This issue was just pure crap. Timeline is a mess and the dialogue was atrocious. Why can't the writers let the art do half the talking? Why let characters restate what the art is clearly showing? What's with the monologuing from Grunge? It almost feels like a text book. That scene with Jocelyn Lure really killed it for me. Who talks like that? Why did Superboy trust her yet lament about how he can't trust anybody else? Seriously, we need a new writing team on this book ASAP. The whole scene with Rose was just weird. Why wasn't Leash shown? And that ending... Nothing about this issue was cohesive. It's a problem when I'm curious about everything else in the issue but the main showdown between Grunge and Superboy. I keep waiting for a turnaround from this book but it never comes. I'm starting to feel like Charlie Brown and DC is Lucy with the football. I don't know how much longer I can keep going with this book.
