    After a rocky debut, the new creative team stepped up its game across the board for this much better follow-up feature. Read Full Review

    A strong opening and closing with plenty of emotional journey in the middle. Lana hasn't been this interesting in ages. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj May 16, 2017

    I haven't really mentioned the art throughout this review/recap but it crackled. In particular, I really love this last splash which has such a defiant vibe in comparison to the first. It conveyed that this isn't the worried, scared Lana anymore. She is ready to throw down. I am still on board. There was a lot of character progression in this one issue. I think I have a better understanding of Lana's mindset now. And she seems much more in control of her own destiny, acting with purpose. I am still hopeful the backstory speed bumps will be smoothed over. Read Full Review

    This is a transition issue where the hero makes a change, but, sadly, the outcome won't be seen until the next installment. Standing on its own, the story is just okay. The visuals run from good to adequate, but at least the colors and letters are strong. This title needs some upgrades if it's going to continue. Read Full Review

    In spite of a historic and convenient plot device, K. Perkins defines a strong, human voice for Lana and a confidence to Lana's role as Superwoman. Read Full Review

    Superwoman is now a good series. But not one that leaps other comics in a single bound. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson May 10, 2017

    I'm 100% behind the idea of characters like Lana getting to deal with superheroing after decades of being tangential and adjacent to Superman, so I enjoy the concept of this book. Superwoman #10 has a few wobbles in the storytelling and a really terrible villain at its core, but still manages to stick the landing and deliver the drama. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner May 10, 2017

    Superwoman #10 dealt with the major thing missing from this book after Superman Reborn and while that was very necessary, it wasn't as fun as last issue.  I loved the art and am still on the trolley, I just hope this was a little bump in the road for Lana Lang and Team Superwoman.

    Comic Crusaders - Andy Hall May 16, 2017

    Perkins has a lot of experience with the various Super- titles and this seems like a slight stumble after a strong outing last issue when she took over the title. Let's be honest, this title has been a mess for a while and she has a big job on her hands turning this around. I really want to give her the benefit of a doubt and see if she can make this a consistently compelling title. Read Full Review
