Super Sons 04

SUPER SONS #4 ends the first arc of the unlikely duo of Superboy and Robin. Super Sons was among the first titles I picked up during the launch of the DC Rebirth titles. Super Sons #4 finally reveals who the big baddie is and I believe that Kid Amazo is the perfect villain for the first arc. It’s like reading the PG version of Amazo vs. Superman and Batman.

Peter Tomasi‘s writing is a perfect fit for this title. Reading Super Sons feels like watching a weekly animated cartoon. Nothing too serious, just the normal good vs. evil kind of stuff, which separates this from the other Rebirth titles. I love how he writes the banters between Damian and Jon, it clearly shows the difference in their personality. Superboy nor Robin doesn’t outshine one another but shows the difference in their powers makes up for the other’s weakness.

Jorge Jimenez‘s art shines bright on this title. His drawings really makes the title feel more like an animated series. His art style works well with Peter Tomasi’s writing. I love how he draws the the character expressions, and action scenes, they’re exaggerated just like how you would see it in a DC animated movie/series. They’re now my favorite creative team in comics today.

Super Sons #4 shows the direction where this title is headed. The dysfunctional relationship between the son of the Bat and the son of the Man of Steel. Their constant bickering, their different personalities makes this title highly readable. It makes you wonder what they’ll end up doing next, are they up for a new adventure or would their iconic parents ground them? There’s so much potential for this title but the challenge for the creative team is how to maintain this title entertaining.
