The Brave & The Bold: Batman & The Hawk & The Dove
Here's a very well-written B & B team-up from Alan Brennert ( with art by the mighty Jim Aparo, natch ) that's about something not too often tackled ie. what happens to teen super-heroes when the world moves on and they have to grow up.
As the story says, The Hawk & The Dove were real products of the '60's, and here, as the '80's begin, the battling brothers find themselves very much out of step, both in and out of costume.
As even Brave & The Bold ( by far the best of the team-up books in my opinion ) occasionally satisfied itself with simple fight scenes, this one, with it's welcome and varied characterizations, is a bit of a pleasant surprise.
