Should I read Superboy?

#1 Posted by Eternal19 (2076 posts) - - Show Bio

I was debating on whether I should take Batman inc of my list since im already reading Batman and Batman and Robin. I wanted to replace it with another charecter and Superboy seems like an interesting charecter due, to his connection with Superman. But, I don't want to add a bad book to my list. Is Superboy good enough to replace Batman inc

@Eternal19: Well superboy isn't better than Batman Inc and doesn't is a great book as Batman or Action comics,but is far better than Teen Titans or Red Hood and the Outlaws. It's good pick up to learn more about his ''new'' powers and the relationship with the world,and in issue 13 begin the crossover between the S familiy. H'ell on Earth

I'm not sure. I've seen good reviews and bad reviews.

Why are you dropping Batman Inc, anyway?

@SmashBrawler: because Im already reading two other batman books Batman inc is a good book but there are just so many other charecters out there that I want to read. Most of my comic book reading list is batman and superman related so I wanted to try something new

as a huge SB fan i will always say yes to buying the book,course the book isnt perfect,but kon is a fascinating and very powerful character NOW,so i would try issue 13 on wed.,also get ravagers right along with it same day,he is in it also.

I say go for it if you want to know more superboy and how they treated him in the new 52. My opinion though is that I'm surprised on how they changed up his power

I just decided to drop SB. Doesn't seem like it's going anywhere.

I like it think its good its one of my favourite books of 52 but then like all the Super books Im (Super Fan) its does have some flaws I recommend trying it you may like it or you may not.

there are many plot points emerging innthe superboy book,so i dont see why anyone would say its not goijg anywhere. 
also SB started out with only TTK,and now he is back to his roots,BUT with new twists added like more dna donors,more power,a realistic way of seeijg the world when you were created in a tube.

Haven`t read Superboy, but I didn`t hear many good things about it either. Why don`t you try a marvel book like Wolverine and the X-men, Uncanny X-Force, Ultimate comics spider-man or even the new Uncanny Avengers?

dude try what you want,but superboy is a SUPER,and he is one created to be a weapon,and not a boy scout.

i started reading superboy because of supergirl but then decided to quit it isn't worth reading.

kon and kara are two very different tastes in characters,both are good,but i see how some would like one and not the other. 
the problem ppl who like SUPER books has with the superboy book is that it doesnt read like a SUPER book,and kon himself is very different than kal or kara,he isnt a " hero" character like superman and supergirl.

@stephens2177: makes sense

Yes, the book is great!

#18 Posted by stephens2177 (1079 posts) - - Show Bio

im the biggest superboy fan that walks the earth,but the book isnt perfect by any means,and SB needs to show more feats,more SUPER uses of his powers,like kara does in her book,he has so much power,he needs to stop fighting with low level metas,and start doing big shit,follow supermans lead from superman #13,and action comics#14.
