    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Jan 21, 2013

    So overall, this was the first Superboy issue in a long time that I can say I truly enjoyed. It had an old school JLA feel. It had some very nice moments for the JLA members. There was definitely a Silver Age sort of vibe here and I didn't mind that. It had Superman worrying about Kara enough to send the Flash in on a rescue mission. It had Superboy stepping up and becoming a hero. Even the glimpses into this new Fortress was fun. In fact it had everything except a decent Supergirl. I really think that H'El on Earth is going to slow down the character momentum that Mike Johnson was building in her book. Read Full Review

    Goosing Superboy's numbers with a Justice League cameo, this comic actually will appeal to younger readers far more than diehard Kon-El fans. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Sara 'Babs' Lima Jan 16, 2013

    The art is definitely a little bit jarring. The expressions of some characters are awkward, and the characters look a little bit off. There are also some panels that aren't fleshed out in the sense that they don't provide readers with a lot of detail.While there are some interesting moments in this issue, and a great one-liner from Batman about keeping Wonder Woman out of a fight, I have to admit that most of the dialogue feels rather silly. Scott Lobdell has proven he isn't a bad writer, and this issue demonstrates that this is certainly not his best work. Read Full Review

    Heretical Jargon - Heretic Jan 19, 2013

    H'El on Earth needs to end. It's a bogus arc and DeFalco should go away and work on others things. Read Full Review
