From a common reader pov, this might not be a 10/10, maybe not even close, but I couldn't care less, the Super Sons are my favorite duo and Tomasi is one of my favorite writers of all time. Reading this issue put a smile on my face from the beggining to end. I'm so sad they are not getting a new title but my hope will never die...

At the same time I really enjoy what Tom Taylor is doing, a Superman that fight other kinds of enemies, the plot is stuck, in 8 issues the story hasn't evolved a lot, I'm sure this will be way better to read on trade, but as a monthly book, is kinda slow.
