"The Third Kryptonian" part 1! A year ago, Superman learned of another Kryptonian on Earth. Now the hunt goes into overdrive, as the Metropolis Marvel and the Dark Knight Detective's search takes them from China to Gotham City to California and more.

    While Busiek spends a lot of time on the parenting relationship during this issue, he does indeed expand on the mystery surrounding the third Kryptonian. While he spends a great deal of time exploring the father/son relationship and interaction with Batman, knowing Busiek everything will come into play at some point. Im very interested to see where Busiek goes with the new Superwoman and how this storyline will play out. Read Full Review

    It's still early in this arc, so I'll let these complaints slide, but one of my major beefs with comics is the contrived villain appearing out of no where as a viable threat or mysterious person / friend / family member being revealed to the character despite not seeing or hearing about it for years our time. Hopefully Busiek will be able to pull this mystery villain from Krypton's past off in future issues as I am really enjoying the beginning of this arc and looking forward to more. I'm also glad to see more of Chris, as he had fallen to the wayside with the delays in the Zod storyline. Some great moments between the big two in this issue and definitely worth a read for anyone with even the most superficial knowledge of the current Superman titles. Read Full Review

    The art, by Rick Leonardi, seems rushed and a bit rough in many places, making me temporarily wish "Camelot Falls" had dragged on for just one more issue, if only so we could get one final look at Carlos Pacheco's awesome take on the Big Boy Scout. Read Full Review
