What did the
Man was I excited for this New Krypton cross-over to get started, and it seems like out of nowhere it is more than halfway over with. Granted time has been going fast because I have been so busy, but I think part of that feeling has to do with the fact that for me not much has happened thus far. The past two chapters especially were very underwhelming due in part to the fact that they failed to significantly move the story along. Robinson succeeds where they failed by not only hitting on many different characters in this one issue, but by also upping the ante for the story; all these Kryptonians who landed here on Earth are finally starting to DO things other than killing some whales. One complaint for me revolves around a death in issue that I feel is wasted and doesn’t work because we barely had time to get to know and care about the character. Guedes art and the coloring in the issue are on par if not better than Robinson’s writing. I enjoyed his art during the Atlas run, but by this point it has really started to grow on me. So, a great issue but I still think this cross-over took too long to get going and will likely have to wrap things up in a rushed last few issues.
