    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Dec 21, 2016

    So a very crazy chapter in this book. I don't know why the 'time runs different in the cubes' thing was mentioned once because we never saw any upshot from it. Perhaps next issue? Lana's character issues and the complete deconstruction of Lena are great threads. Things are progressing in a weird, wonderful way and I am on board. And I stand by my guess that in the end, Lana dies and Lois returns. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton Dec 15, 2016

    On the down side, this issue is a lot of talk and explanation, building up to a fight that is too brief, although the conclusion of it does create an interesting situation. I am eager for the story to finally take us to the big Ultrawoman/Superwoman battle that has been building up. Read Full Review

    A lot of build up for the punches coming next issue. A decent installment, but nothing that will be memorable for readers in a year. Read Full Review

    The Pop Break - Andrew Fontana Dec 14, 2016

    In terms of art, this book is no slouch. Santorelli's Lena Luthor is truly a monstrous reflection of her older brother, familiar yet entirely distinctive. All the scenes involving Luthor evoke a terrifying futurism that stands in sharp contrast next to the mundanity of Metropolis. Indeed, the detail of his figures and his unique use of layouts make each panel pop with energy. His pencils have some difficulty with distance, but that is only a complaint when compared with the rest of his artwork. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Terrence Sage Dec 14, 2016

    Superwoman is a title that stands uniquely together and apart from the Superman line of titles and as far as ongoings go, has done great work at fleshing out another corner of Metropolis and its citizens, both super powered and non. Jimenez and company are nearly completed with the opening arc of Superwoman and the road to saving the day has paved with hard choices, good character moments, and an ending that could change everything for our leading ladies.

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Dec 14, 2016

    Superwoman continues to be a great Super-title! There must be some resolution with the Lois subplot with either an explanation Lana can live with or an acceptance on her part. Surely, the bizarro holds the key, and what happened to Lex? There are still lots of unanswered questions to bring a reader back. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Aaron Berke Dec 16, 2016

    With mysteries abounding and the usual twists and turns aplenty, SUPERWOMAN continues to head in an exciting direction. The story doesn't always make a ton of sense, but that's just part of the fun. The artwork remains problematic and sometimes hard on the eyes, but the action scenes are executed vividly. And with a wonderful character like Lana Lang anchoring all the insanity, there's plenty ofreason to stick with SUPERWOMAN for months to come. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dillyn Chadwick Dec 14, 2016

    Bits and Pieces:This issue was terrible. It's not that it even pissed me off, it's that it's just so boring and nothing happened. It's so hard to look at from the bad art and the overly wordy bubbles make this issue such a chore to get through. Read Full Review
