Conner’s been left for dead on a planet far out in the cosmos. With his teleportation band broken, he has no way of getting in touch with Kelex or telling the Green Lantern Corps what Travv’s master plan is. He’ll need to find a way off this world if he’s going to stop Travv, but even if he does, can he really make a difference in this cold, harsh universe?

    An already strong series hits an even higher note here. What seemed like a straightforward adventure with a predictable arc and ending became something more complex. Superboy: The Man of Tomorrow #5 gives the series a deeper character arc and punctuates it as a true story of self-discovery. Read Full Review

    This is an interesting mini, primarily driven by a relatable question of what to do when you no longer fit into your familybut given a gonzo sci-fi edge that's a lot of fun. Read Full Review

    If you needed to know that one of the themes of this book is Conner fighting himself, this ending hits you over the head with it. Can a Kryptonian clone built to be a living weapon defeat a ... well ... a Kryptonian clone built to be a living weapon but who has also developed a conscience and a heroic persona.  Nice cliffhanger. Things are set up for a finale. And I am really enjoying this 'coming of age' plot! Read Full Review

    While Superboy: The Man of Tomorrow is still very much trying to fit itself into the same general space that Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow did for Kara, this deep into the series and despite its general messiness, there's a lot of really good work that Kenny Porter is doing with Conner and his own dark journey of self discovery.

    Next issue wraps this mini-series up although it's feeling like this is more of a side quest that won't mean much when Connor returns to Earth. Read Full Review

    This is a solid issue. Conner finally finds the balance of who he is. Not the boy of the past, but not quite the man of tomorrow (working towards it though). It is nice to see how he inspires hope and how he might be a bit different yet similar to others in the super family.

    Trav is insane by the point and the fight is pretty good overall. Nice art, brings it together well.

    All in all, we know the final issue will be an epic fight in a superboy version of Superman vs Cyborg Superman (Trav just wont die it seems). Nice to see him find his way and prove himself without having the Super Family come in a save the day. This is his fight and he is giving it his all/coming to terms with himself.
