    Considering I've written almost a thousand words gushing about this issue, you can take an educated guess at what my final thoughts are. Tom King makes his thesis on why Superman works and he's absolutely correct, coupled together with Andy Kubert's amazing pencils, this makes for one hell of an issue. Read Full Review

    Andy Kubert has some beautiful art in this issue from start to finish. Clark has some intense and dramatic expressions throughout this issue and the visuals enhance the drama of the story immensely. Read Full Review

    After a while, this series starts to feel like a series of very attractive non-sequiters that do little but let King express his vision of what Superman means to him. They make for intriguing essays on the character, but two thirds of the way through the story and I still don't really feel a cohesive story here. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Alex Curtis Oct 2, 2019

    While it's not quite good, #4 is likably close, especially compared to the uber-self-serious and indulgent #2 and #3. It's very likely the next issue/s could be bad. Or maybe I'll be wowed. But for now, we should drink in the oasis. Read Full Review
