    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil May 25, 2018

    Super Sons has been a stellar title, both as a companion to Tomasi and Gleason's Superman, and in its own right. This book has definitely been one of the Rebirth era's biggest successes, and I eagerly look forward to “Vol. 2.” Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder May 30, 2018

    The World's Soon-to-Be Finest are very much their fathers' sons. Tomasi has written them so brilliantly that it's clear that while they still have plenty of growing up to do, they are on the right trajectory to surpass the cape and cowl before long. There are plenty of winks and nudges to the fans, and there is a peculiar type of triumph that'll make you smile when you get to the end. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Charlie Chipman May 23, 2018

    This is it, this is the end of the Super Sons...for now. Super Sons (2017-) #16 is a fitting final chapter in what has been a thoroughly entertaining series. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze May 24, 2018

    Super Sons #16 was an excellent story arc for fans of this book looking for another reason to believe in this team being more than a younger version of the World's Finest. They have their own way of tackling problems, and their solutions aren't so predictable either. For another arc that was a few issues, the pacing was excellent and held momentum from start to finish.

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws May 23, 2018

    Super Sons is a thrilling, enjoyable read that's just as much about character as it is about heroics. That's what makes it stand apart, and that's what makes it a success. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz May 25, 2018

    This has been a nice little run for Superboy and the Damian Wayne Robin. They seemed an unlikely pairing to star in a title. Yet, good writing and fine characterizations prevailed. I'll be reading the new series come August. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Joshua Lapin-Bertone May 25, 2018

    I agree with the Super Grandkids; I want to know what happens next. This series was a fun twist on the World's Finest dynamic and a great book for young readers looking to get into the greater DC Universe. I'm counting down the days until the next volume. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez May 28, 2018

    Super Sons #16 was fun way to end to this first volume of the series. Peter Tomasi delivered an ending that paid off on the growth Robin and Superboy have showed over the course of this series run. The ending with Superman and Batman praising their sons felt well-earned as it set up the next phase of Superboy and Robin's adventures as a duo. If you are a Batman or Superman fan and you haven't read Super Sons than I highly recommend fixing that right away. This is a fun series that will put a smile on your face. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield May 25, 2018

    The series was at its best when the friendship between the characters seemed genuine rather than antagonistic. I hope we see more of that in the next run. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison May 26, 2018

    Super Sons #16 is a fun and energetic finale to Peter J. Tomasis tale of two sons. The heroes continue to entertain, and it leaves it open-ended for the upcoming Adventures of the Super Sons maxiseries. In any case, this book earns a recommendation. Check it out. Read Full Review
