    Conner's solo outing is a series that highlights the strengths of the entire creative team. It's also grown in complexity as it's gone on. Superboy: The Man of Tomorrow #4 is an exciting and emotional journey that fans of the Superman family can't miss. Read Full Review

    Superboy: The Man of Tomorrow #4 turns a typical slugfest into a surprisingly complex moral and ethical dilemma for Conner Kent. From practically every angle, Conner is in a no-win scenario. We like to see these stories because they force the characters to evolve and grow. If Porter can stick the landing, this series may be the sleeper hit of the year. Read Full Review

    Nice ending, contrasting Superboy again from the Cosmoteers. So a decently meaty issue with significant plot progression and character beats. The art complements the story so much. This has been a pleasant addition to my reads. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jul 12, 2023

    The casual brutality at the end of the issue is a bit intense. Its understandable, though, given the fact that its the end of the fourth issue of a six-issue mini-series. Porter has to end Act Two with a big hit to the hero that will be completely resolved by the end of Act Three in issue #6. Theres a death in this issue, though, that hits like a hammer and almost seems to come out of nowhere. Porter didnt have to do that, but the effect is actually really impressive. Lindsay does such a brilliant job of framing that death. Its a powerful moment that serves as one of the more powerful single events in the series thus far. Read Full Review

    This issue to me was the make it or break it issue. We had been building up to something and Porter had to deliver in this issue or the story was going to be 6 issues of nothing.

    Well he did it. We knew the Cosmonaughts were up to no good, and not just 'poor innocent rebels', but man did he deliver and cranked it up to 11. Violation of basic free will? Big Bad Slaughtered in unethical ways? Green Lantern brutally murdered (this was a shock but added impact)? Really putting Conner in a terrible spot? Yes to all of the above.

    While the ending is a bit off, I think they did what they did to be cruel? At least it worded it like that otherwise it would have been more logical just to kill him. But as they say... overconfid more
