    I hope Tempest doesn't attack the Titans. That would be ridiculous. I think it's time the Titans fought some actual criminals. It's like the majority of dc books are more concerned with superhero interaction than what a superheroes' job description entails, protecting citizens. I hope Titans and Teen Titans get on track soon. It's like some exec at dc is holding them back. I don"t understand why.

    More like the constant crossovers are holding them back. I wish the Titans would just go out and beat up on some supervillains instead of each other.

    Nice to see Tempest back. I'd rather he joined the Titans than Jericho.

    "I think it's time the Titans fought some actual criminals." You mean, instead of each other? lol. Yeah... I wonder of the other super-teams talk about the Titans like that. "TWe really messed up those sidekicks huh? They spend more time betraying each other and fighting their own, than they do fighting actual criminals..."

    I hope DC dont treat Tempest like another Jericho. But the BIG new is ED BENES art!!!!!Yeah. I love ED's art. I hope this is not just one issue thing.

    "It's like the majority of dc books are more concerned with superhero interaction than what a superheroes' job description entails, protecting citizens." I wrote this earlier and I rethought it. I don't know what made me generalize this way, but I think it's a problem predominantly in Titan books. I can't remember the last villain they've fought that hasn't attacked them directly or was formally a Titan. They don't protect regular people anymore. Also, who's funding the Teens' tower. I mean they used to work for the city of San Francisco, escorting criminals and such, but not lately. As a fanboy, this bugs me.

    I am sorely tempted to make some crack comment about Kory's butt... (nice version: I'd really prefer NOT to see that, thank you).

    The glove of The Flash is yellow?
    Is the new Wally´s suit?

  • At 12:16 PM, Anonymous Memo said…

    Did someone see the cover of the animal man mini? i mean check out the flash costume i think thats the new one

  • At 1:40 PM, Blogger Matt said…

    No way that's the new Flash costume. It looks awful, that Flash looks to be African-American, and that whole story sounds like those "End" stories that Marvel has that show how a super-hero's life will end.

    "I am sorely tempted to make some crack comment about Kory's butt"

    Haha, "crack"... You so funny.

    But honestly, it is a bit obvious. Poor Kory.

    "Haha, "crack"... You so funny."

    Thank you! :)

    (Yes, poor Kory. I miss the good days where Marv and George treated Kory with respect as opposed to today's writers and artists.)

  • At 10:34 AM, Blogger Matt said…

    When on her own merits or seemingly away from the Titans, Kory is treated pretty darn well. With Adam Strange and Animal Man in 52 and Countdown to Adventure, she was portrayed very well, I thought.

  • At 8:06 PM, Anonymous johonny said…

    I enjoy that this Titans comic has a creative team that doesn't appear to include the actual people writing the comic. You get the feeling the comic will continue to be composed of 1 shots and mini-series that never add up to anything until DC actually hires a writer and artist to work on the comic full time as a creative team.

  • At 8:59 AM, Blogger conditionals said…

    @Matt: I'm with you on that. Countdown to Adventure had a great treatment of Starfire. A lot of her Titans-related stuff is just... ugh, embarrassing. Seriously, is anybody getting anything from it?

  • At 6:26 PM, Anonymous Phil Watts, Jr. said…

    Ed "BACKSHOT" Benes strikes again!

    Seriously...this guy needs a more light-hearted book. He needs his own book were he can serve up as much cheesecake as he pleases without it being out-of-place, kinda like the deal Adam Warren has with EMPOWERED. Right now, Ed trying to do serious/sorta-serious books and throwing in backshots at inappropriate times, it just throws everything off (that particular TITANS cover serving a good example).
