Within a year of becoming Brooklyn’s Spider-Man, Miles Morales has queued a list of his five most frequently answered questions such as: is he old enough to be fighting crime? Does he have a fear of falling? Is he related to *that* other Spider-Man from Queens? But the most important curated question is the last one on his list: “What does a superhero do when they’re not saving the world?” 

Miles Morales: Shock Waves” written by Justin Reynolds (“Early Departures”) and illustrated by Pablo Leon aims to answer that question.

TOKYOPOP’s “Deko-Boko Sugar Days” Review: a sweet BL romance

TOKYOPOP LOVE X LOVE
