Available to comics shops for the first time! It's the finale of Tom King and Andy Kubert's Man of Steel epic and Superman is captured off-planet, with Earth's remaining heroes left to fend off an alien robot invasion! If Superman can break his bonds and rise up against the diabolical mastermind who unleased the attack, he can save his adopted home, even from several galaxies away, and begin the long journey back with the little girl from Metropolis whose kidnapping initially sent him on this epic sojourn through the cosmos. Originally published in Superman Giant #15 and #16.

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Dec 4, 2019

    Andy Kubert's art is amazing throughout this issue. From large, beautifully detailed action scenes to quiet, character based moments between Superman and Alice, Kubert infuses the art with style, energy and heart. There are some beautiful visuals in this issue. Read Full Review

    This is a sweet ending to a series that often had a bitter edge, and it feels like an experiment that worked about fifty percent of the time. There were moments of brilliance, and moments that felt completely wrong for a Superman story " especially one geared towards a wide audience of casual new readers. Read Full Review

    Again, this is Tom King's love letter to Superman. But it is also a testament to all that is good about the world. And what a great homage to Clark's upbringing. In totality, it really is a love letter to Ma and Pa Kent! And that is what makes Superman: Up in the Sky so great! Read Full Review

    The art is largely beautiful and, while sometimes the moment-to-moment storytelling can suffer (those scenes of Earth's heroes being decimated by the invasion could maybe have been punched up by some different choices by Kubert), the layouts and emotions are always top notch. Read Full Review

    The story itself is a good idea. I would like to see it revisited someday with more care and detail. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Alex Curtis Dec 4, 2019

    If you've enjoyed this meandering, rip-off series so far ($5 a pop, people, despite this already being released at Walmart), this will come across as profound to you. I wish I did, because after six issues, I don't find Superman any more interesting than before. In fact, it makes me realize why so many people find him boring to begin with. Reader, if you haven't read any or much of Up in the Sky"please save your money. Invest in Brain Michael Bendis's stellar work on the character. Read Full Review
