Read full description of the books:
It’s hard for Geoff Johns to do much wrong these days. He has put Green Lantern back on the map, he’s written the best Superman arcs in 10 years (personal opinion), and has a tendency to play with the lore of a character without ever stepping into sacrilege. Superboy is another triumph to add to his collection.
The story itself is very simple, and played on a small scale. But herein lies the genius. Whereas Johns’s recent Flash: Rebirth brought back ever speedster ever (or just about) and was a little overblown, Superboy is relieved here of the big “how he comes back” story, and we get to see what happens after, which is really the stuff that fans care about. It’s a great jumping on point for those not familiar with the character – I hadn’t read much Superboy stuff for a while and found I was able to get on board quite easily.
What you do get is some pathos, a decent amount of foreshadowing, Lex Luthor at his most despicable, and Brainiac making a small but pivotal appearance. Oh, and some amazingly beautiful art work from Francis Manapul. The lack of ink work and soft colours is not a style I’m generally fond of, but here it shines when combined with Johns’s writing. The double splash page early in the first issue is brilliant – I had trouble summoning up the will to turn the page.
Overall, an excellent beginning to what I hope will be an excellent series.
