Of course, you can’t talk “T” titles without bringing DC Comics’ Titans into the mix. We have Titans, Terror Titans, and Teen Titans up for grabs today, but surprisingly, what I enjoyed most this week was Tiny Titans. If you’ve grown up on comics and now have kids (or know kids) who you want to share them with, Tiny Titans is a very enjoyable read for children that won’t turn your brains into mush.
This title is especially hilarious if you’re a fan of the Teen Titans, as Tiny Titans is sprinkled with little in-jokes throughout. For example, Deathstroke the Terminator makes a guest appearance – as the Titans’ substitute teacher. Terra shows up as a bad-tempered little girl who throws rocks at a smitten Beast Boy and is accused of being “two faced” by Wonder Girl and Raven. Also, Robin decides to debut his “new” persona – and costume – as Nightwing, only to be asked if he’s dressed to go disco dancing. It reads like a cross between a superhero comic, Peanuts, and Calvin and Hobbes, with maybe a little Muppet Babies thrown in, and the simple, colorful artwork is delightful.
So come back tomorrow for day “U”! Classic titles like Uncanny X-Men, The Umbrella Academy, and Marvel’s entire line of Ultimates comics and graphic novels will all be 28% off.
So are comics really for kids anymore? Anyone a Titans fan who can fill me in on what I’ve missed since – oh – 1985? Post below!
