    DC's cancellation of Superwoman removes a smart, scientific, never sexualized, female superhero from their lineup. But thanks to K. Perkins strong characterization of Lana Lang in this issue, and across her run on the series, a hero remains within the DC universe. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Chris Campbell Jan 10, 2018

    In the end it may be the right time to end this run. With the rest of the DC universe taking off in a new direction with the aftereffects of the Metal story line Superwoman is a casualty of too many titles. Though Superwoman started and ran a little convoluted in the beginning and middle, it still has in the end developed into strong run both in art and story. This last issue quietly wraps up the run with enough tension to leave the reader wondering until the end. It ends on a hopeful high note and retains Lana Lang as the sweet girl from back home.

    Despite losing her powers, Lana Lang ends her book as a stronger person, with a stronger relationship and stronger friendships, than she started out with. Thats a win, no matter what. Read Full Review

    Anyways, I am sad to see this book go. There was a lot of weird stuff to get through. But I saw tons of potential here. I read a lot of great character interactions. And I loved what Perkins did here with Lana and her gang of young heroes teaming with her. I hope DC puts Perkins on something else soon! Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Jan 12, 2018

    Perkins' scenes move briskly along, and as much the way the issue ends is a fitting conclusion for the series, this is the kind of concept that could've worked for more than just one issue. Read Full Review

    The Beat - Alexander Lu Jan 10, 2018

    Superwoman #18 isn't a perfect ending, but I don't think there's such a thing. Endings never really make sense. They don't have to. They just need to leave us with a feeling. With an idea. And here, the core feeling is hope. The core idea is that anyone can be a hero. We just have to be brave enough to answer the call to adventure when it comes. Read Full Review

    Interesting title, but a clumsy execution that lost its way after original writer Phil Jiminez left. Read Full Review

    IGN - Kat Calamia Jan 11, 2018

    Superwoman #18 closes the chapter on Lana's time as Superwoman on a clich note, which is ironic because this series started out with so many surprises. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Jan 10, 2018

    The final issue of Superwoman hits the ol' reset button on Lana Lang, and that's probably the nicest thing it could have done. Let's move past this series and speak of it no more. Read Full Review
