‘Adventures of the Super Sons #7’ (review)

Written by Peter J. Tomasi
Illustrated by Carlo Barberi
Published by DC Comics


The Super Sons are off planet and it’s been a pretty fantastic time.

I’m loving what Peter J. Tomasi has brought to the table writing this comic book. It’s fun and fast paced and always manages to put a smile on my face. This issue follows that pattern and it’s a solid comic book indeed.

The issue opens with Joker Jr. peering through a little hole wondering where the Super Sons are. Then, the rest of the Gang show up. That’s when Rex Luthor asks that very question, “Where are the Super Sons?” aloud.

It seems that the Gang is all dressed in “prison orange” and that the Super Sons are nowhere to be seen. What is going on?

We then flashback to a week prior to see Robin and the Gang getting the hell beat out of them by a bunch of aliens. Superboy seems to have been captured!

And the aliens want to capture everybody else! Who are the aliens they are all fighting and just what is going on here? And just when you think things can’t get anymore nutty, they do!  Robin comes up against a character called Al-X.

Just who is Al-X? He’s the youngest Green Lantern ever!

Well, he’s actually a Green Lantern in training. Robin and Al-X have a cool meeting where Robin recruits him to his cause. Working together, they go up against the Gang and the aliens. It’s a boatload of fun.
Barberi Illustrates the hell out of this. It’s a great time because the story by Tomasi is fun and fast and Barberi rises up to make the illustrations unique. There’s a lot of energy and good humor happening here throughout.

By the end, they find Superboy.

And it’s a beautiful last page they had me excited and wanting more. The only downside is that there are only five more issues left in this series. Hopefully DC continues it past the limited series, because this is just a great read overall. I’m enjoying myself every time I pick up this comic book and want more stories featuring these characters.
