Exclusive Preview: ‘Adventures of the Super Sons’ #10
We’ve got a pretty cool preview for you this morning: A sneak peek at Adventures of the Super Sons #10. The Super Sons are the sons of Batman and Superman, and they are the lead characters in the very first DC Zoom graphic novel, Super Sons: The PolarShield Project. That graphic novel is completely different from the monthly comics, which writer Peter Tomasi is pitching toward slightly older readers, ages 10-16. J. Caleb Mozzocco reviewed the first collected edition, Super Sons vol. 1: When I Grow Up, back in October 2017. In the current issue, which is due out on Wednesday, the excitement is turned up to 11:
It’s the runaway train from hell! Superboy and Robin better hold on for dear life as they ride a 20-megaton cosmic engine of mass combustion (that’s a pun!) into their final battle with Rex Luthor! But Rex has got a brand-new army of shiny young super-villains ready to conquer all they survey…will the son of Batman and the son of Superman be enough to stop him?
The comic is due out on Wednesday, May 1. Enjoy!
