There’s a lot going on under the surface in Superboy, it’s not just about a clone dealing with a voyage of discovery like you might think at first, but there’s a larger story about NOWHERE going on, and it’s clear that Lobdell has a plan for where all of this is going. We know it involves Caitlin Fairchild and eventually the rest of Gen13, which is cool. Superboy and Gen13 are both very much products of the 1990s, so it makes a lot of sense to pair them up. There’s also Rose Wilson, and in this issue we got our first mention of ‘Ravager’ and it seems like there’s more to it than it just being her codename, and what does it have to do with ‘the culling’? That creepy couple at the end mentioned it too, and it’s cool to see Lobdell setting this stuff up in a fairly subtle way. RB Silva’s art continues to be excellent, I especially liked the scene where Templar intimidated Dr Umber, that was very well done. This book is moving a bit too slowly though I think, they set up a confrontation with the Teen Titans #1 but it still hasn’t happened! Get to it!

I'd like to see them take the opportunity to create some new characters and flesh out 13 people in Gen 13.
