It's not easy being Superboy. Aside from having 'boy' in his name, he's still trying make sense of who he is and where he belongs. The recent events from H'el On Earth weren't too much of a help either. As he tries to clean up some loose ends, we see an even bigger mess is now in front of him.

DC Comics has given us an exclusive look at next week's issue.

This is how I feel too. The writing isn't too bad but I've been left bored the last couple issues.

How does he know who Louis CK and Schwarzennegar are? He's only a few months old and spent his life in a lab until recently, he doesn't know what pop culture is!

Louis CK is a comedian. Superboy is saying that he's not a comedian by referencing an actual comedian.

Dude hangs out with Bunker a lot. I'm sure he's been brought up to speed on pop culture.

He's referencing knowledge that was programmed in during his creation.

Oh, Lobdell's still writing it? Well, let me add this to the ever growing list of things I'll never consider buying.

how is his TK hyper accelration shown here? was he actually moving his body at super speed,or was it his TK energy he was moving at super speed? sure he can "push" himself in a directiin,but does it make his body work like a speedster?

nice start to issue,cant wait to see where he lives and what his secret identity will be,hopefully conner kent.

I'm going to miss DeFalco on this book, it's been sincerely fun since he jumped on board some issues ago. I wasn't going to grab this book after "H'El on Earth", but with an infamous Wonder Woman rogue due to make an appearance, I may grab this. ~ Hype
