Tomasi and Jiminez’s Super Sons may only be two issues in, but the quality of the book so far makes it a must-read for any fan of DC’s Rebirth. Tomasi truly gets kids; and it is his ability to make these young superhero scions both likable and compelling that makes this issue such a resounding success. His Damien Wayne and Jonathon Kent are fully fleshed out characters whose voices reflect their age. Their partnership has enough chemistry to make reading their dialogue a pleasure. The plot moves along at a brisk pace. Tomasi begins with a delightful cameo with Superman’s premier villain in the issue’s first half, as well as setting up the arc’s main villain in the latter half.
Tomasi’s script is well-matched by Jiminez’s art. Colorful and expressive, Jiminez’s pencils channel the zaniness of the issue’s proceedings. His Damien and Jon are drawn in a cartoonish manner, but this helps distinguish them from more adult characters. His art is on top this issue despite a few moments of odd proportions.
