Elise and Dave look at a milestone issue of The New Teen Titans, No. 8, “A Day in the Lives,” and have a few nits to pick. We ask searching questions, like: is Wonder Girl's feminism consistently presented? (Answer: no, because the comics have to have as many hot babes in them as possible.) Did George Perez make a mistake when he drew college student Wally West's humble middle-class Blue Valley home as a mansion? (Answer: no, because DC comics need everybody to be super stinking rich.) We agree that Vic Stone has the best moments (finally) from this run of numbers 7-9. On either side of the centerpiece, The Fearsome Five return, and there's some even campier stuff with board member-murdering puppets.
