Brainiac and Lex Luthor believe in the old maxim: The enemy of my enemy is my friend. They’ll work together for a seemingly common goal, but each has back-up plans, escape routes, and back-up plans for the escape routes and back-up plans for the back-up plans for the escape routes….

Where was I?

You were going to post a gif.

Who else has plans?

I think the question should be: Who doesn’t have a plan? And who doesn’t have a plan that conflicts with the plans of others? Huh. Who?

While it is clearly not the end of this epic length story, it is sort of an ending point, clearing up most of the threads that occurred on New Krypton. This just leaves the upcoming war with Earth for the final arc.

There are a few more surprises here as well as a subplot featuring the Legion of Superheroes and some history on Brainiac. It's primarily an action story and I give them points for leaving things in an unpredictable manner.

All in all this ended up being a worthwhile read. We'll see h

Though it is a tragedy, this is a phenomenal conclusion to one of the best Superman stories in decades.

It was the last great pre-TheNew52 Superman storyline. It was supposed to entertain and enlighten and energize the Superman books for years to come. It was one of the most massive, interconnected tales of Kal-El ever told.

And I thoroughly enjoyed it.

And I think I was one of the few who did.

And that is a complete shame.

Superman New Krypton is a storyline that takes place over almost two years worth of Superman, Action Comics, Supergirl, Superboy, World of New Krypton, Adventure Comics and various

This part of the three part conclusion wraps up the Brainiac storyline as we head into the finale. What really works for me here is Brainiac 5's inner monologue. Why? Because he has always been one of my favorite LSH characters, and we get an explanation as to why the Dox family decided to reclaim the Brianiac title. Did I forget to mention that I like his character is based off of brain over brawn? Sure, Dox can be arrogant, it is a family trait, and here writers James Robinson and Sterling Gat ...more

"Brainiac Revenge Squad, advance!"
Somebody actually uttered that in this book!
There's so much stuff going on in this book that it doesn't make a lot of sense. That's what I get for not reading the previous one recently. Usually they put some kind of recap at the beginning of comics but not in this one!
What's up with General Zod in this? How'd he get in the bottle city of Kandor? For that matter, how did Superboy get in there? Why is it that Mon-El is fighting in one panel and actually kicking a

Volume 2 of this amazing story-arc leaps straight back into the action picking up right after he Kryptonian city of Kandor has once again been bottled by the knowledge-hungry Brainiac.

It's up to Superman to save the day and his people, but he's not doing it alone! Along for the ride is Kara Zor-El (aka Supergirl) Connor Kent (aka Superboy and Lar Gand. (aka Mon-El)

And if that wasn't enough, the Legion of Superheroes, a Superman-inspired superher

I love a good time-stream cross-over with the Legionnaires.... and this one didn't disappoint. It also didn't blow my mind.

Some spectacular splash pages near the end of this volume really help to get the pulse pumping. Robinson doesn't try to do anything more than tell the story through his dialogue, which is perfectly straight forward, non-expository, and plot-forwarding, which is a welcome approach at this point in the uber-length story-line of New Krypton. Some really nice twists are had, as

In the end this is another Superman book that leads into another event. It was an okay read, It didn't keep me on the edge of my seat as much as the previous volume. The artwork was a little all over the place at times with so many artist on the book. Some of the fight scenes weren't as dynamic as they could have been. The new krypton saga has gone on and on, and i'm looking forward to the FINAL trade.

Better than its predecessor, primarily due to its focus on the Legion, particularly the Supergirl/Brainiac interactions. Beyond that, too much fighting all in the name of being an epic story, which unfortunately ended up short on a lot of the character & details.

Shaped it self valiantly. Beautiful and active art and although the battle scenes can get a bit visually hectic and the bubbles hard to follow the lack of flow at times does not detract. Loved this arc for Supeman and Supergirl.

It is hard to fathom that the James Robinson who co-wrote this tripe is the same James Robinson who wrote the brilliant Starman. Perhaps Geoff Johns's protégé Sterling Gates is to blame?

An enjoyable read with interesting use of time travel. I particularly liked the Brainiac 5 part of the storyline as he's always been a favourite re the Legion of Super Heroes.

Four stars might be generous but I'm glad to see real progress in this story. This volume has a lot coming to a head and I'm actually looking forward to the next one.
