Locked in an intergalactic juvenile detention facility, Superboy and Robin meet the youngest...and meanest...Green Lantern ever! Well, sort of a GL. Mostly a GL. Really more of a trainee, but don't tell the bad guys, okay? Plus, Joker Jr. returns...the clown who may be the boys' last, best hope to stop the Gang!

    Tomasi's Super Sons has been one of the best things to come out of Rebirth, and it would be a shame to see it end with the final issue of this miniseries. Hopefully their adventures will continue in some form regardless of whatever changes DC has in store for Jon and Damian. In any case, I will savor each issue of this series while it lasts.

    Adventures of the Super Sons is quite possibly one of the most enjoyable books DC Comics has put out in a long time, and that holds true even with an issue that sees the Super Sons separated and in peril. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder Feb 6, 2019

    Adventures of the Super Sons is your monthly dose of technicolor youth heroes being joyful even in difficult scenarios. It's an animated series that will hook younger readers and will keep older readers smiling with their various homages and deep cuts into the DC Universe. Adventures of the Super Sons #7 is a strong opener for this last act, and I can't wait to see where it goes next. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Feb 6, 2019

    While it doesnt necessarily advance the overall storyline in any significant way, this for me is easily the best issue of the series so far. Its beautifully laid out, strikingly illustrated, and blends humour and drama into what is an utterly enjoyable read. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Tom Zimm Feb 6, 2019

    This story is starting to hit its stride as Damian's skill as a trained assassin takes center stage. Jonathan finds the courage and strength to aid in his own rescue, but it's Robin's quick thinking that sets them up for their confrontation with Rex and attempted escape from Takron Galtos. I highly recommend this book to fans of DC comics and the Super-Sons! Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Feb 8, 2019

    And it's a beautiful last page they had me excited and wanting more. The only downside is that there are only five more issues left in this series. Hopefully DC continues it past the limited series, because this is just a great read overall. I'm enjoying myself every time I pick up this comic book and want more stories featuring these characters. Read Full Review

    Anyways. This continues to be a fun comic with inside comic homages and great characterization between the sons. Throw in Film Noir dialogue and it makes me happy. Roll on the next 5 months! Read Full Review

    This issue keeps us guessing with how the two will continue. The ways are very open going into issue 8, and just about anything is possible. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Feb 6, 2019

    While this issue does have the feel of a wild goose chase, with Robin going from one wannabe villain to the next delivering beatdowns throughout, it is fun. And fun is all that I've wanted from this series since it was relaunched in August. Carlo Barberi made his return on art duties for the book and picked up right where he left off. While Tomasi doesn't answer all the questions I have, this issue does provide us with a nice launching point for the second half of this series. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Feb 6, 2019

    Overall, it's just an odd comic that doesn't really know what it wants to be " it's lost the innocent fun of these characters' earlier team-ups, but its darker elements don't come together into any sort of compelling larger plot. Read Full Review
