    To sum things up, out of all the Superman creative teams, I think Robinson and Guedes are doing the most effective job of both progressing New Krypton and making it entertaining. This is most likely do in some part to the random way this story has been broken down, but this writer/artist duo still deserves credit for being the most in sync of the New Krypton creative teams.

    I have found the Superman titles more compelling leading up to "New Krypton" and have been enjoying this storyline to this point. I firmly believe this story will read much better collected, but have still found it engaging in floppy form. I find it a little hard to believe six chapters of "New Krypton" have passed by, as it doesn't seem like a great deal has occurred, but to the converse of that, I have obviously enjoyed those chapters enough to continue to this point. Looking forward, there's going to be some more scuffles, focusing on Kryptonian loyalty and perceptions of right and wrong. Read Full Review

    Superman #682 was another entertaining installment of the New Krypton story. Robinson certainly cranks up the intensity with this issue as several plotlines move forward and, more importantly, the divide between Superman and his fellow Kryptonians finally surfaces in a dramatic fashion. If you have not given the New Krypton story a chance then I definitely would recommend picking this story up when it comes out in trade paperback format. Read Full Review

    Superman #684 will feature the epilogue to the New Krypton story, so there are still several more chapters to be told in this tale. I'm sticking around for everyone of them, as I'm now fully invested in this tale. Superman #682 does well enough to earn a 3.5 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review

    Okay! But now I have to wait two weeks for the next New Krypton issue, Action Comics 872. And I can't be certain that any of the questions raised by Action Comics 871, Supergirl 35, or Superman 682 will be answered. What if they just switch scenes again, and start up yet another thread? Will I keep reading, or drift away to something more satisfying? Read Full Review
