    Moreover, I am very worried that this title is going to be inextricably linked to Teen Titans and The Ravagers, two titles I don't think I want to read. If I can't understand this book without those, this book might lose me. No complaints about the art though. Read Full Review

    DC has already announced a Superman Family crossover event in the summer and I believe a couple of breadcrumbs were left for us to chew on. Read Full Review

    The "advanced meta-science" department, to be honest, does sound a little bit like what Jonathan Hickman is doing with the Future Foundation over in FF, but it's not like Hickman invented the idea of recruiting super-geniuses either. I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that Lemire does something different with the concept, and I also hope that the Atom finds a home in this title. Lemire was doing great work with the character in his Adventure Comics serial, and it'd be nice to see him with a permanent home somewhere in the DCU. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joey Esposito Feb 8, 2012

    The real saving grace of Superboy #6, as it has been since issue #1, is the work of R.B. Silva. The artist continues to provide solid, definitive line work that showcases character emotion. While his background details are lacking and his depiction of Supergirl's costume is, well, awkward, overall Superboy #6 is another solid piece of work that maintains a unique visual feel for the Super-books. Unfortunately, it's all for naught as the series struggles to find a foothold that's worth shelling out money for. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Feb 13, 2012

    This book might not be the most memorable issue to come out of the relaunch, but it is a nice looking comic. I've been pretty selective in my super-reading, but I might just come back for another peek at this one, especially since Superboy's going to be throwing down with Rose Wilson in the next issue.

    A Comic Book Blog - T. A. Ewart Feb 16, 2012

    If taken on its own measures, Superboy #6 fails to do what a comic should in very basic terms. It's not entertaining. It's not compelling. It doesn't make the reader want to return next issue. If taken in the scope of the New 52 reboot, it's a great example of misdirected energy and the mess that such force makes. Read Full Review

    And just like that, the good grace it received last time goes out the window"completely. With so many problems in the writing and plotting, it just makes to send this title at last to the Dropped List. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Feb 11, 2012

    Superboy #2 never really gains its footing, ricocheting from one fight to the next without a clear narrative, and stuffing a lot of exposition into a few pages, earning a fragmented 2 out of 5 stars overall. It's not a bad comic book, but it's just not a particularly cohesive one, either" Read Full Review
