Welcome back, sorry that I have missed a few, but we are back to reviewing comics every day! Today, Seppin is going to be reviewing Adventures of the Super Sons #2 written by Peter J. Tomasi and art by Art Thibert and Carlo Barberi.
Super Sons is a really fun book. I love the relationship between Damian and Jon. It leads to a lot of great one-liners and really funny moments. Peter Tomasi writes them both really well. The art fits them both too.
As for the story, I like it, but it’s a little hard to wrap your head around. This little legion of doom are all aliens from a planet that watches the Earth’s heroes like their a television show is very meta and crazy to think about. I do like the young Lex Luther and the younger Joker because it is just a bunch of kids trying to replicate the Earth’s mightiest villains.
In this issue, we get a lot more on the bad guys, (bad kids?), and their backstory that I explained up above. We also see that one of them is actually a good guy forced into this situation via little Lex’s plans. I like this, but that is really all that we get from this issue. Damian and Jon getaway and we are going to see a space battle between the two ships. Awesome!
Overall, it is a fun adventure that you should all give a try.
(How good is the story? Does it stand up to others?)
(Does it tell the story? Does it work well with the character?)
(Does this story need to be told? Is it helping the Character?)
(Is the character represented well? Does the writer understand the character?)
