Superboy and Robin have been chased through the galaxy by Rex Luthor and his band of murdering minors...and at last the final battle has begun! Using the Dimensional Cube and a brand-new, shiny army of prison planet escapees, Rex has opened the portal to Earth to start his invasion! But Jon and Damian have an army of their own, and when you're backed by a cybernetic cowboy, an intergalactic ride-share program and several hundred "planeteers," how could you not put up an epic fight?!

    It's almost over, so buy and enjoy it while it's still here. This series may be the last we see of Superboy and Robin as they have appeared through the Rebirth era. And if for some reason you haven't been following this series so far, you won't regret hunting down the back issues to get caught up. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Rick Lopez Jun 6, 2019

    Although one issue still remains, two full volumes of Super Sons will be left as a reminder of better days. This volumes nostalgic romp through space has been an absolute godsend for fans tired of their heroes being in constant crisis. Not just the boys together, but really just the sheer pure joy this series brought to fans will be what is missed the most. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Tom Zimm Jun 5, 2019

    This issue was the most enjoyable one in this current 12-issue maxi series due to the action leading toward a definitive end. The Super-sons are at their best when their backs are to the wall. Damian is more ruthless, and Jonathan's powers are highlighted, but mostly, they remain consistent as the good-hearted superheroes. I highly recommend this book to fans of the Super-sons and DC Comics. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder Jun 5, 2019

    The saddest thing about all of this is that the series ends with #12. Adventures of the Super Sons has not reinvented anything, but rather reaffirmed Jon and Damian's place as the perfect starting point for young and youthful readers. It's simple, poignant, and as I have stated repeatedly: just so very, very joyful. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Jun 7, 2019

    By the end of the issue things are looking bleak. It's a crazy ending where all seems to be lost. Will the Super Sons get out of this? Is there any hope left? Or is everything just going to go to hell in a hand basket? I don't know but I can't wait to read the final issue to find out! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton Jun 6, 2019

    It does make me fear that this might be the last we see of the Super Sons. If that is the case, at the least the duo are going out on a high note. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Jun 7, 2019

    If you aren't thinking Red Skull, you should be. I'll miss this series when it is done. I'll reread their books whenever I need a laugh and a reminder that comics can be big, loud fun. And I thank Tomasi and Barberi. Read Full Review

  • 8.0 - Nicole Drum Jun 5, 2019

    The best part is that the issue is very much in line with the overall sense of adventure the entire series has had, which makes it a solid, truly enjoyable issue from one of the best series DC has going right now. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jun 5, 2019

    This felt like a battle episode in Game of Thrones. Stuff happens but it won't get resolved until next time. That said, I am still excited to see how Tomasi wraps up his 2 ½ years run writing the Super Sons in the final issue next month. Read Full Review

    GWW - Deron Generally Jun 5, 2019

    Carlo Barberi's art is great and the action is especially well done. There is a lot going on in the panels, but nothing is overwhelming to the senses. All the pages are filled with dynamic action and details. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jun 5, 2019

    It's the penultimate issue of Peter Tomasi's salute to the former Super-Sons dynamic before Jon got a growth spurt and Damian took a level in jerkass, and this comic pretty much sums up the run as a whole " it's fun, but not memorable. Read Full Review

A divine comedy of errors awaits the super sons. That is if they can get through the portal themselves. Will the super sons be able to thwart the latest maniacal plans of Rex Luthor? To be continued. *** (8.7 rating) Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Sebastian Ferguson Jun 6, 2019

    There are many ways this could have been done better, but it could have been worse. If you're already reading the series, no reason to stop now, but I definitely don't recommend picking up the series based on this issue alone. Read Full Review
