    The main problem this series has is that neither of these two characters are especially likable, but that doesn’t mean they’re not engaging in some ways. Lor-Zod is the less likable of the two, but we’ve seen enough of his desperate striving to please his father to make us invested in his story. SinSon, on the other hand, is a kid who has come from nothing and fought for every single inch he’s gained since then. He’s scrappy, even if he’s rather amoral. And when the two boys get swept away into the belly of a giant space whale, the story takes a turn. They both start to realize how close they are to death, and actually start to work together—before encountering something truly bizarre in the belly of the whale. Tomasi has been writing for a very long time, and I’m hoping these two little chaos agents get to meet the Super-Sons before Tomasi heads off to the world of Ghost Machine.

    Sinister Sons has already proven itself to be separate from and still just as intriguing as the Super-Sons. If the creators can really delve into the Lor-Sinson dynamic with even more depth and honesty, and give the lads some added room to play, then the universe truly is the limits for this feel-good, wholly thoughtful piece of pure comics fun.

    The spawn of Zodd and Sinestro continue their Odd Couple adventure as they fight against themselves and the horrors of outer space. Lor-Zod and Sinson work well together in giving readers quite a few light-hearted chuckles as the two aspiring villains clash heads, as Tomasi clearly hasn’t lost his step since bringing together Jonathan Kent and Damian Warne in a similar fashion. Ultimately, my major complain remains the same as the first issue, wherein artistic duties are split between Vasco Georgiev and David Lafuente in a way that feels jarring for the issue. If you are going to have two artists sharing duties on a single issue, splitting them between scenes that have different themes would work best in telling a story. Ultimately, Sinister Sons is still continuing a good enough opening salvo, but needs to stick to one artistic identity moving forward.
