Teen Titans Academy #15 review

And so we say farewell to the latest Teen Titans series, which has the distinction of being the most frustrating superhero series in years. Some issues have been great, more have been terrible. Which means that the book tanked and the promising new characters – Gorilla Gregg, Stitch, Summer, Diego – are likely now waiting […]
