    But Why Tho? - William Tucker May 16, 2023

    Superboy: The Man of Tomorrow #2 is utterly brilliant from start to finish. Brimming with action and storytelling, the comic feels like a long read due to just how much content inside. Its a space adventure that is stunning to look at and has energy rippling out of every page. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Theron Couch May 16, 2023

    Superboy: The Man of Tomorrow #2 is a fun, action packed issue. It also very effectively continues the main theme Porter set up in the previous issue of Conner finding his place in the world and opens up additional possibilities for where Porter could take this story. Most importantly the series remains an excellent showcase for the character and one that readers curious about Conner should check out. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez May 16, 2023

    Superboy: The Man of Tomorrow #2 is a respectable follow-up issue wherein Connor Kent is forced to confront his self-doubt and "heroes" with a faulty moral compass. Porter's writing is solid from start to finish, and Lindsay's art is excellent. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj May 24, 2023

    If this is a journey of self-discovery, this is a great moment to end the issue on. After a whole issue talking about Superman and Supergirl and the House of El, he finally talks about being himself. This is a fun issue and what is turning into a fun series. If you like Conner and have missed him, this feels classic but is also pushing his character forward. That works for me. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield May 16, 2023

    This Superboy is a throwback to his 1990s incarnation, complete with leather jacket and a whole lot of sass. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles May 16, 2023

    Superboy was a character who warranted a new title, but this feels more like an effort to make the Cosmoteers a viable new entry in the DC Universe instead of focusing on the under-appreciated Superboy. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu May 16, 2023

    As someone who thought wed see Conner find his place amongst another group of clones similar to him, its weird to see the direction Porter has taken this comic so quickly. Its shocking to see the about-face one can make after being only two issues into Superboy: The Man of Tomorrow. Readers, I was all in after issue one. And now, with the wicked tonal switch, I think I might be done with the comic. Let me know what you think, have a great week, and God Bless! Read Full Review

    Superboy: The Man of Tomorrow #2 feels, tonally, like a series that doesn't know exactly what it wants to be. Read Full Review
