One more review for the night, and it's also the 2,900 post here at the blog... That's a hell of a lot of posts! Anyway, back to the comic at hand. This issue is a part of the H'El on Earth storyline that I haven't been following in the least. Let's take care of this.
Superboy Annual #1
Summary: The set-up here is that Superman and Superboy have been transported to some alien prison world thanks to H'El. The two do a lot of bickering with each other before Superboy realizes that the prison world was sentient. Then Supes and SB then run into two aliens who had been locked on the prison world for a very long time, and we naturally get a battle. In the end, Superboy outsmarts the two aliens and convinces the prison world to let him and Supes back to Earth. That about wraps this one up.
Thoughts: Well, that was pretty succinct, no? Really, there was no reason for a more in depth review, because that's the gist of what happened here. This comic was more or less Superman and SB getting to know each other. I will say one thing before ending this post though... Tom DeFalco writes the New 52 Superboy SO MUCH like the pre-reboot Superboy. And that? That's a good thing to me.
Score: 7 out of 10.
Supes does tend to be an annoying know-it-all at times, doesn't he?
