    The annual is most certainly an interlude, but it does something that was neglected all too often with Superman and Superboy, previous to the New 52. We get to see them adventure together, but also bond together through the adventure. The juxtaposition of Superboy in Superman's costume, and Superman dressed as Superboy is also very endearing, as links them in a manner that was rarely done before, if ever, by showing us just how much of the past is prologue. These days, Clark was never Superboy, but his adventures in Action Comics are exactly that, Superboy adventures, and the annual matches up to that dynamic by showing us the differences in the two characters, and why a homemade weapon like Superboy, would look up to a “lecturer” like Superman. All in all, a fine annual . . . even if it is an interlude. Read Full Review

    And, most of all, it just doesn't progress H'El on Earth at all. Still, Superboy seems to be moving along on his hero's journey while Supergirl is taking some steps back. Read Full Review
