Jon Kent learns it’s better to be dead than red… Kryptonite, that is! Traveling the cosmos to get home and escape the intergalactic teen baddies known as the Gang, Superboy and Robin wind up on the so-called “Planet of Mystery.” There, Superboy deals with Red Kryptonite exposure, which throws his powers out of whack, while the planet haunts and taunts them both with nightmare creatures. They’ll need to wrap up this rest stop ASAP though, as the Gang is hot on their tails looking for a pound of flesh-which is a lethal amount when you’re a tween!

Review: Adventures of the Super Sons #1

Check out the lost and secret adventures of Damian Wayne (Robin) and Jon Kent (Superboy) in this flashback miniseries that takes a deep dive into the bombastic bromance between the sons of the DC Universe’s greatest heroes. It’s an epic dual storyline that transcends current events, as Superboy and Robin find themselves targets of an interstellar team of young badasses called the Gang.

I loved Super Sons. The comic series was a breathe of fresh air. It mixed action, humor, with a childlike sense of fun. And fun is the name of the game as we got to experience Damian’s cold outlook on life mixed with the wide eyed naivete of Jonathan. The two are so far apart, opposites, and in that they’re the perfect team playing off of each other so well. Damian’s seriousness mixed with Jon’s sense of excitement and fun created a combination that was impossible to not enjoy. For me, it was infectious.

Luckily, we’re getting more of the two with Adventures of the Super Sons that has them teaming up again in this “lost story” and coming up against a group of villains that feels so perfect in so many ways. The two battle a villain and get you into their pattern of things. There’s lots of fun as to two battle evil, and each other to some extent. There’s a large dose of humor that adds to the excitement and entertainment of it all, writer Peter J. Tomasi makes sure to keep it all going with a grin. It’s all a build up to reset the status quo in a way and introduce new readers before we’re introduced to the bad guys they’ll be facing and those bad guys are awesome. While some may roll their eyes, I smiled, laughed, and got super excited for the Super Sons.

Part of that excitement is due to the art of Carlo Barberi, inks by Art Thibert, and color by Protobunker, along with lettering by Rob Leigh. The art has an energy about it that matches Tomasi’s writing. The color, the panels, the focus, there’s an excitement about it all that matches the youthful leads. The designs are fantastic and Barberi’s style is a personal favorite of mine. The combination of art and story just creates an energy about it all.

And I think that’s the greatest strength of this issue, and the previous series, it remembers these are kids. The story treats them as kids, doing things like running off to get popcorn in the middle of battle. They go back and forth, like kids. The art style feels young and full of energy. It’s a complete package that knows what it is from story through the art. And because of that, it’s beyond fun.
