My vitrol is more entertaining (and more honest) than yours.
I think this is just payback for writing that glowing Earth One review. The Marvel Fanboy in you has been ill for days.

I'm honored to be in such excellent company. But this isn't about animal characters, I could give a shit less about that. It's about taking a popular concept, Superman, and creating various versions of Superman, but one's a girl, and one's a boy, and one's a fucking dog. A fucking dog, man.

And the name Superboy is just kinda pedoerotic in any case.

Maybe you just don't like super hero comics and should just start reading Guy Delisle travelougue comics instead.

Because he's a Hipster, he probably already does.

although Deadpool Corps uses multiple dimensions, so if it is a "parody" it is a weak one. Hell, this must mean you think Exiles is the worst book, ever.

I don't think that people who like Superboy are doing it ironically, it's not like he's from the Silver-Age, he's from like 1992, which is too recent to be 'hokey'. And his current incarnation is even more recent, if he was still in his leather jacket, round shades and fade haircut, then maybe you'd have a point, but there's nothing ironic about Superboy post-Johns.

Superboy #1

I love Superboy. I loved him in YJ and while I wasn't keen on Johns' handling of him in Teen Titans the revelation of his 'parentage' adds an interesting angle to the Teen of steel. (People call him that right?) His original ongoing was a nice little book that I've dipped in and out of, and this could be an interesting follow-up. Fair warning: I'm gonna use the word 'nice' a lot here.

I'm coming at the title blind, but I like the supporting cast and I like Kon trying to have a normal life for a little while. I don't like Krypto though, never have. Putting these prejudices aside for a minute I thought this comic was a pretty good one. Nice use of Superboy's powers, nice internal monologue and I'm never sad to see the Phantom Stranger.

The art is nice. It doesn't stand out as blindingly good but the use of Jamie Grant's colours make the whole package reminiscent of a more down-to-Earth All Star Superman and that's as fine a compliment as a Superman title can get.

A nice little package. A lot of things I like with a solid writer and a not-terrible artist. One to watch I think.
