    Superman Wonder Woman #8 is the strongest chapter of the Doomed crossover thus far and most of that is thanks Soule's choice to focus on Wonder Woman. While Brian Azzarello is making Diana the God of War, Charles Soule has ensured she still retains her humanity. This comic is romantic without being overly sappy. Anyone who wanted to skip this because they chose to not read the crossover would be doing themselves a great disservice. Read Full Review

    But to be honest, I don't feel driven to pick up that issue, or any of the others in this series. Let me know if I missed anything. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner May 15, 2014

    Superman/Wonder Woman #8 slows down the Doomed story and makes it that much better.  Those who love Superman are there to help him, even if it seems like he doesn't want it.  The big surprise was already spoiled by DC, but it's still pretty cool and Tony S. Daniel makes everything look great.  I am looking forward to see how this all ends, but also the fallout in this book and the New 52 as a whole. Read Full Review

    And so far, the Doomedevent has shown itself to be consistently good, though I'm still waiting fora really great issue to come out, whichI think will happen quite soon. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman May 14, 2014

    While the first chapter of Doomed hit us with a massive slugfest, Soule's follow-up is purely character-driven and rightfully so. Instead of just having Superman act like a complete jerk and simply having some fun with it, Soule's able to tie this new mentality to the focus of this book: Kal-El's relationship with Wonder Woman. It's essentially a one-way argument since Diana's focused on helping him and not humoring his questions and accusations, but it's still a gripping bit of dialogue and hopefully these topics will reemerge. Throw in some consistently pleasing artwork and you have a solid second chapter of Doomed. Sure, the ending feels a little sudden, but it just goes to show how much Diana can help him in his time of need. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen May 21, 2014

    In an otherwise tepid sort of plot, Soule manages to infuse some real moments of character, making for a credibly uncomfortable read. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose May 15, 2014

    "Doomed" is a surprisingly strong crossover among the Superman books, primarily because each issue hits this concept at a new angle. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Daren Taveras May 16, 2014

    "Superman: Doomed" has taken readers on an unsuspecting route. Despite focusing on heavy action, the arc is reading in an opposite manner. The story has a slower pacing that focuses more on Clark Kent than Superman. Reserved internal conflicts between Clark and Diana are lying below the surface, and may erupt following the events of the current arc. It's exciting to see what Soule and Daniel are capable of going forward. Despite being tossed into a somewhat forced tie-in, this creative team has found a way to provide a satisfying and entertaining addition to not only "Superman: Doomed", but also Superman/Wonder Woman.

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin May 14, 2014

    Superman/Wonder Woman #8 is not ground breaking by any stretch, but it's solid entertainment that moves this arc forward with enough positives to earn a recommendation from me. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen May 15, 2014

    That material is a solid showcase for how Wonder Woman interacts with the rest of Clark's circle of friends, but it also seems pointless in the context of the larger story. Meanwhile, Charles Soule's depiction of the brain-addled Clark varies between haunting and comical. Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Cory Robinson May 17, 2014

    While I didn't enjoy the writing in this issue, the suspense is great because of what Clark is turning into and how afraid he is. And while it makes for an entertaining read, it doesn't really feel like something Clark would do, making him seem stupid and useless. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj May 19, 2014

    Anyways, this was an okay chapter in Doomed, probably the weakest of this week's trifecta. While it is interesting to see how the plague is warping Superman's body and mind, it can't get past the fact that Diana was worried about him for days and didn't go to his apartment. And Lois not utilizing her Brainiac powers? And Diana letting Lois go? And Cat not recognizing Wonder Woman? The first problem is significant. These others are annoying. Still, beautiful beautiful art. Read Full Review
