Superboy: The Boy of Steel

Geoff Johns, the superstar writer who is known for resurrecting heroes returns Superboy to comics. Superboy was died during Infinite Crisis while battling Superboy Prime. His death was felt through out the DC universe through the pages of Teen Titans, 52 and Robin. Similar to the "Man of Steel" Superboy return from death in the pages Final Crisis: Legion of 3 Worlds. (Pick it up.)

This book shows Superboy with a new outlook on life. Geoff Johns and artist Francis Manapul do a good job of portraying this. The page where Conner (Superboy's name) Martha Kent and Krypto are gazing at Smallville's beautiful sky is awe inspiring. Gone is the cocky and over confident Superboy from Young Justice. This is a young man who is happy just to have a second chance at life. You actually can appreciate Conner's new outlook on life. He is smiling while flying, he is playing with the dog that he once hated and is happy to be in the town he once resented.

The book is not all sunshine and smiles. Conner is back but must find his place in the world. The expectations are high for him. He shares the DNA of the world's greatest hero (Superman) and greatest criminal mind (Lex Luthor). There is a fork in the road and which path will Conner walk down? Plus what happens when Luthor finds out his "son" has return?

As I said before this book is great because it tells a tale of redemption. Geoff and Francis capture everything perfectly. The writing is great and even though these are beings with superpowers their problems and emotions are very real. Superboy is no different than a regular teenager trying to figure out what type of adult will they become? When he reunites with friends, he sees how his death has affected them.

The art is great in this book. If you are a stranger of Francis Manapul you won't be for long. He is the artist on the new Flash series. In this book though what stands out the most is who he portrays emotions. If it is Superboy flying while smiling as if he is just happy to be alive. Ma Kent looking at an old picture of her dearly departed husband Johnathan Kent. Lex Luthor's sinister smirk or the cold emotionless stare of Brainiac Francis does a fantastic job. There is even a scene where Superboy and members of the Teen Titans stand together and you can't help but notice how this kids have grown since Young Justice. Francis gives these characters a since of realism that is usually void in a superhero book.

We all don't get second chances but when you read this you can't help but root for Superboy. What will Superboy do with his second chance at life? Purchase this book and find out.

5.0 su 5 stelle Another keeper from Mr. Johns 16 giugno 2010

This is about Conner's search for personal identity. Nature vs nurture. Who is he? How much does he behave like his genetic donors? Is his behavior and nature influenced by them? How is he like and unlike Superman and Lex Luthor? What kind of man does he want to be?

This is one of those happy books where I enjoyed both the story line & the art. It's going on my keeper shelf. I would recommend it to any fan of Superboy. I can't wait for the next book. (I'm assuming that this is one of a series because there were several secondary matters introduced and then left unresolved. The book felt like a setup for a series.) I greatly enjoyed this book, but had a few minor quibbles.


Liked: Conner makes the Kent Farm his base as he rediscovers himself and tries to decide who he is. He catches up with old friends, Tim and Cassie, and makes some new acquaintances. Conner tries to be a better son to Ma Kent, and find his place in the world. I was charmed by the scenes of Conner bonding with his dog. Conner also reestablishes his relationships with Cassie and Tim. There's one brief, but amusing exchange, between Conner and Bart.

I would've liked to see a little more of Bart, Cassie, and Tim, and a little less of some of the new characters. The main story consists of Conner measuring his behavior against the behaviors of Superman and Lex Luthor, and wondering how much he is like and unlike each. Conner has encounters with both Superman and Luthor.

Minor Quibble: While I admire the honesty and forthrightness of Cassie and Tim's confessions to Conner, as well as Conner's generosity of spirit in his responses to them, it seems to me that matters are smoothed over too quickly and easily in order to advance the main story arc. In fact, I think that Tim confessing his attempt to clone a Conner 2.0 would have advanced the identity story line. I would expect this to be a very big deal for anyone and an even bigger deal for Conner considering his particular identity issues, but Conner's reaction is very mild.

Also no matter how understandable it was for Cassie and Tim to seek comfort from each other after Conner's 'death', or how unfair it would be for Conner to blame them for any comforting taking place between them while he was 'dead', I would expect Conner to have more of a reaction to Cassie's confession that she had been comfort snogging his best friend. Instead Conner promptly forgives all. He brushes both cloning and best friend snogging aside with very little reaction.

Maybe he was feeling numb. Maybe it didn't really hit him. Maybe those two lamas seemed like baby lamas after his 'death' and revivification. But it's not addressed and the reader is left to guess at his feelings and wonder about his muted reactions. I can understand if Mr. Johns had no wish to ride those particular drama lama, but once drama lamas are introduced into a story, characters need to react to them.

On the whole, I enjoyed this story very much and hope to see more Superboy books from Mr. Johns as well as more books illustrated by Francis Manapul.

I have been a big fan of Superboy ever since one of my friends gave me his whole collection from Superboy's Hawaiian days, it was just something a little different from the other comics. This collection is the same, it was great to hear they brought him back in the comics. I have not been enjoying comics now days, most of them are garbage, but I enjoyed this one. I'd say the only con is that at the end you want to read more, but there's no more yet!

If you want to know what it's about then buy it, i'm not going to give it away. There's not really a huge plot here, but it was a fun read, 5 stars!

I've been a fan of Superboy way back from the beginning, when he was first introduced after the apparent death of Superman at the hands of Doomsday. (Death of Superman The Return of Superman) Back then he was a cocky, brash little hero, insisting that everyone call him Superman. But he was still a great character. (!!! MINOR SPOILERS!!!) Over the years he's joined Young Justice, and then the Teen Titans. He's fallen in love, with Wonder Girl no less, and even died at the hands of Superboy Prime. But, he was brought back to life by a Kryptonian Healing Chrysalis far in the future, and now he's back. (Final Crisis: Legion of Three Worlds) (!!!END SPOILERS!!!) So this book picks up with him trying to put the pieces of his life back together, and trying to find out the core of his identity, which he finds challenging. On one hand, he's made from the cloned material of Superman. On the other, he's made from the cloned material of Lex Luthor. One, humanity's greatest hero, and the other, arguably one of the world's worst villains. So Superboy sets out to find what is at the core of his personality, which he does with a list of the things Superman did to become the hero he is, and the things Lex STILL does that makes him a villain. It's a journey of self discovery, that takes place on the Kent farm where Conner has decided to live with Ma Kent, at Smallville high and in Smallville itself, and even halfway across the globe. There are MANY great and touching moments between Conner and Ma, and especially between Conner and the dog Krypto, who is just one of the most adorable characters in comics. The book was an adventure and yet had many charming and romantic moments in it as well. I especially loved the scenes with Conner and Wonder Girl, and with Conner and the former Robin, Tim Drake, now acting as Red Robin. I can't begin to tell you how much this book ties in with ALL of Geoff Johns' other books, but he does it masterfully and effortlessly. Bottom line, I enjoyed this IMMENSELY, and I look forward to Volume 1 of the Superboy series that kicked off in the aftermath of this story. (Superboy Vol. 1: Smallville Attacks) If you like the Superman mythos, and Superboy in particular, the you will love this book. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Thanks so much for your time folks.
Sincerely, R.A. McDowell
4.0 su 5 stelle A fun reintroduction to Superboy!! 26 marzo 2011

If you can get by the convoluted premise of Superboy's crazy history, this book is really good. The plot by Geoff Johns is low key and he gives Conner a great voice and personality. It is reminiscent of Peter Parker in Ultimate Spider-Man. The connection to the Luthor family is very interesting and I look forward to seeing where that goes. Francis Manapul's art was amazing. It has a softness and an edge at the same time. Its spectacular! Overall, this is a book that you should definitely check out!
