Next month sees the launch of ‘Challenge of the Super Sons’, a brand new digital first series from Peter J. Tomasi, Max Raynor and DC Comics which picks up directly after 2018’s ‘Adventures of the Super Sons’ maxi-series.
Here’s the official blurb:
Picking up where Tomasi’s sensational Super Sons and Adventures of the Super Sons left off, Damian and Jon—the assassin-trained son of Batman and the boy-next-door son of Superman—tackle their greatest threat ever: the deadly DOOM SCROLL. Whoever (whomever? We can never tell) has their name inscribed on this ancient and magical parchment will be killed post-haste. Now, the evil powers-that-be have written the names of the Justice League on the deadly doc, and Superboy and Robin are the only ones who can save their dads from certain doom! The catch? No one can know it was the boys that saved them.
Speaking about the series, Tomasi said “Stories about Jon and Damian at this time in their lives allows me to tap back into those early years of my own life of being a crazy kid, while also allowing me to mine the fertile ground of my own son’s current adventures, which in turn helps keep me tapped into the general zeitgeist of today’s youth and what they’re going through and thinking about.”
He continued, adding “Jon and Damian are so different—the angel and the devil on your shoulder so to speak—with each one having such a distinctive backstory and perspective that the drama between them is organic and damn easy to bring to life on the page. Best of all, it’s a helluva lotta fun!”
As well as Raynor, the fourteen-part series will also feature additional guest art spots from Jorge Corona (We Are Robin) and Evan Stanley (Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic Boom), and will debut digitally on December 14th 2020.
