The Super Sons are trapped in the past – locked in deadly combat with noted jerk and recipient of “worst person to ever be granted immortality” award Vandal Savage! In this second installment of Superboy and Robin’s adventures in the past (before returning to the present to save the Justice League from certain death), you’ll witness a harrowing escape, a SUPER ugly monster and the origin of Rora: Jon and Damian’s spell-wielding ally!

    This series continues to be just a delight to read. It's got a familiar and straightforward plot that has options to get twisty when it wants to but right now it's just delivering the kind of buddy-action-comedy that fans want from Damian and Jon. It's got a great look to it once again thanks to Corona's dynamic artwork and very distinctive designs while Tomasi keeps the humor just right and slowly teases out more of what's going on or at least how things are going to be taken advantage of by bad actors in order to achieve their goals.

    Challenge of the Super Sons is still a lot of fun. This issue is a bit weighed down by some issues that have been chasing it for a while, but even in all that the characters are the real shining star of this book. If you love Jon, Damian, and their whole vibe together, this is still the book for you. Read Full Review
