    But speaking to this specific issue, all in all, it is a really exciting and enjoyable read. I would recommend picking up a copy next time youre in your local comic shop. Read Full Review

    The simple fact that an issue like this is taking place so late into "New Krypton" leaves me seriously worried about the overall impact of the crossover. At this point Johns and his collaborators have precious little time to accomplish what they set out to do. Forget matching the impact of "The Sinestro Corps War," at this point I'm just hoping for a crossover that doesn't fizzle out. Read Full Review

    This issue ends with a nice cliffhanger that heightens the conflict in this book. It should be interesting to see what develops. Read Full Review

    Still, things are definitely rolling ahead towards the big conclusion. Big turning points are hit here, and it's hard to not get a little excited about what's next in "New Krypton." There are numerous ways that I can see this story going, and I appreciate the fact that Johns and company have kept me from pointing at one and saying, "Yes, this is how it will all end." In many ways, "New Krypton" is to the Superman group of books what "Sinestro Corps War" was to Green Lantern's two comics; a creative kick in the pants that brings out the best in all comics involved. "Action Comics" #872 is easily the weakest installment of this story to date, but when your weakest is still a good (if not great) comic, that's a good sign indeed. Read Full Review

    Another solid outing from Johns, but a rather disappointing continuation of the socalled New Krypton event. Read Full Review
