Comic Book Review: Super Sons: Book One - The Polarshield Project

Now here is a book that truly is for all ages! DC Zoom and its parent publisher definitely have a title to be proud of with Ridley Pearson's Super Sons: Book One - The Polarshield Project (I'll be referring to it as Super Sons from here on out). What we get here is what comic books should be: a tale that can be enjoyed by everyone. There's no sex, profanity, or other questionable content. It's two junior superheroes doing what they do best - taking down the bad guys.

The polar ice caps have nearly melted away, causing devastation to coastal cities. Erratic, deadly weather forces everyone inland, tearing families apart. Earth is facing its greatest crisis—and Superman and Batman are nowhere to be found.

Jon Kent and Damian Wayne are opposite in every way except one—they are the sons of the World’s Greatest Heroes! To uncover a global conspiracy, this unlikely dynamic duo will need to learn to trust each other and work together to save the Earth. But who is the mysterious Candace? And what secrets does she hold that could be the key to everything?

Super Sons has it all. Bad guys versus good guys. A very slight bit of underlying romance. A message about the responsibility we hold towards our environment. It also shows what we all can do if we work together to better our world.

The artwork for Super Sons by Ile Gonzalez is sure to appeal to the younger demographic it's aimed at. You can definitely see the anime influence behind her style. However, it doesn't lean so far that direction as to hinder those who don't care for that look to stop reading.

You would think that with a title like Super Sons, there's not much her for the girls. You'd be very wrong. Two of the characters who team up with Damian Wayne and Jon Kent are Candace and Tilly. They are two very intelligent female whiz kids who do their fair share of crime fighting both physically and mentally. Candace has superpowers and Tilly uses the power of her brain to solve problems. I'm not saying Candace isn't smart, just using the descriptions to differentiate between the two.

Another thing I love about Super Sons is how it's as "realistic" as it can be as a comic book about superheroes. Damian and Jon come across as semi-normal teens throwing together makeshift costumes in their war against crime. Imagine an all ages version of Kick-Ass and you'll understand what I mean. There's a feeling that anyone can be a part of solving problems in their own way.

DC Zoom has definitely delivered with Super Sons: Book One - The Polarshield Project. Here is a book that I can just hand to my kids and let their imaginations go wild. It's a wish fulfillment for a parent who wants to share his love of comic books and superheroes with his sons or daughters. Keep them coming, DC Zoom!
