    Little else will. Looking back on this issue and where it leaves the franchise, I'm hard-pressed to think of any significant status quo difference between now and the Superman books circa-2006. Was this all New Krypton was meant to lead us to? I think the most readers who devoted two years to this saga can hope for is that the franchise does touch on what few plot threads still linger. Superman's reintroduction to the world should not be an easy journey. As dull and plodding as New Krypton was at times, the story deserves better than to be forgotten two months after it wraps.

    When the story ends, there is one less Lane on the planet, and a significant decrease in the perceived Kryptonian threat. There are stories left to be told of Kryptonians, of the Super-family, of the survivors of this tale, but those are clearly for another day. This issue is all about the final minutes of the "Hundred Minute War." Read Full Review

    Despite the low Ranking and poor verdict, the majority of this issue is a fun actionpacked conclusion to what has generally been an enjoyable storyline. Unfortunately, the reliance on the Phantom Zone yet again and the disturbing suicide of General Lane nearly ruin this issue for me. I just can't overlook the lack of creativity and the desperate attempts at cheap emotional reactions. When you add in the inconsistent art, I can't justify Ranking this one any higher.
