Man kneels before funny looking geezer on throne

Superman: World of New Krypton #9, by James Robinson, Greg Rucka, Pete Woods, and Ron Randall

You know, the one about Kal-El (formerly Superman) living on a new Krypton with all the other Kaldor city Kryptonians, now back to normal size. This title is turning into an annoying occasion for DC Universe nerd stuff, with every one of the last few issues seeing some stupid who-gives-a-shit minor DC alien race showing up for no reason other than to excite continuity rockists. I think this may well be my last issue. This is something of a shame. For a while, this title had something, with the funny Kryptonian politics and the General Zod ambiguity being rather interesting. But it took a rapidly downhill course after that great "This is a job for Superman" moment.
