Perhaps due to the fact that I was reading it without also reading Teen Titans, and also probably due to other facts, Superboy has been a very uneven title. Characters and villains have appeared from and disappeared to nowhere, and the setting of the title has veered wildly. This Zero issue however attempts to make some sense of what’s been going on with the book, and it sort of works. The issue is mainly narrated by the villain ‘Harvest’ who as I said before, showed up out of nowhere, and reveals how he manipulated the events of the last 12 issues. This includes revisiting scenes from #1 and #2 and others. Do we know who the heck this Harvest guy is? How does he know so much about Kryptonian History? It doesn’t matter I suppose, because those scenes, with the original ‘Kon’ were the highlights of this comic. We are slowly being fed information about the Krypton of the New 52, and it’s very interesting to me. I like that clones are a controversial issue for Kryptonians, and you can tell that, unlike some other New 52 books, the writers have a plan, the stuff here lines up with what happened in Supergirl. One other thing, the lengths they are going to avoid saying that Superboy is half Lex Luthor is ridiculous, we all know it already!

Harvest has some very top-secret info on the Legionnaires, and a time-bubble and tech from their era. I suspect based on his appearance that he might be

An interesting and mysterious tie-in to today's Supergirl #0 now brings these points up again !
Things may not be as clear cut as we thought :shock: 8)
