Throwback Thursday: Superboy #23 Review

Writer: Justin Jordan
Artist: RB Silva, Rob Lean
Publisher: DC Comics
Release Date: August 14, 2013
Cover Price: $2.99
Review by: Eric

We pick up where we left off in the last issue of Superboy. Superboy is surrounded by monsters. Even a monster Krypto, and a monster Dr. Psycho. Superboy uses his TK to knock the surrounding monsters back, also making everyone human and Kryptonian dog again. But he sees one girl who looks suspicious and Krypto and him are on the hunt.

During the chase, Krypto goes after something and is thrown back through a wall. Superboy investigates and finds another Superboy. He assumes that there is another clone just like him, and the two begin to duke it out throughout McDuffie High. But when the fight crosses paths with the one friend he made, and first suspect Eliza, he realizes that she's afraid of him, not the other Superboy.

Using his head for the first time Superboy asks a cowering Eliza for her phone as the evil Superboy stands behind her. Using the camera on the phone Superboy finally sees through the illusion and sees the girl he was chasing after his monster attack. But the girl is knocked out by the surprise ending. Dun Dun Duh! Psycho Pirate.

Bits and Pieces:

This issue was a very fast read. It didn't continue the fun of the John Hughes Highschool fun, we at Weird Science loved about the last issue, but I guess you can't stay Breakfast Club forever. But getting Psycho Pirate at the end is something to look forward to for next issue. But Superboy continues to have the problem where the story is lost because of his smashy smashy attitude.
