    So overall this issue's stories all worked on their own. But they also bolstered the overall Last Stand storyline. I thought this worked. It looks like this three-story format continues next issue. Read Full Review

    I was pretty pleasantly surprised by this comic, especially in light of how much I disliked the last issue. Storywise, nothing really happened to advance the New Krypton/Brainiac storyline, but the little stories that were here were pretty good, especially the last one about the infiltrator. In the end, if you didn't read this comic, you wouldn't be missing much in the Last Stand x-over, but for those of us following the Last Stand x-over, this comic was a worthy addition.

    It really does seem like DC has no idea what to do with this book now that Geoff Johns has exited. They're currently trying as hard as they can to fill up 40 pages to help flesh out happenings from a mediocre event book. If this is the most the book has to offer, then I would rather it was cancelled. It's not painstakingly terrible to read, but it is banally pointless. Let's hope they have impending plans of a cohesive direction for this title once The Last Stand of New Krypton wraps up. Read Full Review

    Maybe its the because of the restrictions of doing 10 page stories within a line-wide storyline, or maybe its because all the writers are guests in this series and probably are simply more invested in their own books, but I feel like none of them are really into it. Come on, youre being paid to write superheroes! Try to have some fun with it and maybe your audience will too. Read Full Review
