    Truthfully, I think this arc lost a bit of steam midway through, and ultimately felt a tad too long. But it's still really solid and fun Superman book that just tells the story it wants to tell, it's pure classic superhero comics escapism and there's nothing wrong with that. Bendis still has a phenomenal handle on Superman and Super-family characterisation, and to those who are tired of Rogol Zaar (which, I admit, I too started to get towards the end of this arc) — the book seems to be done with Truthfully, I think this arc lost a bit of steam midway through, and ultimately felt a tad too long.

I really look forward to what will come in the next book, everything that's been teased so far of Bendis's Legion of Super-Heroes looks rad as hell. As a massive Superman fan I'm still very into what Bendis is doing with him, and I couldn't be more happy that he ripped the character away from the hacky hands of Tomasi and Jurgens.

    I did start to lose interest in this midway. It felt a little repetitive and retreading the same ground. But it’s an okay readable arc. I am curious to check out his Legion stuff, though I might trade wait... *just read issue 15, which is the actual end of this arc, and it does end nicely. I think Bendis just needs to work on his “getting there”

    Bendis has a plan for his run in the Superman books. It's a good plan, but it's just one single plan. This translates into a story that drags for too long, and when it's about to reach a resolution, it takes a little detour so it can keep going and going and going. I'm all about exploring a plot, but at some point it goes a bit stale when it doesn't move forward. At the end of this volume we get an idea of a resolution for the Zaar plot line, but either the closing was a bit underwhelming, or it's Bendis has a plan for his run in the Superman books.

On a final note, the arrival of the Legion is definitely a highlight. But let's be honest, it is yet another detour to avoid coming to a real ending.

    [Read in single issues] Bendis's Superman is a little weird, to tell you the truth. He's spastic and doesnt seem to act like, well, Superman. Also what's up with Lois? I cant begin to describe all the problems with Lois.

    I'm a little confused about what Bendis is trying to do here, but I'm enjoying the ride.

    [Read in single issues] The interstellar arc really takes off for the stars, with the gorgeous art, epic space battles, and staggering double page spreads these you'll have come to expect from this run.

This book gives a lot of answers and a lot of payoff; the family dynamics, in particular, are great. And the first few issues tell some great stories and make some big changes to the status quo that I think are well earned. But when we get back to the central conflict in the last few issues, it quickly spirals upward into this grand conspiracy that was only lightly hinted at, and tries to spin that into this dire galactic situation that feels poorly defined, vague, and largely ethereal. We're asked to go from caring about these inter-family problems, Rogal Zarr, the Zods, and suddenly feel invested in a multi-empire clusterfuck amongst characters we don't know or care about and for reasons we don't fully comprehend. It just felt rushed. But it was exciting, and I'm looking forward to the next arc.

    Another surprisingly weak Bendis installment of Superman! Jon recounts his story of his lost years (which could have been a Hell of a lot better and/or intriguing), before the reunions are complete the House of EL has some tidying up to (hectic plotting and art), until the final pay-off is towards the end when a conspiracy is revealed that has been built up over Bendis' previous issues.. so hopefully this is going somewhere special. 6 out of 12...

    Explaining what happened to Jon when he went off, and wrapping up with a nice slamfest with all Krypton survivors. Continuing to enjoy Bendis' run. Though, again, the conspiracy of Krypton's destruction shows a "Univeral Council" who all talk like... Bendis characters. Change it up every now and again, man. That's what can happen if you're writing eleventy books a month.

    This volume started off GREAT; mystery, action, comedy... but the last two issues (or chapters) left something to be desired. There was much left unexplained, and the introduction of the 'United Planets' (based on Earth's United Nations) is laughable, given how productive the U.N. is. Still, I'd recommend it.

    Pretty intriguing Kryptonian lore going on here, and a surprise entrance from the Legion of Super Heroes (zapped in from the far future).
