    The conclusion to Superman's First Year rushes to the end by adding a little too much story. Read Full Review

    Superman: Year One started with promise but has slid downhill from there. While the finale isn't quite the cringe-worthy wtf release that was the second issue, it's also choppy enough to make you wonder if you're missing pages. One step forward, two leaps back. Read Full Review

    The final issue of Superman: Year One is an odd mishmash of decent ideas, never becoming greater than the sum of its parts. Read Full Review

    This series is a confusing mess, but it's also a fascinating one that raises a lot more questions than it answers. Read Full Review

    I'd say Superman: Year One is for completists only, but given the looseness and weirdness of much of its storyline, I'm not sure I can even make that endorsement. Read Full Review

    Superman: Year One #3 reads like a checklist and never offers the slightest bit of stylistic flair or originality to justify this exercise in the repetition of superhero tropes. Read Full Review

    This issue and the series as a whole is a hollow cash grab banking on the name of its famed author. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Jason A. Fleece Oct 16, 2019

    With Superman Year One #3 on the stands, Frank Miller has completed his statement on Superman. Unfortunately, its clear that that statement is Frank Miller doesnt understand Superman, either as a character or as a symbol. The book ends with Superman leaving Earth on another quest, possibly foreshadowing a Year Two; lets hope that that never comes to pass. Read Full Review
