12 issues in and I have to admit, I’m continuing to enjoy this book. Which is not to say it’s in my top ten or anything. But there’s something appealing about this super-powered clone who is trying to figure out what he wants to do with his life after missing most of his growing up years.

This issue is a great example. Superboy has robbed a bank in the previous issue because he needed money, it was there and…well, because he could. He gets caught up with a group of rich celeb-types where his powers keep him isolated and his naïveté keeps his fellow partiers amused. It’s a weird mix but for me, it works.

Tom DeFalco seems to have fun here putting Superboy through his paces, discovering alcohol and how not having an actual name can be awkward. The one complaint is that the rest of the stuff with the villains is kind of so-so. That dragged down my story rating.

The art? Well, it’s not my favorite. Silva and Lean do a reasonable enough job but it feels a bit inconsistent and unpolished in places.

So is Superboy great? No…but it’s pretty cool. Works for me.

Story: 3 - Good
Art: 2 - Average


  1. Agreed, this book keeps ending up on my list of game day decisions books and always end up being enjoyable.
