Superboy #16 review

Superboy #9 review

Captured by bad guy Harvest to fight in his gladiatorial games, Superboy, the Teen Titans and the Legion Lost crew join forces against lackeys the Ravagers. So Part 2 of The Culling crossover is pretty much like Part 1 in last week’s Teen Titans Annual #1 – young metahumans making war, making friends and making like dead […]
