    Though the narrative is becoming increasingly engaging, unfortunately this issue is completely unbalanced in terms of art. It features three different colorists that I think are meant to differentiate between the different worlds – the real world and the "dream" world – but ultimately only serve to muddy the waters. Most pages simply come off as convoluted, which could additionally be attributed to the complicated layouts provided by Marco Rudy. I can see what the intent is, it just never quite comes together as the team intended. Still, Lemire's story is competently told and ultimately an enjoyable read. Read Full Review

    "Superboy" is back up to its old standards, and I'm glad to see it where it belongs. Lemire has done a good job with the "Superboy" title, and it's good to see Rudy's two-issue stint end on a high note. Crisis averted. Read Full Review

    If Superboy's hero-villain persona hadn't been exploited so many times before, this would have been a much more powerful story, though still solidly told. Unfortunately, art by committee shows one of its worst examples here, making the title's look still its weakest point. Read Full Review
