    I wonder if Jon being propped up by the Titans gave him a little bit more confidence to stand up to his partner. I love this sort of prickly friendship that we are seeing unfurl here. Just great stuff. So another fun, rapid fire, entertaining issue. I am loving this title. It is just clicking! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton Aug 18, 2017

    Superboy does not become a full member of the Teen Titans in this outing, but certainly the ground work gets laid to bring him into that group. And I sure hope that happens! Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Aug 16, 2017

    Super Sons is all about fun and embracing lighter stories so silly moments like Beast Boy turning into a bird and threatening to poop on Jon's nose is actually good for a laugh. When Robin can't remember the Titans' catchphrase, Jon isn't mean-spirited about feeding him the line. This is a charming title and this two-parter was a great showcase of its full potential.

    The Batman Universe - Jessica Nilo Alves Aug 18, 2017

    Focused on Superboy and his interactions with the Teen Titans, this issue will make you wish the Super Sons team took over the Teen Titans. Also, their invitation for Jon to join them whenever he feels like it gives me hope for a team with Superboy in it. Read Full Review

    The DC Bros - Dillyn Chadwick Aug 18, 2017

    Super Sons #7 is so much fun. Tomasi does a great job writing these characters with fun moments and dialog while Jimenez provides such amazing art, some of my favorite art in all of Rebirth. This issue makes me wish Jon was a teen already so he can join the team but what we get in this issue is good enough for the time being. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Aug 16, 2017

    I reserve judgment for the ending until the next issue, as it seemed like the story wrapped up nicely until it suddenly jumpstarted for that cliffhanger. I'm all for shorter arcs in monthly books and I hope Tomasi and Jimenez wow me with the next issue. Despite this, this might have been the best issue of the series. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Aug 16, 2017

    Super Sons #7 gave us the first of what I do hope is more team-ups with the likes of the Titans. This was still all about Robin and Superboy, but the way they interacted with everyone else made you almost forget for a second that this was a solo adventure book. Not a bad feeling of course when this book captures the fun side in being a superhero. It's no easy life or without darkness, but Super Sons gives you the best of both worlds. Read Full Review

    Shoot The Breeze Comics - Scott Shuken Aug 20, 2017

    Peter Tomasi is a really strong writer when dealing with teams, and that fact shines through in this issue. His ability to jump into the new Teen Titans lineup is impressive, as well as showing how the dynamic alters with the addition of Superboy. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Aug 21, 2017

    Super Sons #7 was another fun entry in one of DC Comics best titles. Peter Tomasi clear understanding of Robin, Superboy and the Teen Titans shined in this issue. Their interaction together was a big highlight for this issue. Bringing in the Multiverse into the fun was not a bad thing either. Read Full Review

    Super Sons #7 was a fun read and will entertain fans. Upon reflection however, it is losing itself to the Titans. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws Aug 16, 2017

    Super Sons has settled into a groove over the past few months. It's a strong title, though it has yet to attain the excellence that it had in its opening issues. Still, it's a charming, highly entertaining book in its own right. The characters are strong, the artwork is fantastic, and the overall energy is tangible. At its core this is about Superboy's growth, and I'm glad to be along for the ride. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Aug 16, 2017

    After such an intriguing start to this arc, this issue is a rush to the finish line and just feels rushed and forced.  I love the idea of Jon joining the Teen Titans, but this really isn't the book to give us that.  I loved Jorge Jimenez's art, but this issue fell flat for me. Read Full Review
