    This new powerless Superwoman is a great starting point for any reader interested in solid characters. Readers turned off by the direction the last arc took will find a welcome return to a passionate and powerful new Superwoman. Read Full Review

    Overall, I really enjoyed this issue! It continued the storyline from the previous arc, while really expanding on Lanas internal conflict over being a hero or living a normal life. This was a great first issue for Perkins and Im excited to see where she takes Lana next. Read Full Review

    Congrats to Perkins, Segovia, and Thibert. This could have been a jumping off point. But I'm still here. Read Full Review

    A new creative team and a new status quo (thanks to the Superman Reborn story) has given this book a new life.  K. Perkins had a lot to deal with jumping on this book and she came through with flying colors.  This was the best issue of this series and we really don't have a Superwoman right now.  I can't wait to see what we get when we do.

    Superwoman has been an inconsistent and underwhelming book on the Superman family. This first issue for the new creative team is a positive step that could potentially make Superwoman the 2017 most improved Superman title. Read Full Review

    It seems like everything in the DC universe is right on the edge at the moment, built up for the resolution of Rebirth, but not taking that final step. Read Full Review

    Interesting character dynamics are at play, but it'll end with you scratching your head as far as where it goes from here. Read Full Review

    Lana's journey would have been more satisfactory had she not had to rely on Superman. The visuals have a few speed bumps, but they look better than most books. This is a decent read, but really could have been something with a stronger, more independent lead. Read Full Review

    This is the worse time to lose your powers. Superman is recruiting a team to help defend against the big bad coming, and now he's a man short. Considering this, it's easy to assume not having powers is going to be a really short run. We will just have to watch and see how big of a part Lana will play in the next couple chapters of Rebirth.

    ComiConverse - Kyle King Apr 21, 2017

    This was perhaps the poorest effort yet in a series that has struggled to figure out what it is supposed to be, raising questions whether it is time to pull the plug on this misfiring title. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Duke Harrington Apr 19, 2017

    DC should have just canceled this book the moment it decided it was going to tip over the narrative apple cart upon which this entire series was based. Of course, considering where sales were, and given the price hike to $3.99, I don't expect cancellation is that far off, regardless. Read Full Review
