Time now for the latest issue of Teen Titans. You'll recall that the team 'ported back to the 21st century to find Bunker and Beast Boy fighting for their lives on Tim's yacht, which is apparently the worst-guarded secret headquarters ever.

It's kind of a long story. )
...so, all that happened. *shrug* Reboot, anyone?

Hi ho, gang! Yes, i'm still alive. I got ill in February and was either in hospital or recovering and not allowed to drive til recently, and so missed the last couple issues of Teen Titans. But! Now I have both the ones I missed and the latest in hand! So I figure i'll do one post on the back issues and a separate post for the new. I have here six pages each from Teen Titans #28 and #29 - sounds like a lot, but there's at least one double-page splash from each ish.

You'll recall that when we left our merry band, the remaining Titans had joined Kid Flash and Solstice in the 31st century, where Bart was apprehended and put on trial. Being in the future enabled Bart to break through his Echo-created "witness protection" personality and become the evil revolutionary Bar Torr again, and submitting to the trial was part of his scheme - with all his world's power brokers gathered to watch him hang, his forces were able to strike at all of them at once, to the Titans' dismay.

We now join the battle already in progress )

Stay tuned, gentle readers! Same Titan time, same Titan channel!

Well, this is a difficult posting task - once again Lobdell, Barrows and Merino have committed rampant Double-Page Splash Abuse in crafting their fight scene. So I'm giving you a summary of the fight and three post-fight pages.

Did I miss anything, Red Robin? )

Next Issue: "The End of a Titan!" (But Not the One You Think!)

- or, "Prologue to A Tale of Light and Dark," which is the Titans' next big arc, apparently. 3 whole pages and 2 partial pages for a total of 4, and man did I have a hard time cutting it down to just that. This is a bridge issue, tying up the Death of the Family crossover story and putting pieces into play for this Light and Dark thing, so there's a lot going on here.

Can we go back to the awkward silence? )

Can't swear to it, but I think I may be looking forward to the War of Light and Dark thing.

Now I've tried to be open minded about the DCnU, I really have (to the point of REALLY annoying some people I didn't meant to in the process)

I've given the new Blue Beetle a chance, but it's taking an awfully long, and rather over-violent time to get anywhere as promising as Jaime's original run was.

I've accepted that we'll never see a decent handover from Dick's mentoring of Damian to Bruce taking him on, and that Dick Grayson has had his entire circus past basically turned from "Idyllic childhood" to "Narrowly escaped hell on Earth" and that he was apparently 16 when he first appeared as Robin (which defeats the whole bloody point of the character IMHO) Okay, maybe "accepted" is putting it a bit strongly for that one... but I'm working on it, honest)

I'm resigned to the fact that the unique Oracle has become a generic Batgirl.

I've accepted that the Teen Titans I knew and grew up with now never happened, or didn't happen in anything like the same way it did before. And that Wally West and Garth are unknown quantities now... along with a host of others.

And I'm also aware of how bizarre some of the "We have to make these the iconic versions of the characters" choices have been, when other media with vastly larger viewerships than any comic has had in decades are cheerfully misximg and matching the history to their hearts content, and making it WORK.

But there were some things I thought might be perhaps too low profile to be messed with THAT much,

BTW If you thought Harley's makeover was a bit much, just wait until you see this...

And a couple more pages.....

Three more pages from Teen Titans #8 )

One of the things I really love about the current Teen Titans series, is well, of course Bunker. But honestly, the over all character interactions are GREAT. I actually love them all. Here are just a few moments i loved, oh, and they happen to Feature Bunker! :D
