Latour nails the Father-Son, Superhero team dynamic in the debut issue of Spider-Ben & Spider-Pete. It's fun watching the plucky and carefree Peter play off his more grizzled, working class Uncle Ben as the stop crime in NYC. Love these two and can't wait to see more of them in the future!

While I wasn't expecting Adam Glass to take this kind of direction with the Teen Titans, I can say that I was definitely surprised! I enjoyed how each character was portrayed in this book, even if it may have seemed out of character at some moments. Each story got me more invested, and now I cannot wait to see what the team will be like once they come together! Consider me onboard.

There are generally two types of silly comics - those that are just silly, and those who embrace their silliness and use it to elevate themselves to new heights. Aquaman paired with Jabberjaw is a match made in heaven - you can't help but enjoy it and its goofiness.

Super Sons, since the very beginning of their comic run, were able to realistically portray two main characters, giving them necessary depth and personalities - something you rarely see with young protagonists, unfortunately. That's one of the very reasons I've enjoyed reading about them so much.
