Reviews Super Sons, Volume 1

  • Christy
    I laughed a lot while reading this book. Loved seeing Jon and Damian develop in light of their fathers.
  • Scott (GrilledCheeseSamurai)
    Damian & Jonathan sneak out after bedtime and hijinx ensue.But you know what? It's pretty darn entertaining. Sure, Damian is a little shit head and Jonathan is pretty much a pussy...but they have that same chemistry that their two fathers have.I read this in single issues last night before bed and I haveta say that I am sure glad that I did. It's like when you have been drinking coffee all morning and then you have a glass of orange juice. It's a...

    More like a 3.5, review to come

    This is what DC needs. More please! World: Jimenez's art is sublime and perfect for this title. It's kinetic, full of big bold emotions and over the top just like the book needs to be. It's gorgeous. The world building is also fantastic, living in the little nook that these two have in the DCU. Everything tonally in this series is brighter and lighter, even Batman and that's a good thing.Story: Great little tale that is great cause of the amazing...

    [Read as single issues]Have I talked about how Peter Tomasi and Patrick Gleason did superb work on Batman & Robin, and are doing superb work on Superman? Well, now Tomasi has taken the two best parts of those comics and combined them into one - meet the Super Sons, Damian Wayne and Jon Kent, better known as Superboy and Robin.When the two are kind of thrown together by their parents, they don't exactly get along, but this opening arc of the serie...

    Peter J. Tomasi is one of my favorite Batman authors; this title was soooooo much fun to read and the art was fantastic.
  • Eri (Airy Reads)
    Where do I start with this? It's a volume of pure delight and adorable adventure, and I loved the art so much. You'd have to be hard pressed not to warm up to Jon and Damian, ESPECIALLY JON. review to come closer to release.I received a review copy courtesy of the publisher

    I first read Super Sons in their monthly single issues format and then took the chance to re-read and review properly when I found the complete volume available to request on Netgalley!This was such a fun read! I’m not up to date on the Rebirth event, so I think I can safely say that this is pretty easy to understand for people who have not really followed the other series and are curious about this one. There are references to past events but ...
  • Maxym Karpovets
    One of the best Rebirth series so far. Tomasi knows how to write a story about family relationships, but this time we meet a duet from two opposing families: Superboy of a typical American family and Robin with from not an ideal, but still family. They are opposites in everything, but that's why they manage to cope with obstacles, which often create for themselves). Tomasi easily and skillfully develops the plot without resorting to unnecessary c...
  • Abigail Williams
    (Read as single issues.)I don't really have the words to express why I like Super Sons so much. I find the duo of Damian Wayne and Jonathan Kent to be highly entertaining. I think the biggest thing that comes across to me is that they are kids and they're written that way. It's so believable when they fight with each other and call each other names (it might not be in this volume but at some point Jon calls Damian "Dork Knight" which I find absur...
  • Liana
    When I Grow Up is, if I’m being honest, the most fun I’ve had in a while reading a comic book. It’s fun, it’s entertaining, it’s – for lack of a better word – a very cute read. Jon and Damian fight over ridiculous things, aka Jonathan being taller, and their constant bickering made me laugh out loud in multiple occasions.I also loved the Clark/Bruce dynamic and the friendship we saw them explaining to their kids; they are, honestly,...
  • Veronica
    ARC via Netgalley. A fun opposite-attract story about Batman and Superman's sons (Damian Wayne and Jon Kent) teaming up for an investigation. I don't know anything about DC Rebirth but the larger universe isn't really mentioned so as long as you roll with Clark and Lois having a kid (and Lex Luthor moonlighting as a Superman alternate??? no idea what that was about) I don't think a wider knowledge of DC's current titles is necessary. The artist f...
  • Thaddeus Rice
    Two was...ok.I wanted to like this. I wanted this to be great...but somehow it fell flat. Why? The characters seem little more than polar extremes, hyperbole to its worst effect. Damian is more annoying, more egotistical, more one-dimensional than he has been in a long time- and Jonathan is too naive, too unsure of himself, too amateurish- as an obvious counterpoint. Add to this the weirdness of Damian's 'sister' and flying cycle as we...
  • Mindy
    I have to admit that I've long loved the argumentative friendship between Batman and Superman. This series is the interplay of their sons, Superboy and Robin, and the same basic dynamic between them, as these two begin to team up. Add in teen and preteen angst and it's a great comedy, that's also pretty relatable to kids. The stories in this volume definitely flowed together Ana keeper me entertained. I read the entire thing in one sitting withou...
  • Lauryn
    I found the the story to be new and fun. I don't normally read superheroe stories but this one caught my eye so o thought I would give it a try. It's interesting to see robin be Batman's son I always thought robin was Batman's nephew but after a long conversation with my boyfriend we found out robin is Batman's adopted son. I did find robin to be a prude and really annoying at some parts but I have never read a comic with robin in it so I don't k...
  • Jessica Woods
    Super Sons Vol. 1 is one of the best graphic novels I have read this year. Visually pleasing and laugh out loud funny, the artist and writer bring Superboy and Robin to life just as I pictured them. Conceited and sarcastic, Damien leads Jon into trouble as the boys fight their way into being friends just like their dads. Highly entertaining and totally addicting, Super Sons quickly became part of my to-read list for the foreseeable future. My vol...
  • Nathaniel Darkish
    I really didn't know what to expect about this book since it's a new title, but I really had a lot of fun with this. The art wasn't my favorite-- never been the biggest fan of big head, thin body style-- but it actually grew on me as the book progressed. The story was pretty solid and exciting and did a great job of showcasing the characters. Just a lot of fun.
  • Bethany
    Four stars. Read in single issues.This is a simple, uncomplicated comic. And I love it. I love Jon and Damian griping at each other. I love watching Bruce and Lois and Clark try to be parents. I love the expressive artwork (particularly the characters' faces). And I love having a fun, silly adventure to look forward to. I'm hooked.
  • George
    In a past life I worked with Tomasi at DC Comics, he and I had a few discussions about why I feel kid superheroes are the worst. With a great story, fantastic art and colors, Super Sons makes me take back most of that. A great read for fans of all ages.
  • Heider Carlos
    It's fun and funny. Full of action and clever lines. Amazing art. It feels fresh. It's everything I thought it would be, and sometimes this is just what I need.
  • Jorge Lopez
    Hands down, one of the best Rebirth series right now.
  • Emmanuel Nevers
    Great Pairing, this has been one of the most fun titles of the Rebirth thus far!!
  • Krys
    Got a chance to read courtesy of netgalley and D.C. Full review to come.
  • Iris Nevers
    I love this pairing of Superboy and Robin. They're fighting and trying to get along (kind of) and both trying to inact their own form of justice. All-in-all, a great read!
  • Allison
    SO WONDERFUL. Great adult-kids crossover series for DC.
