CBR Review: Young Liars #15

I recently reviewed Young Liars #15 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Lapham is surprisingly self-critical in this issue, pointing out that the supposed plan of the Spiders from Mars is convoluted and ridiculous — though, Danny could have the specifics wrong — and, also, when Danny tells the others about their true selves, Rivera responds, 'So... in our real lives we’re horrible stereotypes?' That willingness to mock the book’s beginnings is rare only 15 issues in and also points to the improvisational method in which Lapham creates the book, allowing for growth in unexpected directions. If you look at where the book is now and where it was, the early issues do suffer from comparison."
