   SUPERBOY #3
Written by SCOTT LOBDELL
Art by R.B. SILVA and ROB LEAN
Cover by ERIC CANETE
On sale NOVEMBER 9 * 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US
RATED T
When N.O.W.H.E.R.E. assigned Superboy to put down an alien prison riot, they couldn't have suspected his powers would bring the entire prison down on top of him. Inside the wreckage, he'll find a mysterious - and gorgeous - alien who could help him escape... but does she want to? Meanwhile, Superboy's handler, Rose Wilson, is about to discover that she is connected to the origin of her "assignment" in a way she never imagined!

I don't know who would have said it but I'm sure people were just confused because DC wasn't releasing all their covers on The Source when they released the covers for specific "family titles" and Superboy wasn't posted with the other Superman comics

I doubt they're going to can a series that hasn't even run yet.

Wait I thought they said they were not going to use Deathstroke's children.
Does this mean Rose isn't his kid anymore?

What I want to know is how many eyes she has.

I saw someone mention it when the Staff posted the Superman covers for November and Superboy wasn't with them. They said something about Superboy's series getting cancelled and him just being the villain for the Teen Titans or something.

well I don't see why they would, it would ruin their entire marketing scheme of "New 52" and make the entire reboot pointless, to an extent...and Justice League Dark wasn't with the other Dark titles when they posted the November covers, and there were other missing comics from sets of covers so I highly doubt any of it's getting cancelled...yet...give it a few months and books might start dropping like flies

Good point. And true, some of the 52 titles really don't look that interesting and I can see them getting cancelled in the next few months once the reboot starts next month. Though I wouldn't be surprised if DC's got a whole other set of titles ready to put out when that happens.

I think DC's literally going to throw at the wall every single property they own in a move of desperation to get more sales and they'll drop titles that aren't working quick to replace them with new ones that they think will make up for it...personally, I wouldn't mind that they were putting out new content if it weren't for the fact that they killed all the current content first, there's no win (at best the loss is cancelled out with the win leaving a feeling of neutrality) for the current comic fan, it's all aimed at the non-existent "new comic reader"

I don't know what to think. But I guess I'm going to buy one more series. I may just drop Marvel altogether. <.<

Thank God Rose is back.....but as Superboy's HANDLER? Probably because of Krul's run on Teen Titans (where he's been showing us a possible love interest between the two...)
Rose's duty as Superboy's "handler"?

Soooooo Rose Wilson has some kind of connection to Superboy? Is his human DNA from Slade Wilson perhaps?

Well I'm a little disappointed my theory is wrong but really being half Lex half Superman is how it should be. I wonder what her connection to the project is then. Probably something to do with Slade who I assume is still her father.

Yea I liked it, pretty enjoyable. SL said that as far as he knows Rose's father is still Slade but she was never Ravager, not sure what he means by that.
