    And I still don't quite know why the Oracle didn't just send the Supers back together to fight H'El when he arrives on Krypton, before Jor-El can even save him. Isn't there an easier solution? Despite all the questions, I suppose this was an okay issue, moving this story forward on all threads, and with only a couple of odd moments. The Benes art is pretty slick. I don't know if this story will end well ... or will even be comprehensible. But if I can look past the 'why' questions and the 'when' questions, I can appreciate this as a middle chapter. It does what it is supposed to do. Read Full Review

    This is a really short issue, with a lot going on.  Size aside (which I'm not happy about) this keeps you interested in this controversial story arc.  Controversial in bringing back one of the most despised villains of the New 52.  I can't wait to see what happens next, and kind of wish that each character just continued their story individually in their own titles instead of jumping back and forth.  But whining aside, this has the makings of a great story arc, and I'll continue to enjoy.

    Justin Jordan has had a fairly nice run on Superboy up until this issue, and it's because of its place as a crossover issue that Superboy #25 suffered. It feels almost unfair to punish the issue because it has the unlucky fate of being part of a crossover, but even crossover issues have been better executed. Once all this nonsense is over with, Jordan can get back to actually writing a book about Kon. Read Full Review

    "Superboy" #25 looks good, but is continuously at odds with itself, working up a sweat trying to make sense of a story that has cut itself into pieces, reaching out to readers half-heartedly and then offering nothing to keep them, and then ignoring a potentially interesting side of the story to instead deliver a far more complex and contrived one. If this is what happens when Krypton returns, it's better off going away again. Read Full Review
