    Super Sons has always been a simple outing. It's never been more complicated than the Son of Batman and the Son of Superman getting into all sorts of shenanigans as they try to figure out how to become better versions of the parents. Yet, it has always been an endearing story and Tomasi's final arc promises to be the only thing we could ever want: Superboy and Robin rising to the occasion. Read Full Review

    This series has been one of the gems of the Rebirth relaunch. Although the next issue promises to be a great conclusion to the series, I don't look forward to the series ending. I hope DC has plans to give the duo a new monthly series in the near future. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Bill Heuer Apr 20, 2018

    Overall, the writing and artwork continue to keep Super Sons a must read for me every month and this story gets to involve the Justice League so some good father/son crossover looks to be imminent which has led to great scenes in previous arcs. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Apr 18, 2018

    The Super Sons have definitely gotten themselves into some trouble this time. Kid Amazo's return has served as the most intense enemy they have dealt with so far. Fighting your average psychopath or world conqueror is a normal day, but this flipped their world right on its head. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Aron Pohara Apr 20, 2018

    Super Sons is a series that is going to be sorely missed. It's a book about friendship, about coming of age and about overcoming adversity. It was one of the staples of the Rebirth line and a great read for kids of all ages. It's a comic that should be made into an animated show. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Apr 24, 2018

    I don't know if I quite understand the new Amazo but it is good to see the boys have a rogue in their gallery. And having them save their fathers will be a nice coda to this book. But I am still pretty bummed this book is ending. Read Full Review

    Peter J. Tomasi's script is sharp and he has managed to soften Damian Wayne and make him more likable without losing the core of what makes Damian, Damian. he also set up a solid (if a little predictable) cliffhanger for the next issue. Read Full Review

    Impulse Gamer - Mark McKechnie Apr 18, 2018

    This was a pretty good book overall. As mentioned above it is the first book in a new story arc, which makes it an accessible read to someone that doesnt usually follow this series, and because of this there is a lot of exposition. One of the nice things that Peter J. Tomasi does is interspersing the exposition with character development, humour, and one good action scene. The cliff-hanger leaves us really wondering what will happen next, and really raises the stakes for the next issue. This book is a fairly easy read, and quite enjoyable. Its not a challenging story or ground-breaking, but being a book focused on the friendship of Superboy and Robin, it doesnt need to be. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws Apr 19, 2018

    For the penultimate issue of Super Sons, Tomasi and team deliver what you'd expect: strong dialogue, great visuals, and a good time with the title characters. What the story lacks in depth is more than made up for with the sheer entertainment value of seeing Jon and Damian interact with each other. They've grown to be friends with each other, and in some ways, it feels like we've become friends with them too. Hopefully next month's final issue can deliver and send the boys out on a high note.

    This series has been a mixed bag overall, with some suffering from the unpleasant dynamic between the leads, but others bringing a real sense of fun and adventure to the DCU. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Apr 18, 2018

    Maybe it's because this book is ending soon, but I expected a lot more from this issue.  It looked great, but the story was mostly action with a bit of setup sprinkled in for good measure.   Read Full Review

    Supersons deliver once again - issue is full of action, and as usual, offers a nice, believable insight into Jon and Damian's friendship. I love it - Supersons belong to the very small group of series that seem to always be at least good, and you can expect great time reading them. This month is not an exception.

    A solid issue, with striking art, particularly in the underwater scene. It rivaled Jimenez's top moments early in the series. Seeing Jon become a little more self-assured (especially as I am reading baby Jon in Lois and Clark Road to Rebirth) is a delight.

    The only thing I don't like about Super Sons is that Midtown Comics and others alphabetize it after Superman even though there's a space between Super and Sons, so it should precede Superman alphabetically.
    Theirs is a perfect pairing. Damian mitigates Jon's goody-two-shoes persona while highlighting his best qualities. Jon gives Damian plenty of room for the entertaining good-natured curmudgeonliness, while tethering him to the core principles that unite them.

    My two criticisms in this issue were 1. shouldn't we be exploring more villians for this world's finest duo before bringing back Kid Amazo (even though it seems there's no longer any Kid in Amazo)? and 2. the last panel seemed jarringly unlikely (really? the entire more
