    Definitely read Super Sons. Its always great, the arcs are fun, and watching the relationship between Jon and Damian grow is simply fantastic. Dont start on issue #12, but do read it. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Aron Pohara Jan 17, 2018

    Even as an epilogue to this crossover, Super Sons 12 is lot more than that. It is the end of Jon and Damian arc of becoming reluctant team mates and partners to finally becoming gasps friends. It is that turn that made this issue special and maybe the best issue of Super Sons yet. DCAnimated Super Sons NOW! Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder Jan 17, 2018

    It's a fitting conclusion. It wraps up the storylines and makes you want more of the characters. You can't really ask for better. Read Full Review

    The art is gorgeous throughout. Specifically, the way they capture Damian and Jonathan is attuned to the emotions they are feeling in the moment. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Rick Lopez Jan 17, 2018

    Tomasi and Gleason do a great job wrapping up this crossover and leaving behind seeds for future story lines in each of the titles while also carrying the Super Sons title forward. Per usual it's sincerely heart warming seeing Damian grow closer to the endearing Jonathan Kent as the months have gone on leaving me excited for what's to come next month. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Jan 18, 2018

    It doesn't seem that long ago that a comic starring the sons of Superman and Batman could even exist, except maybe as an Elseworlds story. But now it's one of the best titles in DC's lineup, telling the story of a new generation's World's Finest team. Read Full Review

    So this doesnt go the way I had thought it would, but I am not at all bothered by that. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jan 17, 2018

    I had issues with the last chapter, thinking that was the finale. This issue is the real one and it's a perfect ending to what has been an exciting and fun event. The only reason this is a read is because it's not a good entry point, but it's a great ending to this arc. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Austin Braun Jan 25, 2018

    While this crossover may not have worked for some, I found my mind just racing with the possibilities of what could come next. This eventually becomes the events' downfall, as not enough time was put into the plot but way too much time was spent setting up for whats to come. Luckily this issue stood mostly on its own, only being somewhat guilty of this crime. With some exceptional art and amazing character development, I wouldnt tell you to stray away from this story as it does truly add a lot to the DC universe altogether, with a fun ride along the way.

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Jan 22, 2018

    So a lot of this epilogue, especially the part that focused on Jon and Damian, really sparkled. That conversation with Superman really showed how far these two have come. Will their be longstanding impact of this arc? Will we see Bart, Cassie, and Conner again? Will Savior be a sort of misguided Waverider moving on? Will the Titans disband or continue to struggle as a team? The seeds are there. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Jan 19, 2018

    Super Sons #12 is a nice, quiet wrap-up for the crossover story. It doesn't have the youthful glow and spirit that makes this book lovable and unique, but it's a solid effort. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Scott Shuken Jan 17, 2018

    Now that the Super Sons of Tomorrow arc is wrapped up, I find myself feeling like the heroes of this story did after the various time-travelling heroes left: feeling very much the same but also different, and not totally certain what happened and how much of it was important. Read Full Review

    While the event itself did not deliver what it advertised, this one final issue raises the stakes for the future of the young members of the DC Universe. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Jose "Jody" Cardona Jan 19, 2018

    While beautiful to look at, the epilogue of this story has a major break in logic in the aftermath. While it is nice to see Damian and Jon grow as characters, the lack of problem-solving from the Titans drag the issue down hard. If you stayed with this arc up to this point, I would say pick it up. If not, take a pass on it. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jan 16, 2018

    While you'll leave this crossover with way more questions than answers, this issue did have some decent growth between Jon and Damian that I do love to see.  I just wish it could have provided more because this crossover had the makings of something special, but completely fizzled out over the last couple of issues.  Thankfully though, what we did have here was some fantastic art and at least some optimism that things are starting to look brighter for every book involved with this arc.   Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jan 17, 2018

    Maybe reading this entire arc in one sitting will make this conclusion more impactful. Theres certainly some plot threads that can be further explored in the three titles going forward. For now, Super Sons of Tomorrow didnt fully stick the landing. Read Full Review

    IGN - Kat Calamia Jan 18, 2018

    Super Sons #12 leaves future Tim Drake's storyline on an unsatisfying note, but gives us strong enough character interactions to make this an entertaining read. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws Jan 17, 2018

    I hesitate to call this the best installment of the arc, as most of its strengths come from interactions and developments that could have come about another way. As in, the whole “Super Sons of Tomorrow” story wasn't necessary to bring everyone to where they are at the end of this issue. Still, the final few scenes are strong enough to almost recommend it on its own, and the Hypertime visualization makes for a fun game of “spot the story.” The arc itself may not be redeemed, but Tomasi and Gleason wisely focus on character over continued spectacle, strengthening the bond between Jon and Damian to hopefully make Super Sons an even stronger title going forward.

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Jan 17, 2018

    There simply isn't much to talk about here. This whole story was pointless and this issue highlights this, but it was still entertaining enough so as to not be a complete rip-off. The art was strong, however. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jan 22, 2018

    In short, calling this book an epilogue is pretty accurate, as it rehashes and follows up on the themes of the big time-travel crossover without really treading any new ground or being particularly memorable. As a day in the life of our heroes, featuring some nice human moments between them, though, Super-Sons #12 works (in a vacuum, as long as you're not concerned about false notes from the guest-stars) pretty well.

    Percy's take on the Teen Titans is fairly dysfunctional itself, but this version barely feels like a team at all. Read Full Review
