    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt May 6, 2010

    The main purpose of this issue is clearly to build tension for the remainder of the miniseries and on that level, this issue works very, very well. The stage is set for the big battle and the ante is upped with the destruction of New Krypton. The strong character writing and expressive art do a great job of sucking the reader in, which is precisely what this issue needed to do. There has been a lot of buildup towards this story and I'd say, so far, it seems worth it. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Zack Freeman May 5, 2010

    Even if you didn't get the superb zero issue that DC put out for Free Comic Book Day last week, you really need to pick this up if you're a superhero fan. Seriously, "the bad" I talk about with things getting complicated is rather moot... because Robinson & Gates have crafted this so well that you don't need to have read a single issue before this (but without sacrificing the pay offs that long-term readers will enjoy). Seriously, pick this book up when you go to your LCS this week. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj May 7, 2010

    As a fan, I am sad because the friction between Alura and Kara always made for good reading. And Alura was complicated and as a result a very compelling character to read. This issue kicked of the mini-series in an explosive way. Can the rest of the story keep the adrenaline this high and wrap it all up? I hope so. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza May 5, 2010

    I would like to applaud DC's decision to make this title a $2.99 comic, in a day and age when it seems as though the event books can garner $4 or even $5 per copy. True, that doesn't make the story any more decipherable, but it does give readers a stronger chance to be able to afford a complete miniseries. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Michael Deeley May 10, 2010

    Im complained about how long this New Krypton saga has lasted and have been itching for an ending. Now Im hopeful the conclusion to this chapter in Supermans life will be one of his finest stories. Read Full Review
