    Weekly Comic Book Review - DS Arsenault Jun 4, 2009

    I was really pumped up by the first three issues. After the climactic hostage stand-off and the fight between Gor and Kal-El last issue, I was expecting the same pace in this one. It's a good book, but it doesn't reach the peak achieved in the last issue. Read Full Review

    Mania - Chris Smits Jun 9, 2009

    Every issue of this series has been very solid so far and as long as they can keep that up, I'll keep recommending it. Pete Woods seems to be making a good mark for himself with the art. He's consistant with his style and that really gives this book it's own feel, creating a fimiliarity when you open it up to the first page. Once again I have to point out the $2.99 price point here and say that it's more solid than a lot of it's more expensive cousins on the rack. World Of New Krypton isn't what I'd label as "jaw droppingly awesome", but it's undeniably up in the B range, and that's the grade I'm giving it. Read Full Review

    IGN - Dan Phillips Jun 3, 2009

    And then there's the lingering annoyance of the Superman line's snail-like pace. Yes, this is the one series that's currently pushing Superman's story forward, and yes, Rucka and Robinson are managing to highlight their central rift in entertaining ways. Still, considering how long it's taken for us to get to the development seen on this issue's last page, I feel like the franchise is still treading water to a certain extent. Hopefully the pace will pick up next installment, and Rucka and Robinson will avoid reverting the Superman/Zod dynamic to the standstill in issue's past and for the majority of this one.

    Comics Bulletin - Chris Murman Jun 8, 2009

    This issue didnt really accomplish much in the grand scheme of things, but this is a 12 issue series. I enjoyed the three previous issues for the most part; I just got assigned to this title on an off month. I hope we continue to peel away layers around Zod and find out what he really wants now that hes out of prison for good. We all know the final confrontation is between the two military guild heavyweights, I just hope this round is a doozy. Read Full Review

    Perhaps the next issue will turn things around, but so far this book has just been average at best. In other words, "Meh." Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Jun 4, 2009

    I'm actually having a hard time thinking of anything good to say about this issue. It's like they tried their best to do the absolute worst story possible for something that should have been a homerun with the Green Lanterns checking up on this new planet full of Supermenlevel beings.
