    This series has grown beyond its must read event status. With its depth of storytelling, complexity of plot, and the incredible scope of its art, this series is one of the best superhero reads of the decade. It continues to reinforce and reestablish why Superman is still the greatest superhero of them all. Read Full Review

    For some reason, Pete Woods art felt a little rushed this issue. It was not as smooth as I have seen it in the past. Woods is still a notch above the usual artist, even when rushed. Three more issues. I wonder how far this story gets before the series ends. Read Full Review

    Maybe it's because "Superman: World of New Krypton" stars Superman instead of Mon-El or Nightwing & Flamebird, but there's no doubt that "Superman: World of New Krypton" is the most entertaining of the three Superman books being published right now. With four issues to go, I'm sorry to see its end approaching, but it's been a thoroughly enjoyable ride. Read Full Review

    World of New Krypton continues to satisfy, but Rucka and Robinson may be trying to fit too much into one year of stories. Read Full Review

    There isn't necessarily much wrong with this issue aside from the aforementioned flaws. The central problem with issue #8 is that there simply isn't enough material there. The series practically demands a quicker, more eventful pace right now, both because of the fallout of "Codename: Patriot" and the simple fact that only four issues remain. Superman is an outcast from Earth and a reluctant leader of a planet that barely trusts him. Why is he wasting his time chasing moons? World of New Krypton has just experienced its most boring chapter yet at a time when it should be reaching new heights of storytelling. When the series isn't dealing directly with the tensions between Earth and New Krypton, it seems content to feature a revolving door of DC power players. I hope Rucka and Robinson have something more in mind for the final four issues. World of New Krypton has remained the most intriguing of Superman books, but I could easily envision a scenario where that no longer holds true. Read Full Review
