It's meh. I mean...Superboy had Geoff Johns and Francis Manapul for a creative team but ever since it was think it doesn't compare to Johns' and Manapul's run on the character. Stand-alone the recent series is okay, I mean they're trying to put a little too much emphasis on Superboy's non-Kryptonian powers, though.

I've enjoyed the emphasis on the non-Kryptonian powers, but I've found the series really inconsistant quality-wise. One month it will be great, the next…meh. And the artist makes everyone's eyes yellow, which really bothers me.

It's pretty good. It defintley has a different feel from his 90s series. It's not fantastic, but the story so far is good.
