    As this mini cross over concludes, we are left with some interesting ideas that Lobdell planted. He and Rocafort seem to work well as a team, and they complement one another. This is a bigger issue than advertised, and will be important in the Superman titles moving forward. Read Full Review

    Although Krypton Returns is very pretty, it lacks substance. Superman #25 tries to be epic and thought-provoking but isnt able to deliver on either level. On the action front, the comic is very solid, but if youre expecting more than a punch-off, you will be disappointed. Read Full Review

    And so, mercifully, Krypton Returns ends. I don't know if I could explain what happened but it happened. My condolences to Superboy fans. Read Full Review

    Superman #25 puts Krypton Returns to a rest, but it is more confusing than satisfying.  The action, art and characterization are good, but the story and dialogue bring everything down.  Hopefully the future of the House of El will be better and H'el free. Read Full Review

    I think of Scott Lobdell as a big idea man. He likes epics and he likes to have the space to tell a lot of story. But this density works against him, and Superman #25 is a casualty. At least the "Krypton Returns" story line is over, so hopefully Superman can get back to being a savior of Metropolis and not a guy battling chronal distortions or alternate realities.
