    Comic Book Bin - Andy Frisk May 6, 2009

    Overall, I cant heap any more praise than I already have on Woods art. Its fantastic, and the combination of Robinsons and Ruckas plot with Woods art just keeps on delivering the high quality Superman tale with a message we are continuing to get with World of New Krypton. This is a must read. Read Full Review

    Artist Pete Woods even shows signs of improvement despite the presence of many of his usual shortcomings. Though I still can't stand the way Woods lays out a page – his use of vertical panels achieves the exact opposite of the intended effect, and only makes each panel and page feel claustrophobic instead of giving the images room to breathe – there's an energy and emotional resonance in these pages that Woods' recent Superman work has lacked. Coupled with Rucka and Robinson's decision to finally kick their story into gear, Woods' improved pencil-work makes World of New Krypton #3 the first truly promising installment of this series. I look forward to reading more. Read Full Review

    The Comic Addiction - Paul Steven Brown May 7, 2009

    Superman: World of New Krypton is a must read for fans of the Man of Steel. While it places the hero in an environment other than Metropolis or even Earth, the fun is seeing how he adapts to his new situation. As he adapts, so does New Krypton. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza May 14, 2009

    The cover for this issue has been "corrected," showing that the series is once more on track for twelve issues, which is a shame as this issue marks the quarter pole in the marathon of New Krypton. True, there is not a great list of accomplishments for this title as of yet, but the series has nonetheless offered entertaining new stories for one of comicdom's oldest and most utilized icons.
