When Devil Dinosaur, Lunella Lafayette’s best friend and partner in crime-busting – who she also shares a mental link with, leading to amusing mind-swap situations – starts acting erratically before disappearing entirely, it’s up to Lunella to find out where he is and what’s happened to him. Her mission causes her to cross paths with the more youthful incarnation of Spider-Man (aka Miles Morales) – but can they work together to find out what’s happened to the big, red, prehistoric creature? And who’s responsible for his disappearance?

With Devil Dinosaur out of the picture for much of the duration of this issue, it’s lacking a lot of the silly (but fun) mind-swapping shenanigans that usually occur in Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur comics. The tale told here is intended to kick off a short series of team-ups, however, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that Moon Girl herself is brought to the fore.

It’s a good introduction to the character, with the briefest of exposition as to how she’s so smart at such a young age, as well as why she has such a close bond with the dinosaur she usually teams up with. It’s nicely written, fast-paced and entertaining; it’s a shame, however, that Lunella doesn’t get top billing, because it’s clearly a Moon Girl story, rather than a Miles Morales one.

Though it’s hardly groundbreaking and won’t win any awards, it’s an easy, light hearted read that can be enjoyed by readers of any age. There’s only light peril involved and nothing inappropriate for younger readers, who are most likely to get a kick out of seeing two young heroes teaming up to solve a mystery, outwit adults and kick a few butts along the way.
