    Despite Lois re-joining the cast of this book's already impressive list of players, Jimenez's writing in combination with Emanuela Lupacchino's ability to block scenes means that no one gets side-lined to make way for Lois and instead means the series has found a way to bring back the dynamic some thought lost without reversing the emotional beats that worked so well.

    This book succeeds on great character work and a sympathetic approach for a top tier villain. Throw in the spirit of Lois Lane and you've got a completely unique, fun and well executed title. Read Full Review

    Enjoyable as always, and every issue goes in a direction I didnt expect. Jimenez just keeps hitting the ball out of the park with this title. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Matt Santori Nov 9, 2016

    At any rate, Superwoman #4 is another great installment that may only fall short of the previous three issues for its position in the ongoing narrative. A lot had to be introduced and explored in this issue, most of it interior to the characters, and that slowed down the pace a bit. Nevertheless, what this issue means for the future of Lois Lane and Superwoman in general definitely has me tapping my foot waiting for the next installment. Read Full Review

    Throughout the series brief run, reluctant superhero Lana Lang has been haunted by the lost loved ones from her past. In the tale subtitled Together Again (For the Very First Time!), though, has that become literally true, or is the Daily Star science reporters despair descending into madness? Read Full Review

    Lana's tenuous health has become a ticking clock that provides this book with a wonderful sense of tension and unease. Unfortunately, the series still feels a little too dense and overcrowded for its own good. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Nov 13, 2016

    Every issue of this book has been surprising, and it has featured some of the best twists and turns since Speed Racer left the air, including bad things happening to Lex Luthor (which I'll always sign off on.) With so many ongoing series set in Metropolis, it can be hard to keep everything straight, but Superwoman #4 is polished, well-drawn and engaging, featuring an interesting main character trying hard to balance all the parts of wearing an S-shield in the DC Universe.

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Nov 17, 2016

    This was confusing. Not confusing in the 'Grant Morrison', intentionally confusing way. Just tough to read and know where and when all the scenes were happening. And those questions kept pulling me out of the book. And that isn't fun. Still, the concepts are fascinating. The art is beautiful. But this was a step back for the book. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Nov 9, 2016

    A whole lotta stuff happens that brings us incrementally closer to some kind of climax. I suppose you get your value for three bucks, but you're not going to walk away satisfied. Nothing really wrong with the technical side of the thing, though some of the faces seem a little off. There's so many of them yammering away all the time, I suppose I can forgive a little slippage.

    Overall I enjoyed it, the art stayed true to the Supers format of pretty clean lines and colorful inking. The story was well written and leaves the reader wondering what's next. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Tyler Sewell Nov 10, 2016

    The creative team took on a lot of material coming into the series' very first story arc and now the series is consequently suffering. It's time to cut the fat and dedicate to the most significant plotlines. Read Full Review

    The art continues to remain great, which is a positive I can give the book. Also plus this is Jimenez, was an artist before and now he is writing, and despite my criticisms, he has actually written a pretty good arc. After all my negatives at least I am excited to see how Lana will face Lena and the Bizzaro’s. Read Full Review
