    Fun story, similar to Baltazar and Franco's other comics, but loosely based on the Smallville TV series and a 13-year-old Clark who rescues townsfolk as the "Superman of Smallville". Considering how well this format does for Raina, this hopefully works out better for Baltazar-Franco than their floppy minis for $3 or $4 only available at comic shops. A few unresolved plot threads in this book suggest they want to do more in this series. Seems funny that Clark's called Superman here at 13 years old, but whatever. Tom Welling always looked 10 years older than he was supposed to be.
