    Outright Geekery - Antonio Pedro Sep 7, 2019

    In conclusion, Tom King leaves me very confused. His Batman is trash, but his Superman is consistently heartwarming, cool and heroic. He really knows how to use Superman in stories,, this series so far has been delightful and I highly recommend it. Please stop confusing me Tom King. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Rick Lopez Sep 5, 2019

    Albeit initially intended for kids, now being sold in the direct market fits the story far better with a much more adult consumer base. Fortunately, the Lois story was not altered from its original form so readers around the world can make their own minds up about this particular chapter. While the Walmart specials continue to pump out each month, these issues will continue to follow behind in toe. Read Full Review

    Again, the artwork alone is worth the price of admission! All this and Sgt Rock! Wow! Buy this issue as even as a standalone within the story, it is a perfect glimpse into the human side of Superman! Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Sep 4, 2019

    Andy Kuberts art really shines in this issue. Hes allowed to create huge scenarios for the multiple deaths of Lois as well as create detailed battle scenes for the Sgt. Rock part of the story. Read Full Review

    Not all the stories are great, but those that are disappear in a flash. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Atlee Greene Sep 5, 2019

    As I've stated before, Up In The Sky isn't meant for the purveyors of the pull list. There is a lack of cohesion with the main story that wouldn't fly as easily in a regular on-going series. It's fun in parts, but it made me less invested in Superman's search for the girl since the story apparently has, too. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Alex Curtis Sep 4, 2019

    Tom King has the best intentions with this series. But it's a darn shame, because this series started out with a compelling plot and promise to delve into Superman's psychology. But these past two issues have failed to bring the same rigor. Instead they fall into an episodic slop of tangled themes and sluggish pacing. Read Full Review

    Maybe there will be a thematic through line established later, but it feels like this is a story King simply wanted to write and here is where it ended up. Read Full Review
