would have had more. The art was great though and I loved the character moments. Also, I am highly invested in some new developments that are happening with Jon in this issue. Read Full Review

    Next issue starts the return of Kal-El event so that should make for an interesting and long-awaited reunion even if Jon's adventures still manage to feel surprisingly small scale. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Sep 16, 2022

    Finally this issue, the Gamorran threat ends. Much like the political scenes feel a little too easy, the defeat of this President Bendix and the Gamorran government seems a bit too simple. Read Full Review
