Possibly the greatest mystery in all of comic books may have been solved. Using information provided by Superman publisher DC Entertainment, renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse-Tyson has claimed to have located the location of Superman's home planet of Krypton.  

In order to find the possible home of the Man Of Steel, Tyson worked with The Hayden Planetarium to locate a planet similar to Krypton, located near a red dwarf star in the constellation Corvus which 27.1 light years from Earth. The star can be seen at right ascension 12 hours, 10 minutes, 05.60 seconds, and declination 15 degrees, 04’ 15.66.

This is a perfect example of science being super-heroic. Image Comics knows all about super-heroics as they release six new comic books and one collected edition. Titles are scored on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the very best possible. We take the time to read these books so your time isn't wasted.

Perhapnaughts: Danger Down Under - Issue 1

The best thing about this issue was the recap of prior stories which was both informative and funny. After that, the story and artwork were average. There were moments that unusual amounts of melodrama that seemed only intended for comedy. Pretty much the whole issue felt like people standing around their headquarters, talking.

Score: 6 out of 10

Epic Kill - Issue 6

The art team seem incapable of drawing wolf-men with their mouths closed. This is similar to the rest of the art which is sort of great and dynamic. And sort of amateurish  and unskilled. A lot of credit should be given to the creator who does all the work. The story is sort of dream like in plotting and how the protagonist never seems to get hurt.

Score: 4.5 out of 10

Nancy In Hell On Earth - Issue 4

This series can best be described as biblical. Biblical levels of violence and pubescent sexuality.It's unclear if the creative team was being ironic or just sexist. The story is baffling and the characters behave in ridiculous ways. This contrasts with strangely sentimental moments. The cover was interesting.
