It’s strange to think that while this series is entertaining enough, it feels rushed in comparison to Jeff Lemire’s other series, Sweet Tooth. Lemire’s take on Connor Kent’s adventures as Superboy deals more with the action side of superhero adventure than the drama we’ve come to expect from his work, but that isn’t necessarily a problem. Connor’s interactions with his set of supporting characters and the tease of a Superboy/Kid Flash race around the world fall in line with the positives; there’s something off about the whole thing, though, that I can’t quite explain. The art by Pier Gallo is great, as ever, but some of the models are starting to grate; the civilian disguise of Connor Kent is ludicrous and makes the character morph into something different from other more distinct interpretations. There’s also a lingering sense that we don’t know anything about anything yet; there doesn’t feel like there’s been any definitive arc or character progression, although that may be because only three issues have gone by. Regardless, hopefully Superboy will pick up in the next few issues and become the fantastic title it deserves to be rather than the decidedly average one it’s currently being.
