Yet again, Peter Tomasi and crew delivers a fantastic issue of Super Sons, and while it is becoming somewhat difficult for me to find new and exciting ways to say how great this series is, or how much I look forward to reading it each month, I’m going to try.
“‘When I Grow Up’ part three! It’s Super-Son vs Bat-Son as the exciting new series continues! Kid Amazo is ready to rip the hearts out of the world’s not-so-finest super duo. Face to face with their newest—and first—villain, Jonathan and Damian strike out the only way they know how…at each other!”
As the plot begins to thicken, and the story starts to take off, Super Sons, thankfully, is still an enjoyable read. I’m pointing this out, because many new comic book series have started out with a strong #1, but have failed to stay interesting once the ball got a rollin’. Sure, the plot of this arc is far from complex, but it works very well for the team of protagonists and remains both fun and accessible.
I’m still quite impressed with Tomasi’s skill in terms of placing children in danger in a way that is not only entertaining but also respects their intelligence and sill-sets. I also enjoy reading the brief bouts of boyhood banter that Tomasi interjects into certain scenes as if to remind the reader that despite their incredible abilities, our protagonists are still very young, and at times, quite immature.
I have yet to be given a reason to dislike reading this comic, and thus, I have yet to be given a reason to not recommend it to others. I hope that this doesn’t change anytime soon, and am confident that this series will continue to be great.
