I love it when comics embrace their inner silliness.

Preview cover for Superman Family Adventure...


From the DCU Blog

“Superman is here! And he’s bringing his family!!! AW YEAH!” said Baltazar. “Working on SUPERMAN FAMILY ADVENTURES is truly a highlight to my career. Everything you know about the Superman mythos is here in this comic. You will see Bizarro, Parasite, Brainiac, Metallo and yes, even Lex Luthor! Writing and drawing bad guys is really cool! We had bad guys in TINY TITANS, but this time, they fight the heroes! ACTION! ADVENTURE! HUMOR! BIG GORILLAS! GIANT ROBOTS! LOIS! JIMMY! PERRY! and…SUPER PETS!!!! Whaaaa? Yep, that’s a true story right there! SUPERMAN FAMILY ADVENTURES is gonna rock! Aw yeah Krypton!”

“SUPERMAN!!! Are you kidding me? SUPERMAN!!!” continued Franco. “Ask any comic creator and this will be the number one guy they want to work on!! I’m definitely excited to be able to work with my good friend Art Baltazar on the all-new SUPERMAN FAMILY ADVENTURES. The book is going to be filled with amazing adventures, stories and humor featuring the entire cast of the Superman family – Lois, Jimmy, Supergirl, Superboy and even a few surprises you haven’t seen in a while like Fuzzy The Krypto Mouse. You should come along because this is going to be a fun ride!”




Fuzzy the Krypto Mouse? YAY! :)

A fun comic I can read to my daughter without having to constantly look at the cast pages because I don't read Titans! YESSSSSSS.

"And this is... uh... hm... I guess this is Starfire's sister? *page page page* Blackfire, that's right. And this guy... is... a monkey... with an exposed brain? I... y'know what kid, I have no idea."

some of the Tiny Titans are pretty obscure and given that the references and jokes are often aimed at the New Teen Titan era reader as well as the more modern ones, there's always something to look up!

And then, there are the pets - some canon, some new!

I'm going to say something that will probably make me a leper in these here parts...I didn't care for Tiny Titans. It was funny for the first few pages of the first issue I tried, but it got boring REAL quick. It was just "cute kids doing cute things" over and over again.

I tried to picture how I would have reacted to it as a little kid, and the oldest age I could think of where I would have enjoyed this was...six, seven, maybe? In terms of "comics for kids," it felt less like good comics for kids and more what adults think are good comics for kids, which seem to me like two seperate things.

This, though, sounds a lot better in that regard--this looks like this won't talk down to kids so much, but rather just tell fun stories that are appropriate for all-ages.

So yeah, I hope this stays around for a LONG time. :)

I'm not really into Tiny Titans either, but that's because I have a specific kind of "cute" that I like, and Tiny Titans didn't fall under it.

At least he made changes to the DCnU Supergirl costume.

Just what I was thinking. "Oh look, she remembered to put on her skirt..."

It's actually a lot cuter with a skirt attached to it!

Speaking of cute things, your icon is one of them.

Your icon is just plain gorgeous, on the other hand :D

Is there a reason Conner and Kara only have four fingers on each hand whereas Lois and Clark have the standard five on each hand? :/

Other than that, it looks like this will be a pretty neat book for kids, and adults too maybe.

I always enjoy Tiny Titans, and the Superpets books for kids are fantastic (and finally got my son reading...)

I can't imagine adults won't be buying this!

Cartoons rules - don't question how many fingers a toon has on his hands!

DO WANT.

Though Kon's outfit is sorta weird. It's like the baby of Kon's pre and post-DCnU outfits.

This looks pretty cute. Not sure if I'll be picking it up, but I'll certainly be considering it.

I was sad with Tiny Titans' cancellation...but I'm actually glad we'll got this now!

Though I'm not a fan of the New 52-inspired looks!
(also, this is a much better and cuter Supergirl^^)
