DC has announced Tiny Titans #12 is getting new content to tie it into the Faces of Evil month at the company.
In this special â€œFaces of Mischiefâ€ issue, see what happens in the average day of the faculty of Sidekick Elementary as we follow the antics of Principal Slade and Trigon. The Tiny Titans have their own ideas of what goes on in the Teacherâ€™s Lounge â€” but how close are they to the truth?
Trigon – yup, that’s a good one for the issue.Â The content origingally slated for the issue has been bumped to lucky number 13, scheduled to arrive in February.Â Tiny Titans #12 is expected in stores on January 21.
In this issue, written by Judd Winick, with art by Julian Lopez & Prentis Rollins and a cover by Joe Benitez, Raven’s half-brothers return to claim her and unite Trigon’s bloodline, forcing her to choose which ties are stronger: the family she was born to, or the new family she has made.
The second issue of Titans didn’t do too bad, coming in at #30 in the Top 300 Comics for May.Â Did fan reaction to more recent issues cause the change, or did issue #5 get solicited before it was written?
Or – “Can You Catch The Same Lightning In A Different Bottle?”
Here in the halls of Stately Spoilers Manor, we operate pretty much independently.Â So, as I was writing this, I was unaware that Josh was writing a review of the same issue.Â But, seeing as how it’s already written, (and I kind of don’t have time to write another just this instant) I figured, what the heck, why not see how we BOTH felt about the issue, and thenÂ probably never do this again.Â Heh… Â In 1984, or so the story goes, DC Comics was in dire straits.Â The company was bleeding money, very few of their iconic characters seemed very relavant, and there were, apparently, rumors that DC would be no more within months…Â Then, Marv Wolfman and George Perez launched ‘The New Teen Titans,’ a book that took DC’s kid sidekicks, added a dash of X-Men-style plotting, and managed to generate a bona fide classic (and, some say, bringing DC back from the brink.)Â 25 or so years later, those issues are remembered fondly by everyone, and every few years, it is decided that it’s time to get the band back together and see if the Titans can, once again, become the 600 pound gorilla of comics.Â Is Judd Winick the man to reignite the fires of Titan-mania?
Iâ€™m not sure anyone reviewed Titans #2 here at Major Spoilers (probably for the best), as there was a lot of ill-feeling towards the second issue in this, DCâ€™s attempt to reunite its ’80â€™s classic. Subsequently, there is a certain measure of slack that can be cut considering that DC is starting off telling a new story from page one (for a given value of â€œnew storyâ€).
– or, Iâ€™m writing this comic and Iâ€™ll have as many boob shots as possible!
The year 2008 came with the full knowledge that DC would soon see the initiation of its Final Crisis. Countdown to Final Crisis was coming to a close, with week after week of mediocrity robbing what may or may not be the best â€˜Crisisâ€™ yet of any credibility simply by association.
But all that â€“ no matter how good Countdown finishes off and no matter how good Final Crisis will be â€“ pales in to insignificance by Titans #1.
And no, I do not believe that is overstating it at all.
