Okay so earlier I mentioned in another review how an arc brought a story to a fitting conclusion and also laid groundwork for future excitement. The next and final issue of New Krypton in Johns’ Action Comics is simply not going to be able to do that unless it gets delayed a few months and ends up being a triple or quadruple-sized issue. On to this issue of Superman; the art and writing are both fine the biggest problem is that this is part 9 of a 10 part story and things don’t progress at an adequate pace in fact they barely progress at all. After nine issues we are still pretty much in the same place we were when we got started except there are a lot more characters thrown into the mix. Actually, so many characters have been introduced into this cross-over that I can’t even count how many were completely ignored in this latest installment. I was really excited about this cross-over, and man have I been let down. The annoying part of it has been the fact that none of the issues have been bad on their own, but in retrospect as part of a cross-over they fall flat. I understand Johns, Robinson, and Gates have a definite place they want the Super-line to get to, but I can’t help but feel that they could have gotten there without wasting our time with this convoluted cross-over.

Story: 3 - Good
Art: 4 - Very Good
