Superboy's team-up with the Cosmoteers is yielding rocky results. While they're taking down many of Dominator X's labs, their team dynamics leave much to be desired. Can this new quartet pull themselves together when Dominator X unleashes his most monstrous creation yet...the hulking Infinity?!

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Jun 20, 2023

    Superboy: The Man of Tomorrow #3 is an energetic adventure. Whilst it is full of epic situations and a Superboy space battle in the beginning, it is also an example of masterful storytelling. Misdirections and shifts in the dialogue add layers to the script, taking a seemingly straightforward story and adding a completely separate tone. It provides the next part of this arc with a huge amount of strength to keep it maintained, with an art style that is not only gorgeous but intelligent too. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Theron Couch Jun 20, 2023

    The adventure plot that this series is built on is fun enough, but Conners character arc is where the meat of the story lies. Superboy Man of Tomorrow #3 complicates that story and raises anticipation for future issues more than either of the first two entries in the series. Read Full Review

    And worse, it looks like he has set up the Cosmoteers to look like murderers. The Corps is on the case. As a long time fan of Conner, I really am appreciating this book. The story is fun. The character beats for Conner are right on target. And the art is perfect for the story. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jun 21, 2023

    The specific novelty of Superboy working with a group of adventurers could wear off in a few issues if Porter continues to take a manga-inspired approach to the ensemble. The writer is clearly telegraphing plot points issues in advance...and those plot points dont seem to be all that interesting. Hes going to have to find a fresh approach to old sci-fi ensemble tropes if hes going to continue to navigate relatively fresh territory with this particular Superboy. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jun 20, 2023

    The action scenes are a lot of fun, with Superboy using some powers and techniques he hasn't in a long time. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Jun 13, 2023

    Superboy: The Man of Tomorrow #3 gives you all the basics of what you want out of a Conner Kent comic. You get big action, strong dialog, plot twists, and great art. Unfortunately, the issue lacks heart, and Conner is the least interesting aspect of this comic. Read Full Review

  • 6.0 - Nicole Drum Jun 21, 2023

    The issue feels like it's missing a lot of its emotional core, something that makes the surprising twist near the end a little hollow where it's supposed to feel ominous. Read Full Review
