    With Superboy #27, its clear that under the pen of Marv Wolfman, this series is becoming one to keep an eye on. Wolfman manages to successfully position a character with villainous intentions as a likable protagonist, a complete reversal in tone from previous issues in the series, and lets the title gain a whole new level of depth and intrigue going forward.

    As I said before Superboy #27 isnt anything special. The story seemed a bit dull and generic, and Connor continues to go missing. If there is anything, of value to take away from this issue, its the fact that Raven has begun to step into the double-agent role that she has always been known for and is playing a much bigger role in Jons story than we were lead to believe. Hopefully next months issue will correct some of these problems but until then, Superboy continues to disappoint. For more Superboy news and reviews, stay tuned to We The Nerdy. Read Full Review

    I really found the layout of the story hard to follow.  At one point we're at the middle of the story, then we move back to the beginning, and we're given no indication of what's going on.  That might work for Tarantino, but Honey Bunny doesn't really work for Superboy.  As it's been for a couple issues now we're given the psychotic Jon Kent, which really takes away my enthusiasm for the title.  I actually got upset when he almost died, and then didn't.  That's not the way I'm supposed to feel about Superboy.  But if you're going to read this issue, take what you will from it, but don't get your hopes up.
