There are 100,000 people with the powers of Superman now taking up residence just a stone’s throw away from Earth — however only one of them truly concerns the Man of Steel.

The appointment of his father’s old nemesis, General Zod, as leader of New Krypton’s military is enough to get Superman to drop everything in his adopted home in Metropolis (leaving an old friend in his place, as seen in Superman: Mon-El) and set up residence with the rest of the remaining survivors of his doomed homeworld in the city of Kandor.

The result, in this third collection of the epic and enjoyable New Krypton storyline, is a new life, a new job and plenty of culture shock for Earth’s mightiest hero.

Co-writers James Robinson and Greg Rucka, along with artist Pete Woods, immerse Superman in a fantastic new world full of wonders and dangers as he is drafted into the military as Commander Kal-El and is forced to walk a fine line with Zod as his boss.

With a showdown looming and intrigue swirling, this book sees one man being sentenced to death and the other gunned down. But which is which?
