    ZzzWorld The art is okay, it s not spectacular it s just there The world building is solid with New Krypton and all the guilds and the look of the city it is well done That being said a deeper dove into the structure I would have liked Story Why would Supes abandon his home and family for New Krypton I m missing something from the main series or it just happens Makes no sense he would abandon humanity Then there s the endless list of things that happen to him for the sake of the story ZzzWorld The art is okay, it s not spectacular it s just there The world building is solid with New Krypton and all the guilds and the look of the city it is well done That being said a deeper dove into the structure I would have liked Story Why would Supes abandon his home and family for New Krypton I m missing something from the main series or it just happens Makes no sense he would abandon humanity Then there s the endless list of things that happen to him for the sake of the story which is completely put of character His acceptance of his guild, his relationship with Zodiac, his relationship with Alura I know DC wanted to do a Krypton series but Kal would never abandon earth it makes no sense The trial the stuff with the world it s all so very contrived and clich d that I find no joy in it at allzzz Characters First and foremost this doesn t work cause Clark doesn t work This is not Superman and putting him here for the sake of it makes him stand out and it makes no sense This is not Superman Then there s the rest of the cast that gets little development and we re suppose to feel for them, nope The end is kinda unexpected but also contrived making Zod not really work It is a meh series so far and the very visiable hands of the writers trying to make this a story really makes this series honestlybad OnOnward to the next book

    At the end of Volume 2, Kandor constructed it s own planet using Brainiac s technology, and put their new home into orbit on the opposite side of the Sun from Earth Kal s aunt Alura handed control of the defense of New Krypton to General Zod, who she freed from the Phantom Zone Superman decided to chose New Krypton, mostly to keep his eyes on Zod, and in doing so, left the Earth On the new homeworld, Kal was drafted into the military under Zod s command.The Guardians of Oa noted this new plan At the end of Volume 2, Kandor constructed it s own planet using Brainiac s technology, and put their new home into orbit on the opposite side of the Sun from Earth Kal s aunt Alura handed control of the defense of New Krypton to General Zod, who she freed from the Phantom Zone Superman decided to chose New Krypton, mostly to keep his eyes on Zod, and in doing so, left the Earth On the new homeworld, Kal was drafted into the military under Zod s command.The Guardians of Oa noted this new planet and dispatched Hal Jordan, John Steward and Sodam Yat to New Krypton to gather information They met with Kal and Zod allowed them to observe and look around.This is all collected in World of New Krypton by James Robinson from the first 2 volumes, and by the great Greg Rucka Rucka s work is always a treat, and perhaps why I enjoyed this volume so very much What I enjoyed most was that Zod and Kal El have always been enemies, yet in this, Kal takes the teachings of his Earth parents and the genes of his birth parents, and his moral code seems to impress Zod, who seems to hold what appears to be a begrudging respect for Superman It also helps that Kal has been helping train the New Krypton army, and isadvanced in the use of his powers than any other yet.While the Green Lanterns are there, a mass murderer escaped the Phantom Zone, and Kal goes against Zod s commands, which has him put up on treason charges Once again, Kal s moral code impresses Zod, and by the end of the book, it seems they will be able to coexist, as each realizes that the other is looking out for the best for Kryptonians.Howeveran assassination attempt takes place, and everything is thrown up in the air.The final story here is one of Zod s initial banishment into the Phantom Zone with Ursa and Non, as well as Non s mentoring of Jor El, and the Council s foolishness leading up to the destruction of Krypton Even here we see Zod and Jor El wanting the same thing, but in different means of accomplishing itwhich follows the parallels we see in the main story.This story was written by Geoff Johns with help from Richard Donner, the man who directed the original Superman movie Well worth reading, almost one you can read on your own, and so far the best of the 3 volumes, in my opinion

    In many ways the James Robinson Greg Rucka take on what would happen if a 100K beings with Superman level powers appeared is the flipside of Robert Kirkman s The Walking Dead Invincible Instead of being hell bent on conquest the Kryptonians are bent on building a new life on the planet they are terraforming While I am not pleased that that the writers have tossed out most of John Byrne s imagining of Krpytonian society, I do appreciate that they are trying to integrate parts of Byrne s work In many ways the James Robinson Greg Rucka take on what would happen if a 100K beings with Superman level powers appeared is the flipside of Robert Kirkman s The Walking Dead Invincible Instead of being hell bent on conquest the Kryptonians are bent on building a new life on the planet they are terraforming While I am not pleased that that the writers have tossed out most of John Byrne s imagining of Krpytonian society, I do appreciate that they are trying to integrate parts of Byrne s work into their own vision and that of the writers who preceeded them In the interim, we have a Superman story with science fiction and cultural overtones And we all know Zod is a villain, but the question does he just want to kill Supes or embark on a war of conquest with his superpowered troops

    It was the last great pre TheNew52 Superman storyline It was supposed to entertain and enlighten and energize the Superman books for years to come It was one of the most massive, interconnected tales of Kal El ever told.And I thoroughly enjoyed it.And I think I was one of the few who did.And that is a complete shame.Superman New Krypton is a storyline that takes place over almost two years worth of Superman, Action Comics, Supergirl, Superboy, World of New Krypton, Adventure Comics and various It was the last great pre TheNew52 Superman storyline It was supposed to entertain and enlighten and energize the Superman books for years to come It was one of the most massive, interconnected tales of Kal El ever told.And I thoroughly enjoyed it.And I think I was one of the few who did.And that is a complete shame.Superman New Krypton is a storyline that takes place over almost two years worth of Superman, Action Comics, Supergirl, Superboy, World of New Krypton, Adventure Comics and various one shots and mini series One of the slight modifications after Infinite Crisis to the mythos was opening the floodgates to plenty of other Kryptonians being alive and well, and this concept became a tidal wave when Superman faced off against Brainiac for the first time and freed the kidnapped bottled city of Kandor.In all classic and neo modern versions of this tale, these fellow Kryptonians become jolly good friends of Superman and benevolent helpers to him Those stores would always bore me to tears Even when they enlarged and got their own planet, I couldn t have cared less.This time, this contemporary version, they range from arrogant to somewhat ungrateful to outright hostile to all sorts inbetween It is made abundantly clear that one of the points of New Krypton is that a great part of makes Superman Super is the parentage of Ma and the now late Pa Kent Early on the now powered up Kandorians relish their new planet, and view the current inhabitants, namely us humans, as like pets The part with the whale illustrates this dichotomy so precisely, it is downright prescient of what future troubles are brewing.Tensions immediately escalate when Lois s presumed dead father, General Lane, enacts Project 7734, with the goal of fulfilling his genocidal hatred of all things Superman Plots within plots within plots, each met with large body counts, becomes the constant theme here Anyone and anything that gets in the way of eliminating these filthy aliens must be abolished The massacres the Kandorians have to endure, and their counter measures to ensure their safety, cause global tensions and bring about a huge cadre of superheroes to sort the situation out.At this point the preamble is done, the Kandorians see the welcome mat yanked away, which makes them launch their city off into space, create a crystalline planet for themselves, and take up orbit on the far side of the sun Goodbye you crazy humans At this point, Kal is still trying to fix all the myriad problems that have come about here, and so with a heavy heart he talks to wife Lois and mother Martha and goes off to outer space and New Krypton.The stage is set and the players are now in place.Kal El is now world building, society changing and evil plot solving in the World of New Krypton comic by James Robinson, Greg Rucka and Pete Woods Guest stars like Green Lantern, Adam Strange and Jemm pop up here because of the new galactic power this planet represents We also see the creators reinvent Krypton by incorporating as many different previous versions as possible, and somehow keeping internal logic Kal learning about how things work here does not make him a happy Superman, and brings out the social revolutionary in him.Meanwhile, back in Metropolis, new protectors have emerged in the Superman comic, by James Robinson and Renato Geudes Through a series of flukes, Mon El has been plucked from the Phantom Zone and managed to be cured, while another clone of the golden age hero The Guardian has come to town These two bring truth and justice and subplots galore here every month.But what of all the subterfuge between the two planets Action Comics by Greg Rucka and various artists plays with this concept by showcasing the hunt for Kryptonian infiltrators by Nightwing and Flamebird This crime fighting duo, and potential couple, are also Kryptonians and fighting against the evil General Zod s plans for Earth.The tale of someone genuinely torn between the two worlds is in the Supergirl comic, by Sterling Gates and Jamal Igle Whether she is on New Krypton endlessly arguing with her mother and leader of Kandor, or learning about humanity while living with Lana Lang back on Earth, Supergirl is constantly challenged She is also subjected to relentless yellow journalism by Daily Planet gossip hound Cat Grant, trying on the secret identity of Linda Lang, and recovering from Kryptonite poisoning, which by the way, is a brilliant pot device to fix the many many problems plaguing the character over the years Supergirl 43 is the absolute best of this series, featuring her birthday and choosing a guild.Joining in on the fun is Adventure Comics, by Geoff Johns and Francis Manapul Starting with Superboy slowly becoming a part of everything, the series than evolves into telling the tale of how the time travelling Legion of Super Heroes are involved with this crisis.Along the way with this sweeping storyline, we get some one shots giving us the journey of Jimmy Olsen as he investigates General Lane, and another one shot at a critical junction of everything A personal favourite is the World s Finest miniseries, by Sterling Gates and various artists, which has several very important plot developments But the real reason this is a classic part of New Krypton is that these four issues have a literal whackload of Superman and Batman supporting characters teaming up, arguing, bantering, and just giving us readers a grand old adventure Come on, Guardian and Robin Damian taking on Mr Freeze and the Parasite, whatcan you ask for The only downside to this undertaking is the midway point You can tell the gears behind the scenes were being shifted slightly, with some ideas, like Mon El s powers or what to do with Guardian s kid , becoming increasing sidelined By the time of the epic ending with The Last Stand of New Krypton comic, you can feel the lethargy kicking in This is not to say the conclusion, which reaches its final crescendo with the War Of The Supermen mini series, was not good and gripping and emotional, but it is obvious the fatigue from creating all those stories had taken it s toll.Afterall, besides everything I have mentioned, New Krypton also stars Lois Lane on a quest for the truth about her father, Perry White trying to guide her, Lex Luther being the master manipulator, Atlas being a brute, Steel helping out in Metropolis, the Creature Commandos making a comeback, Reactron being a ruthless murderer, Doomsday terrorizing everyone, Captain Atom playing a role, Daxam history getting re explained, Codename Assassin getting a dust off, Silver Banshee giving a shout out, Insect Queen crawling about, Rao gaining new followers, and a partridge in a pear tree With all this, and so much , is it any wonder that everyone involved probably needed a nice long vacation when it was all said and done One issue that was present from the start, as related in interviews by writer Greg Rucka, is that New Krypton was very much behind schedule right from inception Playing catch up was always a present concern for all creators, who all want to do their best, but are facing a super deadline looming before them.Because of this rushed nature of the series, and despite the promotional push from DC Comics, fans seemed slightly jaded before New Krypton even began I myself got every issue, but only read them all last month Because of this malaise, I firmly believe sales of the entire storyline were far below expectations, which is most likely why virtually all aspects of it were promptly ignored as soon as it ended And this failure was also the most probable reason why the major surgery was committed on Superman s history with The New 52 Relaunch Think about it, this massive sweeping tale of epic proportions with far reaching ramifications vanishes from continuity a year later Such a shame.Everyone has a favourite Superman Mine is the From Crisis To Crisis era This storyline, with a nip and tuck and a bit of mental rewiring, can still fit somewhat gently into that beloved version of the Man of Steel Yes, some leaps are harder to take than others, and I am looking at you Lucy Lane, but so many of the basic concepts are still present and accounted for.So many thoughts and ideas are expressed here The Clark Kent of Ma and Pa Kent faces off against the Kal El of Krypton, nature versus nurture on a planetary scale Earth and New Krypton on a collision course caused by madmen, people who know nothing of what Superman stands for All this encompassing something like 150 comics in total.A Super tale for a Superman

    Consistent art an entire collection of New Krypton without a single fill in artist Amazing This book is probably the best New K book so far Robinson s love of old comics and Rucka s sociopolitical writing blend well, as we see the various guilds of Kryptonian culture, witness the inequities of the system, and get to see Superman be a true leader even among people whose powers match his own Rucka and Robinson do a great job with the tension between Superman and Zod, even to the point of show Consistent art an entire collection of New Krypton without a single fill in artist Amazing This book is probably the best New K book so far Robinson s love of old comics and Rucka s sociopolitical writing blend well, as we see the various guilds of Kryptonian culture, witness the inequities of the system, and get to see Superman be a true leader even among people whose powers match his own Rucka and Robinson do a great job with the tension between Superman and Zod, even to the point of showing Zod s burgeoning respect for Kal Early chapters, Zod seems to be setting Superman in situations designed to force him to make a choice that compromises his high moral standards, and Superman continually finds a better way And it has a great cliffhanger, Zod shot in the chest The art s strong, as well.There s a back up story, from some Action Comics Annual, Johns, Donner and I forget the artist showing Krypton s final days Zod s rebellion and exile, Non s punishment, etc It s not bad, but eh

    In the words of an old sports announcer, Business is about to pick up As things in the New Krypton story end up coming loadsinteresting.The previous collection ended with the former bottle city of Kandor living among Earth as 100,000 Kryptonians end up among humanity But despite all the hope, especially from Superman that these people could coexist the story ends with Kandor s leader ending up using technology reversed engineered from Brainiac as it turns Kandor from a city to a planet In the words of an old sports announcer, Business is about to pick up As things in the New Krypton story end up coming loadsinteresting.The previous collection ended with the former bottle city of Kandor living among Earth as 100,000 Kryptonians end up among humanity But despite all the hope, especially from Superman that these people could coexist the story ends with Kandor s leader ending up using technology reversed engineered from Brainiac as it turns Kandor from a city to a planet called New Krypton.Though Krypton is reborn, its still troubling that there is a planet of Kryptonians and as a Kryptonian who lives on Earth, Superman now must take up the citizenship of his planet in order to protect both Earth and New Krypton, especially since its newest leader, his Aunt Alura is now in charge and granting an old enemy clemency so as to protect the planet That enemy General Zod.After the events in the epic Geoff Johns story Last Son of Krypton, Zod, who tried and failed to conquer Earth is now welcomed back with open arms to rebuild Krypton s military But Superman knows that though this man may have been loyal to Krypton, a despot is still a despot While things on Earth apparently go back to normal, he ends up enlisting into the Kryptonian military in order to keep an eye on his old foe.Got to say it s not that bad seeing Superman as a Kryptonian soldier, thanks to his years of fighting as a superhero as well as being trained by Batman and Wonder Woman in combat he sthan adequate as a soldier I love how he makes friends with some soldiers like Asha Del Nar, who truly is a loyal subordinate Though he does antagonize others like Fer Gor Though it s still weird that there exists a coldness between him and his Aunt who shares power with a ruling class that restores some of what made Krypton so short sided in its eventual destruction Especially among other factions such as their guilds, a sort of prejudice with its Military, Art, Labor and Sciences Not as exciting but gives it a feeling of realism Superman or Commander Kal El is strong but unlike Zod, is not cruel and is always looking for a solution that doesn t require force Not very militant but in many ways not too dissimilar from noble military governors or generals that become presidents like Washington or Eisenhower Though the Justice League keeps to themselves, the Green Lanterns are concerned, and a brief adventure does bring the Kryptonians to odds with the Lanterns Especially since the conflict brews to the point that Superman is tried for treason Thankfully its resolved, but I got to say it s cool how it brings flashbacks to the Richard Donner films with the white holographic faces and the black clad lawyers.The ending itself is also explosive asthings from Krypton s past resurface all the while the story continues I got to say it s not that bad, despite the change of writers Geoff Johns was doing the Green Lantern and Blackest Night stories so it s understandable that it would continue with someone else James Robinson does well too, especially since he did the prequel story Coming of Atlas But it shows some difference, the tone ispolitical but there is still plenty of action It slows the pace a bit Plus, New Krypton eventually involvesstories that spinoff, particularly among its tertiary characters.Still pretty good C

    So these 5 issues are the only ones that follow Superman on his new home I imagine these read quite differently if you are not reading some of the other parts of New Krypton Either way, I would have enjoyed these books The play between Zod and Kal is very interesting and Kal El being another kryptonion does not change him being heroic, kind and good natured Great intrigue and plot going on in this part of the epic event.
