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.
Because weâ€™ve already read Countdown: Arena
Wow.Â If DC gets any more screwed up with its timeline, weâ€™re going to need some kind of crisis to fix…it… all… well crap.Â Here then is another title that is set in the current fiasco of the DC Universe, that attempts to expand the timeline, but only succeeds in causing the continuity junkies to freak out.Â For those into villains, this issue delivers as Sean McKeever returnsÂ us to the Dark Side Club.
It appears that the Tiny Titans series is a success (10,636 for July), so why not take it to the next level and bring the big guns into the game too?Â Enter DCU: Elementary.Â The good guys and the bad guys hanging out in the hallways of elementary school.Â No release date announced yet, but the pictures sure look purdy.
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?
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.
