So I guess everything worked out okay with that creepy winged monster dude? I’m kind of resigned to the fact that I’m only getting half a story (and not even that these days, more like only a third) by just reading Superboy, but it is disconcerting that every issue starts off in a completely different place to the previous one. That said, this was a fun issue, with Superboy and Wonder Girl engaging in fairly amusing flirtation in a crazy ‘only in comics’ situation. I loved the visual of the Island being shaped like a question mark, and it’s always fun to see superheroes fight dinosaurs. The interaction between Superboy and Wonder Girl, was, as I said, pretty funny, and I liked how Lobdell teased the reader with an almost-kiss. If I had the stomach, I’d venture onto Tumblr to see what kind of feels this caused, but Tumblr terrifies me. Sebastian Fiumara’s art was very good, I love RB Silva on this book, but Fiumara made for a strong fill-in, even though his work is a lot less cartoonish. I just hope I’ll get some answer to the mystery of this Island in Superboy #11, rather than that issue picking up somewhere completely random, but I doubt it.

You'll have to pick up Teen Titans #10 to find out the secret of Mystery Island :-D Next issue Superboy's teaming up with Bunker.

I'm kind of resigned to picking up both Teen Titans and Superboy - they've been pretty interconnected since he attacked them around issues #4 and #5.

I am exactly the opposite. I stopped buying both Teen Titans and Superboy because I hated the fact that I had to read one, to understand the other. If Superboy stood on its own, I may have continued to read it but Teen Titans is just so BAD that I couldn't stomach it any longer.

As far as I'm concerned, this crossover did the opposite of what crossovers are supposed to do. Rather than pick up new titles, I actually dropped this one. I was enjoying it up until then. So good job, DC.
