    I cant wait to see this saga collected in a trade. It is a real page turner, and having to wait for the next issue to arrive is a real pain. Superman #683 is so good, Im giving it Major Spoilers highest rating of 5 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review

    "New Krypton" is a huge missed opportunity, as far as I'm concerned. Though it's managed to work wonders or Supergirl, the rest of the cast seems worse for the experience. I have low expectations for the finale, and even lower expectations for what is to come afterward. 2008 was a terrific year for Supes, but I already worry 2009 will be anything but. Read Full Review

    Like "The Sinestro Corps War," Geoff Johns has created a small crossover event in "New Krypton" that's mostly told within a few similarly-themed titles. It lacks some of the grandeur of "Sinestro Corps," but it's no less effective as a story structure. "New Krypton" may end by changing the status quo of the DC Universe, or the Kryptonians may just end up back inside a glorified mason jar, but no matter how it ends, a good Superman Family story is being told along the way. And it's been a while since we've had one of those. Read Full Review

    If you can get past the pages of horrible art, this issue's another solid chapter in the story of New Krypton. Read Full Review
