Superman: New Krypton Vol. 1 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
A follow-up from where Superman: Brainaic left off; where our hero finds himself amoung others from his home world, now on his adopted world, and a beginning that will change the status quo. Geof Johns continues his journey of the Man of Steel for 21st century, with a bold new twist as a writer; while Gary Frank's illustrations give a new creative look at the world of Superman.
Meh. I'm a big fan of Geoff Johns, James Robinson, Gary Frank, etc. Though not a committed reader of the Superman titles, I still am up on the general story, characters, locales, etc. That said, this didn't do much for me. A Volume 1 should pull you in and make you want to read the next volume immediately. Not so, here.
