Review: Spider Island: Cloak & Dagger #1 (Marvel)

Spider-Island - Cloak & Dagger #1Writer: Nick Spencer
Artist: Emma Rios

From there the duo have to figure out where they’re going to stay and how they’ll support themselves. While they’re trying to do just that, the Avengers come along to enlist their help in keeping order in the Spider Island segment of the story.
