    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Apr 3, 2019

    This is one the best DC series and I would say that it ranks among some of the best DC titles of all time. I will be sorry when this current mini reaches it conclusion, and I hope that DC has future plans for the saga of the Super Sons to continue in one form or another. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Rick Lopez Apr 3, 2019

    With three issues remaining Tomasi and Godlewski continue to drive this series home and deliver another humorous segment starring these fan favorites. As Jon and Damians friendship remaining in question outside of this series, the clock appears to be against the boys for the foreseeable future. As Tomasi and company continue to bring the heart to these beloved characters, fans will be waiting in anticipation for this cherished series Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder Apr 3, 2019

    Adventures of the Super Sons is bombastic and it's constantly change of pace, while letting us spend more time with the two beacons of hope in the DC Universe. This is a must read for both fans of Batman and Superman. It's what all superhero comics should aspire to be: fun and inspirational. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Apr 3, 2019

    Scott Godlewski is a good choice to draw this particular issue. He's got a great take on the boys as well as Jonah Hex. This is another nice chapter of this limited series. I'm enjoying reading this as it starts heading into the last few issues. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton May 2, 2019

    The robotic Jonah Hex really commands this issue. Tomasi makes him sound like his human predecessor, giving him a voice and viewpoint much more jaded than the young heroes, so it contrasts very well. Perhaps because he is dealing with someone even more cynical than he is, Robin comes off a bit muted this time around. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Tom Zimm Apr 3, 2019

    This issue felt like a return to form for this up-and-down maxi-series. The heroes were invigorated by the presence of AI-X, and the stakes were elevated by Rex's arrival at earth. I am interested in seeing how this story resolves itself as it enters the final stretch. I highly recommend this book to fans of Robin and Super Boy. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Victoria Prisco Apr 3, 2019

    ADVENTURES OF THE SUPER SONS #9 is a decent issue. While there are some dull points to the story, the overall visuals and the perfect balance between westerns and sci-fi save this issue. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Apr 3, 2019

    Adventures of the Super-Sons almost feels like an anthology at times. While there is an ongoing story involving the kid supervillains hunting them, it spends most of its time ping-ponging its tween heroes between one bizarre adventure and another. A lot of them have been duds, like the recent escape from Takron-Galtos, but once in a while, they hit exactly the right notes " like Adventures of the Super-Sons #9's strange space-western adventures.

    Anyways, another fun issue with fun moments. Another dip into the depths of the DCU as well as a riff on the Westworld phenomenon. And we got to see Damian play a harmonica. Nothing to complain about here. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Gwen Dylan Stacy Apr 11, 2019

    I'm hoping that everything leads up to Jonah playing an active part in the future. I think that small addition to the boys' team because it would be nice to see some guidance for them out in the middle of impending doom. If anything, I think that this little sidestep from main action is worth checking out, especially since I feel like Jonah Hex a little extra oomph that this 3.5 out of 5 star writing needs.

    Dark Knight News - Adam Ray Apr 4, 2019

    The wild west planet, with Superboy wearing a stetson and picking up Jonah Hex's access, riding along with the good, the bad, and the sons is the height of fun this title is known for. The journey across worlds continues and this issue sets the tone for just how fun the conclusion will be. Read Full Review

    While next issue's “showdown at the Injustice Gateway” sounds like fun, we've been running in place for so long now I can't get myself excited for it. Read Full Review
