A rift begins to grow between the couple over a variety of subjects – Jor-El's obsession with his failure to save Krypton, Kal-El's upbringing, Lara's celebrity status – as the story begins to incorporate familiar elements and characters from traditional Superman canon. At that point, Bates hits you with his biggest surprise, blowing open the doors to a ton of storytelling possibilities. With top-notch writing that keeps you entertained and curious throughout and evocative, moody art from Arlem, The Last Family of Krypton is a triumphant return for the Elseworlds line.

DC has a solid creative team at bat with a mildly interesting question. If you want a self-contained story, The Last Family of Krypton might be your thing.

I'm not hooked enough that I'm sure I'll fork out another ten bucks for the next two issues. Read Full Review
