It's the moment you've been waiting for: the shocking return of the son of Superman! A year spent traveling the stars changed Jon Kent. Are parents Clark and Lois ready for the all-new, all-different Superboy? Secrets are revealed, a new look debuts and Superman's world is changed forever!

Ive read it& I don’t think it’s that bad. I‘m glad Supermans son is finally older& since he’s calling himself Superboy now I hope they kill the kid off soon& go back to status quo with Lois and Clark. Seriously have read so much worse stories than this.

i'll bet they wouldn't just stop at Jon. they'd off Lois too, just to be edgy. check out the latest Superman Walmart comic.

John Constantine and Batman just... fit together nicely, conceptually, at least. One is a cynical, sarcastic dick, and the other is a bruting, cold introvert. There's a lot of potential for such team-up, mixing street vigilantism with magic and demons. Too bad these two, every time they appear in the same place in the same time and interact, don't have anything valuable to say. Justice League Dark more

Another non-issue, barely even acknowledges the overarching plot. Devotes too much focus on a construct of Batman’s mind in the shape of Constantine, why that is a thing is more interesting than this entire issue and it’s a shame it will never be touched on.

this series is all over the place, with no rhyme or reason.

there were no real clues in the last two issues to even tie all this together.
it’s just feels like a series of non related one-shots.

another pointless issue that ultimately went nowhere.

If I were to describe this issue with one word I would use the word "uneventful" because there is nothing practically happening in this one. At least the story is starting to get somewhere.

Yep. When I first read the title, I thought it was the OTHER Superman/Lois Lane controversy from HiC, then I realized it was about the Walmart specials. Read the first two issues of this series, and I thought it was pretty okay. I missed issue 5 and haven't found it anywhere else, so I have this one, but haven't read it. I've skimmed through it. Looks pretty dark. The writer of this article clearly didn't understand the obvious kids-gearing all the titles in this 100-page giant have had.
