CONNER KENT TAKES CENTER STAGE! After the events of Dark Crisis, Conner feels out of place with the rest of the hero community. He doesn't fit in with the rest of the Superman Family, and the rest of the world doesn't really need him with so many Supers in Metropolis. He doesn't want to rely on Tim, Cassie, and Bart, so Conner looks to the stars as a place he might be able to call his own and carve out his own path. But what lurks in the great unknown? Are bravado and swagger enough to help Superboy find his new calling? This is the 2022 Round Robin winner-picked by you, the fans!

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Apr 18, 2023

    Superboy: The Man of Tomorrow #1 is a great example of how to give a character space. Earth may have been too crowded for another ultra-powerful Kryptonian, but there is a whole multiverse in need of hope. All of the creators involved are top-class, filling every page with joy and energy. It is great to see Superboy at the helm of his own comic again. Read Full Review

    Get Your Comic On - Neil Vagg Apr 19, 2023

    Conner's solo return quickly proves it was worth the wait. Capitalising on his new status as a character out of place in the universe is the perfect starting point for creating a new legacy for the original Superboy. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Apr 18, 2023

    Man of Tomorrows debut definitely warrants a look for Superboy and Young Justice fans specifically and readers who want a pleasantly fun story. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Theron Couch Apr 19, 2023

    Superboy: The Man of Tomorrow #1 is a high energy first issue that delivers a lot of fun. The issue makes much more effective use of Jons difficulties reconnecting with this world than has recently been done. The story elements are direct and simple (as is the art at times). But its easy for the reader to quickly invest in Jon and his compelling story. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Apr 18, 2023

    Superboy: The Man Of Tomorrow #1 is a very strong start to a Conner-centric story about the Kryptonian clone looking for his place in the world (or galaxy). The writing and art are both rock-solid, except for an odd consistency issue with the art, and the adventure holds your interest. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Apr 18, 2023

    Overall, it's a fun start that does a good job with a very messy status quo for a cult-favorite hero. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Apr 19, 2023

    Superboy: The Man of Tomorrow #1 is a good start. While it doesn't totally blow me away, it's a fun time and left me wanting to see what happens next. Overall, this may play better with Conner fans but for those new to the character it does an excellent job of catching readers up and setting him along his adventure. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Tony Thornley Apr 21, 2023

    I would love to see this series improve and bring back the Superboy of old. Even if it doesn't, it at least promises a lot of fun, and that's pretty damn important. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Apr 22, 2023

    Good, solid start for this new series, with a strong focus on the main character. Nothing really explosive or mind-blowing as of yet, just a nice set up issue to kick things off. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Jonathan Cadotte Apr 22, 2023

    Superboy: The Man of Tomorrow #1 doesn't do enough to set itself apart from other Super-Family books, but it is buoyed by strong artistic showing from Jahnoy Lindsay. Read Full Review

  • 6.0 - Nicole Drum Apr 19, 2023

    Superboy: The Man of Tomorrow #1 isn't a bad comic. It's an easy read and it's one that fans of Conner Kent will be excited about as it's nice to see the character back in action and in his own story. Unfortunately, it's a story that feels like it needs a more focused direction. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Ben Morin Apr 18, 2023

    I came away from this debut mildly amused. The story made for a light, breezy read, but the final page tease didn't grab me for next month. I wish I felt more attached to this series, but besides the nostalgia factor, I didn't find much to latch onto. For fans of Connor, I'm sure his return here will be a welcome addition to the ever-expanding Superman line. I think at this point, DC is aiming for a Superman book for everyone. This one just didn't happen to be for me. Read Full Review
