Quote:SUPERMAN: WORLD OF NEW KRYPTON #6 (OF 12)
Quote:By the time the its-about-time anticipated last page swEEt surprise splash where its obvious that Superman is going to come out of the closet it was too little too late. More detailed delving into Kryptonian culture for the sixth issue in a row just didnt cut it for me. Think'll probably pass on the last half of the maxi at cover. Eep, 6 months w/o Superman?! Hmmm.. Thangarians in #8 miiight be something to see...
Quote:And the Alura shaking after public speaking seemed like a mistake. This is the same scary mother- of Kara that has been more bossy than some really funny bossy reference.
Quote:My guess is that the assassin was sponsored by Gor, Ursa, Alura or ZOd himself based on nothing but years of comicbooks.
Yeah I agree, there are some odd moments in this issue like that.
It's a pretty generic 'court inrigue' sort of series, political machinations and the like in place of any significant action... Kal-el has certainly assumed control very easily hasn't he?
I can't quite see what the purpose of this series is, is New Krypton being built up to be a real force in the DC universe or is this supposed to be a study of what makes Kal-el unique despite all these new supermen...?
I'll be well annoyed if the series' mission statement
isn't made very apparent by the time this series winds up.
Well, I dont think it'll last very long. If theres a whole planet of "sophiscated" kryptonian aliens. Anyone with any sense would know that there would be more than a few like the couple featured in the other super books, that would be like hey, lets go to earth, where basically no one but other superheros can touch us. They would blend in so easily they would be able to be alot more super villians, than heros spawned by these kandorians. I do like this whole story line, but it seems like its just going no where.
