Inside Peek: Tiny Titans

Newsarama reports on Tiny Titans: "Last month, we brought you the first word about Tiny Titans, a new Johnny DC title at DC by Art Baltazar and Franco Aureliani (Patrick the Wolf Boy). The larger conceit of the series – “Tiny Titans” is the cartoon that’s shown in the DC Universe, featuring very young versions of the Teen Titans.

The main conceit though – to make good comics for kids. As series editor Jann Jones told us in August, “When I moved into the role of Coordinating Editor and started doing the sign off on the kids’ books of the Johnny DC line, I saw that they were really good, solid books, but I didn’t feel like I could give them to a four year old or a five year old, or just any kid in general. Despite their connection to the animated projects, they were still dealing with the more serious issues – cases where if the heroes don’t save the day, it’s implied, or shown that people will die. I think that’s kind of heavy to put on a younger audience."
