The When I Grow Up arc continues with the World’s Smallest facing off against Kid Amazo, Batman, Superman, and each other of course!
Damian and Jon bickering back and forth is always the most entertaining part of Super Sons. This issue being no different, however, each outing they get a bit closer to becoming a coherent team. While the pacing here is brisk, there is plenty of dialogue to break up the action with it never feeling too wordy. Tomasi really captures both Damian and Jon here with the dialogue, paired with Jimenez and Sanchez on art this book feels like a labor of love.
Kid Amazo is revealed in this issue, with quite a bit of back story and explanation. Creating a new villain for this new super team that really feels like a nice fit into the story. However, Tomasi makes all of this fly by, allowing the readers to discover things as the characters in the book do. Adding in breaks with action and infighting along the way, it never feels like we just received an information dump.
Both Jimenez and Sanchez make this title a pleasure to read. Managing to depict both a hardened dark Damian and an innocent bright Jon in the same page. Jimenez’s expressions being a highlight here, telling the story without words. Not to be forgotten Sanchez’s colors make for some beautiful panels, depicting tone along the way. Paired together you can thumb through the title without even reading and get a general idea of what is going. Now that is impressive.
Super Sons #3 is an action-packed sarcasm rollercoaster. With the newest and the first villain revealed as Kid Amazo, there are fun times to be had. Add in that final page reveal which leaving us wondering what will happen next to the World’s Smallest Duo.
