I loved this book as a kid. To me, this is how superhero teen books should be done. The Kid is just stoked about having powers, to the point of constantly telling everyone about them. As a fun side game, count how many times Tactile Telekinesis is said while reading or make it a drinking game if that is something you do.
Superboy has a great collection of villains to go against: Side-Arm is one of my favorites(him being an unconfident villain, that S.B. constantly makes fun of kept me looking forward to their next battle), the Scavenger is one that I wish would get brought out more(he could be major threat level, but is too paranoid), there are a few villains made just for Superboy to battle, most notably King Shark and Knockout. The supporting cast is great and all have stories to tell of their own(later in the series). Kesel and Grummett were one of my favorite team-ups creatively.
If you are over the teen superheroes "being made to be a weapon" storylines, if you want to read about a teen hero having fun and using their powers like you most likely would at that age, just want some solid art, want to see how King Shark and Knockout started out, or a combination of these reasons. Give this book a try, and keep in mind while reading it he's basically a 1 year old.
