While all the other “Super” titles are in the midst of the big conflict brewing between New Krypton and Earth, Adventure comics seems to be just happy to tell a good, down to earth story about Conner Kent readjusting to life. It’s so nice to see Smallville back to being the main setting of a comic, and it really reminds of all those great adolescent-Clark Kent stories. And for fans of Krypto, it doesn’t get much better than this. I mean, who doesn’t want a flying dog that brings you dinner and sets the mood for the ladies by lighting candles???
Geoff Johns is often known for his love and reverence for characters, and that really comes through during the interaction between Conner and Wonder-Girl. I mean, sure there’s a nice little side piece that brings the threat of Lex Luthor into the story, but the meat of this comic is in the “slower” parts.
And what is there to say about Francis Manapul’s art? It’s so good, it’s ridiculous. I want some posters, and I want them NOW! Can you hear me DC?! Put the Alex Ross stuff on hold!
The Legion back-up is pretty decent, and kept me hooked even though I really don’t have any background with these characters. But i feel like i would have gotten my money’s worth even with just the main story.
This issue really reminds me of the last issue of Justice Society that Johns wrote, heartfelt and touching, and amazing regardless of how little action there is. This is probably the best “Superman” title I’ve bought in awhile, and there wasn’t a single punch thrown!

Story: 5 - Excellent
Art: 5 - Excellent


  1. Agreed!  I’ve loved this series so far. I don’t know if I’ll keep reading when the creative team changes.
