Review: Marvel Team-Up #37

Review: Marvel Team-Up #36

Spider-Man is zapped while breaking up a bank robbery and wakes to find himself imprisoned next to the Frankenstein Monster. What sounds like a comic with some monstrous potential turns out to be a ho-hum affair from the creative team of Gerry Conway, Sal Buscema and Vince Colletta.

Review: Starfire #1

A “pampered serving girl” discovers love and heartbreak on her way to becoming the leader of the human resistance. David Michelinie’s story isn’t the most original, but Starfire does get a boost from the art of Mike Vosburg and Bob Smith.

Review: Shanna, the She-Devil #1

Disgusted by mankind’s predilection for guns, a veterinarian takes an assignment in Africa that puts her at odds with poachers. Perhaps there’s a good comic-book story somewhere in this premise, but this debut issue – by Carole Seuling, Steve Gerber, George Tuska and Vince Colletta – isn’t it.

Review: Detective Comics #467

Review: Teen Titans #44

After an extended hiatus, the Teen Titans come back together thanks to a trap by Doctor Light. Following a nearly four-year break from publication, the Titans’ regular series resumes with this sub-par outing from the creative team of Paul Levitz, Bob Rozakis, Pablo Marcos and Bob Smith.
