I like GotG more than Nova. Nova needs more Rocket Raccoon.

Superman: World of New Krypton #1

I was going to actually put this in my colomn this week, but I'll do it here instead.

In one simple word: "and..." I've been looking forward to this part of the New Krypton Arc for a while now. Robinson and Rucka are two of my favorites. It's also very hard to judge a first issue in most cases since it is mostly set up. But this issue left me thinking, "... and..."

Nothing that we probably didn't see coming. Still, I find the concept of this story to be fascinating, and I'm still sold on it. The art is very nice as well.

Having stuck through Superman for a while now, I have a lot invested in this story, so I'm here for the duration. However, if I was a brand new reader jumping on, I'd probably be less them impressed.

Story: 6
Art: 8

My Score: 7

The only thing by Rucka I've liked-loved was his 5 page story in the President Lex story.
