    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Nov 16, 2012

    But really, this opening chapter was nothing but a clumsy brawl between H'El and Superboy and the Titans. I know he is incredibly powerful. I know he needs humanity alive. But I know little else about H'El or his agenda. So I don't know if the book worked on that level. Still, DeFalco is rebounding nicely, slowly improving the book and the characters. They're baby steps but at least they are in the right direction. Read Full Review

    A Comic Book Blog - T. A. Ewart Nov 19, 2012

    Honestly, Superboy has been a letdown since issue #3, and Tom DeFalco, whom I respect immensely, wasn't enough of a draw for me to crack issue #13. This issue has a better, tighter handle on the plot and pacing of the story, and the fight with H'El is good in establishing H'El's power and Superboy's limits. However the issue suffers from being reader unfriendly for the first 8 pages. Superboy has been crossover central and it hinders full involvement on the readers part. This crossover should be more inclusive as it involves Supergirl and Superman, but that remains to be seen. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Kelly Cassidy Dec 19, 2012

    All in all, this book seemed more like another prelude issue leading into H'el on Earth rather than a major component of the story. Part 3 really begins to dive into the arc, so hopefully it progresses more smoothly as the issues go on. Read Full Review

    The Comic Book Revue - Jay Mattson Nov 16, 2012

    This is an issue of comics embroiled in the non-explained. That's a ridiculous, weird sentence because it's the only way I can think to express how terrible Superboy #14 was by the end. I keep holding out, hoping that Superboy will improve, that it will become something greater than a sad excuse for a story about a sad clone. 'Sad Clone' sounds like a witty, off-beat, and zany mini-series by Grant Morrison, not the theme to a series about Superboy. Read Full Review
