"You're a Kent"
The return of Adventure Comics is and should be an event. Geoff and Francis execute this wonderfully. Manapul is just as much at home drawing stunningly beautiful Kansas farmland as superheroes in action. It's good to see that Johns treats Superboy with an interesting blend of reverence for the classic Superboy of the 50's and 60's as well as acknowledgement of the character's actual roots as a product of both Superman and Luthor. The story depicts a Superboy adjusting to comic book resurrection as well as desperately trying to follow in the footsteps of Superman. As far as the backup goes, I've been on the fence regarding the Legion for a while, and I felt like it was a little off-putting because of its complexity. Geoff Johns, however, does his usual brilliant work and tells an interesting story about a Legionnaire suffering from mental illness as a result of being displaced in time. Overall, this is a great intro to a new ongoing and does just the right amount of introducing as well as developing the world for Conner to inhabit.
