Superman has arrived and he's out of sight! Right? The world may love him, but the citizens of Metropolis are growing skeptical as the cities around them suffer without the help of the Man of Steel. The world doesn't need saving as much as it needs changing, and Superman and his super friends in the Justice League seem unqualified to save the day the way they once did. Could this be the beginning of the end that Pariah prophesied? Or is it just a sign of the times?

    Superman: Space Age #2 is another triumph of an issue, blending Silver Age nostalgia and super-hero action with modern themes of drama, heartbreak and isolation. Its a beautiful story that ends on a high note leading into next issue. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    It's not quite as likable as issue one, as Mark Russell is an odd choice for a story explicitly about hope, but it's still an entertaining comic book. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Sep 27, 2022

    Superman: Space Age #2 is a very expensive, very long, and painfully tedious comic that doesn't appear to have a point other than to provide an alternate look at the 1970s if the Justice League were real. Filled with incredibly awkward action art, never-ending cynicism, and meaningless meandering that takes up 75% of the pages, this comic is a pointless waste. Read Full Review
