Young Justice #12

While Superboy literally cries over being stranded in Skartaris, the rest of Young Justice calls in some reinforcements as Impulse and Wonder Girl (but mostly Bart) are able to convince the Wonder Twins to help their friends, and "borrow" one of Wonder Woman's possessions (although the need for it is a little unclear).

With much of the issue dedicated to adding another couple of teen heroes to the group, and Superboy learning the hard way the crying attracts dinosaurs, Young Justice #12 works mostly as set-up for the issues to follow as the team heads off to save their friend from (again) getting exiled to a strange world.

It is worth noting that Robin has chosen a new name... by stealing the codename of an evil version of himself from an alternate reality? I'll be curious to see if "Drake" will last (or if the various teen heroes decide to make a running joke out of such a bizarre choice). Whatever he chooses to call himself, it looks like Tim Drake has himself a team to investigate S.T.A.R. Labs and what happened to his best friend. Worth a look.
