    Nice to see a glimpse of Lana back at The Star again, if only briefly.

    Well, back to the regular art team. I preferred the fill in artist Jose Luis from the last issue, so that's kind of a let down.

    I'm still enjoying the book, and think it's a good book overall, but they are really overdoing it with using Superman as a pick me up for Lana.

    So either this issue, or the next, we'll find out how Lana got her original powers in the Post-Reborn timeline.

    How is this book doing, not in term of sales but in terms of quality. I read the first issue but never planned to continue and was surprised by it's quality. However, i heard it goes downhill fast so should i get the trades?

    I think we care about Lana Lang. In the end, she is an important character in Clark's life.

    But I think this book needs to come to an end. It is just bad.

    I think it's been pretty good overall, Jimenez's run ranks as one of my favorite stories in the Super line, so I would recommend getting the trades.

    But the overall reception to the book has been mixed. The general consensus is that the book is merely decent, and there are a lot more people that think the book is really awful than there are those that think it's fairly good.

    I also dislike New Super-man book a lot.

    Instead of creating another character with Superman-ish powers, they should have spent their time thinking about how bringing Conner back in the best possible way.

    That's a special case though, clearly ending by Snyder's choice.

    All-Star Batman is DC's second best seller, so it isn't ending because of sales.

    The creation of New Super-Man did not begin as an alternative to bringing back Conner.

    Conner's absence has nothing to do with New Super-Man, and if New Super-Man never came to be, that wouldn't mean DC would be working on bringing Conner back.

    Yeah, Kon El really isn't a reason to be against kenan. You could dislike that Lana replaced Lois on panel, but that was a first issue thing literally a year ago.

    I've been thinking about sticking with this because Perkins is pretty solid, although I don't like this John Henry at all.

    Pointless example to use though, since like Clementine said, it was a best seller and DC is trying to change that book into a new format that will be announced soon.

    Lana isn't going anywhere,even if they drop this series,she will be in another SUPER book soon enough,as a background star,or in a team type book.

    And that's if she has powers or not.

    Same for Kenan

    And Steel

    Now bring back a kick ass kon-el

    Kon El needed a break...DC kept making his backstory and power set more and more confusing.

    I dropped this book awhile ago, mostly because it went downhill so quickly, and the only thing which could bring me back is the return of Traci.

    This book isn't even comparable to New Super-Man. While this book has been mediocre or bad for most of its time, New Super-Man has been one of Rebirth's greatest triumphs. As others have said, Kenan being created has NOTHING to do with Kon not being around.

    Putting a character on break doesn't help them. Fixing them helps them, and, like with the other members of the YJ4, all that's necessary to get him back on track is to say that the versions of them we saw in the Nu52 weren't really them.Heck, Kon's even easier, since unlike Bart and Cassie, who haven't been written consistently well since 2003, Kon was actually doing pretty decently before the reboot.
