The artwork, especially the colouring was just delicious.  This colourist knows their way around their tools and it’s the best part of this issue.

sg 002Negatives

Predictable writing, poor attempts at humour and no real connection to the characters’ feelings.

Final Thought

So this issue ends on a chick fight over a guy wearing a small amount of spandex… This issue is definitely one for the boys. I was looking forward to the school and seeing the aspects of different cultures that can be as strange and alien as the writer imagines and this was just not there.

The convention scene as a background, while cute for Superboy to pop up in and find himself a little, was just a cliché when the fight breaks out and just can’t hold a candle to the only recently released Harley Quinn goes to Comic-con. It gave off a vibe of trying too hard.

Here’s hoping it really picks up.
