Countdown to Teen Titans: Beast Boy!

I already read this book and loved it. As much as I love superheroes, I never really read any of the Teen Titans stuff nor did I watch more than a few episodes of the show.

Superman Smashes The Klan by Gene Luen YangMy rating: 4 of 5 starsOne reason that I like Gene Luen Yang so much as a writer is that he is both entertaining and informative.

The Babysitters Coven – Kate Williams

The Babysitters Coven by Kate WilliamsMy rating: 3 of 5 starsThe Babysitters Coven is plugged as Adventures in Babysitting (never seen) meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer (loved), so I wasn't quite sure what to expect from this.
