+ Solid debut issue for Adventure Comics.
+ Hit all the right notes regarding reintroducing Superboy to everyone without going into too much detail about being a clone of Lex Luthor, etc.
+ Manapul's art was fantastic. Really sold me on an otherwise slow paced intro issue.
+ Backup was better than the main issue. Loved Starman and the promise/teaser of future installments of the Legion back-up.
- Boo-urns. Can't recall Superboy mentioning his tactile telekinesis once.
- Nothing happened. Superboy helped out on farm, went to school, saved a girl and chatted with Superman.
- Backup was better than the main issue. An 8 page backup shouldn't outshine the main story.
Verdict - Check It. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. While a tad slow for a first issue, if you have the slightest interest in Superboy or the Legion, you should probably be buying this first issue.
