Super Sons #8 Review

It’s another fun chapter for the Super Sons, thanks to Tomasi and Jimenez. Superboy and Robin wind up stuck in another dimension, and have to face the same villains they did in the previous issue, more or less.

Kraklow and the Faceless Hunter from Saturn are far more dangerous this time around, and that puzzles the young heroes for a while, until they piece together that they are dealing with alternate versions of the villains. Gotta give some kudos to Superboy for being the one to clue into that, and to Tomasi for allowing the boy to figure out something before Robin does.

As with all the issues of Super Sons so far, this issue features wildly dynamic art, and a lot of crisp and funny dialogue. Tomasi and Jimenez have made this a must read comic book.

So many of the best moments are the little ones. Superboy’s thumbs up and wink to one of the kids on the planet they are stuck on is such a superb panel in and of itself, a great way to convey the endless optimism and enthusiasm of the lad.

Jimenez also does a great job rendering the Faceless Hunters, who look far more menacing than they did back in the 60s.

A good issue from start to finish, with a strong teaser for the next issue.

Rating: 9 /10
