    Overall, this is an extremely fun issue to read and Jordan's writing on the title has been consistently superb. The book is brought down by some art issues, but it's still a great read. Read Full Review

    Superboy is at the school to search for the reason several students have suffered psionic attacks, but that plotline is put on the backburner so that the teen drama can take center stage. Again, it's fun to read, but Jordan doesn't add anything extra to make this comic sizzle and pop. Then there's the problem with Eliza, who claims to be a reject yet seems to be naturally attractive, well-dressed, and able to carry on a witty back-and-forth. Read Full Review

    I enjoyed this issue enough to want to read more on Superboy in high school. The only problem is that the stereotyped teenagers are over the top in their roles. But I'll let it slide because I'm biased to anything John Hughes like. My only real gripe is that towards the beginning a character goes from being a Gwen Stacy type all green jacket, and skirt, to a few panels over where she became a sporty Mary Jane Watson. Maybe it was intended to be a different character, but the art work wasn't completely clear in the end. Superboy #22 give it a read. Read Full Review

    I suppose if you are one of the disenfranchised, if you feel that you are alone and everyone else is horrible, and if you have super-powers, then you might blast into everyone's mind and have them see the world as you do. But after a couple of lighter issues in this title, this issue felt relentlessly depressing. Add to that some pedestrian art and this issue felt like a baby step backwards. Read Full Review
