    Overall, as Ive said before, Superman: World of New Krypton, is destined to be the classic, and defining, tale of this era of Superman comics. If anyone out there ever wondered why Superman is such an enduring and loved character by his fans, pick up this series. Youll understand why. Read Full Review

    As for the issue's surprising climax, I'm not sure how I feel about it other than I sincerely doubt it's exactly as it appears. As a cliffhanger and jaw dropping left turn, though, it works just fine. All in all, World of New Krypton #5 is an excellent character study of hero and villain, with an unexpected betrayal, a slice of Kryptonian culture and a major development thrown into the mix as added bonuses. This series is slowly elbowing its way to the head of the pack of Superman titles, and when all is said and done it's likely to stand as the most memorable of the "World Without a Superman" direction.

    Ultimately, this series has to do a better job making me believe that Superman would put himself in this situation. It has to make me care about Kal-El's plight and the affect on those around him. Even the twist ending of this issue merely offers the promise of more political maneuverings, and that's just not enough. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - DS Arsenault Jul 9, 2009

    This was a fair issue, but the arc has been losing steam since the high point the creative team hit with issue #3. In fact, it barely feels like the arc has been completed at all, except that next month, the first part of the next arc is starting. Read Full Review
