The Story: The newly arrived Kryptonians are becoming a major problem. Though they’ve been ordered to aid Superman by capturing villains from the American prison system, the altercations they get into by doing so leaves many humans dead (or murdered if you want to look at it that way). The sad part about all this is the arrogance and apathetic nature of the Kryptonians.
You’d think after being held in captivity for so long they’d grow to appreciate the lives of others. Here, it seems to not be the case. Despite their best intentions, Superman’s “people” are doing more harm than good.
The Good? The dilemma Superman faces with the Kryptonians is escalating a brisk pace. To be honest, I was expecting a slow simmer, but James Robinson is wasting no time putting forth the threat of these aliens. Also, I’m happy to see that while the Science Police are still fodder, their pressence continues to be a part of this book. The reappearance of Atlas and The Guardian also shed some light on where things may be headed in Metropolis. For $2.99 you’re getting more than your money’s worth with this densely packed, and entertaining story. The art is equally as good.
The Not So Good? Some may complain that too much is going on at once, but that’s how it’s supposed to be. This is a chaotic situation that’s quickly spiraling out of control.
Conclusion: Superman under the hands of James Robinson and Renato Guedes continues to be a stellar title. Get on board before you’re left behind!
