    The biggest question that I find myself asking after reading this issue is whether or not DC will choose to kill off Superman. I don't think they will since the reboot of the series is only a few months away. It would be pointlessto kill him off when fans know that he's going to be back in a few months. What do you think?

    Superman/Wonder Woman #28 moves “Super League” forward in a bold manner, with the creative team giving us a powerful moment between the two characters. They also gave some solid developments with the “other”Superman, though this unfortunately ended rather abruptly. Read Full Review

    Character development is on point as Superman is reminded of his looming, untimely death and it's exciting to see him come to blows with the mysterious villain of the story. While this issue doesn't progress the plot as much as I'd like it's still a fun read. Why? While Superman has died so many times before this, the writing is so good you'll still care and worry about the guy. That's exceptional in itself. Read Full Review

    While I do wish more had been accomplished in this issue, I feel what was offered was a fun read. The story continues next week in Batman/Superman #32, so be sure to check back with us then. Read Full Review

    Superman/Wonder Woman is a perfect microcosm of this event - wonderful character drama wrapped around unnecessary distractions. Read Full Review

    It's quite possible that I would have knocked another point off of my score if I encountered this book as part of a straight-up monthly series instead of a weekly crossover. And yet, we are getting this story weekly, so it's pretty easy for this particular issue to benefit from the ones that come before (and hopefully from the ones that come after, as well). Tomasi continues to craft decent dialogue, but with Superman's character getting less attention and Wonder Woman's characterization rubbing me the wrong way, I find myself leaning more heavily on the artwork than the script to find enjoyment this time around. Here's hoping the story gets back on track (whatever that looks like) next week. Read Full Review

    This was my least favorite issue of whatever DC wants to call it so far.  At the end of the day, this issue was just setup and really didn't need to exist to keep the story moving forward.  We get a forced reunion between Clark and Diana, a power and a character I hoped we were done with and the newest Superman back on the streets.  I am still enjoying this crossover, but my enthusiasm is fading a bit.

    I'm trying to wrap my head around this. I don't like Ulysses. I don't like Diana-Clark as a couple. And I don't know if Ulysses is a convenient excuse for a fight or if he plays a bigger role in this arc. Lastly, while I think Ed Benes is pretty capable, I don't know if he is the right choice on this book. In the end, after several wonderfully good issues, this chapter in the storyline was a bit of a stumble. Let's hope things rebound! Read Full Review

    "Superman/Wonder Woman" #28 feels limp, which is a shame considering how much stronger the previous three chapters were. Hopefully we'll see the remaining issues rally a bit more, because this slump at the halfway point makes it a bit harder to get excited for the remaining chapters in May. Superman has had a worthy send-off up until now; let's hope that comes back soon. Read Full Review

    This issue did what it came to do, but it was bogged down by significant problems. Read Full Review

    There's a good concept at the heart of Superman/Wonder Woman #28, but this "Final Days of Superman" tie-in stumbles in the execution, particularly in the artwork. Read Full Review
