A few years ago, if you would have told me that I would be staring starry eyed at a Superman comic, I would have laughed in your face and kicked your dog. That’s just how uninterested I was in Superman as a character. But then, this Geoff Johns guy comes along, and slowly but surely, he pulls me into this world of Superman, and along with James Robinson, he has managed to craft what is probably one of my favorite “event” books in a long time.

I think there’s two ways you can look at the New Krypton storyline. If you look at it as a singular story, its easy to feel like there wasn’t much of a story to it because it doesn’t quite have the beats of a regular story. But if you view how I do, as the setup to something more spectacular, this story delivers on so many levels. I want to avoid giving away any spoilers because some people out there may read this and not want to know what happens. Trust me when I say that this issue ends with a bang, and this storyline, beyond a shadow of a doubt, has changed Superman’s world forever. It’s definitely going to be an interesting year or two of stories as Superman and the rest of the DCU learn to live with the fallout of the formation of New Krypton. There are so many interesting threads that have developed from this storyline, and it’s going to be a ton of fun trying to follow a long. If you’ve been wanting to jump onto the Superman band wagon, now’s the time to do it because the character hasn’t been written this well or been this interesting in years.

If you’re someone who gave up on the storyline early on or if you decided to wait for the trade, the easy thing to do would be to call you crazy and dial up the local asylum. But I’m not for doing things the easy way. Instead, I simply implore you to find a way to read this story. You won’t be disappointed.
