Breaking out of an alien prison. Stranded on a world with a robot Jonah Hex. Fighting a superpowered miniature version of the Injustice League. All in all, a good summer vacation for Robin and Superboy. Come for the adventure, stay for the wonderful relationship-building between the two young Super Sons.

The back half of this maxi-series is quite strong. Tomasi has managed to write a solid second half of this maxi-series that not only wraps up the story nicely but also allows each issue to stand on its own. I really don’t know how he did it. You can read each issue as a standalone story and they work all the while providing enough connective tissue to advance the main storyline.



All in all, this maxi-series was extremely enjoyable to read. Tomasi thoroughly understands both Damien Wayne and Jon Kent’s [ Robin and Superboy ] characters. That grasp of character is what makes this title works: it builds up their relationship and creates a fun story to read. A strong plus across the back half of this maxi-series was the fairly consistent art team. Even with a fill-in artist on one issue, keeping Photobucket as the same colorist united that issue with the rest of the series. I have a greater appreciation for editorial decisions that keep colorists consistent on a book—they can help make or break a feeling of continuity. The last issue leaves open the possibility of another Super Sons series. I hope it happens.
