Reviewer’s Comments:
Remember that really awkward moment from Supergirl #14? Well, there are certainly answers to that in this newest (and best of the series) issue of Superman yet. All writer Scott Lobdell has planning comes to the forefront here, and things really start to get rocky.

After the awkward moment where Supergirl enters into Clark Kent’s life unexpectedly, Superman is introduced finally to H’el. His backstory is introduced, and seems fairly plausible but when our hero starts to break it apart, the reader is left wondering whether this alien is really honest especially considering the physical differences between his so-called “kryptonian brother.” Beyond that, H’el is threatening the life of Superboy because he’s a clone, and is weary of them apparently. This really becomes detrimental to the hero but Superman is there to stop any harm after they battle temporarily.

Scott Lobdell is the best writer to come on this series, and is the creator it was looking for. He is giving this book (and the Superman universe) an awesome direction, and it definitely shows when this doesn’t feel like a forced crossover. It seems more akin to what’s going on with the Bat-books, and reading Superman makes me so sorry for Superboy that I want to pick up that series now. Kenneth Rocafort is someone I cannot forget because he brings energy and his great art style to every panel. It is fantastic to watch it unfold.

I might have to start picking up Superboy if this series keeps getting more awesome……
