As evidence of Krypton’s environmental precarity mounts, the ruling council fights even harder to hide behind the myth of utopia. But a refusal to confront the problem is truly a refusal to attempt a solution! Zod is determined to force their hands and turns to his old friend Jor-El for backup, but their methods may be too dissimilar.

    After Jor-El is named head of the Council, we have a couple of pages of the wilderness on Krypton. We see a field of bones of animals. We see rivers of what looks like Kryptonite lava. And we see some sort of science platform nearby. Is that just to show us how far gone the planet is? How Jor-El found his data? Or is this some plot thread we'll see next issue. Read Full Review

    This series is only halfway in, but there's a good chance that it could become the defining story of Krypton. Read Full Review

    It doesn't manage to deliver the same highs as earlier issues, but the elevation of Jor-El and a cliffhanger suggest there's still gas in the tank as World of Krypton continues. Read Full Review

    Not as good as issue two, but I feel like there's something here.

    Venditti is very hit-and-miss. His Hawkman was really great, probably the best run for the character ever since Johns but a lot of the times he's just bad and this is the case here. I knew ever since the first panels of the first issue we're not going to escape a little bit of climate change alarmism and that he just won't leave Krypton's destruction being its own thing. No, he just had to go for it, he couldn't resist the stupid urge not to make it about that. What's more awful is that he seems to go full crazy implying that we should go the austerity way which, you know, when you're living in US it's easy to imply but some people cannot afford that austerity because they're already at the edge of it so condemning them to more austerity wo more

    So they have this amazing cover art done for both the regular cover and variant covers then when you open the book the art is absolute garbage. Talk about a bait and switch. This whole series is a mess in terms of art, shame as the story isn't that bad but art takes your right out of it. Save your money kids.
