    Jon Kent and Ian Wayne, the sons of Superman and Batman, are teaming up again to help their friend, Candace, find out more about her mysterious past. She has had a vision that she must return to her home country, and the super sons help her to escape. Four creepy girls have been watching Candace for their own evil purposes, and Candace must find a way to outwit them before they catch up to her. This book has the same good and bad elements as the first book in the series. I liked the colorful Jon Kent and Ian Wayne, the sons of Superman and Batman, are teaming up again to help their friend, Candace, find out more about her mysterious past. She has had a vision that she must return to her home country, and the super sons help her to escape. Four creepy girls have been watching Candace for their own evil purposes, and Candace must find a way to outwit them before they catch up to her. This book has the same good and bad elements as the first book in the series. I liked the colorful artwork, and the interesting characters, but the plot jumps around too much and was difficult to follow. The scenes don't flow naturally and the pacing is awkward. I was left with too many questions, and there are so many things that are not explained. I really wanted to see more character development for Jon and Ian in this second volume, but they feel sort of stagnant. Instead of their friendship growing and the two boys learning to trust each other more, they spend most of the book fighting and arguing. It's only Candace's need that finally gets them working together to help her. I'm not sure if I want to continue reading this series. I find it so difficult to read and follow what is happening in the plot, and there are so many holes in the story. It is good, but I think it could be better. One thing I really loved was Candace's story line and her discovery of more of her past. That mystery really intrigued me, and I enjoyed reading about her.

The virus attacking the people of Wyndemere, and Lois Lane, is getting worse. With time running out, the Super Sons need to procure a sample of the germ- and fast! Meanwhile, the deadly sisters from Candace’s mysterious past in Landis are on her trail. Everytime is appears that Candace has escaped them, a small little miracle alerts her pursuers to her whereabouts. Dozens and dozens of birds just seem to flock to the mysterious young lady. Does Candace have special powers? Unfortunately, I was rather disappointed with this second chapter in the Super Sons story. According to sources, Ridley Pearson’s alternate take on Damian Wayne and Jon Kent is supposed to be 3 volumes long. With time running to tell the story out, I felt that Pearson tries just way too hard to cram everything into this book. There’s just too much going on and it’s quite confusing. If I remember correctly, volume 1 had a map of Coleumbria and surrounding territories. This volume really needs it as Jon and Damian AND Candace seem to keep going all over the place. Sometimes back and forth! It was all rather quite hard to keep up with! While I am looking forward to the final chapter, I have some apprehension that the conclusion is going to be even more confusing with just too much to keep straight. Don’t get me wrong. I am a big fan of Ridley Pearson. I loved his Peter and the Starcatchers series that he wrote with humorist Dave Berry. But even then, you could tell that Pearson and company just had so many great ideas. Yet, the writers had 4 huge volumes to work with. A trio of 140- some odd paged graphic novels just isn’t enough space to sufficiently cover all of the plot points that are going on with the sons of the World’s Finest. The finale has got to be super massive (and super clear and concise If not; what started out as a modern day classic is going to become a disaster of epic proportions.

    I received this book as an ARC from DC Zoom in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own. Super Sons was such a success at our library. Everyone just loved how Batman and Superman had their sons Damian Wayne and Jon Kent looking for adventure and saving the day just like their dads. With their father's captured and the city in almost ruins, in this sequel it's up to Jon and Ian to not only save the city but Jon's mother Lois Lane.

Ridley Pearson does it again with more compelling dialogue and plot twists that made this comic more enjoyable to read each time. In this case, the sequel was definitely better than the first. We will consider adding this title to our JGraphic novel collection at our library. That is why we give this book 5 stars.

    I have to say, I was less than impressed with this series. The plot's practically all over the place and part of the time I don't know what's going on. I get that the general premise is find the cure for a deadly virus and help a powered princess from her evil council; but nothing makes sense. Ian and Jon's friendship is just as messy; one moment they're good friends, the next Ian's being a butthead. For something called the Super Sons, they sure don't even fit into the overall plot that much. I have to say, I was less than impressed with this series.

So much just goes on that plots and methods change on the fly. I don't know if reading the first volume would've helped but I doubt it would've helped.

    Thank you to NetGalley, Ridley Pearson, and DC Entertainment for the opportunity to read Super Sons: The Foxglove Mission in exchange for an honest review. The first volume was okay, and I was curious as to where the story would go, mostly because of my interest in Candace. She seemed like she would have interesting character development, and she did, I suppose. And...uh, what's the plot here? Something about finding a cure to a thing?

The title comes from Candace and four other girls who all have the ability to control some type of animal. By far the most interesting point of the book... The pacing is odd... it's swift in a negative way, with constant shifts between scenes with little/no transition. At least the art is decent!

    I was very lukewarm on the first book, but this one really didn’t hit it for me. I’m relieved to see other reviewers mention the disjointed pacing, because I really thought my copy was missing pages. The story bounces to and fro without orienting the reader, and I’m even more put off by the fact that these characters don’t behave like their comics counterparts. The plot is spinning its wheels before the third (and ostensibly final) volume, but I don’t know if I’m interested enough to see it I was very lukewarm on the first book, but this one really didn’t hit it for me.

Put another way, did he who made the Kingdom Keepers make thee? (Because I love those books!)

    Super Sons: The Foxglove Mission continues where the first episode ends. There are several things going on in this story, of which the two boys are a part of, but only a part. The entire story is fragmented into various mini-stories, and as a whole it does not earn the right to be a Super Sons story. Like the last episode, the magic and comedy is gone, and the characters are vanilla to the point that I don't recognize them as I do the previous versions of the Super Sons adventures.

Here they are weak and do little to show themselves as the heroes they should be. Their characters are not developed enough to be what they should: heroic, powerful, funny, or awkward.

    Graphic novel The story of the Superman and Batman's sons continues. They are getting closer to finding the virus and saving Lois Lane. Candace finds the special oil she will need to become the Empress. Tilly c0ntinues to problems solve and rescue the others. The artwork draws readers further in to the storyline.

    Much like the first book in this series, I found this story hard to follow. The characters are not developed at all and I often had no idea who some people were or what was going on. I also don't think the climate change story line was well. Mostly this left me confused and uninterested in continuing on with the series.

    I really want to like this but in the first book they supersons were hiding their powers but this skipped over some "coming out" moments. What did I miss? I hope I stupidly missed out a book or something and the continuity problem is my fault entirely. The art is beautiful and I really want to find new lines to share with the kiddo but I am left confused and hating myself wondering how messed up.

    The second volume of this series finds the young duo and their friends trying to unravel the mysteries of Lois's illness and climate disasters. I love the diversity in this series and how the stories are related to current events.

    I like that this series stands on its own, but I felt like this second volume diverged a little too far from the path. It didn't feel like DC at all. It was enjoyable enough though. I'll stick with it. For more on this tune in to this episode of the All the Books Show: https://soundcloud.com/allthebooks/ep...
